Will the tata discontinue the existing Indigo ?

if not, they need to place LWD indigo much above 6-7 lakhs i guess..

Tata will continue with the existing Indigo...but I can tell you that the LWB has a helluva lot of room at the back!!

Tata had displayed LWB at AutoExpo and it has a lot of room.
Here are some photos of the same

Saw some new Indigos in 3 new (for me since I'm a visitor) colors including a terrific Orangish-Rustish-Gold. They featured a new not-so-smiley (bottom part of the smiley grille is now flat like the old accords and OHCs) grille and new headlamp clusters. I must say they looked pretty good.

Indigo was just upgraded. I doubt any new model will be launched so soon.

You are right..there is a dicor version/a 16valve petrol (both indigo LWB) and also an indica with a new front end and revised tail light cluster.. the front end (headlamps,bumper and air dam look impressive though the grille is slighlty smaller and has two chrome extensions across may not be to everyones liking. the orvm's are borrowed from the new indigo) the rear tail lamp treatment is not very impressive though....no engine changes though for the indica as yet...

What more would you like....as i said changes to the back and front end... no new engine options..side profile stays the same, the back also remains the same except for the new tail light cluster (its still the christmas tree format) interiors were the same (this was an DLE model) except for the A/C panel borrowed once again from the new indigo.....expect a few interior changes for the DLG/DLX but nothin drastic.....mind you this car is here for an ad shoot as of now, so the exteriors are important hence the DLE model.....anything else you would like to know????

spotted a silver indigo outside inox today. was being driven without reg plates only a temp yellow sticker....the interesting part though was the front grille was slightly more pronounced (more chrome stripes) and was longer than the normal indigo...rear end was the same as the new indigo..the badging gave it away though it clearly said Indigo XL and TwinCam 16 valve....could not get a view of the interiors....
