Tata Motors, the popular Indian passenger car manufacturer, has silently come up with the AMT variant of the petrol-spec Tigor compact sedan. Until now, the Tigor was available with a five-speed manual transmission only. Prices of the Tata Tigor AMT variants start at Rs 5.75 Lakh and go all the way to Rs 6.22 lakh. This is basically an increase of Rs 40,000 over the corresponding trims. Other than the introduction of AMT, there is no change in the specifications. The Tigor, which is basically a compact sedan derivative of the Tiago, has been on sale with a 1.2-litre Revotron engine that outputs a maximum power of 85 bhp and a peak torque of 114 Nm.

The new Tata Tigor AMT is available in two trims – XTA and XZA. While the XTA has an ex-showroom price of Rs 5.75 lakh and the XZA costs Rs 6.22 lakh, respectively. The new AMT variants are likely to give a boost to the appeal of this entry-level sedan. So far, the Tigor has impressed many with its stylish notchback body-type, fairly spacious interior, and a frugal and sufficiently refined petrol engine. The added convenience of the AMT should further help this car find more takers.
According to Mr. Vivek Srivatsa – Head – Marketing, PVBU, Tata Motors – “Given the current traffic scenario and growing driver fatigue levels, an AMT is the perfect solution to bringing back the joy of driving in a city, without compromising on fuel efficiency. As per our turnaround strategy, we are working with a renewed focus and energy to improve our market share and bring products that align with customers’ aspirational and practical requirements. Keeping with the trend of this growing segment, we introduced the AMT variants of the hatchback TIAGO, which has so far received a tremendous response. Now, with the TIGOR AMT, we continue to reach out to our customers with stylish and feature loaded products that offer best-in-class technology and design engineering.”

Tata Tigor AMT Mileage
There is no change in the mileage. Unlike torque converter automatics, AMTs aren’t fuel-sapping units. Hence, one can easily extract as much as 20 kmpl on the highways. Even in urban conditions, this car will offer roughly 16 KMPL. It is noteworthy that in a mileage conscious market like ours, having a high fuel efficiency helps the sales of any car model. Hence, the new Tigor AMT automatic models, which come with fuel efficient engine along with a long list of features, should enjoy a wide appeal.

Being merely a new variant, there is absolutely no change in the design or styling of the car. Hence, even the dimensions remain the same. The Tigor is a sub-4-metre compact sedan that boasts of a notchback design. This makes the car avoid suffering from the oddball proportions that many other sub-4-metre sedans are marred with.
