The 2020 Tata Tigor facelift has been spotted testing for the first time. The sedan was spied at Maharashtra, India with heavy camouflage. The new Tigor Sedan is expected to make its global debut at the 2020 Auto Expo along with the updated Tata Tiago premium hatchback. The major change on the updated Tigor will be under the bonnet. Tata Motors is currently working on making its entire range BS VI compliant. The BS VI norms will be stricter than the BS IV norms and will come into force on April 1, 2020.
The Tata Tigor is the compact sedan version of the Tata Tiago hatchback and the facelifted Tigor is likely to borrow design clues from the updated hatchback, which was spotted testing some days back. The 2020 Tata Tigor facelift will be built based on the brand’s Impact Design 2.0 styling language which share its underpinnings with the Altroz premium hatchback, which made its premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in the month of March, 2019. The implementation of the Tata’s Impact Design 2.0 styling language hints that the Tigor facelift will feature revised headlamps and rear lamps, a redesigned grille and restyled bumper.
2020 Tata Tigor Facelift Spied Testing Ahead Of launch
The Tigor sedan facelift will receive exterior updates only at the front while the rear of the sedan remains unchaged except the tail lamps and revised bumper. On the interior, the facelifted Tigor Sedan is likely to get modified upholstery with new materials. Besides that the cabin is expected to come equipped with telematics and more new features in order to ensure drive and passenger comfort. The cabin is also likely to come with a new color scheme.
The powertrain of the sedan will receive the most remarkable change since the automaker is preparing the car to meet with the BS VI norms. The 1.05 litre diesel motor is likely to be discontinued. The 2020 Tata Tigor facelift will be powered by the 1.2 litre Revotrol petrol engine. Tata Motors may substitute the diesel unit with a petrol hybrid or pure electric powertrain. The current BS IV compliant 1.2 litre petrol engine churns out a power of 84 bhp at 6,000 rpm and produces a peak torque of 114 Nm at 3,500 rpm. The motor is paired with a five – speed manual or AMT gearbox. However, the power output figure will vary when the motor becomes BS VI compliant.
