A land that was once the abode of great Sultans and mighty Mughals, a land that claims Yamuna River as its lifeline, the capital city Delhi was where Tata chose to launch the performance based variant, Tigor JTP. The historical place where Qutab Minar, Lal Qila and Jantar Mantar are flooded with tourists every year seemed to have displayed a new face with the launch event of this sports variant.
Tata Tigor will be the ideal car for those who wish to take a break from the monotonous routine and go on weekend holidays with their family. Putting an end to the entire wait, this urban car was launched spraying a whiff of fresh air in the Indian Automobile Market enticing all car enthusiasts.
Let us take a deep look at this sedan from Tata and know more in detail what it has to offer.
At the very first sight, this sedan with its striking exteriors attracts the onlookers with an urge to possess. The logo looks very simple and elegant in a black and red glossy finish. 15 inch diamond shaped alloy wheels provides the vehicle with a superior stance compared to other variants. Orange LED daytime running lamps underlining the headlamp cluster that lie close to the large honeycomb grille upfront not only ensure safe night travel but also seeks attention of the passerby.
Tigor JTP gets black air dam and vent on the bonnet to ensure optimum outflow of hot air from inside the engine. Tigor, as we know earlier is beautifully crafted with tail lamps too encased in a neat flowing design. Outside Rear View Mirrors display red and black contrast casings revealing the JTP identity on Tigor. The presence of dual exhaust pipes and a blackened roof accentuates the looks of sportiness in this vehicle.
The all black cabin with red detailing here and there, once again enhances the sportiness of Tigor JTP. From air con vents to leather seats to the floor carpets, most elements receive a splash of vibrancy with hues of red. Even the needle on the speedometer turns red when it hits the higher range. The robust steering wheel wrapped in leather gives a feel of superior authority while driving.
Dual front air bags, ABS, automatic climate control, 5 inch touch screen infotainment system with Harman Kardon speakers are other features inside the cabin worth mentioning. Aluminum pedals and new door panels look appealing while there is ample leg room too inside the vehicle, thanks to the increased wheelbase by 50mm. Tata Tigor JTP boasts of improved boot space as well.
Tata Tigor JTP comes with a 1.2L three cylinder Revotron turbocharged petrol engine in place of a naturally aspirated one. Even though it is the same engine that does duty on the Nexon, it has been fine tuned to produce more power on the performance variant with a five speed gearbox. When we say more power, it means a solid increase close to 30bhp making it 114bhp at 5000rpm and 150Nm as against the previous 114Nm. What seems more interesting is the fact that JTP assures better fuel efficiency compared to others with the turbo engine boost up only above 2000rpm thereby saving on fuel in daily city traffic.
Tata claims of Tigor JTP sprint from 0-100kmph in less than 10 seconds. Revised suspension has been provided on this performance variant while ride height appears decreased by 4mm for better maneuverability on the Indian roads. 185 section tyres developed by Apollo and MRF capture all four 15-inch alloy wheels on the new Tigor JTP providing the sedan with superior grip and control while driving.
