Latest on Tata Manza: 01 December, 2014

Tata Motors has been one of the leading playing in the Indian automotive sector. Tata’s Manza sedan has been around in the country for quite a while now, and has been known for its ample passenger cabin area space. Sales for the Manza sedan were pretty decent when launched, but over time failed to generate much sales numbers. Based on fresh reports from sources, Tata Motors may likely put an end to its so called, long car.

Summary

Tata Manza, a Sedan has 10 versions available in India. Tata Manza has 5 Petrol cars and 5 Diesel cars. Other popular cars in the similar price range of Tata Manza are Maruti Suzuki New Swift DZire, Nissan Sunny and Renault Scala. Tata Manza comes in 6 colours, namely, Castle Grey, Dew White, Infinity Black, Jet Silver, Laser Red, Tyrian Wine.

Tata Motors, the home-grown automaker had launched the Manza sedan as a replacement for the ageing Indigo sedan. With new, modern looks and feature loaded interiors, the company aimed to stay competitive in the heavily populated C segment. The sedan is available in two engine options - a 90PS petrol and a 90PS Fiat sourced multi-jet diesel. This model looks slightly older in looks compared to new breed of cars, but it offers several features.

Price

The various fuel trims in Tata Manza are priced differently. The Diesel trims are priced between Rs. 6,31,347/- to Rs. 8,77,413/-. The Petrol trims of Tata Manza start at Rs. 6,16,265/-.

Exterior

The Tata Manza sedan is based on the Indica Vista platform, and it retains the Vista family appearance. To keep things different and refreshing, the vehicle gets crisp lines and chrome inserts on the bumpers. There is chrome plating on the waistline that adds to the premium look of the Manza. Upfront is a trapezium-shaped grille, flanked by three-barrel headlamps, and the prominent hood strake offers aggressive and sporty touch to it. The silhouette of the sedan is the same offered with the Vista, and the stretched overhang at the back offers more boot space. The side indicators are positioned in between the mirrors and the A-Pillar, while the large greenhouse adds to its modern styling. At the back, the sedan gets block-shaped tail lamps and chrome strip on the bumper and boot.

Interior

Unlike the Vista’s interior styling and cabin space, the Manza gets an entirely different interior. The plastic quality is better, and the engineers have also worked upon noise insulation to keep the cabin quite. The vehicle gets dual-tone interiors with ample room to accommodate five adults comfortably. It features a white-backlit four-dial instrument cluster; the tachometer needle's backlit changes from white to red on pressing hard. The multi-functional steering wheel gets audio controls, and the 2-DIN audio system comes with six-speaker to offer good sound quality. The infotainment system is compatible with USB, AUX-in, and Bluetooth with a number pad. It is equipped with height adjustable drivers' seat with lumbar support, tilt adjustable steering, powerful air conditioning, etc. The vehicle offers a large luggage carrying capacity of 460-lires, which is more than sufficient to accommodate four suitcases.

Engine & transmission

The Tata Manza sedan is available in two engine options- 1.4-litre SAFIRE (petrol) and 1.3-litre Quadrajet (diesel). The engines have been sourced from Fiat, and the same powerplant also powers the Linea saloon. The 1.3-litre DOHC Quadrajet diesel motor is capable of producing 90bhp of top power and 200NM of peak torque, while the 1.4-litre double overhead cam SAFIRE churns out 90bhp and 116Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to front wheels of the sedan via a five-speed manual transmission.

Performance & Handling

The Manza comes with Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), which makes the accelerator pedal very light. This reduces driving tiredness. However, enthusiasts will like the harder pedal as the light pedal makes driving tough on corners. The car handles well, and one will enjoy the ride in city traffic. The oil burner accelerates to 100kmph from zero in less than 14 seconds, which is pretty decent.

Mileage

The various fuel trims in Tata Manza are priced differently. The Diesel trims are priced between Rs. 6,31,347/- to Rs. 8,77,413/-. The Petrol trims of Tata Manza start at Rs. 6,16,265/-.

Safety Features

The Tata Manza sedan comes equipped with various safety features including dual airbags (driver & co-driver), ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic BrakeForce Distribution), engine immobilizer, remote central locking, child safety lock, etc.

Braking System

The braking system of the Tata Manza sedan comprises of Disc and drum at front and rear, respectively. It is further assisted by ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and EBD (Electronic BrakeForce Distribution) that avoids wheel-locking and skidding on panic braking.

Verdict

The Tata Manza gets better exterior and interior styling than the Indigo, but it, still, lacks appeal when compared to modern cars. The vehicle gets decent quality interiors and good features. The overall driving dynamics are alright, but it won't make you happy on speeds and tight corners.

Competition

The Tata Manza sedan directly rival against the likes of Toyota Etios sedan and Chevrolet Sail.

Pros

  1. Attractive pricing
  2. Decent fuel economy
  3. Spacious interiors

Cons

  1. Exterior styling
  2. Driving dynamics
