Pros Getting Mileage of 16KMPL(50% City 50% Highway), No Noise, Ingressegrees is good
Cons Average Door Handles, Paint quality
Bought Auro Quadrajet and done 600 Kms on Highway and City equally . I am getting 15.9 KMPL. The suspension is excellent. Noise Level is very low. Rear legroom is beyond compare with good ingressegress. Need to Respect Speed breakers unlike Indigo CS. It scrapes the breaker at high speeds. A friend of mine compared the rear seat to that of the train, which i agree it is very wide and good thigh support.

Pros Good looking, fantastic mileage, very comforatable, very low sound level and extremely economical
Cons Music sysstem could have been better with DVDVCD player
I booked Manza Petrol three days after launch on 17th October and got it on 30th November 2009 on my daughter's birthday. Till today I have drive 2000 KM without any trouble. Mileage is about 15 KML in city and about 17 KML on highway. I am extremely happy to have it. I was using Maruti Alto since five years and was thinking to buy Swift Desire but thanks to TATA who gave me such a wonderful car well within my budget. For a family of four its a specious and very economical car. We feel very happy and proud for our Manza.

Pros Good looks, good mileage but noise in cabin.
Cons good interiors, comfortable , good boot space.
I have purchased TATA INDIGO MANZA QUADRAJET+ from chandigarh. All my wishes to drive a big car goes away when I drive it. There is noise in the cabin which start irritating me within 2days of driving. Iam having Maruti Dezire which is sound proof in the cabin. There is some abnormal noise in the cabin which I think is noise of gears. I only saw its boot space and good features inside but didnt take this noise seriously. Now I think I have mistaken to buy this vehicle. I would advise other people to compare this noise in cabin with other cars of this segment while purchasing TATA MANZA. TEJINDER SINGH.
