The Tiago’s petrol engine has proven its mettle over a prolonged period but which transmission offers better performance when you are out on the road?

The Tata Tiago petrol has proven to be a great pick for several buyers thanks to its tractability and fuel efficiency. It’s available with both a 5-speed MT and an AMT. But how much of a difference does the transmission make, given both the cars are equipped with the same engine? We find out.

Specifications

1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Revotron

Displacement

1199cc

Power

85PS@6,000rpm

Torque

114Nm@1800-3000rpm

Transmission

5-speed MT/AMT

The 1.2-litre petrol engine on the Tiago is a refined unit with peak power arriving at 6,000rpm and max. torque kicking in from 1800rpm and going all the way up to 3000rpm. Both the transmissions are 5-speed units but how much does the convenience of two pedal technology cost, in terms of outright performance and fuel efficiency? Answers below.

The Tiago MT is quicker off the line by 2 seconds on its way to a 100kmph. The story remains the same when you pit them against each other in a quarter-mile drag race as the AMT is slower by 3.6 seconds, which is a lifetime in terms of straight line runs. It is also slower by 5kmph when it reaches the mark. However, one aspect where the AMT beats the manual is in terms of fuel efficiency, in both the city as well as highway. But how do the two stack up against each other when it comes to braking?

Tata Tiago XZA AMT - Detailed Review

The Tiago gets disc brakes up front and drum brakes at the rear. The manual version comes to a halt in a respectable distance. In fact, it is as quick to stop as the Hyundai Tucson AT, as per our tests. The Tata Tiago AMT, on the other hand, covers more distance than its manual counterpart before coming to a standstill. The reason could be a heavier kerb weight of 1024kg against the MT’s 930kg. However, we can’t rule out other variables like tyre condition, air pressure and others either.
