    Fire up the engine and you realise that there is a considerable amount of vibration emanating from the 3-cylinder motor at idle. It is not bone-rattling but it can get irritating if you are sat idling in the car for a long time, as can be the case in stop-go city traffic. But, as you get going the engine smoothes out. The overall nature of the engine and gearbox is a bit laid back, with the gearbox preferring to upshift as quickly as possible in the interest of fuel economy. Being an AMT, the gearshifts aren’t fast, but thankfully the Tiago balances it with smoothness. There is minimal head-nod motion during each gear shift, something that AMT-equipped cars are notorious for. The Tiago's gearbox is quite restless, in the 'Eco' or 'City' driving modes it constantly tries to adapt to every pedal input or change in inclination. Learning to control the gearshifts just by modulating the accelerator isn’t as easy as on other automatics. It may upshift as soon as 3000rpm or decide to hold the revs till 4000rpm when it senses a bit of urgency from your right foot. Downshifts may consist of going down one gear, or even two at times - but there is no predicting when it may happen. The best way to use it in the auto mode is to adapt to the gearbox’s nature and take things easy. Pressing the ‘Sports’ button, placed at the bottom of the gearshift console, guarantees that the transmission will shift up only after the engine reaches the 6000rpm redline. If you want almost total control over the gearshifts, you can slot the gear lever into manual mode and push up to upshift or pull down to downshift. Do take a test drive for better clarity.
