This mode if pitched below Dzire and Amaza it can still generate some decent numbers for the company, but with the current prices which are hovering close to Dzire and Etios it's just digging it's own grave.
Off late Etios has stormed in good numbers in the taxi segment, may be Tata's want to win back some of those customer's through this face lift, i have a feeling that they will do some revision to the pricing as well.
Launched at the 2008 Auto Expo as India’s first sub-4m sedan, the Tata Indigo eCS has lost its sheen and it badly needs an upgrade.
The test mule does not carry any camouflage, but then there is nothing that has changed significantly to be hidden.
The front grill now gets new detailing, it gets a dash of chrome which encloses the Tata logo. The front bumper is revised and the fog lamps are now enclosed within new body colored housings. The headlamps now have a smoked effect.
The updated car gets a new set of alloy wheels and a dual tone bumper is the highlight of the rear. The rest of the exterior remains the same. We expect mild improvements to be made to the interior.
Powertrain options however are likely to remain the same. The Indigo eCS is powered by a 1.2 litre 65 bhp petrol and a 1.4 litre 70 bhp diesel engine. The latter’s fuel efficiency is rated at 25kmpl by ARAI.
A lot is happening in the sub four metre space. The Honda Amaze has just landed while the Mahindra Verito Vibe is on its way in the following weeks. The facelift for the Tata Indigo eCS at this juncture seems to be a sensible move.
