Congratulations!! Manza is a very good deal and i rate this car better than Dzire and Logan. Good to know you went for the variant with ABS, once you've bought a ABS equipped car you'll always ask for ABS in your future buys. Please post detailed long term review and lot of pictures too.

Default Shut Lines

To me it seems that the car looks better in flesh than the pictures suggest, but then, looks are always debatable. I won't even go into the debate of how well this compares in it's segment, what I do wish to draw some attention to is the "quality" of fit and finish.

Now, I agree that I cannot judge that completely by looking at the pictures, what I can say is that the shut-lines seem to be uniform and precise. Something that I feel proud about, the progression that Tata has made in each generation of it's automobile products. I can vouch for the fact that the shut-lines are comparable to most cars currently available in India

AFAIK, Manza is manufactured at the TATA-FIAT plant in Ranjangaon. Fit and finish seems to be the best in a TATA car yet!

+1 to that. Anyway, vijoy, can you please give more details on how you say the temp display works properly? just curious, did you compare the temp displayed to some other source?

While driving the car from showroom to home I did fiddle with AC controls and even though did not actually compare with sources, did see the temp vary between 25 and 31 inline with the changes I was doing.

@rite2shree - Yeah, had booked Monarch Red based on the first snaps on motoroids. Satin gold was my second choice since lighter color would be easier to maintain and it would also give an up-market look. Autofin had two demo cars in Monarch red and after looking them in flesh, felt that satin gold was better looking...but again its my personal impression only. Hope you do get your color of choice.
Manipal is a a nice place to be. While working in B'lore I did visit the udupi-kundapura area many times on weekend trips with friends and even dreamt of settling down in kundapur with the unexplored beach streching along the highway.

Congratulation. Please provide initial review of the car and some snapshots. Much talked of this new model would have lot of curiosity on this forum.

wow, car looks good and tata surely have come leaps ahead till now with manza, paint finish is superb and surely can compete with many cars in this segment.Hope tata also improves their *** department in may cities and dealers where people have complained.
Vijay, how are the door handles inside and outside, while i checked at showroom, they felt loose and shabby, infact i felt my indica V2's grab handle much better fitted then manza, maybe display one was faulty, what's your inpust do share.

Congrats Vijay for your vise decision of Manza.
I personally like manza over the dezire, as it looks fresh at least.
Car looks so massive from the bird eye view.

Enjoy the new drive..

If I'm not mistaken, the temperature display will indicate the temperature outside the car, not inside.
