      Scoop: TML working on a new Manza variant or this is another Nova??

      Reader of oncars.in have spotted this Manza with new paint scheme and add-ons. Well, this could be a new Manza variant or another special edition. It is an annual affair at Tata Motors to bring out a facelift or a special edition model of their mass market products. The Vista has been presented twice with different body paint and alloy wheels and last year went through a more comprehensive facelift program. The more recent Manza witnessed changes to its variants, the top-end Elan with the Tyrian Wine paint job became Tata’s super sedan.

      We also need to note that Tata displayed what could be the next variant above the Elan, The Manza Nova concept equipped a host of new features made its debut at the 2012 Auto Expo. Tata is trying to make the Manza a suitable option for the entry D-Segment customers. At the Auto Expo Tata displayed a new Spanish Tan colour with stylish alloy wheels.

      The color on test bears a bright Orange color with a black roof which is currently available in the Manza offering. Tata had also launched a similar variant of the Indica Vista tagged as the anniversary edition a year ago. Could this be an anniversary edition from Tata?





      The Manza has seen a slide in sales, thanks to competition and established Swift Dzire brand which is seen as an obvious choice given the sales touching 15,000 per month.

      Feature highlights of the Manza Nova
      • Reverse Parking Sensor
      • Rear View Camera With Video Display
      • Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror
      • Perimeter Security Alarm System
      • 2DIN Music System With Sound-Stage Effects
      • Premium Alloy Wheels
      • Plush ‘Plum And Black’ Interior Trim With Genuine Leather Seats
      • Chrome highlights on the gear knob
      • New Spanish Tan colour

      TML might nix the current model nomenclature that varies with every model and adopt a common set of names across its model range. There is possibility of Aqua, Aura and Elan could be replaced with trims such as LX, VX and ZX like what they did with Vista. The Manza Indigo badge could be made even smaller as Tata Motors are not using the Indigo prefix during communications.

      TML would bring this model during the Manza's third annivesary

      As we know that TATA are specialist in the new year editions. I guess this manza will be named as 2012 edition with new 5 colours as they did for nano 2012

      Thats the point. Tata doesnt do much. It will be similar to the Verito Facelift mahindra is doing. Only changing some parts which can be done in JC road, GP road, etc.. But we are not sure of what interior changes they are doing. Still I donot expect anything great from TATA. Owning a MAnza, i can say that there is not much to improve. These facelift are just for sake of formalities they are doing. Over the 3 years itself , they have done so many feature reductions than additions. When i purchase Manza jyune 2011 model, the 2 keys had remote control lock unlock. but in 2012 Jan manufacture Manza, even in top level trim the 2nd key doesnot have remote button.

      I'd doubt the Half price bit. Tata is undeniably the king of value (reliablity being an entirely different matter ). Typically the difference in pricing between variants is usually vastly less than the additional kit installed - most manufacturers charge double usually. For ex, compared to the DLS turbo and the DLG turbo, when I was buying my car, Mine came with a rear defogger, power windows, split rear seats, front foglamps, left ORVM, different front console.... that the intercooler, 14" wheels and beefier internals were effectively free for the 15K price differential

      Don't know about new Manza .. but, Tata Motors is currently working on all new hatchback which will be launched next year.


      Tata Motors is looking to launch upto three new models in the coming six-to-nine months. Sources indicate that this is a major effort to infuse new life into the passenger-car business where sales has come under tremendous pressure in the recent past.
      Sources also indicate that Tata Motors will launch a small hatchback for the A-segment to directly compete with Maruti's Alto and Hyundai's Eon. The hatchback model is also an effort to bridge the gap between the Nano and the Indica.
