Tata Tiago AMT to be launched in India by mid-2017
Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Currently available only with 5-speed manual transmission.
The Tata Tiago, irrespective of the engine option selected, is available only with a 5-speed manual transmission. An AMT option was reported to come this festive season, but according to a fresh report from carandbike, the Tata Tiago AMT will go on sale in 2017.
Close competitor Maruti Celerio is already available with an automated manual transmission, and starting in early or mid-2017, the Tata Tiago will be available with this option. As of now, the company’s focus is on the much bigger and premium product – the Tata Hexa.
The Tata Tiago AMT may get its turn only after the Tata Kite5, to be launched after the Tata Hexa. With the Renault Kwid AMT now soft-launched, Tata Motors would be keen to get its competitor out within the shortest time.
The Tata Tiago is available with two engines: the 1.2-litre Revotron three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 85 PS and 114 Nm of torque and the 1.05-litre Revotorq three-cylinder diesel engine that delivers 70 PS and 140 Nm of torque. Tata Motors offer the automated manual transmission with a diesel engine (in the Zest), but in the Tiago, only the petrol engine will be available, it is reported.
The Tata Tiago is available in five trim levels: XB, XE, XM, XT and XZ, with prices starting at INR 3,20,487 (ex-showroom New Delhi) for the petrol model and at INR 3,94,987 (ex-showroom New Delhi) for the diesel.
