Tata Motors launches the Tiago XT(O) variant in India at Rs 5.48 lakh, ex-showroom. The new variant is based on the mid XT trim of the hatchback.
However, the XT(O) is placed below the XT variant and is Rs 15,000 cheaper XT Vs XT(O) Exterior Features There are no exterior differences between both variants including the body-coloured roof, ORVMs and door handles.
Other exterior features: 14-inch steel wheels, LED turn indicators on ORVMs, Chrome strip on the grille and Integrated roof spoiler
XT Vs XT(O) Interior Features & Technology, The interiors of both variants feature a host of differences with the XT(O) missing out on several features. This includes a 2-din audio head unit, which is no longer offered on the new variant. Other missing features: Rear-view monitor, Harman Audio, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto and Bluetooth Connectivity
However, the company will fit the XT(O) variant with 4 speaker and steering-mounted audio controls as standard. This means the audio head unit could be offered as an accessory from the dealer. The major difference between the two variants is that the XT(O) is offered with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. However, the XT trim comes with an optional 5-speed AMT. The engine, however, remains the same. 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol Max power: 85bhp @ 6000rpm Peak torque: 113Nm @ 3300rpm.
The variant terminology seems to be the opposite in the Tiago. Generally, the suffix (O) to a trim level means added equipment. However, in the hatchback, it is the opposite as the XT (O) misses out on several features over the XT trim. For Rs 15,000 less, the missing head-unit results in a host of convenient features associated with the audio system. The Tiago rivals the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Wagon R, Hyundai Santro and the Datsun Go.
