Tata Motors will be introducing a host of new models, which could be introduced by the end of this year or starting early next year. The new models that are expected to arrive include full-size SUVs, and a micro-SUV. However, the company also plans to offer a turbo-petrol variant on its existing model range including the Tigor fastback.
According to the latest report & spy images from Rushlane, the company could be offering a new turbo-petrol engine option on the Tata Tigor model. The fastback was spied testing in Mumbai wearing a complete camouflage.
As a result, the upcoming 2021 Tigor compact-sedan could feature several exterior design changes to tell apart from the standard model variants. This could be in the form of colour co-ordinated exterior and interior trims to enhance the looks of the fastback designed car.
This will not be the first time that Tata Motors offering a turbo-petrol variant of the Tigor model. The company was offering a powerful version of the compact-sedan called the Tigor JTP which was powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine.
The 1.2-litre unit was only BS4-compliant and produced 114bhp and 150Nm peak torque. The engine came mated to a five-speed manual transmission with revised gear ratios. The company discontinued both the Tiago & the Tigor JTP models in India due to low sales volume and demand for performance machines.
However, the upcoming Tigor variant is unlikely to feature a 1.2-litre engine as the Tata Motors do not have an intention to launch the JTP models again in the market. Instead, It could be a new smaller-capacity power unit which could be developed in-house from the brand.
The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engines are becoming extremely popular. It offers a perfect balance between performance and fuel efficiency while offering a good amount of refinement as well. Owing to the growing demand, Tata Motors could be working on its version of the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit.
After the BS6 update, the Tigor is sold with a single petrol engine option. The 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally aspirated engine produces 85bhp and 113Nm of peak torque. The engine is offered with either a five-speed manual or a five-speed AMT unit.
The Tata Tigor is based on the brand's entry-level model Tiago hatchback. The Tigor retails between Rs 5.39 lakh and 7.49 lakh, ex-showroom (India). The company is also currently offering attractive discounts and easy finance schemes.
In related news, Tata Motors is offering a host of year-end discounts and benefits on select models sold in the brand's line-up including the Tigor. The compact sedan is being offered with savings of up to Rs 30,000, which includes a cash discount of Rs 15,000 — here are more details.
Thoughts About The New Tata Tigor Turbo-Petrol Variant Spied Testing In Mumbai
In recent times, the turbo-petrol engine has become the popular choice for car buyers in the Indian market. As a result, we are noticing manufacturers launching their model with an optional turbo-petrol unit catering to the growing demand. However, Tata Motors already offered the turbo-petrol engine on their JTP models, which failed to register good sales numbers.
