@Crazy Driver: I felt that the DICOR version looked identical to the current Indica version from the outside, but I don't have a great eye for detail, so can't be sure.

Tushky the pics given by you are those of the export version. The Indica has had an exterior upgrade since, with the smiley grill replaced with a flattened grill.

I think, Tatas have lost the momentum in diesel market. Swift diesel is really picking up and Multijet really scores will over Dicor in terms of NVH, fuel efficiency, power and reliability. I'm not sure Indica dicor will ruffle any feathers or create any exicitement especially if priced at a little premium to TCIC indica. Tatas really need to think hard to create value proposition to their, would be, customers when they have other options corpping up. And their stock price is reflecting their difficult future.

@rajdoll, one interesting aspect here is when we say "at a premium to TCIC" how much can be this premium? I have a feeling that the TCIC prices will go down further to where the NA version today is and the Dicor will take the price band of the current TCIC. This is because, as it is the DLG TCIC Indica sells for some 4.2 lacs ex-showroom whereas the Indigo Dicor is for 5.25lacs. thats a pucca 1 lakh difference. I do not see much elbow room here to fit in a DLG Dicor.

At max what Tatas will manage to do is to keep the TCIC prices the same and then price the equivalent Dicor versions at a 20-25k premium. So if they keep selling the TCIC DLG for 4.2lakhs then the Dicor DLG should be 4.4 lakhs or so.

From your signature, i guess you own one.

Am not qualified enough to say this, as i dont own a TATA car. However, some friends do, and dont think they all hate their cars.

TATA cars are good VFM, and offer good levels of comfort and space. If those are the priorities, then TATA cars serve well.

However, NVH, quality, reliability etc are thrown out of the window after usage for some time.

That is the point, it further narrows the price gap with Swit DDIS. I think, less than 50k, and with that Swift will surely look more value for money unless your need is space.

I own one, done 26k, and will agree for NVH but not reliability and quality, considering the price you pay( tell me which car offers better quality for its price in that segment).

Thumbs up Looks True

Looks true this is a screen capture from Tata's Italian site seems to indicate the new Indica DiCOR (2007 Shape) is going to be here soon.



Think "King Julian" spotted the vehicle correctly during test runs, shope the launch is sooner than later

The Indica DiCOR (2007 Shape) was launched in Europe around Dec 06 at the Bologna Motor Show - MOTOR SHOW

On Wednsday I was chatting with a person working in Tata Motors Assembly line.

When I asked him about Indica DICOR, his responce was that they are all waiting for DICOR to launch and it will be launched very soon.
He also went on to say that they are all reliaing heavily on Indica DICOR for Indica's sales growth as according to him the sales for Indica has dropped very much.
When I asked him about reference of DICOR in Indica manual and about upcoming changes in DICOR he refused to answer and simply changed the topic.

i hope they change the muck ugly interiors and plastics on the indica dicor at least. the current interiors are horrendous ! i just cant stand the instrument cluster (tombstone) and the AC vents.

the 'all new' indica certainly looks promising. hope it gets here faster than i buy the diesel swift. or maybe even the diesel getz.
