The frontage is stylish with a smart chrome grille and radiant headlamps. The rear end has an impressive tail lamp cluster.

Tata Indica Interior

The interior of Tata Indica eV2 is tastefully done and definitely impresses even in a cursory glance. Unlike other hatchbacks, it is loaded with some incredible features. The rack and pinion type steering wheel has four spokes and the instrument panel is very chic. Adding to passenger convenience are features like reading lamps, a cabin lamp that is operatable from all four doors, a lamp in the boot, a utility tray with a coin holder and a parcel shelf. The horn pad for the steering wheel, moulded roof lining, internal antenna and the door trims are other likeable features of this hatch. The dashboard is the same heritage Indica type and the music system is also the unchanged one with bluetooth connectivity and an aux-in port.

Tata Indica Braking and Safety

The front wheels of Tata Indica eV2 have disc brakes while the rear wheels come with drum brakes. Safety features in the car include anti-submarine seats, a collapsible steering column, side intrusion beam on all doors, rear fog lamps, child safety lock and a head lamp leveler. Antilock Braking System (ABS) is a recent inclusion while airbags are still amiss.

Tata Indica Performance and Handling

The suspension system of Tata Indica eV2 is an independent, wishbone, MacPherson Strut type for the front axle. The rear axle has an independent, semi?trailling arm type suspension with coil spring. The car comes equipped with hydraulic shock absorbers. The small turning radius of 4.9 m makes Indica eV2 extremely maneuverable. The steering wheel seems amorphous at times and there is some body roll experienced.

What do we think about Tata Indica?

Tata Indica eV2 is a smart city car with a stupendous fuel?efficiency. Priced between 3.99 L and 4.88 L, it has set the hatchback segment abuzz. It is very conveniently designed and the feature line?up is ideal for a small car that keeps you moving in the city. Tata Motors is a very renowned automobile manufacturer and enjoys a grand reputation in India. The well?spread Tata dealership nexus is a high point and the after?sales service is incredible too.
This little hatchback is like an old wine in a new bottle. Not much has been changed about the looks though some touch of style is seen in the new bumper, the revamped headlights and in the chrome strip on Indica’s derri?re. The side profile is inherited from its predecessors. The interior elements lack finesse and quality and Tata should look into the same. For the tasteful lot, it can be quite a turn?off. The petrol version of Indica has been discontinued and in its present form, Indica eV2 comes with a 1.4 l, 16?valved, Common Rail Direct Injection type Diesel engine with a capacity of 1396 cc. The torque yield has increased and turbo lag is greatly reduced. This coupled with a very small turning radius of 4.9 m, makes it a very convenient city car. The clutch is more refined but the gear shifts could have been much better. The ride quality is superior and that is attributed to its refurnished suspension system. The brakes, however, feel spongy and the near absence of safety features pinches hard. For those who are on the lookout for a simply designed, extremely fuel?efficient city car, Indica eV2 is a hero!

Tata Indica Competitors

The hatchback segment is vociferously growing and drawing more and more buyers towards it. With traffic roughening across cities and shrinking parking availability, hatchbacks are supremely convenient as city cars. Many car manufacturers are taking a plunge into this high-growth segment and even luxury automobile companies are now entering it.
Tata Indica eV2 is amidst some serious competition in this segment. Its chief competitors are Hyundai Santro, Chevrolet Beat, Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo and Maruti Swift and Ritz. Hyundai Santro has highly advanced Korean technology backing it and houses a superior Petrol engine compared to the Indica eV2 that comes powered with a Diesel engine. Maruti Swift and Ritz have abysmally low maintenance costs and in this regard, score over Indica. Tata Indica eV2 has space as its plus. It is very spacious for a hatchback and offers ample leg and knee room. The other selling propositions of India eV2 are its superior ride quality and high fuel-efficiency.
