The vehicle comes equipped with a new advanced F-Shift gearbox and new Duo Float suspension. Moreover, the petrol-CNG engine of the car is capable of developing 65bhp of top power and returns an amazing fuel efficiency figure of 24.6km/kg. It also offers an additional range of up to 230km in CNG over 650km in petrol. The emax has been introduced in 6 cities across India and will now be available in Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Tripura.

Overview

The Tata Indigo eCS from Tata Motors was among the initial vehicles that triggered the compact sedan segment in India, and at the time of its release, it was credited as the sedan with the lowest length in the world. It was originally launched in 2002, and has since then, grown to become one of the most widely used vehicles in the Indian market. It comes with a design that was originally based on another of the company's car models, the Indica. Although the two vehicles share a greatly resemblant design, the Indigo was made with a higher wheelbase and with a massive trunk storage capacity. Since its launch, it has been employed greatly in various fields of the market, and a notable usage of the car is in the Taxi industry.

Following the positive response that came in the years after its release, the company gave the car its first makeover in 2006. Initially built with a simple taste, it now received distinguishing features, such as more upmarket double-barrel headlamps, front fog-lamps, more plush interiors with fabric upholstery, etc. It got an engine upgrade in 2010, after which the name of the car was changed from just Indigo to Indigo eCS. The latest generation of the vehicle comes with numerous new features. Having received its latest upgrade just recently in 2013, the vehicle is available with a couple of additional features like Anti lock braking system.

The car is made available in a range of variants with three different engine options out of which, two are diesel and one is a petrol trim. The first is a diesel CR4 engine that can displace 1396cc. The second is a diesel TDi engine, which has a displacement value of 1405cc. The last is a petrol MPFi engine, and this has a displacement capacity of 1193cc. This vehicle comes with an all new duo float based suspension system. As for its exteriors, the vehicle has many impressive design elements such as a chrome grille, smoked headlamps, a sporty dual tone bumper, chrome ringed front fog lamps, body coloured rubrails with chrome inserts and rear chrome garnish. The vehicle's cabin comes with a good level of comfort and has a seating capacity of four. The cabin provides a charging socket, a vanity mirror for the driver, a bottle holder on the front seat, a cabin light, an armrest for the rear seat, magazine pockets on the front doors and many other features to enhance drive pleasure. The company is offering the vehicle with a warranty package of two years or 75000km, depending on whichever is reached earlier. In addition to this, there is an option to avail an extended warranty of two years.

Interiors

Ed's take:  The interior of the eCS doesn’t feel old anymore and it has seen an upgrade. Also, the fact that Tata is targeting first-time sedan owner, hence the features are basic. The quality of materials used has been improved.

 

The cabin comes with a premium dual tone interiors. There are metallic accents on the doors, instrument cluster, steering wheel and gear console. At the front, there is a four spoke steering wheel, which is wrapped in leather. The company's marque is present at the centre of the wheel. The speedometer is illuminated for better visibility.

The seats inside are quite comfortable, as they are covered with premium fabric and has reclining function. There is a power outlet at the front, which allows for charging phones and devices.

Acceleration & Pick-Up

The vehicle has the capacity to accelerate from naught to 100kmph within 15 seconds. Also, it can reach 120kmph within 25 seconds. Furthermore, it can climb to a top speed of 145kmph, which is good considering the segment it comes under.

Engine and Performance

Ed's take:  The 1.4-litre CR4 engine that Tata is offering is more economical than the 1.3-litre quadrajet that it is using on its Vista and Manza. While the performance on both of them, is sort of similar. The CR4 engine has done wonders for the Indigo eCS and the Indica eV2. Even the CNG is a good engine to have.

 

The vehicle has three engines. The first is a common rail CR4 diesel engine. It has 4-cylinders and 16-valves based on DOHC configuration. This drivetrain has a displacement capacity of 1396cc that allows it to produce a power of 69hp along with a torque of 140Nm. The second engine is a TDi diesel mill with turbocharger and an intercooler. This drivetrain has a displacement of 1405c. It can produce a peak power of 69hp, and a peak torque of 135Nm. The last is an MPFi petrol engine, that is equipped with a 32-bit microprocessor. This trim has a displacement value of1193cc. This mill can unleash a power of 64hp along with a torque of 100Nm. All of the engine mills are paired with an all new F-shift five speed gearbox. On an average, the vehicle can reach a top speed of around 145kmph, and can reach the 100kmph mark within 15 seconds.

Mileage

Ed's take:  The fuel efficiency of the Indigo eCS is something that Tata Motors has been boasting about. As per the ARAI cycle, they get a fuel economy of 25kmpl. In the real world it will be lesser, but more than most of the competition. The upgraded eCS still has that. And now you even have the cost effective CNG variant too.

 

The CR4 diesel engine delivers a mileage of 22kmpl on city roads and 25kmpl on highways. As for the TDi diesel engine, a mileage of 13.6kmpl on city roads is achieved, with 18.3kmpl for highways. As for the petrol variant, the MPFi engine delivers a mileage of 15kmpl for city limits, and 18kmpl for highways.

Accessories
Stereo & Accessories

Braking & Handling

Ed's take:  The eCS having a short wheelbase enhances its handling capabilities. This is one sedan that can go well around bends.

 

It has a vacuum assisted, independent dual circuit diagonal split hydraulic brakes through taundem master cylinder. The front brakes are fitted with ventilated discs, while the rear brakes have drums. The suspension system is also of good standard. The front axle of the chassis is equipped with independent McPherson strut with coil spring. The rear axle has an independent 3-link McPherson strut with anti roll bar. In addition to this, the handling is also made smoother with the aid of an anti lock braking system. The steering is a rack and pinion based system with collapsible steering column.

Ed's take:  The safety features on the Indigo eCS include airbags and ABS.

 

The vehicle provides tight seatbelts for its passengers. In addition to this, it has double barrel headlamps that provide optimum visibility.

    Tata Indigo eCS is the cheapest car? The poorest possible quality. A car one would not recommend to one's worst enemy. Note following stats: The AC rotary switches (rarely touched) on the dash board was non-functional in just 13 months of use. In my earlier third world Korean car, Santro, all the controls worked perfectly  for 10 years, 100000 kms till I sold the car. The AC was non-functional within three years, 23000 kms of use.
