As per the information from Website, i think there will not be any change in the wheel arches/body claddings , because they have mentioned the changes as
" The Indica V2 range, including the Xeta, the NA Diesel and the V2 Turbo, now sports a new front bumper with chrome inlaid grille, a set of new dual-tone outer rear-view mirrors, new front fog lamps, stylish dual chamber head lamps and a pair of new bison tail lamps which have been the signature feature of its stylised appeal."

Hard luck amtak, they've retained those cheap looking false wheel arches that come off so effortlessly.

In my opinion, the original IDEA-styled Indica was the best looking of the lot. The same thing applies to most of the styling revamps done in India. The original version almost always looks better.

Press Trust of India / New Delhi January 10, 2007

Tata Motors today launched a new range of its premier hatchback, the 2007 Indica and the Indica V2 in petrol and diesel variants.

According to a statement issued by Tata Motors, the 2007 Indica range would be priced between Rs 2.55 lakh and Rs 3.49 lakh for the petrol version, while Indica V2 Diesel would be priced between Rs 3.22 lakh and Rs 4.13 lakh (both ex-showroom Delhi).

The company said its new Indica V2 Xeta continues to be available in the 1.2 litre and the 1.4 litre engine options, while the diesel range is available in the naturally aspirated, turbo-charged, and turbo-charged intercooled 1.4 litre engine options.

The new Indica range, has added features including dual-tone outer rear-view mirrors, new front fog lamps, dual chamber head lamps and a pair of new bison tail lamps and a new front bumper with chrome inlaid grille.

Indica has so far registered a cumulative sales of 1,02,361 units this fiscal during the April-December 2006 period, a growth of 35.8% year-on-year.

Doesnt make sense - isnt there a cost involved in maintain so many different models ? Inventory, Logistics, Production Schedules, et al?

Is the cost worth whatever additional returns they may be getting from having so many variants?

I can understand why there are no engine changes , the all new Indica is coming next year, and that one will get a DICOR engine.

Going by Tata's history, they first introduce the changes in the Indigo and then change the Indica. So we can expect the DICOR Indigo and the Indica later.

Spotted the Indigo DICOR in Gujrat. It was just being put for display. Has small badging on the side called GRAND. The rear door is actually quite long with loaaads of space for the passangers on the back seat with air conditioning vents between the front seats too!!
Here are the pics of the Indigo DICOR:

New front end:


Longer rear doors:


Little change in the rear lights with new Badges:
