Buy New Tata Indigo Manza

Tata Motors have launched the Indigo Manza saloon here today. Based on the J300 platform that also houses the shell of the Indica Vista, the Indigo Manza is now larger and wider than the outgoing Indigo. Yes, you read that right, the regular Indigo will go out of production, with only the CS, Marina and XL variants to be offered going forward.

What Tata have done with the Manza is price it extremely competitvely. Starting at Rs 4.8 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi, the Indigo Manza undercuts nearly all its rivals - including the Ford Ikon, Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, the Renault Logan and Hyundai Accent.

Two new engines are being offered - new to the Indigo, but would be familiar since they also power the Fiat Linea. The 1.4 multi-point, fuel injected Safire petrol produces around 88.5 bhp@6000 rpm and around 116 Nm of peak torque at 4750 rpm. The 1.4 Quadrajet 90 on the other hand produces similar power at 4000 rpm , yet produces nearly 20.4 kgm of torque at 1750-3000 rpm. Both engines can haul this nearly 1.2-tonne car to a top speed in excess of 160 kph, as we found on our testing equipment.

Four variants are being offered - the Aqua, Aura, Aura (ABS) and the Aura +. A new infotainment system using Blue5 - a bluetooth based system will be on offer. This will be standard across the Aura variants, along with stereo controls on the steering wheel,  while a 2-DIN music system will be standard on the Aqua variant. ABS will be standard on the last two variants, with the Aura+ also featuring twin driver-passenger airbags as standard.

The Indigo also features more space on the inside and outside, while benefitting from better quality materials, fit and finish than before. The boot is also large at 460-litres and offers a wide loading lip.

The prices of the car range from Rs 4.8 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi for the basic Aqua petrol variant to Rs 6.75 lakh for the Aura+ diesel variant. The Mumbai prices range from Rs 4.9 lakh to Rs 6.85 lakh.

Tata Motors claims that the entire Indigo range now starts at Rs 3.73 lakh (for the basic CS) and ends at Rs 6.75 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.

Do not get carried away by the combination of price and features.It is a horror. Drove for less than 10000 Kms. but Radiator assembly, Steering rack and pinion replaced. Still noise from suspension is coming for which the dealers are struggling to find the solution and company is pleasantly sleeping over it. There is a hot pipe inside the cabin under the front panel which is uncovered. The dealer says it is a standard feature. ( Wonder how these cars get CMVR approval). Car shock absorbers bottom when the tyre hits the bump and entire front panel shakes... Overall a horror. First and last time bought a TATA car and advise all not to buy it until you have lot of time to waste at the service stations. Already rust has appeared on the bonnet supporting bar which again is normal, as per the dealers. Infact, I met one gentleman during one of my frequent visits to the service station where he showed me his car ( 15 k kms.) full of rust. I am preparing myself for that horror also....

Great job done by Tata. But I think more could be done on its design specially for its boot, but never the less it will give good run for its competetior.

  I completely agree with your opinion; 200%. TATA dealers are very rude in behaviour, especially HAN MOTORS statined at Andheri. I would never recommend anybody to go and buy a TATA car from them. These HAN Motors guys are thinking that they are selling the no.1 car in the world.
