Yeah. My apologies. I realised that as soon as I hit submit. :P

Wonder how it'll handle. Tata's on a roll.

Its not surprising to see the Manza loaded with features. Also say if Manza and Linea together sell about 4500-5000 units, its still better for FIAT for the reason stated above.

Lets wait and see how these two cars perform for the next few months.

Yep but it is a manufacturing agreement not a design agreement. (Neither body design nor engine design.) Fiat would use TATA's established ancillary vendors, and hence the good or bad quality of interiors which are seen in both their cars.

Both companies are fee to manufactre cars else where as well as to use the specific plant where they have a JV.

Fiats are 100% marketed by TATA on the other hand but the vice-versa is not true.

Vista is manufactured else where.

Finally Tata is coming down to earth from Heaven... The site quality and the teaser standard tell something about that....

But the car pictures look good, features a plus.. Lets see the build quality and road performance.. after that only go for that guys.. because the cheap plastics will come out and start rattle only when the car starts running

Seems like aggressive pricing from Tata! Makes the top end diesel approximately Rs. 170,000 cheaper OTR Mumbai as compared to the Linea

Looks like we are getting a taste of the long wait times to be expected for this car. It's already 5 PM and no signs of launch. I have been on and off the site expecting some news on the launch for the whole day today.

It is certainly more car per car.

IMHO it will affect a lot of cars not just sedans but a lot of hatchbacks also.

Excellent pricing. So its 5K cheaper than DeZire for the top end variant - has a much more powerful engine (90ps vs 75ps), more features (bluetooth etc) and more space. Needless to say it looks better than DeZire!

hope Tata got the quality part right.
