Editorial Test Drive Review of Tata Indigo eCS
You might have seen our earlier reports regarding the facelifted Indigo eCS and just as expected it has been revealed. The Indigo eCS has been facing tough competition from the Maruti Dzire and more recently the Honda Amaze. The eCS in its last generation was getting old and lacked the features and premium feeling of its rivals. The new one however is a big improvement in many areas but the one most apparent is in its looks. The changes to the 2013 eCS include new front bumper, smoked headlamps and a new grille. There is also a generous dose of chrome with a chrome strip at the rear. We like the headlamps which add aggressiveness to the styling and you canot miss the amount of chrome up front to give it a more premium look. You will also notice the new 14 inch wheels. Inside the new eCS gets a new instrument panel and new upholstery which makes the cabin even more airy than ever. There are more beige bits in the cabin which lifts the cabin ambience for sure. You will also notice that the odd three spoke steering is gone replaced by a more classy four spoke one. There is a new audio system and Bluetooth also. The eCS might have a very spacious and airy feel cabin (for its size) but as far as the design and quality goes, it finds it hard to match up to a similar priced hatchback. Step inside and the first thing that strikes you is the lack of any cubby holes for your wallet, cell phones and other knick knacks. The Indigo eCS might be the smallest sedan in the world but it does have a good enough boot for weekend trips which has more space than most hatchbacks in this price point - all 380 litres of it! The 69 bhp CR4 diesel engine has a max torque of 140 Nm at 1800-3000 rpm and delivers 25 kmpl (ARAI certified). It has got new Duo Float Suspension which enhances load distribution and a new NVH package. The new cable linkage gearbox also works well and is light. The updates have helped the Indigo eCS a lot and it is much better value for money now though we have to say that competition is quite tough. For a detailed analysis read below...
Pros: Improved looks, Spacious
Cons: Not fun to drive, Quality can be better

There is some roll and it does not feel nippy. Steering is decent but it is nowhere as much fun as the Maruti Dzire or as agile as the Honda Amaze

Pros Great Interiors,Comfort,spacious interiors, enough leg rooms, good boot space for long journey, comfortable drive.
Cons ,AIR CONDITION IS NOT MUCH SATISFACTORY, COLOR OPTIONS ARE LIMITED.
Tata Indigo Ecs-VX4 with CR4 Engine is good in many aspects such as smooth driving, having advanced braking system ABS, much space in interiors providing comfort to the passengers. Much to be appreciated is the boot space of its class with 380 L . Fuel effeciency is yet to be checked and the negative side of it is rubber beadings are not up to the mark and aircondition working is very poor and to should get improved. But overall satisfied with the vehicle in the sedan class value wise also.

Pros Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,
Cons Average Looks,
The Tata Indigo eCS, rightly named as the Compact Sedan... It has all the comforts and looks of a sedan at the same time it carries the price tag of a hatchback... Tata has managed to crack the equation of the mileage issue faced by one and all. Even at high speeds the vehicle attains a rock solid grip on the road. The boot space allows enough room for an overnite camping trip. All in all a definate thumbs up for someone who bears the concrete as well as the wilderness jungle...
