Congrats vcash for the Manza. Lately, many bhpians have gone for the Manza. The color selection although conservative looks good.
PS-The black parking sensors do not gel well with the grey bumper.

The smallest kid ever on board will be me. And I am on the wrong side of my twenties! As for the size, after the SX4 and the classic Benz, the Manza feels pretty managable.

I agree. Maybe in a few months, I will get them painted grey so that they match better.

Default Quick ownership update!

The Manza has now completed 10,000 km in a short span of 6 months.

I drove the car extensively in Jamshedpur, this time around and here are some of my observations:
1. Mileage is 13.5 with mixed-cycle driving and the AC on.
2. Quality issues on the inside apparent with the drivers seat shifting one notch every time one steps on the gas and power window holders have massive gaps and feel quite flimsy.
3. Turbo lag very apparent below 2500RPM but the car pulls nicely after that.
4. I absolutely love the rear seat! I did not feel tired after a 3 hour drive on a very undulating highway.

Overall, pretty happy with this purchase and I hope that the car continues to crunch miles with ease the way she has been doing for the past few months.

Here are some pictures:

Hi V Cash please share your experience in driving the first 1000 kms. What precautions did you take.

While I was not there to drive it in during the run in period, my driver was specifically instructed not to cross 2500rpm. Basically, care was taken not to over exert the turbo during the run in period. Mileage was low but then the long term benefits would outweigh this.

Other than that, no other precautions. Enjoy yours!!

Manza is best value for money car out there but i am turned off that it seems same as a Vista from the front and it looks like only the boot is added.

Then also at least Manza has a small bits different than the Vista like the chrome above the grill but Vento is totally the same as Polo :(

Manza's boot reminds me of cars in GTA4

Manza is just not a boot added version of Vista. There are lot more changes. Its is unlike Dzire which is just a boot added version of Swift. Please check out properly.As far i know you are the first person to make such an comment

I feel Tata could have done a better job with Manza's front, i did say that the difference is more than polo-vento or swift-dzire. But when you look at what Fiat did with punto-linea it leaves you wondering.

Besides the punto-linea job does not seem big at all they raised the grill area and increased the width along with some bits and waala.
