Now on sale nationwide.
After months of testing, Tata Motors has finally launched the Tata Tiago AMT. The Tiago AMT is priced at INR 5.39 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and INR 5.73 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai), and is now on sale in 597 dealerships nationwide.
The Tata Tiago AMT is powered by the 1.2-litre Revotron three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 85 PS at 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. The Easy Shift automated manual transmission has four gear positions – automatic, neutral, reverse and manual. The driver can choose from two drive modes – Sports and City.
The AMT variant has an inbuilt ‘creep’ feature with which the car starts gradually accelerating automatically as soon as the pressure is released from the brake pedal. This function offers ease of driving in stop-and-go traffic and prevents the car from rolling back when accelerating from an inclined position.
The Tata Tiago AMT is available solely in a newly added ‘XZA’ grade, which expands the car’s range to six grades. The company has not revealed equipment details or updated the website and brochure yet, but from the naming, it seems like the XZA grade is positioned above the previously range-topping XZ grade, implying that the Tiago AMT should pack all the advanced features offered in the car. These include alloy wheels, two-tone interior, ConnectNext infotainment system with navigation, audio system with four speakers and four tweeters, reverse parking sensors, ABS with EBD and CSC and dual-front airbags.
