Can somebody (Milin?) summarize the differences between the LWB Indigo and the SWB Indigo..

I am hoping that the Ground-Clearance is atleast as better as the previous one else by increasing the WB, the GC goes for a Toss, and we run the risk of scraping the bottom at Speed Bumps on the outer-ring road in Bangalore..

Okay then this is the Indigo I saw in Cochin (no regn) with the new Orange-Rust-Gold color and new stretched and flattened grille + new headlamps - it did look slightly longer to me, but I didnt think the new Indigo would be out so soon.

Well the differences between the SWB and LWB are not much they are as follows:
1) New Front Grille (as explained by Steeroid)
2) New Headlamps
3) New Rear Badging (TwinCam 16 Valve etc)

From the insides dint get a good view, but will post any info..

the ground clearance looked decent on the LWB.....

Good to know about the new LWB Indigo. I am sure Tata will plonk in capable engines into this. My only worry with Tata releasing something so soon is whether the R&D is fully done or it is the Tata way of doing R&D (on customers)?

Well Salil, i was called to have a look at the LWB Indigo at the Company workshop (not officially) as said earlier the cars are here for an Ad-Film Shoot and the day i went the LWB indigos were out and i happened to spot the new Indica (only cosmetic changes)...Also spotted the LWB Indigo w/o Reg Plates outside Inox (Nariman Point)

Sorry Salil no pics were allowed at the Workshop and sdaly dint have a cam when i spotted the LWB Indigo outside Inox...

Still there is no updates in TATA website for the pictures!!! Hope they are getting it done because the Indica Xeta web page can't be accessed.

Lets just pray that TATA's have this time removed those cheap looking wheel arches...and the body claddings...! and also if the number plate is moved to the boot instead of the bumper...! cant wait to see the "New" indica!
