Cons of the Tiago

  • Plastic quality is not that great. Interior trims can fall off easily
  • ABS was optional when the owner got the car. It should've been standard.
  • NVH levels are not really that great. It is possible to hear even the slightest of noises in the cabin.
  • The AMT gearbox has a lag sometimes when the reverse gear is engaged which can be unnerving at times.

The owner also reports that the car has been very reliable. In his 1.5 years and 21000 km of driving this car, he's never been let down. Additionally, he has told us that the service costs have been quite low. The car has been very smooth and is quite fun to drive in the sport mode.

The owner also reports to us that with his style of driving, the car returns him 14-15 km to the litre within the city. Additionally, when he goes out on the highway, the car does return him in excess of 20 km to the litre. So all in all, not only the maintenance costs but also the fuel costs are low.
