The top-spec XZ+ trim of the Tata Tigor and Tata Tiago are now available with the Apple CarPlay smartphone integration feature. Android Auto was already available in both cars.
In October last year, the company released an updated version of its Tiago-based sub-4-metre sedan. The refreshed version, which brought in a handful of visual updates and new features, marked the debut of a new range-topping XZ+ trim that offered a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto connectivity. In December, the Tiago received the XZ+ grade with the same new infotainment system. The latest infotainment system has now been upgraded to feature Apple CarPlay.
Mechanically, both the models remain completely unchanged. They are available with two engine options - 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol unit that produces 84 bhp and 114 Nm of torque, and 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel unit that ddevelops 69 bhp and 140 Nm of torque. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Additionally, the petrol version is available with a 5-speed AMT on select trims.
Other than a Harman-sourced 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the XZ+ trim even offers features like faux leather upholstery, driver's side seat-height adjustment, power-folding ORVM with integrated turn indicators and projector headlamps.
With an average monthly sale of 7,378 units*, the Tiago is the most popular car from Tata Motors. In December 2018, the company reported the sale of more than 1.7 lakh units of the Tiago since its launch in March 2016. The Tata Tigor, on the other hand, hasn't been as successful as its donor hatchback sibling. It has a monthly sales average of 1,949 units*, which makes it far less popular than its hatchback sibling.
