Less than a week after the launch of the Ford Aspire, Tata Motors has given its sub-4 metre sedan, the Tigor, minor cosmetic tweaks and feature additions to keep up with the competition. The exterior styling tweaks have been kept to a minimum, which makes sense since the ‘Styleback’ was launched just last year.

The 2018 Tata Tigor gets mildly tweaked headlamps, clear lens tail lamps, a shark fin antenna and new 15-inch alloy wheels. Tata has also added a new blue paint option as well called ‘Egyptian Blue’, replacing the ‘Copper Dazzle’ colour from the original launch model.

On the inside, the updated Tigor features a new 7-inch capacitive touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto instead of the older 5-inch unit with Tata’s own app suite. Tata is also offering dual front airbags along with seatbelts with pretensioners and load limiters as standard across the range, while features like ABS with EBD and corner stability control and rear parking sensors are not offered on the first two trim levels. The reverse parking camera is limited to the top-spec XZ+ variant only.

Other new features on the top variant are the digital control for the fully automatic climate control and the titanium colour faux leather seats. Features like front fog lamps, follow-me-home headlamps, steering-mounted phone and audio controls are offered only from the XZ variant onwards while the XT variant has now been discontinued. The base-level XE variant of the Tata Tigor is still sparsely equipped.

The Tigor doesn’t get any mechanical changes and continues to powered by the same 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine and 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel unit. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, while the petrol variant also gets the option of a 5-speed AMT (automated manual transmission).

The 2018 Tata Tigor renews its rivalry with the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Ford 2018 Aspire Hyundai Xcent and the Volkswagen Ameo, among others. Check out the prices below:
