Look at the top 20 car sales and there is only one compact sedan which shows the buyer preference showing a shift towards compact SUVs and premium hatchbacks. In-fact the Honda City sells more than the Amaze. A reason is that compact sedans more often than not end up in no mans land due to the fact that they have to have compromises in design due to being under 4m and also due to price they are not as well equipped as other similarly priced premium hatchbacks.
The Tigor promises to change that. The Tigor showcases everything that is going right for Tata Motors. A superb design is what gives the Tigor a big advantage but along with that Tata Motors have aggressively pushed with features which will make it stand out. The notchback style is unique and the coupe like stance is what will pull buyers to this car but also just like the Tiago, the good fit and finish will appeal to. The Tigor caries forward the successful recipe of the Tiago and just like the Tiago, expect the Tigor to be the most affordable compact sedan which means this could be the biggest rival to the Dzire especially now since the current Dzire is on its way out. So yes the compact sedan space will be revived by the Tigor and do not be surprised if it outsells its hatchback sibling.
