7 Lacs and ZDi. OTR might be around 8L. Anybody will buy Swift Dezire ZDi with all the safety features compared to Logan/Indigo. I can sense the mad rush for this car right now if the pricing mentioned above is correct.

Great work Ram! ZDi with twin Airbags & ABS will be a hit! I think this will be first car in the lower C segment to offer both. It will make all other C segment manufacturers stand up and take notice.

Yeah, maybe this can become the middle class indian's "beemer"! Like the way some good ol' ambys roam around with the 3-pointed star on the bonnet!

beemer looks -basically due to the rear boot design as in the volvo cars .price should be between 40-50k more than the swift counterpart.i dont find any reason why it shouldnt sell,the one opinion i made was that the A -pillar should be body colored.
and this is a design and development made exclusively in INDIA-something to be proud of.

Ram, do you have any snaps that you can share? How does it look from the side profile? Does it evoke mixed feelings like the SX4?

I hope the looks are only subjective. But when you get most of the safety features, FE, Boot etc with the price above price tag, one would seldom care about the looks.

BTW, Ram did you take any snaps.

it was a no-no on snaps.i could have taken but board rules had to be maintained.its the same one which was earlier posted in t-bhp.the surprise was the zdi.we all had the petrol variants in head but this took us for a broad smile.its going to burn the tracks.wheel base and all are same.

i had to mention one more thing ,its-DZIRE.logan and the indigo are to take the hit.indigo is curently the market leader in that segment.sx4 or swift need not be affected at all.they have demarked both these with clear margin.

Hope they address rattling issues to the best possible extent. Nice to hear that looks were not boring atleast for r_h, hence definitely will not be chewed as logon for looks.

More space+boot with just addition of 30 kgs - Will that result in even poor build quality than Swift?

Ram, what about the panel gaps?
Are they as bad as in the picture that was posted in other threads?

I would imagine this is so - its time someone gave Indigo some serious competition in the value segment.

This car would start at 6+L on road for diesel. Value segment will not be a problem for Tata as the CS will be available on road close to 5L.

Nonetheless, great car -this will kill the ailing Logan and be a serious threat to cars like Fiesta & Verna. First time we have a 6L diesel which offers as good engine and dynamics as them.

Now, if the bring the SX4 diesel soon....
