Hi All, Creating this new thread of Tata Tigor XZ variant Ownership review, details will be provided as and when updates and observations comes up during the ownership. I had NANO CX 2012 model, clocked 65000. NANO is a good car and never gave any trouble in last six years. I have driven Nano from Visakhapatnam to Mumbai and back, other destinations ware Puri, Bhubneshwar, Raipur, Araku, Guntur, Vijaywada, Hyderabad, Palasa, Srikakulam, so overall it has served its purpose without any fuss or breakdown. The search for replacement of Nano began in Feb 2017 when this GST bill was about to pass which speculated that the price might go up or come down. Looking at the positive side of the price coming down , I checked out Ertiga, Breeza, Baleno, Aspire. Price somewhere was a big issue in deciding the car. My requirement was simple, it should be road worthy as I prefer travelling to long distances by road only. So this is how it all started, I was desperately looking for an upgrade, there were quite a few in that segment like Aspire Dzire, Baleno. I do a lot of road trips, i.e. second home. So after a lot of test drive and various ownership reviews on net and TAI, I checked out TATA Tigor seriously, after a lot of dilemma decided to make Tigor our next family member. I am a petrol head and love driving petrol car only period, so no point looking for Diesel. My daily run is 32 Kms plus few extra kms during weekends and using diesel car for the same does not make any sense. The features in Tigor at such price was one more deciding factor. Come July when I went for my NANO servicing, a blue color beautiful Sedan was displayed in service center. I checked it looked around and it got my attention. It was Tigor, After going through a lot of reading on internet and finding the facts, discussion with wife we zeroed on making this car as our new family member. So one 08 Sep , booked my Tigor by paying 10000 INR and to my surprise the dealer said the delivery can be done the following week. excitement was at its high and on 9th I was able to visit the stockyard for PDI. One look at the Espresso brown and I knew it was going to be my new family member. On road price as per dealer is 713031 INR, I got 60000 INR for NANO in exchange and was able to successfully negotiate 5 K from the insurance, 2000 as corporate discount, also negotiated for seat cover and dealer agreed for a discount of 50 % bringing down the price to 3500 INR. so On road it is going to cost me 643031 INR. Mr Prabhakar from Siva Shankar Motors Visakahapatnam also promised few additional goodies like mud flaps, extra pair of Mats and perfume for the car, Also they are giving an offer of 1 Gm gold coin or cash discount which gave me another 3 K minus from the total amount. Wait begun for 21 Sep when the car will be delivered. After one day of Ownership. 1) Smooth delivery process. 2) The sound of engine when it was started by me is mesmerizing. 3) already completed 101 Kms. 4) Showing 10.2 KMPL, hope this changes soon. 5) Tank filled till brim with 35.2 Liter of petrol. 6) Found a bit lag in power in ECO mode. 7)Don't now but it seems I am feeling little pain in my right arm, while driving, so had to switch to left arm diving. 8) Steering is light and very responsive. 9) Reverse parking with sensors seemed to be a challenge, hope I will be used to in few days. 10) Second gear with 2000 RPM cleanly shows loss in power. 11) Following the gear shifting as it indicates in MID. 12) ORVM having amazing view, top notch. IRVM at night is a blessing. 13) A real head turner. 14) Height adjustment of the seat is good. 15) Felt 5 gears not adequate for this car, felt the lack of 6th gear on highway. 16) A sure shot head turner, I thoroughly enjoyed the way people looked at my car. Observations after a weeks ownership. 1) Driving comfort at par with any other car from this segment. 2)Maximum speed touched was 140 Km, did not feel any vibration, no issues faced apart from a bit of delay in car coming to halt post braking. 3) Gear knob felt a bit shaky after 100 KMph. 4) Engine noise can be heard in the cabin. 5) AC is too good, bone chilling. 5) Fuel efficient showing as 13.2 as I write this. 6) Shockers are the best things in the car, not at all bumpy under any circumstances, takes on pot holes without a fuss. 7) Did a bit of off roading and found the car too be ok for off roading as well. 8) Felt a bit of power lag in 4th gear. 9) Rear seat riding feels good, very comfortable ride. 10) Boot space is a boon takes on your weekend grocery shopping with ease. 2 months over and ODO completed 4300 kms which included one road trip of 2212 kms. The car is getting better by each kilometer and the best part is post completing 3 K kms, the vehicle is giving an average of 21 on highways and 18 in city. No problem whatsoever so far. Good to see TATA has actually looked into the quality bit. The car is real value for money keeping in mind other brands with the same features are at least 75 K to 1 Lakhs more than Tigor. Car is very stable, low vibration at high speeds of 120-140 kmph. though the cabin noise due to raod and tyre is a bit on the higher side but one can live with it due to the Harman music System. It is not suggested to go for such speeds keeping in mind the safety angle and unexpected Indian road. Completed 5200 Kms , engine sound is reducing and I am able to see the smoothness coming in with increase in mileage by 1.5 to 2 Kms (again depending on driving manners). Drawback of car not being pick up friendly is very much prominent otherwise, its gem of a car. few points post completion of 5k KMS. (a) Hassle free ride absolutely without any problem. (b) Burning smell issues observed earlier is talk of past. (c) Tyres filled with nitrogen 30days back is still intact with no pressure drop (Checked today 17/12/17). (d) Under body cover of some sort in the engine bay could have been of some help as every time I open the bonnet I am able to see soil accumulation on various parts. (e) One can easily get 20 Kmpl in cities if the urge of moving fast is controlled. (f) No regrets of going for 2nd time TATA as it provides whatever I need with family of 4 with two growing up children. (g) completed 2212 kms road trip without any kind of stress or fatigue. 2nd Free service done after 7380 Kms on 9/1/17. Appointment was booked online through TMSC app, the SC followed up quite diligently with me to update on the schedule. Checks were carried out as per the Manual. 1) General check up for oil levels and engine oil check was done. 2) Air and AC filter were cleaned. 3) Wheel balancing and alignment was done. They charged for Balancing( for lead attachments). 50 INR. 4) Wiper water pump was changed as it was not giving desired result, spray of water instead it was just dropping water on the lower part of the wind shield. Replaced without any charges as under warranty and gold AMC. Attached video is of the location of the pump. 5) Laptop was connected for cleaning of all the sensory data which included cleaning of engine management system post which the spanner symbol indicating service due on MID was gone. The next symbol will come post 15 K kms as a reminder for 3rd service. 6) Washing and cleaning was done. 7) Only thing that didn't went down well with me was it took five hours for doing this regular job. I went for buying center Arm rest for my car and works fine. Actual price as it is TATA genuine accessories is 5293 INR, I was able to bargain and bring down the price to 3998 INR . It took 10 mins for the SC guys to fix. No vibrations and quite nifty, only loss is the center water bottle space is now covered due mounting of the arm rest. initially one might not find it comfortable for engaging the hand break, however one can live with it.
