Indigo CS is only TDi They want to Milk the consumer in every corner.

The Dicor option after two year, the Quadrajet in 4 years
I think FM need to pass a bill for Tax benefit for Euro 5 engines or Ban TDis now.

The new Indica look more like a beast !!
Good !!
But I don't like the console placed in the center of the dashboard.

The Indica pics are located at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/2008-a...cs-thread.html

I guess the market to which the Xenon caters is still very small, though if someone can open it up, its Tata.

The Scorpio Getaway was also launched last year, not too sure how well its doing. The Xenon though looks a lot better and is a lot more appealing.

I guess they are trying to keep costs low to make it cheaper than the regular Indigo.

I believe its the world's shortest sedan.

Thumbs up

Thank You @a for the providing the release. Tata has now come a long way from where it started. Looking back, Indica was surely a head turner for its looks when it was first launched, but the cars failed to perform after 50000 km, there were more frequent repairs coming up and it was becoming terrible. Now the sumo grand lookss superb and so does all the new variant, Congrats Tata for the relentless hardword and research.

There was also a Winger Executive, available only on order. Features 5 captain's chairs inside + a table, refridgerator, tv screen etc.

It looks like it might be a DC job.

This looks better than the present Indigo. But aren't those wheels smaller for the arches?
