 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...

Tata Indigo eCS Picture

 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


Loan

Available EMI options
(For 60 months with interest rate of 10.5% and down payment of ₹ 48,593)

Only one word "WOW!!!!!!!"

By Aditya Sarkar Posted on 19 Apr 09, 12:14 AM

Pros Only one word "WOW!!!!!!!"

Cons Delete this space

Iam having Tata Indigo CS LS TDI, i bought it just 2 months ago. telling frankly i was in favour of buying Swift Desire, but once i thaught of taking round in all the showrooms of Maruti, Tata, Hundai Ford Etc.. My budjet was 4 to 4.5 Lacs. my final choice was between a) Maruti Swift Desire & b) Tata indigo CS I started comparing both & find following advantages of Indogo CS over Swift Desire. 1) LOW PRICE (more than 1.5 lac lower in Diseal version) 2) SHORTER DELIVERY PERIOD. 3) GOOD LOOKS (compare to frogy look of swift) 4) BETTER MILEAGE 5) BETTER REAR SEATING SPACE 6) BETTER BOOT SPACE So finally decided to buy Tata Indigo CS. A COMPLETE MIDDILE CLASS PREMIUM CAR. Its the chepest seden car in india. If your budjet is low and u want to buy seden than close your eyes and buy it. it gives value for your money.

TATA Indigo DICIOR CS LS

By Bunty Bhatia Posted on 17 Nov 08, 02:17 AM

Pros Cost effective, fuel efficient (if diesel)

Cons Shabby built, teething issues with electricals

We bought the TATA Indigo CS DICOR LS on 21 October. There are other variants in the CS class itslef, but we found the DICOR better as it was smoother and more effecient than the ordinary TDI version. The car's first long drive on the delivery day was to BIAL. My father was leaving abroad, so we had to drop him to the airport in the same car, I couldnt believe the performance of the car. It easily touched 120kmph and I was in the front seat sitting beside the driver, I just couldnt realise. It is smooth as well. The car did extremely well and I am glad that TATA Motors have developed such a great car with such good Engine. Its a perfect value for money. Nobody in India gives you such value for money car. It has some teething issues like the fit and finish, you can notice it with bare eyes, especially the interiors, but if you are ready to spend something extra for the interiors then you dont have to bother about it. The one thing that seems to be strong enough is the engine, no doubt about that. The dealer was Prerana Motors on Hosur Road in Bangalore. I rated their service as very satisfactory, but not excellent. If you want your first car to be a sedan, then this is the car I would recommend you to buy. I wont compare this car with others, because other cars' are not worth comapring, they might be very good with interiors, but they are expensive at the same time. The specification of the car is also good. Since our model is LS and now even the LX model has been launched, you can go for it, its fully loaded. This car also seats 5 luxuriously but the 6th passenger can be squeezed in but I am sure that he too will be comfortable. If anyone tells you that this brand is better than this or that, dont bother, take a test drive then make note. Also, if you are a budget buyer, this is the right car. Wish you good luck.

Pick indigo

By Harman Baweja Posted on 14 Oct 08, 05:58 PM

Pros best sedan for keep moving

Cons higher price as compared to swift-Desire(petrol)

In the auto buyers mind their is certain presence of swift-desire. averything is compared to desire and the only factors that works is swift's comparatively low price

Worth a buy

By Shraavan Poorvabhadra Posted on 15 Nov 08, 10:50 PM

Pros Style, Space, Mileage

Cons Compromise on finishing

INDIGO CS is the best car in the price and for people who don't want to be common(having small car). Its giving me a mileage of 13.5 - 14 Kmpl on Delhi roads with 60% time driven with Ac on. Pickup is better than santros, altos and other cars in similar price segment. Bought it from Hisar(Haryans)(to save on taxes) was not given the foot mats (poorest service) A bit disappointed to see the finishing of chasis(check the boot) Maybe that's why the crowd is on Suzuki's favours, must be fed up seein swifts,altos crowded on road. Overall worth a buy if you guys believe me.
