The psyche of the Indian buyer. No one will buy an Indigo which primarily is meant for VFM (and has very well proved itself to be) for a price tag of over 6 lacs even though its packed with all the goodies. Tell me how many LXs sell compared to the LSs. I find a very few of them in comparision to the LS trims.

dont get it otherwise.. just my thought.
i wonder that most indians have decided that criticising Tata Motors is their birthright. No matter what it does most xbhpians find a way to criticise. If the mods of the GSX were made to a car of a foreign manufacturer, most would appreciate them greatly. but just because tata is indian, criticise it....pathetic.......

Thats pretty classy if you ask me. Indigo has not lost its VFM tag yet,because, at the price, what car offers you this?

Hi, I saw SX in Concorde showroom in Hyderabad, I have one very nice looking brochure as well..I will try and see if I can scan it.

U got to look at it to beleive it..though I think removing the TFT and VCD player and leather seat with PUC would make it very price competative as well..something close to 6.4 and that would be a killer

It just looks amazing. Just perfect if the price hike is around 75k as Steeroid mentioned. A good diesel engine, great economy and all the luxury for the rupee u spend. What else you want!

I would really prefer having Airbags and ABS. Even though personally I am really happy with the way the car handles currently but this will be the real value for a really well made vehicle!!

I showed these pics to my dad and he was mighty impressed. However we had bought an Indigo GLS just last year, so no chance of me getting to drive that thing. Is there a Marina SX offered?

Indigo LX costs 522 in NCR ex showroom. So i guess this would be <6 on road after the 25K dealer discount + 5% finance payout. Anyways i think i see fogs in the pic. Are the fog lamps the same as that of indica or different? When i went to the showroom the guy told me that the headlight clear lamp glass is even better in the TDI and is extra clear. Did you see any difference. It definately looks cleaner. Any TDi owner you know can verify that perhaps?
