Tata Tiago AMT Launch Soon!


Tata‘s new Tiago is off to a good start in the market. Now, the manufacturer is looking to further that run with the addition of an automatic transmission to the petrol variants. Tiago is all set to get an automatic gearbox in the form of a 5-speed AMT. The Tiago getting an AMT eventually was no secret, but we weren’t sure when. Test mules were spotted recently indicating Tata could be prepping for a Diwali 2016 launch of the Tata Tiago AMT Automatic. Since the Tiago automatic will be available only in mid-level and top trims, prices should start at about Rs. 4.6 lakhs (ex-showroom). Read on for more details.

Tata Tiago launch took place a few months back in April 2016. We expect Tata Motors to introduce the automatic variants around the 2016 festive season. Which means Tata Tiago Automatic launch will take place in September – October 2016. We’re also expecting Tata to launch the Tiago based Kite 5 compact sedan in India by the end of 2016.

*estimated ex-showroom, Delhi price

Tata Tiago Automatic is likely to be available in three trims – XMA, XTA and XZA. Prices could start at around INR 4.60 lakhs going all the way up to INR 5.50 lakhs. In comparison, Wagon R AMT costs almost INR 5 lakhs and Celerio AMT starts at INR 4.64 lakhs. However, Tata could consider launching the entry-level variants of the Tiago with the AMT gearbox, which could bring starting price down to below the 4 lakh Rupee mark.

Tata Tiago AMT Automatic Mileage

One of the benefits of an AMT ‘box is the fact that mileage doesn’t take much of a hit. Expect the Tiago AMT’s fuel efficiency to be similar to the manual model.

The Tiago AMT will be a direct rival to the AMT versions of the Wagon R and the Celerio. Compared to these two, the Tiago is a lot more modern. It also has a more matured ride quality and a fresher design. Hence, the Tiago AMT could enjoy an upper hand over its direct rivals.

Tata Tiago AMT Automatic Engine and Transmission

Initially, only petrol variants of the Tiago will get the automatic transmission, which is a 5-speed AMT. The 1.2-litre petrol engine it will come with boasts a max power output of 85 PS and a peak torque of 114 Nm. Like the 5-speed AMT in the Nano, the Tiago’s unit will also feature crawl function and ‘Sport’ mode. AMT gearboxes don’t usually affect fuel economy as severely as other conventional automatics. We expect the upcoming Tata Tiago AMT to return a mileage of around 22 km/l (ARAI figure). This 5-speed AMT unit could find it way to diesel variants of the Tiago a few months after the launch of the petrol version. Tata has been reporting very strong demand for the petrol Tiago, which is why Tiago Diesel automatic is unlikely to go on sale any time soon.
