Tata Tigor Styleback Bookings Open At Rs 5,000
Tata Tigor Styleback is now available for bookings across authorized Tata dealerships at a token amount of Rs 5000. The subcompact sedan is the third product under Tata’s IMPACT design language and is based on its stellar hatchback Tiago. Taking comprehensive inspiration from Tiago in cosmetic terms, Tigor additionally packs new tech and integrated boot round the back. Gearing up for launch on March 29, 2017, the Tiago based subcompact sedan is expected to carry a lucrative price tag.
On the outside, the styleback sports design elements including three-dimensional headlamps with smoked lens, sporty black bezel, sharp tail-lamps and the quintessential humanity line that accentuate its sporty character. The well laid-out cabin is designed ergonomically offering multiple utility storage points and comfortable space for occupants. Furthermore, the dual-tone cockpit, premium seats with bolsters, finely knitted roof liner and customizable air vents induce upmarket feel.
To be rolled out in petrol and diesel fuel options, the Tigor carline will be available with a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.05-litre Revotorq oil burner mated to the conventional five-speed manual transmission. Both the engines come with multi-drive modes-Eco and City. On one hand, the Eco mode stimulates increased fuel economy, whereas on the other hand the City mode offers better performance. It is to be noted that both the engines have been carried over from Tiago hatchback. Upon its launch, the Tigor sedan will go up against rivals Maruti Swift Dzire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire and Volkswagen Ameo in the subcompact sedan space.

Tata Tigor Price in India
|Minimum||Rs 4 lakh|
|Maximum||Rs 5.5 lakh|
Having failed twice in the segment, Tata has high expectations from Tigor. The sedan shares most of its body parts with Tiago which makes it largely identical to the hatchback. This also saves on pricing, since both the vehicles are built on the same platform and share comprehensive design cues along with body parts. Another aspect that will help curb pricing is the length that measures less than four meters. This qualifies Tigor for the low cess levied on sub-four meter vehicles. Even the engines powering the sedan comply with the norms for the sub-four meter cars.
These altogether indicate aggressive pricing for the sedan which is expected to fall in the vicinity of Rs 4 lakh to Rs 5.5 lakh.
