congrats Ilango, manza is indeed a great vehicle IMO and a great VFM also.So MANZA LOVERS are increasing,thats great.I have booked TATA MANZA SAFFIRE Aura(ABS).Excited, going for the white, paying 5000/- extra for that
Congtrats illango for the ride!!
I must say that day 30/07/10(delivery day) ,you will remeber for life time.
Now exact one year before; ie on 30/07/09 I got the delivery of my Pulsar 180 UG4!!
So our rides share same birth dates(delivery dates) but different years!!
Yep dhaya , but the ac switches are bad , can be found only on close look , Or is that the finish on them , i feel they are so brittle.
So here goes my first report.
Comparing the car with swift
Comparing the two different car means comparing the engines in different segment. This has a slightest higher bhp than swift , but justified by its weight I have revved a swift but not this manza , new one hehe
But my adrenaline will not stop even if i do! Did a top of just 100 kmph of this 130 kmph odo. but i was not quick. the refinement and engine response were same on both cars.
The pick up was almost similar to a swift with 4 on board. Handling is also good , But compared to swift this has a body roll .Yes you can feel it easily. During some overtake , i was hard on throttle . the response and pick up was good and quick . you can confidently overtake at narrowest possible place. have driven punto but not test driven it.
Comparing the car with my indigo marina.
Totally different engines , Initial response were felt same (remember i have tricked my diesel pump in marina) , but if i rev hard this manza , the tdi will be behind for sure. Reaching the speeds were quick in manza. As said there was no noticeable body roll in marina , but in manza i can find them .
same way spacious as marina- perfect replacement .
The things that i dint find easy was ,
there is no space to left of clutch pedal . i am used to remove my foot from it by going left , not by pulling toward us , hope you got me and most of you are same.(pic added) . the centre console plastic is disturbing .In marina there was hollow space like at rear most of console. i always drive with shoes and sandals . never ever in bare foot
The right side rear view mirror obstruct most of view , especially during taking the turn. A pillar plus this mirror makes things worst.
Hope i am brief about the manza , only after some 5000 kms or so high speeds will be done my me
Crisp review Ilango. Am sure the Manza will even perform more but the high stance means the body roll is sure to be more! The plastic quality might be poor but the interiors are surely better than even my Safari!
So Manza does not have a dead pedal. I think most of the TATA cars don have it.
I told you not to carry 7 people in a Vista, and now that you've got yourself your Manza, you carry 7! :shock:Ada paavi, How did you manage to carry so many people in one car? Put some of them in the boot?
