    The XE variant lacks many important basic features such as remote central locking, day/night IRVM, audio system w/ steering-mounted controls, rear power windows, electrically adjustable ORVMs, wheel covers and body-coloured door handles and ORVMs. As a result, we won’t recommend buying the base XE variant.

    As per our internal data, the XM variant’s incremental cost of Rs 60,000 for the mentioned features is on the higher side. If you choose this variant, then you’ll have to compromise on both value and basic features. Hence, we can’t recommend this variant and will suggest going for some higher variant instead. 

    What Are The Features of Tata Tigor XZ Variant? 

    Tigor XZ variant is Rs 41,000 costlier than the XM variant. The XZ variant is not available with the AMT option.

    For this added cost, the XZ variant offers a handful of extra features. Some of its notable additional features include -- fog lamps, steering-mounted audio controls, remote central locking, electrically adjustable ORVMs, cooled glovebox, rear armrest, chrome door handles and body-coloured ORVMs. 

    The following table lists the all the additional features of the 2021 Tata Tigor XZ variant over the XM:

    According to our internal data, the XZ variant’s added features do not justify the incremental cost over the XE and XM variants. However, as far as the basic set of modern-day features is concerned, this variant is adequately equipped. Thus, we suggest that even if you wish to buy an affordable basic variant of the Tigor, then you should at least go for the XZ variant. 

    What Are The Features of Tata Tigor XZ+ Variant? 

    The top Tigor XZ Plus variant is Rs 61,000 more expensive than the XZ variant. The XZ+ variant comes with the AMT option as well, which will cost you an additional premium of Rs 52,000. It is worth noting that the XZ+ AMT’s price difference with the XM AMT is around Rs 1 lakh.

    The top Tata Tigor XZ+ variant’s additional features are worth much more than the incremental value of Rs 60,000. According to our internal data, this is the best variant of the Tigor in terms of features and value. If you are considering the XZ variant, then we strongly suggest that you stretch your budget a bit to settle for the XZ+ variant instead, as it is a sensible choice in terms of both value and features. 

    In the case of AMT, we strongly recommend that you choose the XZ+ and not the XM variant.

    2021 Tata Tigor Variants - Which One To Buy?

    Now let us sum up all the variant-wise recommendations of the 2021 Tata Tigor to ease your buying decision. 

    In case of the manual transmission Tigor variants, the XZ covers most of the basic features. However, you will have to compromise on value if you choose this variant.

    Also Read - 2020 Maruti Suzuki Swift vs Tata Tigor - Price, Specs, Features, Mileage Comparison 

    Below the XZ variant, the XM and the base XE variants lack a number of basic features. Hence, we recommend at least the Tigor XZ variant even for the budget buyers. 

    The Tigor XZ+ top variant is the most value-for-money variant. If you wish to avail feel-good features in the Tigor range and can stretch your budget till the XZ+ variant, then we definitely recommend buying it. 

    In case of the AMT option, the Tigor range has only 2 variants available, namely -- XM and XZ+. As choosing the XM variant would mean compromising on both value and some basic features, our only recommendation is certainly the XZ+ variant.
