The Tata Tiago, despite being launched back in 2016, lacked an AMT version until March this year. However, the AMT version was elusive to the top end XZA variant only, which was priced at Rs. 5.39 lakhs. However, Tata Motors has now introduced an AMT gearbox in the XTA as well. With this, the range of automatic transmission in the Tiago has been more affordable, starting at just Rs. 4.79 lakhs.

The Tata Tiago is one of the most affordable hatchbacks in India that is presently on sale and gets some rich features. It comes with two drive modes - City and Sports. The hatchback also gets an interesting feature that is not very common in budget-friendly passenger cars, that is, a built-in creep feature. With the help of this, the car will automatically start moving at a crawling pace, without the driver launching the accelerator, once the brake pedal is released. This will come in handy while the car is stuck in traffic in an inclining of a bridge.

The Tata Tiago XTA is powered by a 1.2-litre Revotron engine which can make a maximum power of 84 bhp at 6,000 revs per minute and a peak torque 114 Nm at 3,500 revs per minute. The EasyShift AMT, as Tata calls it, is sourced from Magneti Marelli and is the same unit that is featured in the Zest compact sedan and the Nano. The gearshift comes with four positions, which are Neutral, Reverse, Manual and Automatic.

The AMT variant section of hatchbacks in India is a very crowded segment with the presence of many quality cars like the Maruti Suzuki Ignis (Rs. 5.72 lakhs) and the Grand i10 (Rs. 5.97 lakhs). Though Tata Tiago is cheaper than them, it faces some more fierce competition from the Renault Kwid AMT and the Maruti Suzuki Celerio which are cheaper.
