CS with MJD engine, nice 15" alloys, with a slightly redesigned sportier bumpers and sunroof. 7 L. isn't that a unique enough a car?
Would look great

I am sure there are many people waiting for a VFM sedan with MJD.
CS with MJD would possibly be hard to retain as VFM - Though I do agree that VFM with MJD is good to have.

The CS looks great and a Vist variat CS would look even better and with MJD would be the car to buy but i guess TATA are more likely to release a Vista platform Indigo with MJD then a CS variant. The earlier platform has started showing it's age, and though it was great at the time, it seems pointless to put new technology (read MJD) on an older platform while a newer one exists.

Yet Tata may just go ahead and do it if they can price it low enough (read make it VFM).

From the reactions to my comment seems there are enough takers, that would be great.

a CS on vista isnt possible as vista having longer wheelbase and CS was purely offered for shorter 4metre tax benifit, only if they offer this engine on current CS which is likely not to happen.
Indigo Vista is on cards and would be seen soon, this may be to clear current indigo CS stocks of TDi and Dicor engines.

I agree. CS with MJD is what many are looking for. CS is small outside, roomy inside, has a boot. What it lacks is a decent modern common rail engine. The DICOR is too coarse. QJD with CS would be good and probably sell well. Tata are missing out on the sedan segment while the dzire is racing ahead.

Hope tata wakes up.

Looks good, but the same old engines, extra stuff is definately worth 32k extra.

Why do Tata not give powered seats in the Vista, they should also make it default in the Indiva.

I guess airbags and ABS are not going to suddently come up on the older CS platform

In an Interview with Autocar Mr. Ratan Tata mentioned that he is not happy with the slow pace at which cars are being released / developed at Telco and wishes he could do things faster.

actually airbags and abs shouldnt be too hard, given the fact that they were available on the turbo DLX and the export indicas

This looks a really nice VFM package! If you can compromise on a little bit of quality that is!

Why didn't I think of that one, but you might actually have hit the ball on the nail.

Hehe, however much I dislike the way the Indigo looks, the CS does look kinda purposeful, its the best of the bunch by a wide margin.

However weird the updates are, they still make the car slightly better.

Also considering that the CS will be the only Indigo that will be available post the launch of the vista, it makes sense to upgrade it now.

Infact the CS is the perfect replacement for cabs all around the country, IMHO, tata should launch a version with a blue light inside and free stickering at dealer level with words like "borivili" "ghatkopar" etc!
