2020 Tata Tigor Facelift will come with updated exterior while the interior could get new feature additions
Tata Motors introduced the Tigor subcompact sedan in the domestic market back in March 2017. It sits in a highly competitive segment rivalling the likes of Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire and Volkswagen Ameo. The Tigor has been aggressively priced and is quite an attractive proposition in the sub-four-metre sedan space.
While it could not replicate the success of segment leader Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Honda Amaze, it has always found itself in the mid-card. Surprisingly enough, in just over 20 months of its market debut, Tata launched the facelifted in November 2018 with minor cosmetic changes and feature revisions.
Tata has already been spotted testing the mid-life update of the Tigor. While the refreshed best-selling Tiago is expected to arrive during the course of this year, the facelifted Tigor may only arrive sometime next year as there definitively has to exist sometime between the last update and the upcoming one.
The rendering image of the 2020 Tata Tigor will give you some idea how the forthcoming model with a slightly grown-up design will look like. It will be equipped with revised front grille accompanying the reworked headlamps and new front and rear bumpers. The rear end could get a new set of tail lamps as well.
Currently, the Tigor is sold with one petrol and one diesel engine option. The 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine develops a maximum power of 85 PS and 114 Nm while the 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel engine kicks out 70 PS and 140 Nm. Both the engines are connected to a five-speed manual transmission as standard while an AMT is retailed only with the petrol motor.
Expect the 2020 Tata Tigor to have structural updates to comply with the stringent crash test regulations (full-frontal impact, off-set-frontal impact and side impact) coming into effect by October 2019. The petrol engine will also be upgraded to meet BSVI standards but the oil-burner could be shown the door due to high costs involved in upgrading.
The next brand new launch from Tata will be the Hornbill micro SUV based on the H2X concept showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The seven-seater version of Harrier dubbed Cassini will go on sale later this year to strengthen the brand’s SUV lineup.
