TATA INDICA: something below and average
Since, many years tata groups has constantly updated their most valued car, yes you're right! I'm talking about none other than TATA INDICA. since years tata is constantly bring about the best side of it, be it the entry level car or it's most premium car. TATA INDICA is the car for someone who is looking for reputed brand at affordable price. It has got all those features of an entry level car that one should possess. Let's start with it's exterior, the long pulled front headlights give it a beast look and the long stretched back lights. but the look from the side hasn't changed much. It still reminds me of Indica of 2000s, but let's not forget it's tata their might be some upgradation. Ground clearance is decent. Talking about the interior it has power steering, with all 4 power windows, remote trunk opener which is something new in this segment, remote fuel lid opener. To my shock lumbar support is introduced which is a new feature for everyone. talking about music system, in times of touch screen tata is missing on it. There is no touch screen operated music system, there is no navigation system which most of the other rivals provide. but the plus side is that it isn't oudated, it has got bluetooth connectivity also one thing that was missing was parking sensors, steering mounted controls. instrument cluster were found almost similar to older version. Getting in and out of the car was pretty decent. headroom in the backseat (according to my height which is 5'6 for reference) is decent. legroom was also decent. The material used for dashboard was also not upto the mark. The boot space is adequate to house those one large suitcase. Although you can increase the boot space by pulling down the backseats which provides you adequate space for housing the bags but you won't get a flattish boot. Those power windows button is downside for TATAs as they're placed alongside the gears which means for everytime you have to get little bit of down for pressing those power windows buttons, REALLY IT IS DOWNSIDE! The cushioning of the seats is "average", it doesn't provide you much comfort on those long journeys where you're going to hit the roads. At the end of the day you might feel tired or might be concerned about your BACK! comfort and music department is something where TATA needs to do their homework! Power steering is decent. The road side service of TATA is plus point for it. Talking about the engine. The Indica eV2 comes with just one diesel engine and a 62bhp, 1.2-litre MPFI petrol motor. We drove the 1,396cc, common-rail, CR4, a Tata-developed diesel motor that's borrowed from the Indica eCS. As we've witnessed earlier, the engine churns out a lacklustre 69bhp and 140Nm of torque, and misses out on refinement and outright punch. The eV2 is no speed demon and won't heave you to triple-digit speeds in a hurry it takes a leisurely 16.44 seconds from standstill to 100kph. The Indica eV2 felt more at home in the city, with good initial response from the throttle, while not showing any great urgency in getting ahead of the rest out on the highway. The verdict A budget, no-nonsense commuter vehicle with decent features that will get you from A to B without burning a hole in your wallet!
