Rumour: Tata to launch Tiago AMT in XTA variant

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) for sharing this information with other enthusiasts via this page!

Tata had launched the Tiago AMT in March 2017 only in the top-end XZ variant (XZA) in its petrol guise (not diesel). Now, the Indian manufacturer might offer AMT in the lower XT trim as well. The Tiago AMT in XT variant (XTA) is expected to be launched in the second or third week of September this year. The company plans to produce 300 units of the Tiago XTA for the month of August and the production will be increased to 500 units in the coming months. We've been told that the XZA has very low volumes, and Tata hopes that the XTA will improve the automatic's sales. 

The Tiago XT misses out on quite a bit of features over the XZ variant. These include steering mounted audio & phone controls, ABS with EBD & corner stability control, front fog lamps, rear wiper and defogger, ORVMs with LED turn signals and alloy wheels. Currently, the XZA variant is offered at a premium of Rs. 34,000 over the XZ Manual transmission model. The same premium is expected on the Tiago XTA variant as well. We had recently reported that Tata might also introduce a Limited Edition Tiago

Currently, the Tiago XZA is offered only with a Petrol engine mated to a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The 1,199cc, 3-cylinder Revotron engine makes 83 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and has a peak torque of 114 Nm @ 3,500 rpm.
