Saw the new eGLX model at Kulathunkal Motors in Trivandrum today. It was a silver color car. It does have more presence than the old models.

I asked the sales exec, and he confirmed that the new BS4 models would be the only ones equipped with the new grille, lights and interiors.

The difference between the LX TDi and the eLX is roughly 50K, putting the eLX on-road price at under 5.7 lacs. For that price, you get power windows all around, Bluetooth enabled music system, rear defogger, chrome trim on mirrors and cloth upholstery.

IMO, the eLS is better value, since it somes with power windows at front, and the rest of the stuff you can live without, like the music system. It will be around 5.4 lacs on-road. I calculated that from the ex-showroom price at the Tata Motors site + 6% tax + 15K insurance + 5.5K 30 months ext. warranty.

Didn't ask for the prices of the petrol version, as I wasn't interested. The CR4 diesel model isn't at the showrooms yet. The lone silver eGLX had only come in that day, and it was the only one they had. Pics attached show the new model alongside my M800 and a Getz. Sorry for the horrible quality - taken using my old Nokia. On the bright side - no need to hide the reg numbers!

Hi vivekgk

So now you had an encounter with the car. Hope you liked the interiors as you liked the exterior (presence) of the car. Please let us have your opinion when you test drive the diesel.

ARAI figures getting a bit too optimistic these days? Indigo e-CS claims 23 kmpl!

Tata Motors launches the all-new Tata Indigo e-CS, the most fuel efficient sedan in the country

Tata Motors today commercially launched its all new Tata Indigo e-CS, the most fuel-efficient sedan in the country, with a host of exciting features. Built on the existing Tata Indigo platform, the Tata Indigo e-CS succeeds the highly successful Tata Indigo CS, the most compact sedan in the world, which became a best seller in the first year of its launch in 2008, and opened up a completely new market for upwardly mobile young professionals.

The Indigo CS has dominated the entry mid-size segment in the country for almost 2 years with its proposition of being the most compact sedan in the market. It has been appreciated for its classy styling as much as the great value proposition that it offers at an unbeatable price to a sedan customer.

If the Indigo CS was the most compact sedan in the world, the Indigo e-CS has set a fresh benchmark by also becoming the most fuel efficient sedan in the country. Sporting an all new 1.4 litre CR4 Common Rail Diesel engine, the e-CS offers an ARAI approved mileage of 23.03 kmpl, which is the highest for any sedan currently available in the country. It is also available with the 1.2 litre MPFI petrol engine to provide customers with a wider choice. The refinement in both the engines results in a more enjoyable driving experience, along with the seating comfort that the Indigo CS is known for. Both these engines are compliant with BS4 emission norms currently applicable in 13 cities in India.

The Indigo e-CS also gets a fresh new look on the exteriors with a new satin finish front grill, new headlamps, and ORVM with blinkers. This coupled with body coloured bumpers and chrome inserts on the rub rails endows the e-CS with head turning looks.

The dual tone beige interiors of the fabric and the dashboard create a plush feel. With a view to appealing to the youth, the Indigo e-CS comes equipped with a Bluetooth enabled music system and electrical controls for ORVMs. This is in addition to the AC, power steering and power windows which were available in the earlier Indigo CS as well.

The car comes with a warranty of 18 months for an unlimited no. of kilometres, amongst the best in the industry, and will be available in a range of 4 colours through 239 dealerships across 412 towns and cities in the country. The car is priced at Rs 4.07 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the MPFI petrol base eGLS version going upto Rs 5.13 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the top-end eLX version of the CR4 diesel.

Called up the Concorde Motors, they are yet to get the test drive vehicle for the new CR4 engine. As per the OTR at BLR is around 6.21L including the extended warranty. But they will offer the free insurance and few other discounts if bargain well.

Will update if I could manage a test drive

Thanks

Default Indigo CS claims as most fuel efficient in India

Just read this article

Tata Indigo e-CS launched as the most fuel efficient sedan in India - News - Zigwheels

Looks like Tata want to en-cash the old Indigo more. I can still see lots of new Indigo CS on road. With this new claim i guess it will again do well. Really VFM car. Interiors also looks good. it looks good with rear spoiler, alloy wheels. I guess it is a competitor for all small cars than entry level sedans like Manza, Ikon & Dzire.

It is a really a very practicle option in terms of VFM and space. You have to live with the perfomance and the efficiency of a Tata vehicle.

It is a sedan for the price of a hatch! not sure abou the efficiency claims though! seem like a ploy to clear the stocks to make way for the Vista based CS version!

It is the enxt car to start the price war! It starts from just 4.07 lakhs and look at the diesel's price 5.1 is just going after all the hatchbacks in the country! 23km/l is an awesome economy figure for this car as well. Tata has another winner on its hands

Although I am not entirely sure but I think the front grill looks photoshopped ?!?

Plus, seems like they have used a steering wheel from their 407 range
It's huge!

Looking at the price, I am sure this is going to be a great success. Specially in the taxi market.

Vista measures about 3.8 meters already and so it's impossible to make a sub-4-meter sedan out of it unless you reduce the wheelbase and make substantial other changes. At 2470 MM, Vista's wheelbase already exceeds that of Indigo CS (2450 MM).
