Tata Motors, however, ensures that the issue will not hamper with the performance or the safety of the vehicle even without the fix. Even then, we advise that you ensure the issue is rectified at the earliest possible time. The Tata Tigor sits below the Zest Compact sedan in Tata’s line-up and can be had with one of two three-cylinder motors-- an 85 hp 1.2-litre petrol and a 70 hp 1.05-litre diesel. The petrol version of the Tata Tiago can be had with a 5-speed manual transmission or 5-speed AMT, while the diesel engine only gets the 5-Speed manual. Tata Motors recently launched a mid-spec special edition model called the Buzz for the Tigor which gets a few cosmetic changes.


Prices of the Tata Tigor range between Rs 4.84 lakh to Rs 7.19 lakh and takes on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, the Honda Amaze and the Ford Aspire although it undercuts the price of most of the other cars on the list by a good lakh on both ends.
