You ingested the engine? I am sure you meant -Put on ignition . On a serious note, everyone is complaining about how rough the petrol, and how smooth the diesel is. This is unusual.

Filters get clogged when exposed to dust-that's a fact and the statement that I made was a hypothesis-not a diagnosis. Usually, Tata cars have a great AC.

Diesel comes with belt drive for cam and a balancer shaft. This might be the reason for better NVH.

I was wondering if there is any provision (or a correct provisioning made) to fit my JBL rear speakers. Referring the image I find that there are no rear speakers though I understand that Harman is having excellent sound reproduction.

Hi Majumdarda, why do you want to fix additional speakers? There is no provision in the XZ variant. You can fix it in the rear parcel tray area using a wooden plank or place the speakers in the boot area using wooden box enclosure. I would advice you not to fix additional speakers since you may damage/misalign the dashboard panel during installation (factory finish will be lost) or even disturb the stock sound quality. Yes, the stock 6 speaker setup is excellent and more than adequate.

Just got an update that Tata has revised prices of the Tiago and they have been increased to the tune of 3,000 - 5,000 rupees, variant-to-variant.

Just spoke with the dealer (Aristo Motors GGN) on the increase in prices, very smartly tries to shrug away the discussion saying the increase is hardly Rs 500 .Anyways am going to the showroom tomorrow, will share the revised price list if its officially out.

OTH has anyone booked the car and incase yes, have you got any confirmation msg from TML?

Oops...that was certainly a typo...I meant ignited. It was indeed quite unusual that a diesel was far more refined than the petrol. The NVH levels were far more contained in the diesel compared to petrol cabin.

There are acceptable phrases and idioms which have an understood meaning. "Igniting the engine" doesn't mean anything other than setting it on fire. The comment was made in jest in any case.

Until this post of yours I assumed that you had been a victim of autocorrect.

This discussion if to be continued should be in another thread.

I wonder why there is no word on the number of bookings made on Tiago. Every other company is flaunting the same during the initial few months of their product release. e.g. Mahindra, Datsun, Maruti, Honda, etc.

We only got to know that there were more than 1,00,000 inquiries. What I am interested to know is how many bookings are made till date. Anyone with any numbers?

Sales figures don't seem too convincing. Will need to watch out for a few more months.

Average delivery time seems to 4-6 weeks. Either production is still an issue (workforce problem) or this is yet another below average market response for a Tata product. I hope its the former, they do deserve a second chance.

Did anyone notice any shade difference between the body panels and the door handles for the white Tiago? Or is it just me?
Went to the Tata showroom after testing out the Grand i10
Boy oh boy! Tata is nearly there in terms of quality albeit the rubber beadings are atrociously cheap and don't do any justice to the rest of the car.
The petrol engine lacked refinement and felt more like a diesel. The Grand i10's refinement spoiled me! My dad went on to say that it was worse than most diesels he's driven! Didn't test drive the diesel though but just turned on the ignition and found it much much smoother.
Overall a capable car but I feel showroom experience is the deal breaker
