TIGOR is the nameplate for KITE5 Sedan.

Based on the Tiago platform the car will share mechanicals like engines, transmission and suspension. Powering the car will be the Revotron 1.2L Petrol and Revotorq 1.05L Diesel engines with multi-drive modes – Eco and City.
Feature wise the car will get segment first 420 litres of bootspace, coupe like silhouette and integrated roof spoiler housing the high mounted stop lamp LEDs.
