Question New Tata Indica this Diwali? EDIT : Turbo with ABS + Airbags in select showrooms

Tatas launching the New Indica this Diwali, according this report.
Now will this be the next gen Indica or an upgrade of the present one?
It also says about the new Sumo.

Ya there is a chance I think the new Sumo will be here(heard it was called the Sumo Pheonix inside Tata). I doubt the Indica bit though, unless they launch yet another variant right now to keep it's model fresh.

Maybe it'll be the Dicor version. If anyone has more information please post.

Yes, this is a rumor. I am not sure. I guess TATA may launch new models as they see bad sales figures for long time now. New launch will help them better. Some people say, wait and watch this Diwali, its raining.

Dont worry, perhaps they will only take the bookings, the "New Safari" is yet to see the lights of the road even after a week of launch.

So going by this example, the "new others" might take some time too, to come to their owners.

I doubt they might release an all-new product; variants yes. There just isnt the necessary time for a large-scale PR campaign blitz required for a new product launch before Diwali

Its definitely not the all new Indica...that chassis is atleast a year away. This could be the DICOR version.

Chances are good that Indica may come out with a variant, in all probabilities the NA and the Dicor version of engines this Diwalu. They need something to boost up the volumes of their bread and butter car.

The way I was told a few days back Tatas are planning to spoil people for choices. Indica, once all its variants and models are launched, will have a wide set of specs to choose from. They do not plan to take any of the variants off the market as yet.

So you already have the Indica Xetas in two flavors. Indica NA in two flavors and then the turbos in two flavors. Tatas plan to upgrade the NA Indica with a 1.5L engine to tackle the power issue. They also plan to have a Dicor Indica. Later the bigger Indica (codename X1) will also make its appearance. This will sport the Fiat 1.3MJD engine.

Wide set of specs to choose from, and something you do not have in any other car in India. Two different petrol engines, NA engines, Turbo engine, Turbo with Intercooler engine, two flavors of Common Rail engines. Whew! Thats a lot of options Tata.

About the diwali launch I think the higher volume NA engine will make its appearance. At max the Dicor may also take a bow and make its entry.

I read in the newspapers that a sales executive who worked for the dealership you booked your car in committed suicide.

Agreed. The Indigo is available with what? 4 engine choices! Two petrols and two diesels.

Most probably.. i think its gonna be the DICOR version.. i remember seeing some pics of an Indica with a DICOR badge on the side (same place where the swift has the DDIS one).
