Both the petrol and diesel engines offer good city performance

Performance – Powering the Tigor are the same petrol and diesel engine options offered with the Tiago. There are no changes in the power and torque figures as well. Considering the Tigor is heavier by about 50 kgs over the Tiago, we expected slight increase in the performance figures. However, both the engines are tuned well to offer the right balance of performance and fuel efficiency for the target audience. They come with City and Eco driving modes, where ECO is tuned towards offering better efficiency.

The engines offer good NVH levels and return high fuel efficiency

The Tigor comes with both petrol and diesel engines offering the right balance of performance and efficiency

The 1.2-litre Revotron petrol is a 3-cylinder unit that feels quite peppy to drive in city conditions offering quick response down the revv band and linear acceleration post the mid-range. However, you need to give it the beans out on the highway to feel the progress at high speeds. The 1.05-litre three pot oil burner on the other hand offers good grunt in the mid-range with minimal lag. The NVH for both the engines is quite impressive. The 5-speed gearbox feels easy to use having positive feedback along with a light clutch. You can expect a real world mileage of 14-16 km/l for the petrol and 18-21 km/l for the diesel engine.
