Tata Motors has silently launched the new AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) avatar of its compact sedan, Tigor, in India. The Tigor AMT, available in the top-specs -- XTA and XZA -- has been priced at Rs 5.75 lakh and Rs 6.22 lakh, respectively (prices ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Tigor AMT is otherwise just the same as the regular Tigor in its style and features, except the addition of the AMT box. Tigor also uses the same AMT box of Tiago sourced from Magneti Marelli. The Tigor AMT is available only in the petrol variant.

Tata had launched Tigor in India on March 29. Tigor comes in both petrol and diesel engine options. The Revotron 1.2-litre petrol engine of Tigor churns out 83.8bhp of power at 6,000rpm and 114Nm of torque at 3,500rpm, while the Revotorq 1.05-litre diesel engine is tuned to generate 69bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. This is the same engine that also does duty in Tiago. Both the engines are available with multi-drive modes – Eco and City.
