The car looks promising,and will definitely be a good car,and will also do good i the market.But will be plagued by Tata's infamous bad build quality!

I guess we are going to see an ugly rear profile here with those huge tail lights!

I hope I am wrong, looks huge and I specifically like the shape of the front windshield

I think built on the Vista platform build quality shouldnt be a problem. I hope they do enough to distinguish the front end from the existing Vista.

Default Wish you all success - Manza

Hope that the exterior of the car in as good as the looks of the interiors.Hope TATA wont make us guinea pigs anymore.Hope car will be trouble free from day one.I was once a part of their reasearch and development team during my Indica (1999) days.

If the car has good built quality and reliability it will be a great success.If properly equipped I think the car will be a threat to Linea,Dzire and even ANHC.But Linea will be the most vulnerable.FIAT should be cautious here.

Imagine a guy walking into TATA/FIAT dealership for a sedan.He will be canvassed for Manza rather than Linea.People will still continue buy the Dzire (and ANHC ) despite their shortcomings.

Check this out Manza - Look forward to a new level of indulgence ... Looks like it doesnt carry the ugly central console after all, going by the pictures in the page it looks more like a streamlined Sienna/Petra dash ... Not bad

Controls on the steering wheel in this price band, Impressive. Surprisingly, Tata's raising the stakes not on pricing alone. I don't think anyone can complain about the quality of the Vista, if the Manza keeps up the quality stakes, some pseudo sedans (aye, Dzire) and even the bigger labels (ANHC) are going to have tougher times.
Maybe people expecting a lot less fro Tata can fall in their favour and spring a suprise.

MANZA looks impressive. TATA is growing into a better looking car as the day passes. Hoping for a ABS,Climate control,Stability control in the top end Manza atleast.

Linea may feel the heat initially especially when it shares same engine with Manza. Bur as FIAT is already planning engine upgrades for Linea, there will be some breathing space between these two.
So, sooner the upgrades better for Linea.

I absolutely love the new look steering wheel. A giant leap for TATA indeed.
