Tata Tiago XZ+ launched: Why should you buy

Tata Tiago XZ+ launched: Why should you buy

Tata Motors has rejigged the Tiago portfolio with the addition of a new top-spec variant. Called the XZ+, the new top-of-the-line variant comes with added features and cosmetic updates. After the launch of the Hyundai Santro in the highly competitive entry-level B-segment, Tata updated the Tiago to keep it relevant in the market. So if you are looking to buy a new compact hatchback in the B-segment, here is why you should consider the Tiago and its new top-spec variant.

What’s good about it?

The XZ variant of the Tiago was already a decently specced car. It came with 14-inch alloy wheels, turn-indicators on ORVM, fog lamps, steering mounted controls, driver height adjust, and one-touch power window. Now with the XZ+, Tata has added additional features like projector headlamps, chrome inserts, electric ORVMs, and automatic air-conditioning. The Tiago, now, also gets two new body colours – Canyon Orange and Ocean Blue – along with a dual-tone paint scheme, a glossy black finish on the roof and a petite rear spoiler. 

Most importantly, sitting in the centre console now is a seven-inch ConnectNext touchscreen infotainment unit with Harman music system and Android Auto. The Tiago earlier missed out on the touchscreen system, which, Hyundai later offered with the Santro Asta trim. (You can read about the comparison between the two over here.) 

What’s not so good?

Launched in 2016, the Tiago is due for an update. It has been a runaway success for the Indian carmaker since its introduction. But now since its competition has inched a step ahead with the new Santro and upcoming new-gen Wagon R, Tata needs to update the Tiago with a mid-life facelift in a years’ time. 

There is no automatic transmission even as an option for the top-spec XZ+ trim. But that will be added at a later date. However, this would see a considerable bump in prices which means that the top-spec XZ+ diesel AMT will carry around a Rs 7 lakh price tag, which is a lot of money for an entry-level B-hatchback. 

Specification:

Engine:    

1047cc diesel – 84bhp at 6,000rpm and 114Nm at 3,500rpm

1199cc petrol – 69bhp at 4,000rpm and 140Nm at 1,800rpm

Mileage – 23.84-27.28kmpl

Transmission – Five-speed manual and AMT

Did you know?

The Tiago was previously named the Zica, short for 'zippy car', but it was changed because it sounded like the name of the Zika virus.
