Updated on 4 October 2018, 16:44 hrs - Merely hours after releasing a video clip that teases the chrome-finished tail light of the new Tata Tigor special edition, the company has come up with another teaser video. The short multimedia clip seems to take a dig at the recently launched 2018 Ford Aspire. It also reveals the new model's chrome beltline and a new blue exterior colour option.
Updated on 4 October 2018, 10:53 hrs - Tata Motors has come up with another teaser of the Tata Tigor special edition. The latest video clip details the new model's chrome-finished tail light. As per the company, the new model will have a "white crystal effect on the crystal inspired LED tail lamps."
3 October 2018 - On 28 September 2018, we reported that the Tata Motors will launch a special edition Tata Tigor on October 10. In sync with our previous report, the company has teased the new Tata Tigor special edition in a short video clip on its Facebook page.
To be launched during this year's festive season, the new Tata Tigor special edition will likely carry several distinctive styling elements and come with some additional features. The official teaser video reveals a new Buzz Blue exterior paint scheme and a chrome finish for the headlamps. As per the company, "the all-new Tata Tigor will be here to make a dazzling entry."
The introduction of the new limited-run model will follow the launch of the Tata Nexon Kraz. Going by the limited-edition Tigor Buzz, the next Tata Tigor special edition should offer several distinct styling features and additional equipment. From the looks of it, the new model would be based on a high-end trim level of the company's most affordable sedan.
Mechanically, the new Tata Tigor special edition shouldn't see any change. 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 of the petrol variant, but it's unlikely to be offered on the new limited-run model.
With a monthly sales average of 2391 units*, the Tata Tiago-based sub-4 metre sedan hasn't been as successful as its hatchback sibling (7,975 units*). The new Tata Tigor special edition should help the company tap the surge in new car sales during this year's festive period.
*March 2018 - August 2018
