The bookings for the new Tigor are open across the dealerships of the company against a down-payment of Rs 5,000. The Tigor, the 'styleback' as company calls it, is the third launch of the company this year after the Hexa and Tiago AMT.

Tata Tigor Price
Tata Tigor Price is probably a bit of a puzzle that awaits unravelling. Perhaps that is also the reason why the rumour mills have been doing the rounds for the past couple of weeks. What we can decode is that Tata is pegging it at round Rs 4.5 lakh. And if indeed Tata makes it happen, it would not be far-fetched to say that the company, a late entrant to this segment, has ticked the right box.
