Upcoming Cars of 2013 from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 8 lakh

Expected: Mid 2013, Price: Rs 5 - 7 lakh

Tata Indigo CS

 

Tata Indigo Manza*

 

Tata Motors Manza based Compact Sedan


Expected: Late 2013, Price: Rs. 6-7.5 lakh


Tata Motors were the first to avail of the sub four-metre excise duty benefits, by trimming its Indigo mid-size saloon and christening it as Indigo CS (compact sedan). The reduction in duty meant they were able to price the CS aggressively and it turned out to be a great success story for Tata. For 2013, a sub four-metre Manza is on the cards, the Manza CS is likely to be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel sourced from the Vista.  It will be interesting to see how Tata  manages to price the Manza CS and it could be marketed as a notchback version of the Vista.
