From an Indica to an Indigo, no-one speaks the truth purer than a return customer. Congrats on your car Stratos, the Indigo offers a phenomenal value for money package with the most comfortable interiors in terms of ride quality and space. The turbo-diesel is also pretty decent and can well prove itself in the city or on the highway.

Tata has got their quality act a long way since the initial Indica's of 1999...and I am certain you will have a great ownership experience.

hey stratos,

pal , congrats on your new car .

but why wasan ?? i stay at chembur and have heard real horror stories about this guy ...man like he sold quite a few bashed up and 2 nd hand cars to "unsuspecting " customers. thats why for the ikon i went to shakti / shaman and finally chose shakti.

anyways have fun with ur car and like rehaan asked any mods ? though i think even a spoiler looks out of place on the indigo ( sorry pal but that is what i think )


cheers

Hey congrats,
Enjoy your new car.

I too agree, that the Scorpio isn't as big on the inside as it seems to be from the outside. I
ve driven both cars and i found the Indigo to be better in terms of ride quality and "space for money".

Gearbox and peformance, the scorpio was better.

Regards...
