Tata Motors today announced pre-bookings for its new small car Tigor.
"Anyone can book the car for Rs 5,000," the company said in a statement. Tigor comes with a break-free and revolutionary design, set to build on the Tata Motors' existing passenger vehicle portfolio, Mayank Pareek, president for passenger vehicles business unit said. He claimed that the car has received an "overwhelming response" during the preview.
The Tigor is the third product embodying the 'Impact Design' philosophy and will be available in both petrol and diesel variants and will come with Tata Motors' Revotron 1.2 L (petrol engine) and Revotorq 1.05L (diesel engine). Tigor’s mechanical features will not be much different from Tiago as well. It will sport 1.2 Revotron petrol with 85 hp and 1.05 Revotorq diesel for 70 hp. Both engines are available with multi-drive modes – Eco and City. The Eco mode optimises engine performance for superior fuel economy while the City mode, which is also the default mode, optimises engine output for the best of both, a peppy driving experience and efficiency.
Initially Tigor will be launched with a five-speed manual gearbox. However, the automatic edition will be launched as well but initially the AMT feature will be added to Tiago first.
Tata Motors has changed the name compact sedan Kite 5 to Tigor and will be launching the car in India, in April. The Indian car manufacturer had already showcased the car at the Auto Expo 2016 in New Delhi.
Tata Motors recently launched Tiago Easy-Shift AMT recently. Priced at Rs 5.73 lakh, (ex-showroom Mumbai) and Rs 5.39 lakh, (ex-showroom Delhi).
