Default Now DICOR in entry level Indigo LS - 5.25 lacs (ex-showroom Delhi)

Tata Motors establishes another benchmark with Tata Indigo – launches Country’s
Entry level Common Rail Diesel Sedan




Tata Motors today announced the launch of its entry level common rail diesel (DICOR) offering in the sedan range with the Indigo LS version at Rs.5.25 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

The 70PS sedan delivering a maximum torque of 140Nm @ 1800 – 3000 rpm comes equipped with Heating & Air-conditioning as well as Power Steering. This model also features beige coloured interiors along with body coloured bumpers, and is being offered in six attractive colours.

The 1.4 litre common rail diesel engine was first offered on the company’s premium saloon – the long wheel base Indigo XL (at Rs.6.15 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the Classic trim level). It then appeared as a top-end offering on the normal Indigo (the LX version) at an ex-showroom price of Rs.5.85 lakhs. Now with the Indigo LS DICOR at Rs.5.25 lakhs, it becomes the country’s most attractively priced common rail diesel offering amongst sedans.

The Tata Indigo range has been a best seller in the entry mid-size segment since its launch in December 2002 and has sold over 150,000 cars till date.

Looks like Tata has zeroed in on Logan. No way will they let Mahindra take the lead easily. I guess soon you will have a Indica DICOR priced 50K less than the swift!

They must have been waiting to see initial response to Logan and then fix price...good move.
Thumbs up

Damn! Tata is really going for the jugular in all segments that they are present. Good show Mr. T.

Just saw (an hour back) a brand new Dicor XL with the front left Indicator(on the side panel & not headlight one) popped out & this was a brand new car with all the pastic covers & without number plate on its way to BU bhandari showroom

kudos to Tata for the move, hopefully other manufacturers also start some downward revisions so that the end customers are benefited. Hope the move doesnt compromise quality.

If only Tata can improve their quality, they could give Maruti a run for their money. To me it looks like bye bye Logan. This one should kill any more sales the Logan could have thought of having.

OT Its difficult to make up your mind when its about superbikes and the GSX1000 is the youger sibling of the BUSA and the R1, who doesnot like it. BTW i choose the CBR1000RR in another thread, lol
