by admin | October 19, 2020


Old Style Pop-up Door Lock Design Removed in Tata Tigao

The Tata Tiago is one among the best small hatchbacks in India and it is also the best seller for Tata motors. It offers segment best safety standards, comfortable cabin and robust mechanicals. The XT variant onwards gets a 2DIN infotainment system with the XZ variant onwards receiving a touchscreen unit with steering mounted audio controls till date.

However now, the XT variant too gets steering mounted audio controls with Bluetooth telephony, paired to the touch based monochrome head unit. This improves driver focus towards the road, without the need to take their hands off the steering wheel.

The XT Variant gets a 2DIN audio system with 4 Harman speakers which sound impressive. The head unit offers reverse sensor monitor with NaviMaps & Juke car app compatibility as well. The steering mounted audio controls are now a part of standard equipment on this Variant with a price increase of just Rs.1000. The Tiago XT now is priced at Rs.5.34L ex showroom.

Apart from the additional feature, the new range of Tata Tiagos manufactured since the month of August will receive a updated front door pad design. The armrest and grab handles receive a new and more premium design with changes made to the locking mechanism as well.

Gone are the Maruti 800 style pop up door locks and that have made way to a conventional and more aesthetically pleasing design. The door lock lever is now integrated with the door handle, which itself is now sleeker and robust. The top spec XZ+ Variant is expected to receive a metal finish on the door handle with piano Black finish on the armrest.

There is no price increase for this design change and the rest of the car and features remain the same.

    is flanked by LED DRLs which also include the indicators. The actual headlamps are located lower down in the bumper and the top spec variant get Pure Vision LED headlamps. While all variants get 16” wheels as standard, the higher variants get alloy wheels. The rear features C shaped LED tail lamps and a very sculpted tailgate. The higher variants also get silver finished rear skid plate. The sides feature black decals that look like body claddings and even the higher variants don't get Chrome door handles.

        The interior of the Kiger gets a traditional, yet stylish layout. The higher Variants get an 8” touchscreen floating at the centre on top of the dash with a high centre console that also includes a large storage compartment under the armrest which can be closed by a Tambour-door sliding lid, as seen on the Tata Nexon. The top Variants get a 7” TFT instrument cluster along with two gloveboxes. The Climate control console, window and mirror controls, starter button, gear lever and the steering wheel are shared with the Nissan Magnite. The door pads are vastly different compared to the Magnite while the glovebox design is identical to the one seen on the Triber.

    The Kiger also claims to have segment-besting 405L boot space as standard.

    • RXE

    • RXL

    • RXT

    • RXZ

    Powertrains:

           The Kiger will be offered with two petrol engine options. Both 1.0L engines are the same as seen on the Nissan Magnite. The naturally aspirated engine will produce 72PS of Max Power and 96NM of Max torque through a 5 speed Manual gearbox. Unlike the Magnite, the Kiger also offered a 5 speed AMT gearbox with this engine as an option from the RXL Variant onwards.

    The turbocharged engine produces 100PS of Max Power and 160NM of Max torque with the manual transmission while the CVT Variants produce 152NM of Max torque. The base RXE Variant is not ava with the turbocharged engine option and only the RXT and RXZ turbo Variants get the option of a CVT.

    Launch & price:

            The Renault Kiger is expected to give tough competition to all other compact SUVs while also lasting the success streak of Renault from the launch of the Triber. The Kiger is priced neck-to-neck with the Nissan Magnite, starting from Rs.5.45L (ex-showroom) for the RXE and going up to Rs.9.55L (ex-showroom) for the top spec RXZ Turbo CVT Variant. This pricing makes the RXE Renault Kiger the most affordable compact SUV in the Indian Market today.
