The recall is for all Tata Tigor models built between 6th March and 1st December 2017.
Tata brought in the Tigor in March last year, and since then a reasonable number of the car has been sold. Even to this day, the Tigor registers a monthly sale of more than 2,000 units. For all those who already own this compact sedan, Tata Motors has issued a voluntary recall. All Tigor models built between 6th March and 1st December 2017 have been recalled due to a potential emissions issue. Tata Motors further clarified that all models bearing chassis numbers from MAT629401GKP52721 to MAT629401HKN89616 will be part of the recall. Dealerships will get in touch with owners to address the issue in the days to come. Tata Motors claims that the emission issue should not be a hazard to the safety of the passengers inside – in fact, it is amply safe even before the recall.
When Tata brought in the Tigor last year, it became the most affordable compact sedan in the country. Slotted below the slow-selling Zest, the Tigor has a 1.05-litre three-cylinder diesel motor that pumps out 70bhp and a 1.2-litre, three-pot mill that pumps out 85bhp. Both engines come paired with a 5-speed manual, while the petrol also comes with an AMT option.
The Tata Tigor costs ₹4.84 lakh for the base trim and goes right up to ₹7.19 lakh for the top-spec trim. Both prices ex-showroom Delhi.
