Tata Motors has introduced a new top-spec trim to its popular Tiago hatchback's line-up. Christened the Tiago XZ+, the new variant gets a long list of additional equipment.
First up, the Tiago XZ+ gets two new exterior paint shades – Canyon Orange and Ocean Blue. The variant also comes with a dual-tone exterior option that includes a gloss-black roof and rear spoiler. The variant comes with the 15-inch alloy wheels also seen on the Tigor petrol variant. It gets chrome bits on the tailgate and body-side mouldings as standard. The car also gets projector headlamps from the Tigor.
On the inside, the Tiago XZ+ gets a new 7.0-inch touchscreen system by Harman, replete with Android Auto – albeit misses out on Apple CarPlay. Also, automatic climate control is standard on this variant, along with power-folding wing mirrors.
Apart from addition of the aforementioned equipment, the Tiago XZ+ comes with the same running gear as before, which includes a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.0-litre diesel mill. Gearbox choices include a 5-speed manual and AMT; although it remains to be seen whether any of this equipment will be made available on the AMT-equipped variant.
The Tiago XZ+ is priced from Rs 5.57 lakh for the petrol variant in a single-tone paint shade. The XZ+ petrol model with dual-tone exteriors costs Rs 5.64 lakh. The Tiago XZ+ diesel trims costs Rs 6.31 lakh and Rs 6.38 lakh for the single-tone and dual-tone variant, respectively.
With the added features, the Tiago XZ+ now takes on the new Santro more competitively – especially in the top-spec guise where the Santro Asta (O) equipped with a touchscreen system, costs Rs 5.45 lakh.
