Default New Indica Xeta Sports

Tata today apparently launched a new variant of the Xeta the sports edition.

This seems like one of those Anniversary editions that Alto keeps coming up with.

There is no update on the website nor in TOI but only in Pune Mirror so looks like low key launch or may be they dont have enough funds for proper marketing

WHile the other goodies like warranty & Maintainance package look fine the EMI per lakh looks way above what is offered by nationalized banks.

Here is the advert

Uggghhhh decals. And why would one need a test drive for sport decals, pedals and chrome tipped exhaust?
The 3 year free maintenance does look good though.

They are probably trying to push some existing stock with minimum investment.

The white Vista special edition looks soo much better.

Is it ? Considering they have advertised for a 3 year loan?

first the alto sports, then the estilo sports, and now the xeta sports..
GIVE US A BREAK!!

good way of clearing the rejected stock-have a contract with an accessories shop and then look at pics of "weird and wacky mod jobs" on tbhp and choose the ugliest decals and you have a disaster.

this model will stay in dealer lots for months and go with huge discounts.
the ultimate sports taxi, indica xeta.

@Shuvc- the last i Checked SBI was offering an EMI per lakh of somewhere around Rs 2800 for a 3 year loan. I will stand corrected if it has indeed gone as high Rs 3333

The more we want the actual Sports Cars (Evo, GTR etc), the more we get the real Sports cars (Alto, Estilo, Xeta)

A Sporty car advertised with mileage figures as a highlight. LOL. Someone at Tata Motors has a wierd sense of humour.

Are ABS and air bags standard on this? Alloy wheels?

Ugly decals and ughlier rubber cladding do not a 'Sports' variant make.

ugh! why do manufacturers think that sport = stickers?
the chrome tip is already standard on xetas

I wonder if they will give the aluminum pedals seperately. I might be tempted

Since it is not advertised properly, people might start posting the images in the weird mods jobs section
Looks UGLY

I happened to see this car in real, all those stickers are an eyesore. And a xeta sports which is believable, for the numerous cab drivers...I say Why not? .
