A lot has already been written in the media about the upcoming compact sedan of Tata, Tigor. It does not therefore come as a surprise that Tigor, the company's next pitch in the growing compact sedan segment, has put a lot at stake since it is "not just a car" for the car-maker, but has also generated high expectations.
Tata Tigor is poised for its launch in the Indian market on March 29 and the new sedan has started making its way to the showrooms of the company ahead of its official launch. The microsite of Tigor has also gone live and the soon-to-be-launched model is open for bookings across dealerships.
Tigor can be booked online or at the dealers of the company on a down-payment of Rs 5,000.
Having driven Tata Tigor, we quite liked how the sedan played out especially the rear and the boot of the car. For insights into the car, read our extensive review of Tata Tigor here.
Under the hood, Tigor will pack petrol and diesel engine options. While the Revotron 1.2-litre petrol engine will churn out 83.8bhp of power at 6,000rpm and 114Nm of torque at 3,500rpm, the Revotorq 1.05-litre diesel engine will be tuned to churn out 69bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. Both the engines will be mated to five-speed manual transmission.
