Two variants? According to veyron, there'll be three: Indica diesel
Indica turbo diesel
Indica Turbo diesel+intercooler

I think it makes sense to give so much variety but you don't agree. Why?

Dude.
An indica is way better then an Omni.
A Versa however will be the best option.
I think i saw the new Indigo.
It has the bigger wheel archs like indica.
Not sure if it is an indica/go.

hello
i went to concorde and found out that TATA has changed Catalytic converter and telling it is EURO III. any idea about the performance drag this CC will have on engine as it will be reducing the exhaust?
any idea why TATA is delaying its CRDi versions?

Fieroid, the Indica is way superior than the Omni in everyway. Lambo, i also think that the Indica beats the Versa too. Its much more of a car than the versa. If i had to pick between the three, i'd pick the Indica no matter what my requirements were.

I had a Indica V2, which i sold it in 8 months.... Terrible quality, No driving pleasure.... Only value for money car... Its a car for people who wants to get from point A to B.... My sis was not able to drive it at all inspite of being a power steering version...

The problem arises when you treat the Omni as a car. It isn't one. There are two areas where the Omni would beat all the others hollow and that is in luggage space and ease of driving. I have owned an Omni for 3 1/2 years and 41200 km and believe me, nothing beats an Omni for congested city conditions and the station / airport run (in the 5 seater guise).

It has its flaws (if you think of it as a car), offers little creature comforts and is not the safest thing on 4 wheels but then you shouldn't really drive an Omni the way you would an 800.

the only changes in indica euro3 are change in position of cat. con. and use of electronic fuel pump.according to tata the power and torque figures are same as the previous variant though the engine is expeced to be more smooth and less flat spots which never existed in the indica diesel.HOWEVER the petrol variant get more powerful 32 bit processor and the cat con has been placed nearer to the engine to improve the emissions.
