Tata Indigo XL Overview
Based on the Indigo, it was filled with the goodness of Tata Indigo to the brim: space and comfort. And although Tata was still improving its products, but in comparison to the current full size sedan Manza, the Indigo XL is certainly not anywhere close in terms of quality. The extra price over the Indigo (and the added length) wasn't as exciting as it sounds, and the Indigo XL didn't find too many takers.
Tata Indigo XL Exterior
On the front, it looks exactly like the Indigo, except the added premium look which the use of chrome imparts. While the design is similar to what you would see on an Indigo, this one's just a bit more premium.
Coming to the sides, this is where it's easy to distinguish the Indigo XL from the rest of the range, thanks to the extended wheelbase. It could have been a better looker, but does the job.
The rear section gets large tail-lamps that stand out. The overall design is very similar to the car it's based on, but thanks to the increased length and added design elements, the XL stands out.
Tata Indigo XL Interior
The quality has been upped, and it looks more premium than its less-equipped brethren. Get to the rear seat, and the difference becomes visible. The added legroom, a separate AC vent at the rear, and the comfortable rear bench add up to what was once the most luxurious (and spacious) rear seat on the right side of Rs 10 lakh.
Apart from the huge legroom that we are talking about here, the head and shoulder room is impressive as well. Also, to complement the whole spaciousness inside, the car comes with a large boot as well.
Tata Indigo XL Engine & Transmission
The Bi-fuel version is a good option too, as it has the goodness of the petrol engine (low noise, better refinement) and the efficiency of CNG. The Indica family has always been known for good efficiency (especially the diesels), and the Indigo XL brings all that and adds some premium feel to it.
All three engines came with 5-speed manual gearboxes (5-forward and 1-reverse). The quality of shifts was just about okay, and nowhere close to the feel (and positive shifts) of the current gearboxes. If you are planning to use the Indigo XL as a chauffeur-driven vehicle, then that won't matter to you, but if you are planning to drive it, then the gearshifts could be a bit of a letdown.

Tata Indigo XL Braking and Safety
On the safety front, it's again a mixed bag for the car, as the only safety features available on it are passive ones. There's no ABS or EBD, which is concerning since the vehicle is long, and dropping momentum at a quick rate could be a bit alarming.
There are child locks, anti-submarine seats and collapsible steering column. There's also an engine immobilizer as well, apart from the regular door and seat-belt warning indicators.
Tata Indigo XL Performance and Handling
Having said that, the stability of the vehicle is decent, and shouldn't be a problem on long drives. The car isn't a performance oriented sedan, and expecting it to go quick around corners would be wrong.
Performance from the engines is acceptable, but what matters here is the ride quality, and the Indigo XL clearly wins hearts with the superb ride quality. It can glide over potholes well, and won't trouble the rear seat passengers a bit. The suspension tuned for ride comfort works well, and that's what the car is all about, isn't it?
