Tata Motors has launched the facelifted versions of the Tiago and Tigor. The Tiago is its small hatchback, while the Tigor is the sub-4 metre sedan. The Tiago is now priced from Rs 4.6 lakh onward, ex-showroom, while the Tigor retails at Rs 5.75 lakh onward, ex-showroom.
The biggest update to both models is the switch to Tata BS6 engines. Both the new Tiago and Tigor facelift have dropped the diesel motor from the lineup and retained only the 1.2 litre petrol mill rated at 86 bhp and 113 Nm. It can be had with either a five speed manual gearbox or a five speed AMT automatic.
The styling of both models has been updated, to differentiate them from the outgoing models. The headlamps and grille are narrower, and now get Tata’s ‘Humanity Line’ design element. The front bumper has more edgy styling, and the fog lamps sit higher in it. The bonnet for both has been raised, to make sure they pass the new pedestrian crash safety regulations. At the rear, the bumper and tail lights have been changed, with the lights getting new inserts. The interior of both models have got new fabrics and other minor tweaks. The Tigor gets projector headlamps, LED DRLs, and a push button start as part of its feature set. The Tiago joins the Tigor in offering a 7 inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a digital instrument cluster, climate control, drive modes, electrically adjustable and foldable mirrors, and 15-inch alloy wheels.
Both the Tiago and Tigor have achieved a Global NCAP safety rating of four stars for adult occupants and three stars for child occupants. Standard features for both models include two airbags, ABS, EBD, corner stability control, and rear parking sensors.
The Tiago’s price hike makes it Rs 20,000 dearer than the outgoing BS lV model, and it competes with the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Hyundai Santro, and Datsun Go. The Tigor price has increased by Rs 10,000 over the outgoing model, and it competes with the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire, and the recently launched Hyundai Aura.
