 You might have seen our earlier reports regarding the facelifted Indigo eCS and just as expected 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. The CR4 diesel engine has a max torque of 140 Nm at 1800-3000 rpm and delivers 25 kmpl (ARAI certified).

 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...

 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.Space available is superb.

What we like

Better equipped now and spacious

What we don't like

Not as premium as rivals

What we like

Looks better now

What we don't like

Basi shape is same


Engine

 The 69 bhp CR4 diesel engine has a max torque of 140 Nm at 1800-3000 rpm. Power delivery is decent and mid range is strong. It feels breathless in highways though.

What we like

Decent power in city

What we don't like

lacks punch in highways


Mileage

CNG Mileage 24.6 kmpl
Diesel Mileage 19.09 kmpl
Petrol Mileage 15.64 kmpl

 It delivers 25 kmpl (ARAI certified) which is frugal

CNG Variants
Emax CNG GLS 24.6 kmpl
Diesel Variants
LS (TDI) BS-III 19.09 kmpl
eLS BS IV 25 kmpl
LX (TDI) BS-III 19.09 kmpl
eLX BS IV 25 kmpl
eVX 25 kmpl
Petrol Variants
eGLS BS IV 15.64 kmpl

Safety

 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

What we like

Easy to drive

What we don't like

Not as fun as rivals


Comfort

 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.  This means that the ride is now improved a lot which is good news. Refinement is lacking though.

What we like

Rides well

What we don't like

Lacks refinement

INDIGO ECS -COMPARABLE SEDAN

By Posted on 19 Sep 13, 03:33 PM

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.

One to reckon with

By Romulus Gomes Posted on 21 Sep 13, 12:19 PM

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...

Pros Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,Average Interiors,

Hi I own this car as this is found to be most economical diesel sedan. This car gives you mileage of 20. have great space, and its maintenance cost is very low compared to other cars of the class. This car I will rather say the perfect for middle class whose expectations can be met with best economy. Interiors is not so pleasing but one can enjoy riding this car, I have ridden this car up to 150 kmph. overall its best car which I will recommend it to everybody who wants performance at best of the best price.

Good car with occasional glitches

By Anuj Posted on 24 Sep 13, 07:20 PM

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,

The overall performance of the car is good. Except for the usual "Tata service being on the higher side" problem, the car has not caused any serious troubles. Although I have not driven the car much (around 50000 kms), I got a wheel alignment problem which I believe is common with all cars (after 40000 kms). The interiors could have been better. Vibration is a constant issue with tata cars. Another problem is that the body frame on the driver side blocks vision while taking right turns. The stock headlights were extremely weak for night driving. Event the service center guys did not acknowledge it. I had to get an after market high powered headlight which is much better than stock headlights. Only once I faced the overheating issue. Performance wise, I like the response of car. Decent mileage on highways and city. Comfortable car to drive around. Looks dated.
