Tata Tigor: Which variant is worth to buying?

The Tata Tigor is a relatively newer subcompact sedan from Tata Motors. Based on the Tiago hatchback, the Tigor is the company’s answer to their critics and how Tata cars were perceived since the introduction of the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire.

Right from the time Tata Tigor images have been revealed, there was a widespread attraction towards the way the subcompact sedan was designed. Launched in 2017, the car has already managed to get a lot of positive reviews and is slowly posing to be a threat to the likes of the Ford Aspire, Hyundai Xcent, etc.

However, there is just one major problem that you might face after you have already decided on buying a Tata Tigor. The car is extremely affordable and you might end up facing a dilemma of which trim would be the best for you.

So this is where you will get to know about which trim is the perfect one to go with based on the add-ons provided.

The XZ (O) trim (Rs. 6.2 lakhs)

The top end XZ (O) trim of the Tata Tigor should always be the first on the probability list. This trim is loaded with a lot of goodies like two safety airbags, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce distribution, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors with camera, etc. Moreover, the touchscreen infotainment system is just a delight to use.

However, the VXI trim of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, which is priced at Rs. 6.4 lakhs, gets the same features minus the rear parking sensors and camera. Moreover, it even misses out on a touchscreen infotainment system like the Tigor has.

The XE trim (Rs. 4.76 lakhs)

Yes, you heard it right. The base variant of the Tata Tigor is a highly recommended car in the segment and there are pretty good reasons to justify them too. Firstly, the base variant of the Tigor is extremely affordable and is the cheapest car in the segment. Secondly, despite the fact that the base variant of the Tigor does not have much of a safety features covered, the price tag suggests that it is the best bet considering the engine and the ride quality. It still pumps out a peak power of 84 bhp along with a maximum torque of 114 Nm. It is at least better than paying up a lakh extra to buy a Maruti or a Hyundai.


The Tata Tigor is a very significant product from the company’s perspective and hence the company has taken every possible measure to get it to be a major hit. Being slotted below the Zest subcompact sedan, the Tigor has no such direct opponents, and this is where the company has managed to play the trump.

So, if you are buying a Tata Tigor, it’s either the top end trim or the base variant that turns out to the best buy. The goodness packed in the top range model under Rs. 6.5 lakhs is commendable and way ahead of other well-known brands. Similarly, the base variant is the best choice since it is extremely affordable, more than many hatchbacks too.
