everything looks fine but the exterior. FOr me Silver (first photo) looks so bad.


But again, if there are buyers for DZIRE definately there will be buyers for Manza as well!

Very good pricing

Interiors look quite impressive for a TATA. I would say better than Punto/Linea. The plastics seem to have been finished well. Only a closer look can say. Hope they hold together and age well.

I second that.
Just can wait to feel those. (then I would really feel bad for Linea if they turn out better)

Good Pic notjustshravan!
I have one doubt is the rear door opening is limited, because in pictures i can see front door opened very well and rear has opened less compared to the front
I think Alloy wheels are optional can any one confirm?

OMG

Very un-TATA' ish car.

Superb, i am wondering where have all those Tacky unfinished plastic gone,and also the Gaps and crevices, where are the flaws. Though its actually not the best available, but TATA's have gone way ahead with the MANZA

And the MANZA is well built and very proportional. Nothing untidy as the Fugly D'zire.

Why compare it with D'zire, Manza is definitely ready to catch up with the Ikons/Lancers/Aveos/Sx4's/Honda City's and many other sedans.

Post Superb Pics!

From these details pics, it's very evident that Tata are always improving their quality and now, have done a very good job on the Manza. Fit and finish definitely looks good on these pics. My belief is it would be better when viewed in flesh, as with lot of cars.

Kudos to Tata and good wishes to them for Manza to be a success.

Off Topic: Credit to the photos should also go to Ritesh Madhok and if I'm not wrong, isnt there a Tarun madhok or Ritesh Madhok himself on the forum? I'm sure a family member of Ritesh Madhok is present in this forum [brother of his, I am guessing].

Default super car dull style

having seen all the photos
the only view where it looks cool is from the side
I feel that tata being owners of Jaguar/Landrover and all should also concentrate on the style factor too
especially the front grille and the boot
they seem to be etched with the tata designers, who are not interested in changing them

Great pictures guys. Seems VERY spacious, VERY airy. Should be very very comfortable for folks inside the car!

Seriously, how many think ppl will prefer Linea over Manza? I have a feeling that the features and the space will blow them over if they see the cars side by side.

Looks respectable, but have they hired korean designers ?
The car seems a bit hyundai-ish in styling. But for a change looks good.

Interesting styling. It definitely is a step up compared to the Indigo but overall, its a rather strange looking car. But the interiors look fantastic!! Well equipped and spacious too.

Well its not that a customer would walk into a showroom and then choose the car to buy. He/she would have something in mind when he walks into a Tata Fiat dealership.

In anycase the original poster said that the salesman would "cajole" the customer into buying one and hence my reply.

This gives a very clear indication of which segment they're targeting: taxi fleets. High mileage is great, while the warranty should translate to lower maintenance costs in the first two years... looks like the Fiestas and aging Ikons in the taxi fleets are going to retire soon!

Wise point. Come to think of it, why do people buy the Dzire:

Well priced. Check
1.3 Diesel. Check
Trust worthy brand. Check (though Tata hasnt had nowhere near the long term quality of a Maruti)
Does the job without offending in any serious way. Check (if this Tata doesn't have serious niggles).

Lets wait and watch the sales numbers over the coming year.

If the pictures are anything to go by, I have to say that the interior quality seems to be a giant step ahead of regular Tata fare. Will reserve final comment before checking her out in person.

You'd be VERY surprised at the amount of cross-shopping within the same showroom.

oh! my... this looks so luxurious in the photos for the price that we need to pay! I very much liked what I saw from the front. Interiors look good and spacious too. The side profile and back are ok types and reminds me of old sedans. Somehow I always liked the smallish box in the back ala Civic. Hopefully we will see one such car from Tata too in near future. For sure I will buy one new Tata car 10 years down the line. Future is so promising.
