Tata Motors has launched the Easy-Shift AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) version of its tantalizing Tiago at Rs 5.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and Rs 5.73 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). The automatic option will be available only on the top-spec XZA variant of the petrol hatch. The Tata Tiago AMT goes on sale from today at the company’s more than 597 outlets across the country.
Currently, the petrol-powered Tiago XZ trim costs Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and for buying an AMT version you need to spend Rs 40k more.
The Tiago AMT comes with two drive modes – Sports and City. While the Sports mode ups the performance of the Tiago, the City one helps you sneak through the city traffic with ease. Additionally, for bumper to bumper traffic, it gets a ‘creep’ function, which assists the car to crawl as soon as you lift your foot from the brake pedal, without pressing the accelerator. In an inclined position, this feature prevents the car from rolling back too.
The looks remain more or less same as the stock Tiago. That said, it continues to sport a flashy style, spacious interiors, top notch quality material, driving modes, and decently powered petrol motor. For the uninitiated, the engine is a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Revotron mill designed indigenously by Tata Motors. The only difference will be an ‘AMT’ badging at the rear.
