The hindu group Tata Motors is going ahead with its plans to improve the portfolio of products that has the signature. Leaving to one side its partnership with the Volkswagen Group they are continuing with their releases and the next (in addition to its signature sporting Chaff) will be the saloon small Tigor. This model is the sedan version of the Tata Tiago and is ready to hit the indian market along these days.
The firm already released, before the Geneva motor show opened its doors, a few sketches of how it would be the design of this pretty model. In the appointment, the swiss introduced it officially and now that is already known by the whole world is willing to start your marketing in their native country. As we already know (and but remember) the Tigor has this peculiar shape because it can’t exceed four metres in length and for this reason the designers of the firm have to play with their volumes.
however, and despite the fact that not much like the design of that first sketch, we say that this is not the worst car we have ever seen. The part of the design that is more complicated to treat is the back, and in this case the responsible of the design of the brand have known how to play with the shapes to disguise its format saloon and that looks like a hatchback to something more grown up. For his part, the design of the front is very similar to the one that has the Tata Kite 5, because it only has received a few tweaks to update it with respect to this.
the interior design of The model improves a lot with respect to the models that launched the firm in previous years. Evidently, the qualities of the materials will not be first, but Tata is learning a lot of their brands, Jaguar and Land Rover and now cares a lot more shapes and materials. The equipment that will mount the Tigor will include among other elements, front airbags, ABS with EBD, automatic climate control or infotainment system with touch screen. Obviously it will not be a very heavy, since it must keep its price at bay, but will not have large gaps.
For us to get an idea of what is special about this car for Tata we have to talk about its proportions. Is manufactured on the modern platform XO and measured 3,992 metres of length, 1,677 meters high and 1,537 metres wide. With these numbers in hand achieves a luggage compartment of 420 liters capacity. To move this set has two mechanical tricilíndricas Revotron in diesel with 1 liter and 68 bhp petrol and 1.2 liters and 83 hp. Both are attached to a gearbox of manual cutting and five relationships, though later will hit a cut auto CVT.
For now there are no reported prices for India and neither if what we see in other markets. We are aware of.
