Tata Motors has finally launched an affordable Tiago with an AMT gearbox in India. The all-new XTA variant is currently priced at Rs.5.99 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Also, with this launch, Tiago AMT is now affordable by Rs.47,000 when compared to the XZA variant. Earlier, Tata also introduced Tiago Limited Edition with a starting price tag of Rs.5.79 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
It was based upon the XT variant with additional features such as 14-inch alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment system and keyless entry among others. However, the limited edition Tiago was only available with a 5-speed manual gearbox and it missed out on an AMT gearbox for sure.
