Does this varient have a 1.4 heart or is it the same 1.2? if it's 1.4 then it would be better.

Okay man! I've now seen it all. Especially when I see a "sporty" car with an LPG kit!

And thank god, the decals are available only on the GLS version. Atleast people have an option there.

and the irony of it ? My diesel indica is still faster than this "sport"
but then again, there is probably a large target market for this type of modifications


PS: tata should have launched a white and black combo indica, a la the anniversary vista. I mean, the indica turns 10 and tata launches an anniversary vista?
its like the kid brother getting the gifts on the big brother's 10th birthday. Tata ought to launch a limited anniversary edition of the regular indica too. same colour combo, alloys and gold trim!

One more cheat. I am tired to see these sports editions. In India it seems add a few stickers, do a bit of sticker job on decals and you have a sports edition.
Esteem Velocity, Zen Estilo, Alto and now this car joins them.

No mention of any changes where they are supossed to be i.e. under the hood. No mentioned of safety equipment either.
Looks like the Indian customer can be fooled rather easily and the reason behind these editions coming out with now fixed frequency.

All these sports edition should be banned so the customer wont be cheated any more. Somebody help out the Indian auto companies as they try these tactics just to increase sales IMO.

+1 to that. I'm so sick and tired of seeing this so called sport and music editions. What is an LPG kit doing in a 'Sports' edition. This is hilarious!!

Probably all the Bangalore Cab Drivers should be called in by TATA to design their sport cars.

All the pictures posted resemble the cheap stickering on the indicabs.

I think the Painted bumpers/arches and the LPG option make it worthy of the wacky mod jobs thread. I've already nominated it

red car + white stickers + grey bumpers + steel wheels = sports car!

Kudos to TATA for offering the indian market a LPG sports car, we need such technology here!

(only 2 smileys are allowed, isnt it? DAMN!)
