Best in class mileage

Overall rating: 3 Reviewed By: Amresh Kapoor on 02 July 2015
I Partially agree with the above mentioned review, I am very much satisfied by this car. It gives the best in class mileage and also I did not face any problem with the AC. But I agree with the fact the interiors are not at all good. But for this price range I am satisfied with this Sedan  Read More »

Tata Indigo eCS Overview

Tata Motors' effort to make their cars more consumer oriented (and not just for the Taxi segment) is visible in the updates brought to vehicles like the Indigo eCS. While Indica Vista and Manza might be the premium offerings from the carmaker, it's the vehicles like Indigo eCS that bring more sales.
Tata Indigo eCS Overview
And what's the point of having them, if the cars aren't desirable enough! Well, fortunately, the Indigo eCS, one of the first sub-4m sedans in India, looks like a good bang for its buck.??Based on the same platform that underpins the Indica and Indigo, the eCS shares its looks as well. But while it remains to be very frugal, and the cost of ownership is rather low too, the advent of new sub-4 meter cars have managed to lure the personal car market.Tata Indigo eCS Overview

Tata Indigo eCS Exterior

While the updates are well, just upgrades, and let's face it, the Indigo eCS looks very much the same as it did back in the day when it was launched. The new look grille and headlamp combination looks good for the time, as it's, well, new.

?The side profile remains unchanged, and the rear is not different, except the added chrome garnish.Tata Indigo eCS Exterior
?On the whole, the vehicle looks good, not as good as the upcoming Zest though. The trademark Indica shape and an extended boot don't look bad, unlike rivals like the Verito Vibe and Dzire, which appear as a last minute exercise.??Although it looks decent, the lack of premium factor has been a hurdle for the Indigo eCS. Priced and positioned higher, the other sub-4 meter sedans have increased their market share, because they don't have to fight with the image problem that the Indigo eCS faces.

Tata Indigo eCS Interior

?Yes, the interior is updated a bit too. It's as spacious as ever, but now gets a new music system, dual-tone treatment all around, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gun-metal finished centre console. Other features added to the top-spec VX and GVX trim include a cooled glove box.

The instrument cluster looks good too, with the use of new octa-shaped dials and Tata's trademark four-spoke steering wheel. ??It's spacious and comfortable too. And don't let its sub-4 meter dimensions fool you, the car has a good amount of luggage space in the boot too. Overall comfort is good, but the lack of support from the seats is a bit off.Tata Indigo eCS Interior

Tata Indigo eCS Engine & Transmission

There are two diesel engines and one petrol unit available for the Indigo eCS. The petrol engine is a 1.2-litre MPFi unit that produces 65PS of power and 100Nm of torque. The diesel engines, on the other hand, include a 1.4-litre TDI unit that produces 70PS of power and 135Nm of torque.

But the star of the show has to be the 1.4-litre common rail 'CR4' engine that makes 70PS of power and 140Nm of torque, but it's more refined and thus more drivable. All the three engines get a 5-speed manual gearbox. The unit has been improved big time, and offers a better driving experience than previous Tata gearboxes.??The CR4 engine and the improved 5-speed gearbox make sure that driving the Indigo eCS remains fairly easy, hoping that the previous Taxi-like experience fades away.

Tata Indigo eCS Mileage

One of the other strong points of the Indigo eCS is the fuel economy it offers. The CR4-engined eCS offers a claimed fuel-economy of 25kmpl. The figure is good, because the eCS has a tendency to linger around the same fuel-economy figure under various conditions. ??Too many gearshifts aren't required, which means you can stay in a gear higher than usual, thus saving more fuel!

Tata Indigo eCS Braking and Safety

Ventilated discs up front and drum brakes at the rear are present on the Indigo eCS. ABS is present only on the top-spec VX and GVX trims. On the security front, the top-spec variant also get keyless entry. Although it's still an entry level offering, Tata could have offered optional airbags at least.

Tata Indigo eCS Performance and Handling

Drive it sensibly and the vehicle works fine, but push it and you'll start to notice its shortcomings. Since the suspension (the eCS runs on 14-inch wheels) is tuned for ride comfort, it's not stiff enough, and will exhibit a good amount of lateral movement, which can be a bit unnerving.
Ride is comfortable and it soaks up bumps well too. The seats can be improved in terms of shape, but it's an overall very comfortable affair at the rear too. The CR4 engine works good, and is very drivable in bumper to bumper traffic too.

What do we think about Tata Indigo eCS?

The Indigo eCS is a good entry level sedan. It is surely a bit rough around the edges, but offers you enough space, practicality, and frugality to make up for that.??The competition offers a more premium experience at a higher price. The price point at which the eCS is offered is close to the Indica on one side and other premium sub-4 meter sedans on the other. ??Tata is planning to launch the Zest, which would again be a sub-4 meter sedan but it will be positioned as a premium offering. The Indigo eCS might not be able to stand neck to neck with other options in the market, it sure can be the entry level sub-4 meter sedan you are looking for.

Tata Indigo eCS Competitors

Tata Indigo eCS is priced right, it sits close to the Indica Vista, but is less expensive than the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and Honda Amaze. The choice of engine options and variants give the eCS a wider audience, but the recently launched Hyundai Xcent is going to be a tough competitor, we reckon.
