Tata Manza 2011-2015 Overview

The Tata Manza is to Indigo, what the Indica Vista is to the original Vista. But the Manza has a couple of neat tricks up its sleeves to outgun the segment leaders. It comes in two engine options, a Fiat sourced 90PS diesel and a 90PS petrol.
Both adequate performers help up the Manza's driver appeal, and the ride and handling doesn't disappoint either. Yes, it's more of a laid back sedan than a super-saloon but it's not disappointing. The competition consists of well-established players like the Swift Dzire and Hyundai Verna, but the Manza does well in finding its own identity in the market. ??In terms of passenger cars, it is the most premium offering by Tata Motors, and with the long list of features, and added space and comfort, comfirms its positioning.?Competition might offer more features and premium looks, but there are a very few cars in the segment that offer such large space for its occupants. That way, the Nissan Sunny and Renault Scala do pose a threat, but on the whole, the Manza looks better than the two.

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Exterior

Clearly based on the Indica Vista, the front looks well balanced, if a little aggressive. The fascia isn't cluttered and thanks to abundant use of chrome, it doesn't lose out on the bling factor either. The car sits well on 15-inch rubber, although the rear looks a bit too extended when looked at from the sides.
Coming to the rear, it may come as a surprise, because in comparison to the front, the rear looks awkwardly plain.??The design could have been slightly better, especially the rear of the vehicle. The top-spec variant gets a different coloured roof, called Infinity Contrast Roof, which does help the car stand out.

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Interior

Tata products are generally known for comfort, but in terms of fit and finish, they are a bit off. But that's not the case with the Manza. It's spacious, comfortable, airy, and well put together.
Dual-tone interior make it look lavish, and it's doesn't compromise on features either. There's a 2-DIN touch-screen navigation cum music system available on the top 2 variants. Space in the front and rear is class-leading and same goes for the 460-litre boot. And the inclusion of automatic climate control on the top variant is a welcome touch. So are the steering mounted audio controls.??Abundance of legroom coupled with better interiors and features make the Manza a better product overall.

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Engine & Transmission

The Manza comes in two engine options, a 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced Quadrajet diesel, and a 1.4-litre Safire petrol. While both make an identical 90PS of power, the Quadrajet makes more torque: 200Nm vs Safire's 116Nm. Both come with a 5-speed gearbox.
So, while the diesel is great for frugality and long journeys, the petrol is a great option for those whose commutes are confined to city more than on highways. Having said that, the petrol mill is good for highways too, it's just not as frugal as its diesel counterpart. The Fiat-sourced diesel engine is efficient and peppy, as well.

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Mileage

The petrol variant of the Manza delivers close to 15kmpl while the diesel version impresses with a close to 20kmpl on the highway. The figure goes down when driving in traffic, but once on the highway, the Manza blesses with frugality. And with a 44-litre fuel tank, the car gets a good range too.

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Braking and Safety

With ventilated discs up front and drum brakes on the rear wheels, the Manza dissipates speed with ease, especially the two ABS and EBD-equipped variants. The top variant gets dual front airbags, and front seatbelt pretensioners too.
On the security front, there's the engine immobiliser (on all variants), remote entry, central locking, and door ajar and seatbelt warning on all variants except the entry-level version.

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Performance and Handling

The Manza stays planted on highways, and can attack corners at moderate speeds. But it doesn't stay flat, and has a noticeable amount of body rolls present, which becomes evident while cornering.
The steering is not the lightest of the lot, but isn't too heavy either. It has weight and once you understand it, maneuvering the car isn't an issue. Also, it has quite a comfortable ride, and that keeps the legacy alive!

What do we think about Tata Manza 2011-2015?

The Tata Manza is what the Indigo should have been in the first place. It looks good, comes laden with features, is quite fuel efficient, and has a lot of space inside the cabin. It drives okay, and doesn't bother the passengers with stiff suspension either.
?This vehicle helps Tata disassociate itself from the taxi image. The car is made after Tata learned its lessons from the first Indica and Indigo. Does the Manza make any sense? It indeed does, and even pitted against segment leaders, it has something or the other in its favour.?

Tata Manza 2011-2015 Competitors

With cars like the Hyundai Verna, Honda City, and Nissan Sunny in sights, the Manza has a rather large task in front of it. But not only does the Manza deliver, it doesn't lower its standards anywhere, and that's what makes this Tata so special. On the lower end of the spectrum, there's the ever growing market of compact sedans. Now, in comparison to those, the Manza offers more space, features, and retains the frugality.
While in terms of handling it might not be close to the Volkswagen Vento of the Fiat Linea, the Manza delivers a good balance of ride and handling. Add to that the long list of features, and space!
