TATA Manza or Logan. Nothing can beat them. My pick is Manza because its new and very much tuned compared to old models.

Ravi.

I think there is a rather large price difference between the cheapest and most expensive options. An Ikon is much cheaper than a Linea. But the Ikon does have a great back seat!

Not sure of this polls meaning or relevance. You have just picked one aspect of a car - back seat comfort and asked for a rating.

Its a no brainer - undoubtedly its Manza.

And Linea in Entry Level Sedan ? You shud be kidding. You gonna upset the Linea owners.

My vote goes for the Manza. The Linea is a notch above the other cars and cannot be called entry level sedan. The Manza has a huge rear seat and lots of legroom, so it is the best for being driven around, in terms of space. I am not however sure about the Manza's rear suspension. But if you are looking purely in terms of entry level, Manza it is.

My Vote is for the Manza. TATA may not make driver's cars. But they make some brilliant passenger's cars.

Manza all the way - Its built around the keywords - 'entry level sedan'. With legroom comparable to the big boys of C segment, it wins hands down.

Does the Indigo XL qualify? Its diesel and comes within the price range. Or is it discontinued?

If not, my vote goes for the Manza. Logan has one of the widest backseats i have seen in an entry level sedan, however they are were really flat. Vista had a very good rearbench, and manza should be better (?).

Without a doubt my vote goes for Manza. Acres of space in the rear , and good thigh support makes it a better bet!!

the manza as mentioned by me before ,is the poor mans limo
this is good as a chauffeur driven vehicle and nothing more.
personally i would not like to be seen driving an indigo my self but wouldn't mind driving the Linea or the desire for the matter of fact.
The indigo manza is a workhorse no matter what tata does ,they cannot change my view on the indigo.
about Logan fantastic car but again more of a workhorse.
Linea is the most stylish one of the lot without a doubt.

I guess the Manza has good rear legroom space here.
This thread's gonna hurt Linea owners feelings!

Well no hard feelings. I myself feel that the Linea is the best looking cars and my "admiration" for the car has made me include it even though it is the most expensive of the lot.
