Of the list, I would say that the Dzire is actually the poorest handler. That rear end, coupled with a soft suspension, jumps out under hard braking and / or cornering. Remember, for most drivers out there, understeer is controllable. Oversteer isn't.

+1 to that
The Manza seemed more planted than the Dzire and for some reason the body roll also seemed less. I agree that the Manza may not be great for being thrown around corners, but some of us dont really have that requirement.

I noticed that the INDIGO name doesn't appear anywhere in the newspaper ad (or did I miss it?)

Is TATA positioning this as a separate car? Any idea on this?

Probably going the Zen Estilo way. From ZEN estilo->Zen Estilo->zen ESTILO->ESTILO

And Sid, the pictures arent half as bad as you make them out to be.

I agree the interior quality seems to have improved a lot. Two off topic points for sidindica:
- with your propensity for scoop pics, you shoudl consider a mobile with a better camera!
- I dont understand your location, care to explain?!!

Why can't they have 'Manza' or 'Elan' on the door scuff plates instead of typical 'TATA'? Anyways, Tata is improving day by day. Thinking if there is any particular reason behind the chocolate... + beige interiors.

The location is nothing but of course where I currently live. And, too much sun inside plus dark shade plus 3.2 MP cam cannot capture the best shot. Whereas the same mobile captured some nice boxster shots day before. No need to worry about my location, I am fit and fine.

Haven't driven any of these cars extensively but I felt Dzire's handling was much more agile than Manza.
How do I explain: Unwillingness of Manza to change direction. Like a heavy schoolbag being tied at the back..

loved the new color.
How i wish my Manza could had that color for the dashboard :(
Alloys seems to be the same one which use to come in Vista Anniversary edition.

The Manza in 'Tyrian Wine' color looks too good. And the interiors, from just the pics, seems to be much improved. Kudos to Tata, no other car can beat the Manza for the space, features and ride that it offers for the price.
