Tata Motors has launched the automatic version of the Tiago hatchback in India for a price of Rs. 5.73 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
Tata has decided to make the Tiago more attractive to customers in India by offering an automatic transmission variant with the hatchback.
The Tata Tiago now gets an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) gearbox mated to the 1.2-litre, three cylinder Revotron petrol engine. The transmission is the Magnetti Marelli system, lifted from the Zest sub-4 metre sedan and features four gear positions – Automatic, Neutral, Reverse and Manual. Just like the Zest, the Tiago AMT also gets two drive modes– Sports & City. The gearbox also gets a creeping function that allows the car to crawl forward as you release the brake pedal without having to use the accelerator pedal. This allows easy drivability in stop and go traffic and parking situations.
Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors, said, “Since its launch in 2016, the TIAGO - our first product to be launched under the IMPACT design language; stood out as an attractive, innovative and feature loaded car. Besides, due to the continued good response to the TIAGO, we are witnessing a month-on-month growth in the immensely competitive hatchback segment. The TIAGO has been instrumental in the growth of Tata Motors’ brand across the PV market.“
“In line with our commitment of launching products that cater to the need of the ever-evolving customer, we are happy to launch the TIAGO AMT today. We are confident that it will further expand the market for us.” he added.
The Tiago automatic will be available in the XZA variant and is available across all Tata dealerships across the country as of today.
