Tata Motors has released a new teaser video of the new Tigor ahead of the official launch tomorrow. The short multimedia clip seems to take a dig at the Maruti Dzire.

The latest video reveals the punchline of the new Tigor's marketing campaign: “Renounce the world of Desire”. The video uses a background and font style similar to those Maruti Suzuki used for the Dzire with the tagline “A whole new world of Dzire”.

The new Tata Tigor will feature minor cosmetic changes. On the outside, the sub-4 metre sedan will gain chrome finish headlamps, partly clear-lens tail lamps, shark fin antenna, more chrome garnish and a new navy blue colour called ‘Egyptian Blue’. The highlight of the interior will be a 7.0-inch touchscreen system that replaces the current 5.0-inch unit.  It should offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.

A new ‘XZ+’ grade will become the range-topping trim option. Only this grade will come with the new infotainment system. Mechanically, the Tata Tigor will remain unchanged. The sub-4-metre sedan has been on sale with two engines - 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel. The former produces a maximum power of 85 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 114 Nm at 3,500 rpm. The latter outputs a maximum power of 70 PS at 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 140 Nm between 1,800-3,000 rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard on both the variants. An optional 5-speed AMT is available on select trims.

The Tata Tigor in the new XZ+ grade is likely to cost around INR 30,000 more than in the XZ grade (petrol: INR 6,18,126*/diesel: INR 7,06,028*).
