The Tata Manza was launched in 2009, but after that it has been given numerous tweaks. In 2012, October, Tata has launched the Manza Club Class which has some changes to the looks and a number of added features to woo the customer. Exterior wise the Manza Club Class wears a sprinkling of chrome and new 8 split-spoke alloys and has a contrasting roof that do brush up the exterior and make it more pleasing than before. 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 theTata Manza Club Class comes with new features like touchscreen multi-media interface with in-built GPS and Automatic Climate Control.

The touchscreen brings GPS navigation, multi-media DVD player, Blu5 and other such functionalities all through a multi-colour 6.2 inch high resolution display. The seats now are more comfy. 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 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 has an fuel economy of 13.7 kmpl as certified by ARAI. The diesel is a strong performer though there is some turbo-lag but it is well contained. Tata Manza Club Class has the upper hand here as far as ride quality and comfort are concerned.   The Tata Manza Club Class is available in four variants- LS, LX, VX, EX, EXL. The top-spec EXL variant is loaded with features like touch-screen navigation, steering controls, leather seats, auto-climate control, follow-me-home lights, 15 inch alloy wheels.

The list of active and passive safety features on this model is also substantially long. ABS with EBD and front airbags are standard fitment. The Safire petrol range will start from Rs.5.70 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi) and the Quadrajet diesel range will start from Rs. 6.49 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi).

Handling Braking & Safety Details

Handling

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. On the flip side at higher speeds, it doesn’t have that ultimate ride and handling mix like the Fiat Linea. The suspension setup is the same as the Vista with independent MacPherson struts at the front and se

Refinement could have been better.

A great buy in 2009

By Deepak Posted on 03 Jan 10, 08:55 PM

Pros Getting Mileage of 16KMPL(50% City 50% Highway), No Noise, Ingress/egrees 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 ingress/egress. 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.

Indulgence survey ot TATA Manza

By Narendra Kannaganti Posted on 09 Feb 10, 10:52 AM

Pros Good looking, fantastic mileage, very comforatable, very low sound level and extremely economical

Cons Music sysstem could have been better with DVD/VCD 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 KM/L in city and about 17 KM/L 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.

NOISY CABIN.

By Roshith Sunny Posted on 20 Feb 10, 04:24 PM

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.

MY EXPERIENCE

By Rahul Katariya Posted on 13 Feb 10, 11:42 AM

Pros Great Feel, excellant milage, worth going for

Cons Bit hanky panky interior fittings but then still better than avilability in market.

I have been associated with TATA vehicles since 2000, i have seen there improvements in models & experienced there technology. But still i wanted something more better like milage, comfort, looks etc etc which came to en end when i took a test drive of MANZA which i have already bought. Its my dream car. Thanks to TATA for this but still one thing in would like to express to all the buyers, please do not go on the words of showroom executive, they cannot explain TATA MANZA better, you personally feel the difference. I think TATA should improve on this point, to my knowledge out of 10 customers 1 goes back not satisfied due to negligence of these persons.
