Tata Motors has launched the Tigor AMT in the Indian auto market. Two variants available – XTA and XZA priced at Rs. 5.75 lakhs and Rs. 6.22 lakhs respectively (ex-showroom, Delhi). This is an increase of about Rs 40,000 compared to their respective manual transmission versions.
The Tigor AMT is only offered with a petrol engine. The 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder unit is the same engine that powers the Tiago AMT. It produces 84 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm.
The Tigor AMT in XZA trim gets alloy wheels, projector head lamps with follow me home function and an end-to-end LED high-mounted stop lamp. The interiors are finished in a dual-tone theme and it comes with a Harman infotainment system with 4 speakers and 2 tweeters. The App Suite is standard and consists of turn-by-turn navigation; Juke-Car, Tata smart manual and service connect features. Features like ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, front fog lamps are standard on both the variants.
The XTA trim, the Tigor AMT misses out on projector lights and instead gets conventional headlights and steel wheels in place of alloys. Driver and passenger side airbags are only available on the XZA trim.
The Tigor AMT rivals the likes of the Maruti Dzire petrol AMT (starting at Rs 6.73 lakh), Ford Aspire automatic (Rs 8.34 lakh) and Honda Amaze CVT (starting at Rs 7.37 lakh) in the very competitive compact sedan segment (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi)
