Enter the tigor
Just last month I said goodbye to the trusted Tiago after using it for a year. Tata has now replaced it with its new compact sedan- Tigor. The Tigor from the front head-on does look identical to the Tiago, but the rest of the design feels youthful and fresh. In profile, the Tigor looks absolutely stunning - especially how the roof smoothly integrates into the tail section.
The Tigor comes with a long list of features like projector headlamps. Inadequate illumination was one of the major problems of the Tiago. Thanks to the reversing camera, parking is a lot more simpler, especially in a city like Mumbai.
Speaking about the reversing camera, it has been giving us a bit of trouble every now and then. Two weeks after getting the long term, the camera stopped displaying feed on the touchscreen infotainment unit. It would just show the sign ‘please reverse carefully’ along with the reversing grid. Weirdly, without any check-ups the camera started functioning two days later.
Within a month’s time, I have already clocked more than 2,000 kilometres. During this time it had given us an overall efficiency of around 15.2km/l. The Tata Tigor is here with us to stay for a few months and I am hoping to take it for a long drive one of these weekends. Stay tuned for more reports in the months to come.
