Tata Tigor vs Maruti Baleno- Comparison. Price,Features, Mileage, Specifications and more

The Tata Tigor is the 3rd compact sedan from Tata Motors after the Indigo eCS and the Zest. It is based on the Tiago hatchback which can be called as a well-sorted car. Due to the well-sculpted notchback form, the Tigor has a very catchy and attractive design. It also has a number of great features and even offers a touchscreen infotainment system. Though the Tigor will be a direct rival to other compact sedans on sale in India, it would definitely give competition to premium hatchbacks like the Maruti Baleno. Therefore, we are comparing these two cars in our Tata Tigor vs Maruti Baleno comparison post here-

Tata Tigor vs Maruti Baleno Comparison- Price

Tata TigorMaruti Baleno
PriceRs 4.70-7.09 LakhRs 5.28-8.44 Lakh

Despite being a sub compact sedan, the Tata Tigor costs much lesser than the Baleno. However, there is a price overlap between Tigor’s top-end models and the Baleno’s entry and mid level trims. For instance, the Tigor XZ petrol and Baleno Delta petrol costs almost the same. It will be really interesting to see if the fully loaded Tigor manages to take away some buyers from the hot-selling Maruti hatchback.

When it comes to specififcations, the petrol models of the Tigor and the Baleno are equally matched. The major difference is that the Baleno offers an option of a CVT while the Tigor does not. That said, the Tigor is expected to get an AMT in coming months. The Baleno Diesel, however, is clearly a lot more capable than the Tigor Diesel. It pumps out a lot more power and torque and also is very frugal. The Baleno is also offered with a 1.0-litre Boosterjet Turbo Petrol  engine, but we haven’t put it in the comparison here as the Tigor doesn’t have a performance-oriented model on offer.

Tata Tigor vs Maruti Baleno Comparison- Verdict

As we had mentioned in the beginning of the post, there’s no direct competition between these two Tigor and the Baleno. The Baleno is a premium hatchback while the Tigor is a compact sedan based on a budget hatchback. Adding to this, the Baleno offers higher performance, especially when it comes to the diesel models of these two. Thats not the end. The Baleno also gives a much more premium feel. Our verdict is that , those looking for a larger boot should go for the Tigor over the base Baleno. And those looking for a more powerful diesel engine, bigger cabin and a more premium experience should opt for the Baleno.

    Which Car should I purchase Maruti Baleno or Tata Tigor ?
    please specify me for future aspect.

    • Abhishek Barmase

      Thanks for going through the post Mr. Satyendra. We would recommend you to go for the Baleno if the boot is not an essential requirement. The Baleno would give you a much rich and premium feel, along with the reliable after sales support of Maruti. The Baleno is a great car and is very successful in the Indian market. Whereas the Tigor still needs to establish itself. Hope this clarifies your doubt.

    Considering the budget, practicality, my requirement of family car and my sedate driving habit, I am thinking of buying tigor xt diesel.
    Please advise me whether the diesel is good for regular usage of 100 km. and occasional weekend trips on highway in terms of mileage, comfort.
