Tata Indigo Manza vs Suzuki Swift Dzire
Mid-size tussle

With the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire enjoying a waiting period of up to five months, it took one launch to bring the mighty Dzire to some sense of reality. Tata's new kid on the block, the Indigo Manza could very well have done without the Indigo moniker. Yet that doesn't take away from the fact that the Manza is a big leap forward for Tata Motors. For one, Tata has left the job of  'engine'eering to Fiat and in return they now have two very decent motors under the hood of the Manza. The Quadrajet 90+ has enough grunt to take the Manza past 160 kph with ease, though it suffers from some turbo lag at low rpm. The Safire petrol is a refined unit that musters decent acceleration as well as driveability, with well chosen gear ratios. Not only is the Indigo Manza a better looking and finished car, it's also well loaded with features like the Blue Tooth music system with audio controls on the steering wheel, a digital real time tripmeter and safety kit like airbags and ABS on the higher end versions. Space isn't a constraint either with ample legroom at the front and rear, and enough space for five persons to fit in.

The Swift Dzire, on the other hand has a bit of contrived styling. Its looks are debatable, most comments bordering on the negative. Yet, the Dzire changed the way consumers looked at entry C-segment offerings. Maruti Suzuki worked hard on delivering a complete package, which it has. From the classier interiors, to the overall kit, the Dzire represents great value. The two engines, the 1.3 Multijet and 1.3 petrol have enough get up and go, thanks to the lower kerb weight of the Dzire. It means it delivers better fuel efficiency numbers than the Dzire. Rear seat space isn't as generous, but Maruti have made changes to the seat over the Dzire hatchback to offer comfortable seating. Ride quality is good, but the Manza trumps it. However, in the handling department, it is the Dzire that feels more sporty and responsive, with the Manza losing out due to its wooly steering and soft suspension setup

In the end, while the Indigo Manza is better equipped, with better space and at a more competitive price, the Dzire offers a much better drive and the chance of better resale value. Yet, when viewed in entirety, it is the Manza that wins the day for Tata Motors, but the Dzire has been a creditable runner up too.

I had booked Dzire its take more time for delivery, i like performance in dzire. My uncle have manza it is comfort but with one year it became engine noise in hills less picup but i here dzire is best compare to all less maintenance and less serive charge.

I bought a manza last year & having a problem.i called to tata motors 10 times & still the problem is there.How efficient the TEAM MANZA.
  Posted by rr at 28th September,2011
Pay less and get 90PS power, Pay more and get 75PS of power. So which is best? obiviously Manza
  Posted by williams at 17th September,2011
i took manza last year i feel great. Handling manza is very nice n comfortable than dzire. As the suspension is soft it is too nice to drive. Get some extra fittings n make manza more preety.
  Posted by sx at 5th September,2011
DZire is useless....Manza is great
  Posted by amir at 1st September,2011
I prefer swift dzire over manza simply because its efficiency to deliver more mileage and less on maintainence.Moreover i the look is extremely wonderful of dzire,and manza looked horrible
  Posted by ravi at 23rd August,2011
i brougth manza last year there is sssoooooooooooo comforttable
  Posted by ansh at 20th July,2011
both of them r gud cars.. both of them hav sum pros nd cons like manza has low quality interior material nd dzire lacks leg room in the back seat.. But the thing is that manza has much more features like dis driver info system), driver seat adjustable nd many other... the best part for dzire is dat its pick up is betta than manza dats it... rest if u purchase ny car nd sell it afta 3-4 yrs both will get u almost the same the amt of money so please dont think abt the resale untill n unless u want to sell it of in a yr...rest abt the service stations, they all difer from state to state.. like ova here in CHD we r provided daam gud service... nd fro sum people who thinks dzire is betta lukin , please people it is also based on swift, at the tata people tried to do sumthin diff wid the back, not like maruti puttin the same tail lamps as the swift, nd the interior seriously sucks .....so in my opinion manza has a little edge ova swift tough dzire is ok ok type
  Posted by ravi keshri at 16th July,2011
well Manza has the advantage of luxurious interior & better space, mileage on highways r far better than dzire, talking abt power manza is more powerful than dzire, & with more powerful engine delivering a mileage of 21 kmpl compared to dzire which is 20.2 kmpl with 75 ps of power....so tata gives a good deal
  Posted by navreet at 1st July,2011
the dzire is the sweetest car in india.its mileage and road performence is unbelieveable although the manza looks just uncompleted car.it looks dirty.i know that most of the comments are in the favour of manza.but i think there is no comparison to dzire.i say to you to buy a maruti dzire. it will make you glad.thank you
  Posted by pppppsssss at 26th June,2011
dzire is always best.... nice car.. engine of dzire is too good.. and tata car are not so much good... so dzire is best......
  Posted by nazeer at 24th June,2011
hey guys i really say the manza is the best which has the wonderfull spacies and a awarded engine of quatrajet engine. which is the best value for money car i hope tata is the one and only to give a best price of a luxury car segment.

  Posted by Reyansh Verma at 11th June,2011
I think Manza is better than that rubbish dzire, because dzire look is not good, i think that manza have good features and spaceful, its pickup is better than dzire....so who will buy manza he will be happy and who will by dzire he will be sad..................
  Posted by Reyansh at 11th June,2011
Swiftdzire is a bad and horrible looking car... i think manza is good looking and have good features comparing dzire... manza's pickup is good..thats why tata is better than maruti suzuki..somanza is the best...........

I'm confusing to buy a car dzire or tata manza , Which one is more better?
  Posted by K.K. Sharma at 26th March,2011
Manza have more features than dzire but the product of maruti has more value and goodwill in the prevailing market.Hence, the product of maruti is fruitful. So overall dzire is the best and go for dzire.
  Posted by Navneet prakash at 22nd March,2011
manza is d best...you belive or not ..its spacing its headroom ..most of all its dashing look is fabulous..go for manza ...160kph it goes easily

I am planning to buy a sedan diesel car, but I am really confused with Indigo Manza Aqua & Swift Dzire VDI. Which one to buy & why? Pleas give me the correct advice.
  Posted by Akshay at 10th March,2011
I drive Swift Dzire VDi and it gives d best millage in d traffic. I get 14 to 15 kmpl in bumper to bumper traffic. The car has enough space, we can feel d turbo charged engine while accelerating... Maruti could have done something better on the interiors.... but rest the car is best in its class.

Long ago Men Used horses, and they loved their horses. I acquired my horse (Car) after much comparison. I own a MANZA really i must say if u know how to own a horse u will love this horse. massage it well it will gallop. kiss it before mounting it will give u a orgasm on highway. Dont compare cars like a piece of steel,compare them as alive things used by live men So i say Happy Manza

Maruti has to be that gulity. Manza is very very VFM and gets features and looks. DZiRe has worst legroom and the Esteem,after putting Indigo in junkyard,is now in the parking.But,the Etios is best in India. Vista is tall,Swift is too cramped and Vista/Manza/Etios/UpcomiNG Liva are kings.

i recently bought Manza to gift ma Dad this Diwali , i found so many reasons behind this. When i compared Dzire with it, Manza won the race and stylish complete SEDAN look similer to the german cars.I wud like to highlight the point which u've mentioned here abt the suspension and steering, yes offcourse supension is exactly same as u said but m disagree with u on steering. I found no problem with it, whenever i drove it, i never used ma both hands. Only thing i found wrong in the car is the cheap or the low quality material been used in inr=terior dashboard, however it has a great look. Over all Manza is the best option to buy.

  Posted by Manoj Kumar Roy at 7th November,2010
The article is informative.It will be more prudent to have a detailed comparison between the two cars with regards to mileage (practical condition), steer-ability, maintenance - both petrol & diesel vers.,cost of labour in after-sales service,resale value,parts longivity and other aspects so that a purchaser can have a greater insight into his selection of a perticular model.

you cannot compare dezire with manza as its more than two decades maruti is having lots of experience of making passanger cars compared to tata of just 8 to 10 years. Dezire has to be best compared to manza tata has yet to cross long way to compare with maruti dezire rocks
  Posted by Sameer Dudani at 18th October,2010
Manza is the ultimate car for its price range... specially for people with height above 5'10".... mine is 6.1 feet and i fit myself in it without any mess even when drivers seat is pulled out completely.... some upgrades in manza will make it enough to compete with Honda CITY...

dont waste your time in comparing here. if you have any doubt better buy manza & desire. then compare
  Posted by Ranga at 19th June,2010
Hi, Manza is definitely better. People have formed opinions without doing a right comparison (Diesel cars maintenance is going to be more than Petrol cars. Tata has been predominantly in Diesel segment and Maruti (Suzuki) has been in petrol segment). Manza is fun to drive, lots of space and great VFM...

A boot that too UGLY is the only difference between A Swift and DZire where as Vista and Manza are considerably different cars. I have no idea why someone will buy DZire over Swift, unless someone is obsessed with the ugly boot!! With 90BHP MJD and 90BHP SAFIRE, IMO Manza beats DZire all hands down.

I THINK DZIRE IS GOOD AS COMPARE TO MANZA IF WE LOOK BOTH CARS FROM BACK DZIRE LOOK MORE ATTRACTIVE AS COMPARE TO INDIGO MANZA.TATA IS NOT HAVING SO GOOD ENGG BUT BY DRIVING DZIRE(DIESEL)I FEEL AS I AM DRIVING PATROL CAR.THE DDIS ENGINE OF DZIRE IS REALY GOOD.AS DZIRE IS IN WAITING.

Tata's new kid on the block, the Indigo Manza could very well have done without the Indigo moniker. Yet that doesn't take away from the fact that the Manza is a big leap forward for Tata Motors. For one, Tata has left the job of 'engine'eering to Fiat and in return they now have two very decent motors under the hood of the Manza. The Quadrajet 90+ has enough grunt to take the Manza past 160 kph with ease, though it suffers from some turbo lag at low rpm. The Safire petrol is a refined unit that musters decent acceleration as well as driveability, with well chosen gear ratios. Not only is the Indigo Manza a better looking and finished car, it's also well loaded with features like the Blue Tooth music system with audio controls on the steering wheel, a digital real time tripmeter and safety kit like airbags and ABS on the higher end ve

As rightly said in the write up the Dzire is a creditable runner up -- MIND YOU A RUNNER UP. However at the end of the day, it is winning that counts and not participation that matters. Hence full kudos to Tata Motors for Manza -- THE WINNER MANZA

Dzire owners with families - take a test drive of Manza . . . with family not just you . . . and ensure the rear seats are occupied too . . . your family will give you the feedback and am sure the vote will be for Manza. Bachelor Dzire owners - Keep rocking in your Dzires !! But bet a Manza can outrun a Dzire and even a Verna. I'hv tested it . . and you can try too. Can touch 160 easily and very stable on the road. But you use Dzire and like Dzire not just for speed but for the sporty feel and look and driver comfort the feel of a "great car brand". Dzire and Manza are two very different cars as per the needs of the user and just cannot be put in the same league to compare. If the need is comfort, space and value for money then its Manza. If the need is driv-ing pleasure, driv-er pleasure then its Dzire.

Iv used both cars. Swift Dezire is good, but when comparing to Manza it is nothing. When we drive we can feel Manza's appeal. Dear guys, Take opinions only from users of Manza and Desire. Dezire's style is in exterior only. If you buy Desire After 3-4 months you will fed down of that car. This is my experience. So go for Manza. Dont waste your money and time with Dezire.

  Posted by Atul at 21st April,2010
For Petrol, I will say Dzire is a better option. but keeping in mind the price, power, space and other features I would definitely go for Manza when it comes to Diesel version with a hope that TATA will improve their after sales services....

  Posted by Vijay Sharma at 20th April,2010
I found that Dzire is a value for money car. On the road it is not too much heavy on your pocket. On the other hand Maruti is the brand name meant for Indian peole. So, go with Dzire & fulfill your desires by driving a dream car at affordable price.

  Posted by Manu at 11th April,2010
i think manza is a better choice ( diesel version ) .... space , price and the quadrajet engine ...its the same engine used in dzire/linea/punto/swift vdi i guess ...its just tuned for more power in manza is what i read somewhere .. so i think manza is more vfm .. yeah ..the indigo tag sucks .. but well .. i think tatas were bold enough and true enough to still hold on to that name even though am sure .he knows , it wld be a lil risky !

No doubt that all features are too gud as compared with Dzire, but then where does Manza stands if we compare the MILEAGE? Manza Petrol is 10-11 DZIRE Petrol is 15-16 Also Dzire HAS K SERIES EURO IV ENGINE.

ELEGENT LOOKS OF MANZA AND ENGINE PERFORMANCE WAS QUITE GOOD AND REAR SEATING OF MANZA IS EXTRAORDINARY COMPARE WITH SWIFT DEZIRE. DEZIRE THE BODY SHAPE OF SWIFT FOLLOWS JUST LIKE THAT AND THE SUSPENSION REMAINS SAME LIKE SWIFT COMPARE WITH D'ZIRE. DEZIRE IS NOT A COMPLETE SEDAN VERSION . MANZA IS VERY COMFORT IN LEGROOM, LUMBAR SEATS HEIGHT ADJUSTMENTS IN TOP ENDS IS VERY GOOD FEATURES WHAT TATA GIVEN. OVERALL MANZA IS BETTER IN PRICING, COMFORT, STYLISH LOOKS, GOOD INTERIORS, CABLE OPERATED GEAR BOX, GOOD ENGINE WITH SPEED, AND BEST IN ITS CLASS OF VEHICLES.

Peanuts features, Having improved electronics of audiosystem / Space when There is Computers used for space simulation , Companies prefer use the part supplied from vendors there in they push the old as much as possible. Why not Solar CAR , Battery powered vehicles should be sold much cheaper than the entry level petrol cars. IT dosent mean just hikeup the price of cars and show discount. Since India may not prefer to run Credit driven business there by Overseas companies prefer to setup thier units in India where in they have good Supply chain management for automanufacturing.

  Posted by Mehul at 20th January,2010
Rear seat space of Manza is unmatched, compared to it the Dzire is like a cramped pigeon hole. If your going to be driven, then Manza is your car among the two. I hear Manza has more room than Merc E-class. Of course a Tata car is not as refined as Suzuki but for a near 6 lac petrol car with such offering and space, this is a better option. The white colour with alloy wheels looks good, but in looks the department both are near equals. While Manza looks a bit odd in looks, and is a bit reminiscent of Indigo, Dzire looks most awkward in design but a Swift with a boot is preferred by many so you have a market for it. Ride on the Manza is good, far better than the Indigo. Its sans all the NHV. Think Tatas have a winner here the only worry will be a better option coming from competition. Let us not forget Manza may eat in to the market types of Renault also if the diesel engine as good or comparable. In the long run Tatas still need to prove in the refinement department, especially inter

both cars peices of junk the most decent sedan today in India was the opel astra sadly Indians didnt get it and are now saying wow to thse pseudo sedans, the next best thing India has today in affordable range is the safari dicor and scorpio sedans arent suitable for indian roads till the complete quadrilaterla is completed and till the people learn to drive in lanes and not in opposite way that too on a freeway as evident on the mumbai pune xpressway

Akshit, Hi..You have mentioned buying Swift Desire as against Manza...be more specific...why so?
  Posted by sharan at 31st December,2009
Manza is much better quality product from Tatas where as Dezire by suzuki is somewhat welded boot to swift designed by ameatur designers from Japan and trainees from India who have no idea of how a sedan should handle at cornering and how the boot and front should be made to join.Any way its a suzuki who are known for their prized designs like Omni death box,Egg shaped Estilo , and Roll over Jimny's

  Posted by ani tripathi at 27th December,2009
i dont how many of u have gone through details research regarding the both cars what all i want to say the wait of 4 to 5 months for dezire is worth as the tata vechile itslef is a problem and people who wish to get in trouble should buy tata car i myself went to many tata car pepole they themself is not using the cars of tata they prefer maruti and they made me to go for maruti dezire instead of manza and i really want to thank them from deep of my heart....
  Posted by S Sudheer at 23rd December,2009
I have bought Dzire over Manza after much deliberations... and i am happy about my decision and just love my car... What really made me buy Dzire is truly Maruti's impressive performance and i can truly trust them with their product( my old car is 7 years old..absolutely no maintainance till date).. however the same cannot be said about Tata Manza.. However Manza scores well in terms of space...and please dont forget that "the waiting period" of any car only proves how well the car is truly Dzired!!!
  Posted by Hemanathan at 6th January,2010
  Dear Sudheer, happy that you bought the dezire.....i would just like to inform you that the waiting period is not just because of the no. of bookings made for the car....Maruti..has a lot of models to manufacture...but they do not have the enough production line to continously manufacture the dezire...if they do it...in a seperate line, the wait period will be nil

I wouldnt buy a car called Indigo Manza because I would feel it has an Indigo hangover. And it does! The Test ride did nothing for me. But the Dzire just took my breath away! I bought it finally and got delivery in 1 day - pulled some strings. It is a fun car and never fails to amaze me. Maruti always has a trick up it's sleeve. BTW, those who think I am just sucking up to Maruti, well... I am!
  Posted by Kingpin at 14th January,2010
  Got delivery in one day.!!Stop the lies.. Dzire took your breathe away,when compared to Manza, Dude what are you OSM SUZUKI in disguise. Both the cars are a compromise but extreme value for money. Tata gives space and comfort, while the Dzire gives the maruti tag .

I thought BSM with all it's "Is it in your blood" type reviews would be the last company to suck up to these car makers. Turns out am wrong! It's not the first Maruti to win their praises these days.
  Posted by Amartya Banerjee at 6th December,2009
I like BSM for the way the people on board talk about cars and bikes. Your passion for all things automotive shines through in most of the things that appear in the magazine as well as online. Then I come across tripe like this. What does it take to come out without sucking up to Maruti Suzuki? Read the last paragraph, it sounds as if you grudgingly had to admit that the Manza was better. I hope you can edit this and make it more objective. If you think the Dezire is better, say so however, if you think otherwise, please be transparent with the way you announce the winner.

Nagendra, you are right. Rims of paper are consumed to praise a Maruti vehicle. But only a few lines for Tata.

I agree to most of the comments posted and am also quite attracted towards Manza. There is however a question that Tata cars are great for initial 50-60K kms. The problem starts after that. Is it true??? Moreveor with not much time left for VW polo to join the race, I am puzzled
  Posted by Ganesh Nair at 3rd December,2009
Hi Nitin, Before commenting please take a test drive. And of course, pullback the driver seat of dzire to max (Anybody over 6 feet requires it)and try to sit on the back seat. Surprisingly not even your 5 year old can sit there. Take both vehicles (diesel)on a low speed on an uphill drive see for yourself, which one pulls better. Clip both above 90 kmph and apply harsh brake- comment on which one has a better road grip. Your comment on fuel efficiency surprised me,anyway I will check it myself again and come back. Till now I feel Manza stands way ahead of Dzire. Ganesh
  Posted by ajjampur ramadas at 3rd December,2009
Sir, I have taken both the cars on test drive. Although Manza is roomy spacewise, quality of workmanship (particularly regarding doors, dicky as well as engine bonnet) is not that much laudable. Definitely, it is much better car compared to Dzire. At any rate, I will go in for Manza, as it is really good car and VFM. Hats off to TATAs for such a wonderful car. But I hear, TATA's services are not that good as Maruti's. I hope that TATAs improve.
  Posted by Nagendra at 2nd December,2009
I don't understand why you guys try to sound so "politically correct" by listing pros and cons of the Dzire so many times in the last few lines. If the Manza deserves to win, then just say it!
