I can confirm this. I have a bs6 xz+ model bought in July 2020 and it has automatic climate control. However, the economy button in the pic is missing from my center console.

Since you have posted here, how about you update a bit about your experience with the Tiago.

Actually I feel quite amused after witnessing all the flap about a simple locking mechanism.
Even the 2020 Rolls Royce Ghost has a pull - type locking mechanism!
Have the discreet "up-pah class" Rolls owners been crying themselves hoarse or beating their collective heads on the sheepskin carpets?

Most engineering decisions are a trade - off between functionality, performance and cost and all OEM's will sign off a part for production if it meets these three primary requirements.

And, frankly speaking apart from aesthetics, (which is subjective), what is the superiority in performance between an inside door opening lever integrated lock knob and a separate "push-pull" lock knob?
Heck, how many times, recently, have you actually physically locked a car? It auto locks itself when you start to drive and unlocks when you switch off anyways, and then you use the plipper on the remote to lock it down. It would be interesting to do a straw poll on how many Tiago sales have been lost or gained because of the infamous lock knob

I'm sure Tata has changed the locking mechanism because of an internal cost savings programme, as they have further commonised parts between their various models.
That it has achieved the dual purpose of improving the aesthetics is a bonus and now the anti - "pull-type-lock-knob" brigade - can finally sleep in peace.

Hallelujah!

I know couple of my friends who feels uncomfortable with these lock knobs in their Tiago. In this era of aesthetics and blinks, this old fashioned knobs were sour at lest in mind of certain owners. It is good that Tata decided to change this finally(after selling more than 2.5L Tiagos).

Had a tyre upgrade query for my Tiago XZA+ 2019 (with projector headlamps ). It is far from reaching a need to upgrade the tyres, but for future sake, I was wondering what size of tyre will be an acceptable upgrade from 175/60 R15.


I was considering 185/60 R15, because the JTP variant already did come with it, so may not be incompatible. Primarily looking from a handling perspective. I understand that a wider tyre will cause a drop in the fuel economy.


I was wondering what kind of issues this can cause.

  • Should I expect noticeable enough handling improvements?
  • Would this require returning of the suspension and wheel alignment configurations?
  • Because the rim size remains the same, I assume I could keep the same alloys?
  • The spare wheel is 175/65 R14, so will it continue to be usable for short distances at least?

Since I own a mid 2018 XZA(the then top end), let me pitch in. You can definitely go ahead with 185/60 R15 if this was on JTP as well. However, with the weight of Tiago and the power it generates, stock size is pretty good. You can change to a better brand with same spec to get a silent/smooth ride.

Regarding your queries -
: Tiago is a good handler in its stock form. Not much gain here but you will definitely get more ground clearance.
:I don't think any change in suspension required. Check with TASS regarding wheel alignment if they do something different for JTP.
: Definitely.
: Definitely.

175/60R15 is the stock tire size for Ignis as well - check the details on the correct upsize for this tire size here > (Maruti Ignis : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread)

The correct upsize would be 195/60R15

Completed 4 happy years with this car (XZ Petrol). 4th year service costed me 9.9k including replacement of the broken central AC Vent (due to use of mobile holder) and rear boot hydraulics which gave up. Still feels butter smooth and comfy on the road as day 1.

Will need to replace the battery soon is what they tell me.

I am at 27k kilometers, Mostly used for commute, Semi annual drives to Kerala from Bangalore.

This is incorrect. The aspect ratio/profile being the same (60) for a width increase of 20mm, the difference in circumference is 4% which is not recommended. The upsize if you want a 195 would be 195/55R15 which is a difference of 0.76%.

I would suggest a better tyre of the same OE size for improvement in handling. Continentals or Michelins.

My bad - you are correct - the Ignis sizing is 175/65R15....so the link I shared had the correct details about Ignis but I somehow mapped it wrongly as same for Tiago.
