There are people who are having a second thought about buying the Fiesta TDCI so they may just change their mind even after walking into the showroom

Default Super car, Very well priced. Looks? Hmm

To be quite honest I was hoping for something better in the exterior design. The Manza may not be a Vista-with-a-boot, but she looks like it.

Interiors look amazing! The length of the seat (lower bits, the ones we sit on) both front and rear is quite large, good under thigh support for most people, and adjustable height in front taking care of things for taller people, from the looks of it. Pretty well equipped, and I think the base Aura with ABS should be the most VFM option (thoughts?).

Still waiting for someone to TD the petrol, as the power and torque peaks are pretty high up in the rev range. Wonder how driveable she'd be in traffic. Who knows, I'm tempted to drop by our friendly neighbourhood TATA showroom this weekend!

On the whole: Congratulations, TATA. In the words of Hancock: Good job!

Does anybody know if they going to be launching it in Auto tranmission as well in near future?
Overall the car looks great and I think it would be value for money. The only thing that's bothering me is the small tire size..rest is all good.

Absolutely not, only Indians are hired for boot job

From the pics atleast i think im kinda able to digest the looks of Manza, Dzire is still undigested! I would like to know if the gearbox is rubbery or atleast has it been improved compared to previous gen Indigo?

Looks like a good car. But did not look the boot design. looks like LOGAN boot style from one of the pics. Could have done a better job in designing a stylish boot to make it a perfect car

Awesome launch.. I think now that the car is officially out, other manufacturers will be seen working overtime. I think people will receive this car very well. Hope everyones visited the officially launched Manza website : Indigo Manza

no suman, that's not the case - perhaps a popular rumor among non-TATA owners. engines may not be honda-smooth, but they're perfectly reliable and functional for longer years than the rest of the car would hold up.
