Editorial Test Drive Review of Tata Manza

The Tata Manza was launched in 2009, but after a long time it was given a face-lift. The changes were more for looks and features. In design terms, the Manza has chrome on the front grill and premium looking chrome on the door handles which makes the care look more appealing. The rear of the car looks clean and uncluttered with its well proportioned neutral design. The car has good build quality compared to the previous generation cars from the Tata stable. Inside, the Manza has dual-tone interiors and the well finished plastic parts and colors lend it an airy feel. The seats have comfortable padding and the interiors are extremely spacious. When you compare it to its competitors the interior quality seems to be much better as well.

It has class leading rear legroom despite the generous amount of seat-travel for the front passengers. The top end variant of the new Tata Manza series, the Tata Manza Elan, comes with a host of premium features like dual tone alloy wheels, burgundy & beige interiors, chrome garnished bottom weather strip, fog lamps, and an all new premium and exclusive Tyrian wine color. Among other high-tech features, the Tata Manza Elan also has 'follow me home headlamps' which stay on for one minute after the car is switched off and can be extended by 30 seconds more by just pressing the lock key again. Led by customer insight, yet another unique feature is the 'delayed power window' even if the windows are left open and the key removed from ignition, they can be rolled up by just pressing the power window switch.

The diesel variant sports a 1.3 liter Fiat MJD producing 89 BHP at 4000 RPM and 200 NM of Torque at 1750 RPM. It gives an excellent fuel economy of 21 kmpl as certified by ARAI.  The petrol variant is a 1.4 liter engine producing 89 BHP at 6000 RPM and 116 NM of torque at 4750 RPM. The petrol engine delivers excellent fuel economy of 14.5 kmpl as certified by ARAI. The diesel is a strong performer though theer is some turbo-lag but it is well contained. Tata Manza has the upper hand here as far as ride quality and comfort are concerned. Manza is well built and capable of handling the worst of the Indian road conditions. Tata Manza brings you well designed and extremely roomy interiors with excellent amount of interior features.

The current (ex-showroom Delhi) price for Tata Manza Petrol range starts from 5.7 lakhs for the base variant Manza Aura Safire and the top variant petrol Manza Elan Safire is priced at 7.1 lakhs. The diesel base variant starts from 6.4lakhs for the Manza Aura Quadrajet and top variant Manza Elan Quadrajet is priced at 8.3 lakhs. Tata Manza is strong performer in this segment owing to its pricing and brings a very respectable level of kit with it and delivers exceptional fuel economy. Manza brings excellent features making it a car which meets your requirements and quite hard to resist. Tata has been working hard towards improving its service network and quality too.  For a detailed analysis read below.

The Tata Manza has got awesome ride and handling. The car swallows potholes like snacks and handles remarkably well for a Tata along with good NVH readings. The steering is light and direct, good for city use but at the same time does not feel as disconnects as in an Aveo or even the Dzire.

does not even deserve to be sold in Indian market. My recommendation is to stay away from this car as far as
