Since the launch of the Tata Tiago, the small hatch has been garnering amazing response for the Indian manufacturer. Tata has been working on the automatic variant of the Tiago, which was supposed to be launched last year. The car has been spotted testing on Indian roads last month and now the interior of the car has been spied ahead of its official launch.
It is speculated that the AMT variant of the Tiago has already commenced production and the car is ready to be launched in the coming months. According to the spy shots, the Tiago AMT will have a gear lever similar to the one found in the Zest AMT. Initially, only the petrol engine will come with the automatic option, with diesel variant to follow. The five-speed AMT transmission is sourced from Magneti Marelli. The same company supplies the automatic transmission to Maruti Suzuki for the Celerio AMT.
When launched in India, the Tiago will have the Celerio automatic as a rival. Pricing of the automatic variant is expected to be a bit higher than the manual. The Tiago AMT will help Tata Motors further strengthen its position in the hatchback segmen
