Recently, Tata Motors has increased the price of the mid-spec Tata Tiago XT. Along with the price update, Tata also adds some new features to the Tiago XT. Previously, the Tata Tiago XT received the addition of steering wheel-mounted controls.
After receiving the price hike, the Tata Tiago XT has received some new features including updated door locks and front door pads. The new and simple lever-like door lock replaces the old pull-up/push down type which you will find only on the old-gen and economical car models like Maruti 800 or Maruti Omni. The new door lock is located around the same area as the door lever, which makes it easier to access. Such a small change will reduce the effort to manually operate the doors.
Apart from the new door locks, the Tata Tiago XT also receives new pads for the front doors, which adds some premium appeal to the interior design. The material update for the door pads will give the armrests and the door handles a better feel. However, only the front doors will receive this update. On the other hand, Tata Tiago XT has dropped the parcel tray. The rest of the feature list remains the same. All the minor updates come at a marginal price hike of Rs 1,000 – 1,500.
As for now, Tata is offering the Tiago XT with some highlight features like good-quality fabric upholstery and Harman double-DIN stereo system. It also sports a similar sporty flat-bottom steering used on the Altroz and Nexon. The XT variant also features the steering wheel-mounted controls, which allows the driver to control the audio system or incoming calls easily. In terms of safety, the Tata Tiago XT is equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and control stability control (CSC), and rear parking sensor.
Under the hood, the Tata Tiago XT is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that is good for a maximum power of 83 bhp and a top torque of 113 Nm. It is offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Tata Tiago also comes with another transmission option which is the 5-speed AMT. This transmission option is not available on the XT variant but on the top-spec trims. The above updates will come at a price of Rs 1,000 – 1,500, which increases the price of the Tata Tiago XT to Rs 5.34 lakh. Tata Tiago is now competing against the likes of Maruti Celerio, Maruti Wagon R and Hyundai Santro.
