Bringing relief for the automakers and customers alike, the GST has effectively reduced prices of cars across segments, save for hybrids. While carmakers happily passed on benefits to the customers, Tata Motors was among the first auto giants to announce GST prices for its products. Tata’s popular hatchback, Tiago has also witnessed price cut among other vehicles in the line-up with prices going down marginally. After the GST implementation, the hatchback is currently priced at Rs 3.21 lakh and goes up to Rs 5.25 lakh for the petrol line-up. While the diesel range starts from Rs 4.97 lakh and the top-spec variant comes for Rs 5.48 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
Faring well against rivals in the segment, Tiago recently achieved the milestone of 1 lakh unit bookings. Just so you know, Tiago was launched last year in India at introductory price of Rs 3.20 lakh for the base petrol variant. With the recent GST price cut, the prices equate the introductory prices at the time of launch. Read More About: Tata Kite 5 Sedan | Tata Nexon Compact SUV | Tata Hexa Crossover
An interesting trivia about the car reveals that out of 1 lakh bookings, around 65,000 units have been delivered so far. The AMT equipped variant and the range-topping variants in the line-up are the most popular among customers and rake in good monthly numbers. Earlier launched only with manual gearbox, the company recently added an AMT gearbox to the CZA trim in the carline. The Tiago range is available with a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and a 1.05-litre oil burner. It additionally comes with two drive modes- Sports and City, this makes it the first car in the segment to offer Sport mode.
