On road price of different models of indigo in bangalore and actual price after discounts

570935 Indigo LS ( discount Rs 35K approximately) = 535935

519567 Indigo VE ( discount Rs 35K approximately) = 484567

544993 Indigo VS ( discount Rs 35K approximately) = 509993

520219 Indigo CS LS ( Power steering and AC) No discounts = 520219
Indigo CS LE = 487174
Is it cheaper than regular indigo with bigger boot?

(discounts include RS 15K loyalty bonus+ corp discount + general discount of 15-18K)

It appears Indigo CS is priced higher than regular indigo inspite of TATA getting excise benefit

If you compare similar trim levels (LS) it would appear that the benefit of lower taxes has been passed on to the consumer - about Rs 16K

I agree with you. Logan might not be as good looking as an accent or an ikon but is a great VFM.
For people like me, who are already driving a hatchback and want to upgrade to a bigger car in the 5-6 lac range; logan is a good option.

The Indigo CS seems to have an ideal platform for a compact sports saloon.... Just think what a mad engine and a stiffer suspension could do there. One of Fiat's great Multijets, maybe?

Looks like the ugly back side ( beyond C pillar) from normal indigo is there in this too.

1) It looks great in red. White too looks great.
2) Big boot that i thought.
3) Built quality improved
4) Engine noise well suppressed inside/outside car
5) Its spacious!

OTR for CS LS, 4.8lac @ TVM

The sales execs claim an avg of 20kmpl and above. As far as driving is concerned it is very sluggish. But overall for the price and for someone who is okay buying an Indica I would recomend buying a cs. Its good for the money.
What I would love to see is a CS with a Fiat 1.3 ++ CRDI engine priced at 5.3 on road. Dont know how far this is.

Absolutely love Tata for what he is doing,
I think he is the one because of whom our automobile industry is thriving & competitors are getting better cars to compete with his level setting cars.
And of course, i also like the compact factor of the CS, cant wait for an X1 platform CS.
That would be sweeet.

the LE indigo CS OTR is 4.64 this might hit the swift Vdi sales- IMHO for a sedan its low, but the only reason why Logan is selling is - its got the foreign badge.

how will the indigo CS be a hit with cabbies? its got a smaller boot, and its longer than the regular indica.

Again - is it just me - or does this look ugly? This looks exactly as an Indica with a dickey added with m-seal.

Atleast on the Indigo they managed to make it look like a sedan and NOT a hatch with a boot, and then the Indigo XL came up, which actually (IMHO Again) looked quite elegant.
Now this -

my 2 cents!

i feel exactly opposite. Tata has done better job in integrating boot to CS than the old Indigo.

Company Claims 20km/lt taht means we shd expect 16km/lt, Can we compnare this with Swift LDi ? if somebody want to pickup one between Swift LDi and Indigo CS ( diesel ) which one shd he pick ?
