Tata Tigor facelift to be launched on 10 October

The first major update for the compact sedan since its introduction.

–    Will get newly designed headlamps with projectors, restyled tail lamps and a new blue paint scheme.

–    Might get the new seven-inch display for the updated touchscreen system.

Tata will launch the updated Tigor in India on 10 October. The Indian carmaker has already released a couple of teasers for the updated version of the compact sedan. This is the first major update for the Tigor since its introduction and will be limited to cosmetic changes to boost the demands during the upcoming festive season.

We know so far that the update will head new projector headlamps to the Tigor along with a new blue body paint. The teaser also reveals an LED tail lamp for the compact sedan which is a step up from the current model’s bulb and reflector unit. It also looks like crystal design elements have been added to the tail lamp.

Apart from that, we believe that the refreshed Tigor will see an introduction of a bigger display for the touchscreen system. This might be the seven-inch unit which can be the same user interface as the well-received system in the Nexon. Under the skin, there will be no mechanical changes to the updated Tigor and it will continue with the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.0-litre diesel powertrain. Both get five-speed manual gearbox with the former also getting the option of a five-speed AMT. However, the long-awaited Tigor JTP was also expected to arrive with the update. No official details have been revealed by Tata, but it won’t be a surprise if we see a more performance oriented JTP joining the updated Tigor during the launch.
