why can't TATA bring Leather Interior similar to Vista 2nd Edition in Manza as an option?
The boot really gels with the car, so you can notice the waist line ends in boot not like dzire which ends above the boot.

Well regarding interior if you are willing to pay 1 lakh more for this car sure TATA will imporve the quality. But remember this is Indigo not Mercedes so do not expect Mercedes interior quality in cheap 5 -7 lakh car. Yes, for better interior you have to shell out more. India is still not interior friendly even for our home "How many of us take services from good 'Interior Designer'?". So my view is in sub 10 lakh segment do not bother much about interior.

And for your information very few people bother about intrior plastic quality. Something reviewer has to say so they always write this common line "Interior Plastic Quality is not Good".

What I feel when any design is finalized by any manufacturer they have the latest data in mind for that segment. It is applicable to all manufacturing segment. Sometimes it goes wrong but not always.

People who have to curse they buy a cddar buy same car and curse with respect to one or two segment higher cars.

@sidindica

Good info. Thank you.

Did you collect this from earlier posts or is it some source info?

Personally I did not think the New Honda City was a looker but it did well. Hope some of the similar magic rubs off the Manza as well
Had similar thought but hope its bad photography.

Segment first?

Interiors look good to me and dont forget how they will look at night
Will it be tuned similar to the Linea? Linear power delivery?

Manza is definitely going to eat a share of Dzire, Logan and may be a part of the premium hatch back segment.

The package seems to be good value for money and Tata’s are definitely learnt to put together better car. I am sure that the build quality will be far superior to the earlier versions of Indigo, or may be we should not compare it at all.

Let wait for the car to come in flesh and hope it will turn around Tata’s fortune in the entry level sedan market.

15" wheels on all variants is great. Ground clearance is still 165mm only?

Height Adjustable driver seat is available in Hatch Aura. In Manza it is given only from Aura option pack?

Manza Aqua with black bympers?? Vista Hatch has Body coloured bumper in its entry trim Terra!

ABS + EBD should be given as an option on all trim levels.

No alloy wheels even on top end? Strategy for Keeping the price not to exceed for an entry level sedan?

Side profile is good. Rear view with square boot, vertical tail lamp sends mixed feelings. NOT looking UGLY. Good effort by TATA.

nope, i think its the rub rail like moulding below the headlights.

Imho painting it kind of negates the point of its existence

May be bumper moulding = bumper protector at corners of bumpers?
Hopefully not entire bumper is black

Thanks Greenhorn. But often a simple black strip in such a place can change the looks.
