Tata Motors has expanded the Automated Manual Transmission range of its Tiago hatchback.

Catering to the surging demands of automatic hatchbacks in the country, Tata Motors has launched a new AMT variant of its Tiago hatchback - called the XTA AMT, which slots below the previously available top-end XZA AMT.

The EasyShift AMT - as Tata likes to call it - is a 5-speed unit which is sourced Magneti Marelli. The gearbox also offers users a choice of two driving modes - Sports and City - a feature that remains unique to Tata cars in the budget price segment.  There’s also a creep feature, which allows the car to crawl as soon as the brake pedal  is being released - which can be helpful on inclines and traffic.

Despite not being the highest level trim, the Tiago XTA comes rather well equipped - with features like rear parking sensors and Tata’s ‘ConnectNext’ infotainment system. Otherwise, powering the Tiago is the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder ‘Revotron’ mill, that produces 85bhp of power and 114Nm of torque. The car is also offered with a diesel engine, however - the diesel is not offered with an AMT option.

The biggest forte of the Tata Tiago remains its value-for-money proposition - it remains around Rs. 30,000 cheaper (model to model) from its chief rival - the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, which was the first mass market hatchback to come equipped with an AMT gearbox.
