Tigor has the colour shades changed to a much darker tone in the car interior. Also the Tigor comes with a hi-tech touchscreen infortainment system along with an automatic climate control system which redefines the driving experience. Tiago came with Harman infotainment system but Tigor comes with a navigation system along with it and also is equipped with an integrated reverse camera with it.
