as everyone quoted website being slow but its working normally now.
I think only top models are worth noticing but thier prices are not that juicy. Power windows available only in top models .. that disappointing. Logan( base ) going to replace Indigo in taxi segment.

It is a bad car, just lies on the official website , they tell "redefining luxury"hahahahahaha.I think the car is still expensive , it should give in the basic version airbag to be really modern, when someone will see a Logan on the road you will find it ugly for sure.Have some in Belgium.Buy a Honda Jazz at least or a Tata Indigo .I guess the LOGAN doesnt have a network for the maintenance

From the prices in the website, petrol is priced almost same and diesel is only about 40k more than Indigo. That surely is a threat to Tata because of the quality discount for Indigo. Unless Indigo comes with the Fiat diesel and that too at same price as now. Even then on space Logan would score.

Ratan Tata should be worried! No wonder he has been raising bogies about 'competitors' financing the troubles he is facing in Bengal.

I dont know why mahindra engineers did not work on ground clearance,155mm that's going to a big drawback.
Mahindra engineers!!!! Does such a species exist???? Scorpio's handling, steering and braking, bolero's engine, body, ergonomics....heck the whole car!!! these things dont sound like sound engineering to me.

petrol seems nicely priced... But, diesel, as usual is commanding a big premium...

well... Seems, Swift diesel wont be threatened as much as everyone predicted...

Space and price were supposed to be wining factors for Logan. Failed at price front. With limited service options it may not click.

OT,Everybody knows scorpio's handling is not good, but the statement you have made is not correct, i think they are much better engineers in mahindra and tata's who have built cars ground up, than the ones in many JV's where technology comes from the foreign collaborator and engineers here do the assembling job.

i dont think its funny to make such comments, even if you had said in lighter vein.
