The rising demand of automatic cars and limited options make Tata Tigor a desirable option for the buyers, who can now opt for two variants with AMT gearbox.
Tata Motors has shuffled the Tigor compact sedan lineup and replaced the existing XZA variant with an affordable XMA variant and top-spec XZA+ variant. Both the variants get an AMT gearbox and are launched to strengthen the Tigor’s line-up, that competes against Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Ford Aspire. The Tata Tigor XMA is priced at Rs 6.39 lakh and Tata Tigor XZA+ is priced at Rs 7.24 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).
With the launch of the XMA variant, Tata Tigor becomes the most affordable AMT equipped sedan in India. This trim gets all the features as the manual counterpart, which includes a Harman-tuned music system with Bluetooth connectivity, centre armrest in the rear seat, reverse parking sensors and driving modes.
In terms of safety, the XMA gets dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, cornering stability control, speed-dependent auto door-locking function and an engine immobiliser. For the Tata Tigor XZA+, it is now the top-spec version and carries over the same equipment as the top-end manual XZ+.
Apart from the features on the XMA variant, the XZA+ gets additional features such as a 7.0-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, an eight-speaker Harman sound system, 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, auto-fold ORVMs with integrated LED turn indicators and dual-chamber projector headlamps.
Both the variants are powered by the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine which produces 85 hp and 114 Nm torque. Both the engines are mated to this AMT gearbox unit which features anti-stall and crawl functions. As for the manual variants, both of them are priced Rs 44000 cheaper than the respective AMT versions. Tata will also launch the facelifted Tigor by the end of year and will replace the existing engine with a BS-VI engine and will also eliminate the diesel engine.
