Tata Tigor has witnessed its sales drop for the three consecutive months while the Tiago sedan version continues to see the sales rocketing in March 2019.

Basically, the Tata Tigor and Tata Tigor are almost the same models. The only thing to differentiate the Tigor and Tiago is that one is a hatch and one is a sedan. They share a lot of things in common, notably same features, same design, same engines and same architectures. However, sales are not the same.

The Tata Tigor is the sedan version of best-selling Tata Tiago sibling.

At the price starting from Rs 5.42 Lakh (ex-showroom), people see the Tigor sedan as the most affordable car ever in the Indian market. However, the car is now facing the biggest decline in the YoY sales figures until the end of March 2019. Latest statistics show that only 1,236 units of Tigor were sold in India last month, which has led to a massive drop of 40 per cent when compared to 2,076 units sold in the same period last year

It even indicates a decrease of 23 units against 1,259 units sold by the company in February 2019. This is in spite of the huge discounts Tata is currently offering on the Tigor. However, it looks like heavy discounts and offers are not enough to feed the insatiable tastes of buyers in recent days when there are multiple of “tasty” cars like Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Xcent and Honda Amaze, etc. come in handy in their wish list. Let’s have a look at the current king of sedan segment- Maruti Dzire which has just reported 19,935 sales units during March 2019 or, at the same time, the Honda Amaze happily celebrated around 7,000 takers in the same month along with 239% YoY sales growth in FY 2019.
