Highlights

November 22, 2013: India's leading car-maker,  Tata has launched the CNG version of Indigo in the Indian car market. It has been priced at Rs. 4.99 lakh for the entry level GLS model and Rs. 5.27 lakh for the GLX model. 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 vehicle comes equipped with a new advanced F-Shift gear box and new Duo Float suspension. The Indigo 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 being the shortest sedan has the maximum length of a hatchback but it has the looks and space of a fully grown sedan. The vehicle has captured a good market, and the reasons being the brand's trust and the high performance usually delivered out of this brand's vehicles. The new model is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The diesel engine is a Common Rail CR4, 16-valve, DOHC engine while the petrol power mill is a MPFI engine with 32-bit microprocessor. The 1396cc diesel engine in the car generates 69bhp@ 4000rpm and a maximum torque of 140Nm at only 1800-3000rpm which makes it the most economical car. Tata Indigo eCS CR4 VX delivers a mileage of 25 kmpl as per ARAI and is claimed to be the most fuel-efficient sedan in India. On the other hand the 1193cc petrol engine has the capacity to churn out 64.11bhp power @ 5000rpm and a maximum torque of 100Nm @ 2700rpm. With the five speed transmission, the car delivers pretty well performance specifically when driving on city roads. The model launched recently has all alloy wheels, modern central console, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), Bluetooth Connectivity, Keyless entry and Rear Arm rest. In terms of mileage, it has surprised many around, as the vehicle delivers fuel economy of 25kmpl, and it is an outcome of Smart Engine Management. The shorter length translates to easy parking especially in cramped urban space.

 

In terms of dimensions, the compact sedan measures 3988mm of length, this makes the vehicle qualify as the small segment car, and not really a complete sedan. This model was never appealing in terms of looks, but the CS has markedly improved on its front, with a stylish new tail light cluster at the rear end, and overall a smart rear profile makes it look better. The company has not stinted on the suspension, and has implemented an independent McPherson struts in both the front and rear. This translates to a smoother ride even over distressed roads. The 10kg reduction in weight due to the 162mm reduction in length does improve the mileage marginally. The car is available in five attractive colours, named as sterling gold, starlight blue, Royal Burgundy, Porcelain White, Arctic Silver. There are nine models of the vehicle available with three engine options-Petrol and two diesel engines. The Maximum Charge Combustion system in place has a newly designed engine head, block and the piston which ensures a smooth flow of the fuel in order to reduce the NVH levels of the car.

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.

 

Despite being a compact sedan, the new Indigo eCS is quite spacious on the inside. It has a comfortable seating for four/five with ample headroom, legroom, shoulder room, elbow room and boot space. Stepping inside the car is easy with the keyless entry option in place. The interiors however pose more like the Indica model but the quality of the material and beige color is unique to Indigo eCS. The cabin design is ruled by the long horizontal dashboard central console in wood finish that houses two AC vents, the AC controls and the audio system. The ‘T’ shaped three-spoke beige colored steering, looks amazing and provides a proper grip of it. The dashboard also has two AC vents on both the sides. The central console flows down to the bottom of the gear shifter and the handbrake. The gearshift knob is provided with an option of leather wrapping on some models.

 

The vehicle’s interiors are available in pleasant Dual Tone-Beige & Coco Brown and seats are provided with partial fabric or full fabric options. There are storage pockets on the front/rear doors besides bottle cup holders. There is also a front power outlet in addition to front and rear cabin lamps and vanity mirror on co-driver side. At the rear, there’s ample of space for two/three passengers to sit comfortably. There is also a rear hand rest that can be folded to house three persons.

 

Interior Comfort:

 

In terms of comfort levels, the vehicle has been designed to make journeys so easy and relaxing for the occupants that even long trips could be planned out with it. Comfort features include, internally adjustable ORVMs, comfortable seats and an easy accommodation of nearly five passengers. There are front and rear power windows in the high-end variants. The seats can be chosen from full or partial fabric option as per the choice of the customers. There are two headrests at the rear to make the long journeys comfortable for the rear passengers.

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.

 

This compact sedan is available with three engine options that includes, two diesel and one petrol powered model. The two diesel engine are 1.3-liter diesel CR4 and 1.4-liter diesel Tdi, while the power output figure is the same for both i.e. 69.04bhp. While the petrol model gets 1193cc MPFi engine which generates 64.11bhp of maximum power. All the engines are mated with a smooth five-speed manual gear transmission.

 

Power:

 

Ed's take: The power of the CR4 engine from Tata is good and it is decent on paper as well. The power delivery is linear and even the drivability is spot on. The power of the CNG is decent too.

 

The new Tata Indigo eCS is available with three engine options - two diesels and petrol. The diesel engines are; Common Rail CR4, 16 valve DOHC BSIV compliant engine that has a displacement of 1396cc and that delivers 69.04bhp of power at 4000rpm and a maximum torque of 140Nm at 1800-3000rpm. The other diesel engine available is the TDi, turbocharged diesel engine with intercooler. This engine has a power of 69.04bhp that it churns out at 4500rpm. This engine is BSIII compliant and has a maximum torque of 135Nm. While the petrol motor is MPFI engine, 1193cc, BSIV compliant and has the ability to generate maximum power of 64.11bhp at 5000rpm and a maximum torque of 100Nm at 2700rpm.

 

Accelration:

 

Ed's takeThe acceleration of the eCS is good and it is very drivable, unlike the olden days Indigos. The CR4 has made a lot of difference

 

The diesel variant catches 0 to 100 kmph speed in just 18 seconds while the petrol variant touch the 100 kmph mark in just a second earlier in 17 seconds. The engines have proved to be fuel efficient and releases lesser carbon emissions. Specifically the petrol engine with multi-point fuel injection system allows perfect flow of fuel, which churns the overall performance of the engine.

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 Tata Indigo eCS has attained a new milestone in terms of mileage, with an impressive 25kmpl of mileage figures as per ARAI. The CRDi engine powered model delivers a mileage of 22.0 kmpl in the city and 25 kmpl on the highways . The other model powered with a TDi BSIII engine delivers a city mileage of 13.6 kmpl and 18.3 kmpl on the highways. The petrol MPFi power variants are tuned to deliver an average of 15.0 kmpl in the city and 18.0 kmpl on the long run .

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.

 

The new Tata Indigo eCS has vacuum assisted, independent dual circuit, diagonal split hydraulic brakes through tandem master cylinder. The front brakes are ventilated Disc type while the rear brakes are drum brakes. The front suspension is an independent McPherson strut with Coil Spring while the rear suspension is an independent 3-link McPherson strut with Antiroll Bar. This combination suppresses severe jerks which are usually felt while riding on Indian roads. The steering of the new Tata Indigo eCS is a rack and pinion type with collapsible steering column.

  • The Cheapest Car - Cheap as in Poor Quality as well
    By Venugopal Pisharody| | 1250 Views
    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.

  • Clutch plate worn out in First 3Km-Indigo ecs Hi help me find the problem!! I bought a new Tata indigo ecs. I took a delivery at 7pm on 19/07/14. The clutch plate worn out in a mere 30mn from the delivery hard about 3Km. The mileage at the time of delivery was 47Km. My dealer is complaining of 1. Driving with Handbreaks on. 2. Driving with half clutch My driver has 8 years experience. He is well aware of all these things. I browsed all the possible causes of this over net. 1. Hand Breaks: I am pretty sure that hand breaks were released completely. B’coz I have myself checked it once. a. The only option is that the hand break is faulty. b. Even with the hand breaks on it could take at least several days for clutch plate to burn out. 2. Half clutch : This could really wear out the clutch plate rapidly. a. But is 3Km/30mn with top speed of 3 km in silk board traffic sufficient time to wear out? b. In 3Km tour, He might have changed the gear at least 200 times. How probable is that he has used the half clutch in all 200 gear shifts? Here is a bit of justification that my driver is not the culprit. As per the advices by various experts on Car : 1. When a clutch is worn out the gear shifts are not smoother. a. From the moment he took off from the showroom he had problem shifting gears. I have at least asked 10times in the very first 100mtrs. 2. The pickup drops significantly. a. Yes the pickup was very damp from the moment he took off. Please help me find the real cause. | Reply
