Tata Motors gave new birth to its existing child, Tata Indigo, and christened it as Tata Manza. The luxury car, Tata Manza, has everything to woo the Indian customers. It has the all desirable features which declares a car luxurious. So, our team was very excited to have the fresh experience of Tata Manza. As we reached the showroom, Roshan Motors-Jaipur, there were lot of customers enquiring for the new launch. Some feeling it by touching and a few just getting technical and other details. The car is sure to fill the space vacated by Tata Indigo as Tata Motors is going to phase out the model. Only a few variants will be seen in market as a token. It is very clear by a birds eye view of the car that the new avatar is larger than the phasing out model. The dimension of the car is-length-4413 mm, width-1703 mm and height is 1550 mm. The maximum fuel tank capacity of Tata Indigo, Manza is 44 litres. The sales officers at the showroom showed us the interiors of the car. Tata Motors did intensive home work to design the interior of the vehicle. The front side of the, dashboard and front area of co-driver's seat, is a highly tech-flood area. It has 2-Din music system, in built bluetooth and advanced driver information system, it shows digital clock and fuel consumption, distance to empty and ambient temperature indicator, which provides each and every update about inner and outside area. Apart from these, the other features are audio controls on steering wheel, infrared remote for audio and USB playback. The critical rev indicator turns red when the driver hit the critical RPM. Ample legroom and headroom is carved at the both side-front and rear seat. The ergonomically designed height-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support and the tilt-adjustable power steering enable a better driving experience. A automatic illuminated deep glove box and electric controls for ORVMs and HVAC vents are unmatchable. For the extra comfort, rear seat is blessed with armrest that can have a cup like stuff. The Tata Manza boasts rear seat center armrest, rear power windows and one shot power window down movement at driver side. The eye-catching sedan, Tata Manza, designed in attractive two-tone beige interior colour scheme, illuminating ring around keyhole, bottle holder on floor console, vanity mirror and light on co-driver's sunvisor and storage tray and pockets . Now come out from the fairy world of Tata Manza and watch stunning work on exterior. Rear lamps are in new shape and the complete rear side look seems to be borrowed from Logan. In addition to this, height of the back is reduced as against Tata Indica Vista. Outer door handles, front and side rub rails are painted in body colour. Only the higher end variant is having electrically controlled outer rear view mirror. Same is the case of chrome inserts on rub rails and door handles. Chrome plated grilles are there in higher end variant of Tata Manza. A beep sound would be turn on if the seat belts are not used when driving. It is disappointing that any variant of the Manza sports alloy wheels. Tata Motors comes loaded with a host of advanced safety features that meet stringent international standards. Strong side-door intrusion beams cushion any impact, while the superior crash-tested cockpit design ensures optimal protection to all occupants. Other safety weapons are high mount LED stop lamp, load limiters on front seat belts, immobiliser, central locking, ABS, remote controlled keyless entry, dual front SRS airbags, retractor, pretensioners, child lock on rear doors and collapsible steering. Dual airbags and retractor, pretensioners and load limiters on front seat belts come in Tata Manza Aura Plus. Tata Manza is launched in four variants both in petrol (quaorjet) and diesel (safire) engine- Tata Manza Aqua, Tata Manza Aura, Tata Manza Aqua (ABS) and Tata Manza Aura Plus. The price tags of all these variants starts from Rs 4.8 lakh to 6.75 lakh. The models are available in different hues like breeze blue, dew white, grey noir, gold satin, infinity black, minimal grey and monarch red. The quaorjet diesel engine with a displacement of 1248cc churns a maximum power of 90 Ps at 4,000 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 200 Nm at 1750-3000 rpm. On the other hand, 1368cc petrol Safire engine generates same 90 Ps at 6,000 rpm while it develops 116 Nm at 4750 rpm. We, the team, already brought you the live coverage of Chevrolet Cruze.
