Tata Motors launches Tiago AMT in Bangladesh
Tata Motors has launched the automated manual transmission (AMT) version of the Tiago in Bangladesh. It is offered in XTA trim and is priced at 14.95 lakh Takka (ex-showroom, Dhaka).
The Tiago AMT available in Bangladesh is identical to the XTA variant of the car sold in India. The car comes with a gloss black honeycomb grille flanked by wraparound headlamps, roof spoiler with integrated high and mounted stop lamp. Inside, the car gets a three-spoke steering wheel, twin-pod instrument cluster with 2.5-inch MID and ConnectNext infotainment system by Harman with Juke-Car App and turn-by-turn navigation.
The Tiago AMT is powered by a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 84 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm of peak torque @ 3,500 rpm. It has two driving modes - Sports and City. The engine is paired with a 5-speed automated manual transmission which has a 'creep' function. There is no manual transmission or diesel variant available like the Indian Tiago.
In Bangladesh, the Tiago AMT is available in 6 exterior colour options - Striker Blue, Berry Red, Sunburst Orange, Espresso Brown, Pearlescent White and Platinum Silver. Tata offers a 3 years / 1,00,000 km warranty on the Tiago AMT in addition to 6 free services.

Re: Tata Motors launches Tiago AMT in Bangladesh
I travel to Bangladesh frequently for work, and there is no place for Manual cars in that country. Its one of the biggest market for used/re-furbished Toyotas and Hondas from Japan and Korea, all automatic, with added CNG kit locally. Selling a manual geared car is useless in that market.
Also, import duties on cars are as high as 400%, so not many can afford a brand new car as duties on used cars is much less, and these cars are in great condition with superb fit and finish. I have seen a few tata showrooms and a few Nano and Indica in Dhaka. Mahindra also has a decent presence, have seen a few Xylos and KUVs.
Interestingly, they use all Mahindra tractors for Airport ground operations at Dhaka and Chittagong, the 2 airports that i have visited.
