    Indian auto giant Tata Motors is preparing to introduce the XM variants on the Tigor compact sedan. According to the speculations, the new variant is likely to be launched during the festive season in the country. We can expect the automaker to make official announcement regarding the launch sometime soon regarding the launch. Currently, the Tata Tigor comes in XE, XT, XZ and XZ (O) variants since its launch in June 2017.

    The upcoming Tata Tigor XM will be placed between the XE and XT variants and will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine option.  Tata Tigor comes powered by the same engine that empowers the Tata Tiago, the 1.05-litre, 3-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 69 bhp of power and 140 Nm of torque and the 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol motor tuned to produce 83.8 bhp of power and 114 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Although, the petrol powered Tata Tiago offers automatic transmission option in its XTA and XZA variants, the AMT option with Tata Tigor is still missing from the Tigor product lineup.

    To be placed between the base XE and mid-level XT variant, Tata Tigor is surely going to carry forward all the features from the XE variant but will miss out some of the features from the XT variant. Let’s have a look at the expected features list. It includes Manual central locking with key, All four power windows, Speed sensitive automatic door locking, Follow me home headlamps, LED fuel gauge, Full fabric seat upholstery, Interior lamps with theatre dimming and Full wheel covers.

    In terms of safety features, we can expect the Tigor XM variant to offer ABS as the manufacturer currently offers ABS with XT, XZ and XZ (O) variants only. Apart from ABS, dual airbags are something currently offered on the top-end XZ and XZ (O) variants only. The Tigor XM variant will be available in six colour options Copper Dazzle, Espresso Brown , Pearlescent White , Platinum Silver , Striker Blue and Berry Red. Apartf rom this, the compact sedan comes with a standard warranty of 2 years or 75,000km, whichever is earlier, with an option to have an extended warranty at nominal charges.

    Talking about the pricing, while the difference between the petrol-powered XE (Rs 4.59 lakh) and XT (Rs 5.28 lakh) is Rs 69,000 and the difference between the diesel-powered XE (Rs 5.41 lakh) and XT (Rs 6.31 lakh) is Rs 90,000. Hence, we can expect Tata Tigor XM petrol to be priced around Rs 5 lakh, ex-showroom while the XM diesel is expected to cost somewhere around Rs 6 lakh.

    However, Tata Tigor didn’t succeed in making a hot buzz in the market in the country as it was expected by the manufacturer in its category but the car managed to place itself as the third highest selling car in its segment. Looking at the sales and demand in the market, Tata Motors is preparing to introduce the new XM variant to fill the gap between the entry level XE and mid-level XT variants in the Tigor variant line up. Also, we can expect the automaker to introduce the AMT version along with the XM variant of Tata Tigor as the manufacturer already offers AMT option with petrol powered smaller sibling of Tigor, the Tiago.
