The car is based on the very successful Tiago, but at 2450mm, its wheelbase is 50mm longer than the hatchback's. The 419-litre boot is obviously bigger than the Tiago's, but the inclusion of hydraulic struts frees up precious space from the boot that's otherwise taken up by the intrusive hinges. The cargo-carrying capacity is bigger than all sub-4m sedans, and it even beats a few bigger cars like the Hyundai Creta. Another neat touch is the boot lid cladding, which, even sedans much pricier than the Tigor don't get.

In terms of features, the Tigor distinguishes itself from the Tiago with:

  • Smoked double-barrel headlamps

  • Projector low beams

  • Touchscreen infotainment system

  • Automatic climate control

  • Armrest for the back benchers

The higher end petrol variant also gets bigger 15-inch machined alloys while the diesel retains the 14-inch units that we first saw on the Tiago.

Features borrowed from the Tiago include:

  • 8-speaker Harman-sourced audio system

  • Steering-mounted controls

  • Multi-info display

  • Tilt adjustment for steering

  • Electric/remote boot lid opening

  • All power windows

  • Power-adjustable and foldable mirrors

  • Tablet storage in glove box

  • Follow me headlamps

  • Parking sensors and camera

  • ABS

  • Dual airbags

  • Seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters

Space is not an issue with the car, and it offers several nifty storage areas, ample knee, head and elbow room in both rows. Ride quality is another aspect where the Tigor excels, particularly with the diesel variants' heavier powertrain and taller tyre sidewalls. Wind noise, road noise and the engine hum, however, do find their way into the cabin due to poor insulation.

Powertrains are carried over from the Tiago, and it comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.05-litre diesel engine. The petrol variant makes 85PS of power at 6000rpm and 114Nm of torque at 3500rpm. The diesel engine delivers 70PS of power at 4000rpm and 140Nm of torque from 1800 to 3000rpm. Both the engines are paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 5-speed AMT automatic with the petrol engine isn't available at launch and will join later. The AMT joined the Tiago brigade early in March 2017.

The gearing is on the taller side and designed to deliver excellent fuel efficiency. The petrol engine is good for 20.3kmpl while the diesel returns 24.7kmpl. Taller ratios affect the machines' city drivability as the engines fail to deliver an instant response. At part throttle, the petrol variant behaves well, but the Tigor's engine-gearbox combo really shines on the highway and provides relaxed cruising, for the engine as well as the occupants.

The aggressive pricing and improved fit and finish will allow the Tigor to compete with other sub-4m sedans, such as the Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, Hyundai Xcent, Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire and Volkswagen Ameo.
