What type of TPMS is used for UK Taigo models - direct (a sensor in each wheel) or indirect (no sensors in wheels)?

Indirect, based on data from the ABS which calculates tyre diameter. When the diameter reduces, you have a loss of pressure. Much cheaper than sensors. From my experience, it works well.
