Indian customers these days adore the compact cars in every segment, be it is a SUV, sedan or any other. Compact cars in the recent times have managed to take hold of the market due to their practicality, looks, inner space and most importantly, they are pocket friendly. Tata Motors working on the same philosophy introduced the compact sedan Tiago in 2017. It’s been over a year and recently the car received its mid-life update. The new 2018 Tata Tigor gets subtle cosmetic and feature updates. Mechanically, it remains unchanged.
Tata Tiago on the outside looks appealing and shares its design cues with the sibling Tiago hatch. The vehicle is built on the IMPACT design language. At the front, car gets honeycomb radiator grille, short overhangs and chrome finished headlights. Side profile gets new 15-inch dual tone alloy wheels. The rear part is completely different, it bears no resemblance to its sibling Tiago hatch and sports the new elements. The LED high mounted stop light and revised taillights enhance the overall looks. Tata Tigor is now offered in 6 different colour schemes namely Titanium Grey, Roman Silver, Berry Red, Egyptian Blue, Pearlescent White and Espresso Brown.
Inner profile of the 2018 Tata Tigor has been drastically changed, the cabin now features new dual black and grey colour scheme. The compact sedan gets some cues from the Tiago sporting similar layout. The few of the changes includes redesigned automatic climate control, the wheelbase of the car is extended by 50mm as compared to Tiago, which makes way for more space inside. Passengers sitting at the back seat now feel more comfort. Feature list includes new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Android Auto, voice command based navigation and MirrorLink. It also gets steering mounted control, Bluetooth connectivity, fast charging slot and music streaming.
As far as the specification is concerned, Tata Tigor is powered by the 1.2L , three cylinder petrol engine that can generate the power output of 85PS and belts out the maximum torque of 114Nm. It’s another engine is the 1.05L diesel one, the mill can produce the power output of 70PS and yields the peak torque of 140Nm. Both the power trains come mated to 5-speed manual transmission. However, the petrol motor comes with with the option of automated transmission.
For the better safety, Tata Tigor comes loaded with advanced features. They features include dual airbags, park assist with rear sensors, front fog lamps, follow-me -home lamps, seat belt along with pretensioners and load limiters, rear defogger, ABS, EBD, Corner stability control, speed dependent auto door locks and park assist with camera.
Tata Tigor is available in five different trims including XE, XM, XZ, XZ+ and XZA. In terms of pricing, Tata Tigor base variant XE is tagged at Rs. 5.2 lakh while its diesel trim is offered at the price range of Rs. 6.09 lakh. The mid-range variant XM is available at the price tag of Rs. 5.55 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 6.41 lakh for the diesel one. Tata Tigor’s XZ trim is tagged at Rs. 5.95 lakh and Rs. 6.84 lakh for the petrol and diesel respectively. The top of the line trim for the petrol XZ+ is available at Rs. 6.49 lakh and Rs. 7.38 lakh for the diesel. Tata Tigor’s only AMT variant available as XZA petrol is tagged at Rs. 6.65 lakh.
Tata Tigor is pitted against Honda Amaze, Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Ford Aspire, Volkswagen Ameo and Hyundai Xcent in the sub-4 meter segment.


Stepping inside and one will find familiar interior as that of Tiago hatchback. But this time around, the cabin gets black and grey treatment along with faux leather seats finished in titanium grey. The seats are knitted with roof liner. Tata has hit the right chord with another biggest change in the form of 7-inch capacitive touchscreen unit which has placed this car in the line of the contemporaries. The new infotainment is compatible with Android Auto. The system is provided by Harman with 4-speakers and 4-tweeters to groove into the music. The infotainment also supports USB, Bluetooth, Aux-In and iPod connectivity, voice command functionality and image and video playback. The reversing camera also relays feeds on to the same screen. The lower variants continue to come with the 5-inch ConnectNext infotainment system.
The car now comes with digital controls for the automatic climate control system. The air conditioner is excellent in terms of quickly cooling the cabin but is slightly loud even if run at low fan speed. The placement is also a bit odd as between the switches there is a lot of empty space which could have been used for other stuffs. The aircons located at the extreme end of the dashboard gets contrasting exterior colour which does add a sense of richness. The Tiago features cooled glovebox while the instrument cluster is the same as of Tiago housing the two silver-coloured pods featuring speedometer and tachometer. The center of the instrument gives info on distance covered, temperature, average fuel economy and trip meter.
Further, the steering wheel is identical and so is the gear stick. The car comes with 12V socket placed between the front seats and another one on the central console adjacent to USB and Aux-in ports. The door panels have fabric highlights though a little more padding could have been better. The black colour of the door panels and the grey coloured plastics feels a bit dull. In terms of stowage, there are cubby holes to put your wallet, phones or loose coins.
One of the major highlights of the interiors is the rear seat. As the wheelbase is lengthier than the hatchback sibling by 50mm, the space inside especially the leg and knee room is ample. The angle of the seatback is more reclined than the Tiago with the overall experience of the seats is comfy as they extend from pillar to pillar. Moreover, they are well-cushioned and with the addition of centre armrest there is increased sense of richness and comfort. Even for the tall person there is more than average knee-room at the back which is really an impressive thing in an under 4 meter car. Headroom is also good while the seat is wide enough to absorb three reasonably sized adults.
Coming to the front seats, they are comfortable as well with the top end model giving height adjustment functionality. However, the placement of the seat is a little upwards and a tall person’s head might be touching the roof. In terms of features, one will find one of the best music systems in the car as the company has collaborated with Harman. The central console also features digital controls for FATC while image and video can also be played on the device till the speed of 5kmph.
Another interesting thing in the same centre console is the placement of boot release button. The driver can release the boot by pressing the button located on the center console adjacent to the ECO driving mode switch. Though the release button comes handy, it only works when the ignition is on. And there is no pull release button so from outside you either have to press the light button on the key fob or insert the key to open the boot. The top variant also features reverse camera with rear parking sensors. Other features in the car include electrically adjustable ORVMs, interior lamps with theatre dimming and collapsible grab handles.


The Tigor is a fresh offering in the compact sedan segment. As per conventional norms, under-4 meter compact sedans are crafted by adding boot to the hatchbacks in order to make them look like a sedan. But Tigor is a bit different than other traditional cars as it has been given a lot of thought process in design. The vehicle looks pleasing to eyes especially from the rear which somewhat remind us of BMW X6. In the latest version, the headlights of the car have been slightly tweaked with new dual-chambered projector headlamps finished in chrome.
The grille styling has also been changed with the front fascia getting new diamond shaped with chrome accents. Moreover, the chrome treatment is also given to the fog lamps on the bumper. And in the facelift also, daytime running have not been included, may be company thinks it’s irrelevant and adds to the overall cost. Apart from this, the front end looks as cheerful as before. Coming to the side profile, here is what the real difference in design comes into the picture. Starting from the B-pillar, the rear half of the car is completely different from its alter-ego hatch sibling. And with rolling roofline, the coupe-like design lends it a more expensive car look. The carmaker has added new 15-inch alloy wheels besides the standard 14-inch wheels being offered in lower variants.
At the rear, the best angle to view the car is the three-quarter especially when looked with the new clear lens tail lamps. The chrome strip beautifully runs across the breadth of the bootlid and merges into the tail lights. The car now comes with shark fin antenna which does add a sense of sportiness. And the roof-mounted spoiler incorporating LED strip across the width of the stop lamp raises its appeal a notch further. A new colour option named Egyptian Blue has also been added. Overall, Tata has really upped the ante with Tigor as it is one of the best looking sedans in the class.

Mileage Running Cost

Tata has done a lot of tweaks to various components to enhance the fuel efficiency of this vehicle. The carmaker claims that the petrol engine is able to deliver 20.3kmpl while the diesel one can return 24.7kmpl, certified by ARAI. The petrol automatic gives the same mileage as that of manual, however, real world figures might be different.

Comfort Suspension

Although the components are the same as that of Tiago, the overall suspension system has been tweaked to suit the weight and weight distribution of the sedan. And this is clearly evident when you drive the car over uneven road patches as it absorbs the bumps elegantly. It even doesn’t feel firm as the body control is quite good.
A bit of difference can be seen in ride and handling as petrol variant comes with 15-inch rims with 175/60-section tyres and the diesel one features 14-inch rims with 175/65 tyres. As a result, the diesel one feels a bit stiller on highway. The petrol variant feels more keen and responsive especially at corners. The steering wheel is nicely weighted and while it does not give sharp response, the suspension adds a bit of confidence to it.

Engine Performance

The petrol and diesel engines are identical to what Tata is offering in its hatchback, there aren’t any changes in the facelifted version. The 1.2L 3-cylinder Revotron petrol engine produces 85PS and 114Nm of torque, mated to five-speed manual gearbox while there is also choice of Automated Manual Transmission. The diesel one on the other hand, is powered by 1.05L 3-cylinder Revotorq motor that continues to offer the same 70PS and 140Nm of peak torque. But as the sedan is 40-50kgs heavier than the hatchback version, the 5-speed manual transmission has been tweaked to offer appropriate drivability.
While on the go, the engines are quiet smooth and idle but tends to get noisy if revved hard. The petrol motor is a better in this respect as it feels energetic even at low speeds. The throttle response is pretty quick at part throttle which let you easily manoeuvre in city traffic. However, the gear ratios being used in the petrol version is aimed at churning good mileage and this takes away some of the peppiness of the engine. For example, the driver can hit the 140kmph mark in the third gear. Also being a powerful engine, the acceleration is quick and better torque curve since the power does not fizzle out as suddenly as of diesel’s. The engine is also a better cruiser on freeways.
Things become different when driving the petrol Tigor with AMT. The automatic variant comes with creep feature which works pretty well in the slow moving traffic. In terms of performance, while the sedan does a nice job in pottering at low speeds, the AMT gearbox on the other hand makes it obvious that it’s not the most sophisticated ones in the league. Once the car builds up speed, it tends to feel lethargic, however, it steadily smoothens up once the speed is at 50kmph and that too in the third gear.
Coming to the diesel Tigor, is not as smooth as the petrol one and quite dull to drive. It is nimble at its best in a limited manner. The turbo lag is evident under 2000 rpm and you will start getting turbo experience at around 2300 rpm, but it fizzles out after 3500 rpm. So, everytime you want faster drive, whether in urban areas or on highways, you have to work a lot on the gearbox. The agility of the gearshift is also not as good as one can experience in the petrol version, especially when you try to shift from 2nd to 3rd gear. The car really needs a bigger diesel engine to fulfil the missing gap. Both the car have got Eco and City driving modes same as available in the hatchback version.

Braking Safety

In terms of braking, there is lack of initial bite, however, stability during hard braking is good in the petrol variant. Further, the carmaker has equipped Tigor with Bosch’s 9th gen ABS and EBD system which also offers some corner stability to the car. The car comes with standard dual airbags and driver seat belt reminder. And it’s quite surprising that ABS with EBD hasn’t yet included in the standard safety kit looking at what rivals are offering.
Other safety features in the car include day and night IRVM, parking sensor, park assist with camera, rear defogger, follow-me home and approach lamps and speed dependant auto door locks among others.
