Tata Motors launched the XTA variant of Tiago in India with prices starting at Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Tata Tiago XTA is equipped with an AMT unit and costs Rs 50,000 more than the XT’s manual setup. With the addition of the new variant, the Tiago is now available in four automatic transmission variants: XTA, XZA, XZA +, and XZA + Double Tone.
Tata Tiago XTA Engine details
The Tiago XTA is offered with a single 1.2-liter, three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 86hp of peak power plus 113 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual gearbox as well as an optional 5-speed transmission. This is the same engine that is also offered with the Tigor as well as the Altroz.

Features available with the hatchback include 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, rear defroster with windshield wiper, 8-horn Harman premium audio system, and automatic climate control, all four electric windows, a digital speedometer, and a cooled glove compartment. In addition, the AMT model comes with a ‘Sport mode’.
On the safety front, the Tata Tiago has two front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, a front seat belt reminder, a high-speed alert system, an angle stabilization control, and a rear parking camera.
The hatchback also received a 4-star safety rating in the Global NCAP crash tests, making it one of the safest cars in India in the affordable price range. As of now, Tata Tiago is facing models like Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, and Ford Figo in the Indian market.
Commenting on the introduction of this new variant, Vivek Srivatsa, Head Marketing, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit (PVBU), Tata Motors said, “Fulfilling our brand promise of staying New Forever, we are constantly listening and gathering feedback from the market. The Tiago has received a tremendous market response from across regions. Furthermore, the automatic transmission (AT) segment in India is booming and the same has been proven in the sales of Tiago as well. Acknowledging the increasing preference for ATs we are excited to introduce the XTA version to the range and are confident that this new variant will not only give us a competitive edge in the mid-hatch segment but will also provide customers with accessible options to choose from at every price point.”
