Tata Tiago XTA: What do you get in this mid-spec variant?
At Rs 5.99 lakh, the Tiago XTA costs Rs 50,000 more than the regular Tiago XT, though both variants have an identical equipment list. As with the XT, the XTA gets you kit such as dual airbags, ABS, day-night rear-view mirror, rear parking sensors with a display, Harman-sourced audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, steering-mounted controls, manual AC, LED digital instrument readout, front and rear power windows and remote locking, among others.
Compared to the higher-spec XZA, the XTA misses out on a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a rear wiper and defogger, fog lamps, power folding wing mirrors and a height adjustable driver seat.
The only real difference between the XT and the XTA is the gearbox – the 86hp, 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is paired to a 5-speed AMT unit in the XTA.
