Me too...

I wonder what fate awaits the Vista TDi
I believe that the Vista TDI will no longer be available in BS4 compliant metros.
After all how many Taxi-wallahs live in the heart of these cities. They live in the outskirts & can get the car registered from neighbouring cities which need not be BS-4 compliant.

Have Tatas stopped using the name Dicor on their cars? Even the new Safari doesn't carry the Dicor sticker IIRC.

Does the Fiat factory have enough capacity to produce more multijet engines, if Tata wants them for CS? I think not.

Does that mean Indigo XL, Indigo Marina will be phased out?

Nope, Tatas are still using Dicor name. Even the new safari has the Dicor written, but in place of the old sticker on sides at rear end, now you have a metallic badge right above the side lights in front. To me that looks much better than the sticker

Thanks Sid, any idea about the ARAI figures for the new e-series twins ?

What about the xeta? Are they making it to BS4 compliant as well?

I think the refreshed styling really works well for the exteriors. Also, the increase in price is minimal and the CS actually represents very good value for money.

What I'd be interested to know is whether the NVH levels are better or not, and how the car performs. If it does perform reasonably well, I would say that Mahindra's upcoming Logan Short (that's just a made up name) would be dead on arrival.

I know the reason for the interiors being still the same, but it really looks terrible, I sometimes wonder what the costs of tooling up for new interiors costs. As far as I know, plastic moulds shouldn't be very expensive.

Don't think so they are!! Also, I feel that Tatas are now more concentrating on vista and phasing out Xeta. It has done the work it was intended to. Continuing with it at low price would only cannibalize regular Indica.

Any thoughts!!

Is it only me or does anybody else feel that this is plain ugly - more specifically the long stalk in the middle. Seems to be crying "TOuch me Not".
Or is this the effect of the picture distortion.

If you are talking about the steering wheel, I agree, but if you are talking about the exteriors, I disagree . I think that the car looks good from the outside.

I don't know about DICOR but I have seen the old TDI engined Indigo beat Fiat engined Indigo Manza on highway by a considerable margin in both pick-up and top speed, to my surprise. Beats me how. Isn't MJD more advanced technically?

Depends on a lot of factors. Was there anyway to be sure that both the cars were trying to make a dash!! If not, then may be the Manza guy was just going on casually without the hurry to make it past the finish line first. It could even be that it may be a new car and he is taking real good care of her.

Or he may be thinking in his head - With great speed comes great responsibility
