I think he is talking about his own personal car which is 8K old with no failures and keeping his fingers crossed as any sane owner would do ? What may be alarming about that ?

One of the members in my society has purchased a red ECS - Petrol version, I must say i was very impressed with the cars exterior and interior looks,
This car can be a good option for people who would like to try a little mods like
1. Rear twin - fin spoiler
2. Underbody neons
3. Hood scoop
4. Projector Lamps
It should be great, it would to be too early to comment on the engine i beleive, but a couple of things it did not like is the rear tail lamp assembly (still similar to old one) and In Car entertainment - it looks very after market ..does not feel integrated with the decor

Question Re: The All New e-Series Indigo CS

I am planning to book Indigo CS eLX today. Concorde Motors is offering only mud flops and mats and 10k discount. But they are providing 18+30 months warranty.

But Prerana Motors is offering mud flops, mats, sunfilms, cover and remote locking with 10k discount. The catch is that I will have to purchase Insurance from them and warranty will be only 18+18 months. Even after repeated conversations they are not willing to provide 30 months extended warranty as advertised by TATA.

I am planning to book today evening as today is an auspicious day. So please advise which one should I go for?

Hi kadurRacer, if I were you, i would go to Concord & place the order with them, only because of the additional 12 months extended warranty (18+30 vrs 18+18). It would definitely buy me peace of mind.

Further, if I get the insurance done from myself, I guess I will be saving money, which I would put in the accessories.

I would have taken the extended warranty, and bought everything else on my own.

Question Re: The All New e-Series Indigo CS

cardeep & @cuboid: I have booked from Concorde and managed to convince SA to give me sunfilm and car cover as well.

One more question, people around me are advising me to buy insurance from the dealer for hassle free claims but I am getting a deal 4500 bucks cheaper outside(New India Assurance). I am confused, will it be so difficult to claim if I get the insurance from outside?

Also all the dealers in Bangalore are charging around Rs.5000 as handling charges for registration etc... none of the dealers were willing to give discount on this component. Is it a common practice?

Hi kadurRacer

Congratulations on the booking.

It is no problem if you go for cash less insurance from outside, but, only the benefit of monetary savings, & do not think that dealer should have problems with cooperating with the insurance co.

Moreover, issue of insurance claim will arise only in case of accident or major repairs. My only request is to hope for the best & ignore any negative feedback. Obviously, purchase of Motor Vehicle, House & children's are education are the biggest spending for any Indian household & when you commence any work with positive outlook the results will definitely be good.

My best wishes for your car ownership.

Move over Indica/Indigo eCS... the new mileage champion may be here soon. Refer the below link for report on Mazda's new engine that promised 30 kmpl, that too a petrol one, which is a 1.3L 84 bhp motor:

Now, a 30kmpl gasoline engine for the real world!

With Mazda planning to enter into Indian auto scene, we can expect this engine doing duty on Indian model (s).

Just found this article on www.bsmotoring.com website .

Tata motors has launched the new Indigo e-CS VX, which claims to have a fuel efficiency of 25kmpl for a diesel motor. The car now comes shod with new 14" alloys and better tyres to reduce rolling friction and increase FE. TML has reduced the weight of the car by 10kgs.
More details here.

This might be old news by now, but the eCS VX comes with ABS and alloys. It's the new top-end variant positioned above the LX.

Curiously, with the launch of eVX, Tata have reduced features in other variants. Now the eLX model does not have demister on rear windshield whereas eLS comes without the plastic cladding on doors as also the stone guard below the doors. External antenna has vanished too from all the models.

Happened to meet friend who is working for Tata Motors, got some inputs from him..

1) Indigo eCS with all new interiors. According to him interiors are really good. It is total revamp, no part is used from existing part bin.

2) All new exterior/interior for Indica/Vista. According to my friend it looks inspired from i20.

3) Manza CS (as we all know)
4) Nano Diesel testing still going on. (as we all know)
5) Indica XL (as we all know)
