Tata has been the ultimate small car manufacturer after Maruti Suzuki as Tata Indica remained the one and only choice of buyers for quite an appreciable amount of time. Later the Indica was promoted at times and again by launching new models like Tata Indica Vista and Tata Indica V2 Turbomax , but the original Indica was somewhere left out.
Main reason for the ignorance was the lack of BS4 compliance which eventually led to its fall and now the company is planning to revise the old Tata Indica Dicor and will be rebadged as Tata Indica CR4. This will lead to higher sales volumes and capture a larger market share, if the car becomes a success.
Mr Ramakrishnan, Tata Motors Vice President (Commercial-Passenger Car Business Unit) said,”We will be introducing a Tata Indica BS IV variant (diesel) with CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection) next month”
Playing safely the company will price the new BS4 compliant model well above the BS3 one as the new CRDI diesel engine will incur some extra cost while it will marginally lower than Indica Vista so as to avoid any conflicts between the customers.
