Tata Indica review
VIEW DETAILED REVIEW
Tata’s first crack at India’s booming hatchback market came way back in 1998. Nearly two decades on, the humble Indica continues to soldier on carrying forward the same formula it debuted with - a spacious cabin, a frugal motor and a low sticker price. With modern offerings storming the market every month, does the Indica manage to hold its ground? Let’s find out.
Things We Like in Indica
- Spacious cabin can accommodate five occupants. Good for those family dinner trips.
- Fuel efficient diesel motor keeps the wallet happy. ARAI-certified efficiency = 25kmpl.
- Comfortable low-speed ride quality. Cabin doesn’t get put off by an odd pothole.
Things We Don't Like in Indica
- Engine feels underpowered on the highway. Best used for intra-city commutes.
- No ABS or Airbags on offer, even as an option.
Should you consider buying the Indica in 2017? The answer to that, quite simply, is no. With prices starting around the Rs 5 lakh mark, there are far better looking and better equipped cars on sale today.
"The humble Indica is a reliable, no non-sense workhorse."
The Indica is too dated to be in the running. That however does not take away from the fact that the humble Indica is a reliable, no non-sense workhorse.
