Most of the aforementioned new additions are in line with the Tigor XZ+ variant launched in October 2018. Apart from the new features, the XZ+ carries all the features of the XZ variant.

Since the Tiago XZ+ is just a variant addition, no changes under the hood are expected. Tata Tiago is powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol and 1.0-litre three-cylinder Revotorq diesel mills.

The petrol mill churns out 83.8bhp of power and 114Nm of torque, while the diesel mill produces 69bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The Tiago XZ+ variant is not offered with the AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) option.

Tata Tiago XZ+ will go up against Hyundai's new Santro top-spec variant, the Asta (O) that costs Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
