The new Titanium Grey colour replaces the Striker Blue in both the Tiago and Tigor’s lineup
Tata Motors has added a new paint scheme to the existing palette of the Tiago and Tigor. Ever since its market entry, the Tiago has been lauded for its packed features list and tough build quality and in recent months, it has climbed up to averaging 8,000 units a month in sales. In order to capitalise on its popularity, Tata introduced AMT option last year and now a new colour scheme has come in place.
It seems like the dispatch of the new Titanium Grey colour has been underway across the authorised dealerships in India for both the Tiago and Tigor subcompact sedan. The Grey option replaces the Striker Blue which was not a desirable choice among customers but it still looked unique blending well with the alloys.
Apart from the new Titanium Grey, only sold in XM, XT and XZ trims, the Tiago and Tigor are offered in the regular colour choices such as Berry Red, Espresso Brown, Titanium Grey, Platinum Silver and Pearlescent White. Despite being a styling sedan, the Tigor competes in a tightly contested segment with Maruti Suzuki Dzire leading the way in sales ahead of Hyundai Xcent.
The Xcent’s position will likely be threatened when the new generation Honda Amaze dives into play in the coming months. With Tata preparing to unleash models from Impact Design 2.0, the Tiago and Tigor set the tone and laid down the basement with consistent sales numbers. Both are powered by same engines and use similar transmissions.
The 1.2-litre Revotron petrol is good enough to produce 84 bhp and 114 Nm of peak torque and 1,047 cc diesel makes 69 bhp and 140 Nm. The transmission options include a standard five-speed manual unit and an optional AMT. The sporty JTP versions of both the models were showcased at the recently concluded 2018 Auto Expo and they will be followed by respective electric variants in the near future.
