In line with our commitment to launch products that cater to the requirement of the ever- growing customer, we are happy to launch the TIAGO AMT today.

In addition, it boasts of 2 drive modes City and Sports, for a peppy driving skill and city cruising. The Manual mode helps shift gears at a flick of a gear stick for an engaging experience.
