Tata Indica was the first hatchback to roll out of the Tata Motors assembly line in India. Born in the year 1998, the hatch back was the partially designed by the company and was offered in both Petrol as well as Diesel variants. These engines were stripped down derivations of the SUVs and pickups sold by the company during that period. The car was face lifted after a gap of few years in 2004. Along with minor facelifts, the car also underwent major changes under the hood which included turbo charged diesel engine, MPFi Petrol heart coupled with some refinement. Time went by, and the hatchback segment was filled with modern cars which offered better value at great prices. So to cope up with the competition, Tata motors launched Indica Vista in August 2008 which was an all new car and much ahead of the regular Indica(then V2).
Lately, Tata Motors decided to give a new lease of life to their Old horse Indica which now comes with eV2 badging. The Automotive India tested the car to see whether this old is still gold.
