Tata Motors launched the updated version of the Tigor in October last year. The range-topping XZ+ trim got the 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The Tiago followed the suit in December. While the infotainment system was already Android Auto compatible, they are now compatible with Apple CarPlay.
This feature is available only in the XZ+ variants though. If you are one of the chaps with this trim, head over to the nearest Tata Motors showroom for a free upgrade.
The Tigor continues to draw the power from the 1.2-Liter petrol and 1-liter diesel engine. While a 5-speed manual transmission is a standard across the range, you also now get an AMT gearbox as an option. The petrol motor is good for 84 bhp and 114 Nm of torque while the diesel motor generates 68 bhp and a healthy 140 Nm of torque.
A little bit of History
The Tiago, the first of the car to sport the IMPACT design philosophy. It gets power from a 1.2 L Revotron petrol engine and a 1.05 L Revotorq diesel engine. Following the success of the Tiago, Tata launched more variants of the car that included 2 AMT variants, the XZA, and the XTA. Next was the Tiago NRG, the urban tough roader as Tata calls it. The hottest cars of the lot are, of course, the Tiago JTP and Tigor TJP. These cars were developed by a JT Special Vehicles (JTSV), a joint venture between Jayem Automotive and Tata Motors. JTSV plonked the 1.2L, 3 Cylinder petrol engine from the Nexon. The engine develops a massive 112 BHP and propels the car to 100 km/h in less than 10 seconds.
Tata Motors initially named the Tiago, The Zica, but had to take back the name due to a virus outbreak. Messi was signed the brand ambassador for the Tiago. By all means, the Tiago was the well written first page in Tata Motors’ new chapter.
