Tata Motors has launched a revised line-up of the Manza Sedan for this festive season. Although the exteriors remain largely unchanged the interiors do get a handset set of new features including black leather Italian upholstery, a chrome instrument cluster, a new gear knob with chrome and leather combination finish, a two-tone dashboard, touchscreen multimedia navigation, steering mounted audio controls. Front and rear cabin lights, Tachometer and automatic climate control.
The company has introduced a new top-end trim called the EXL. The other variants are LS, LX,VX and EX which replace the Aqua, Aura, Aura ABS and Elan monikers. The new Manza is available in six colors – Laser Red, Tyrian White, Castle Grey, Dew White and Jet Silver come with black roof, while Infinity Black colored Manza comes with silver roof. This roof color combination is only offered on the EX and EXL variants.
The front grille of Tata Manza Club Class consists of four horizontal lines which is dominated by big Tata logo and chrome finish upper lip which looks very familiar – nothing new here. The top model of Tata Manza Club Class features full chrome grille. The rear bumper of Manza is plain with chrome strip running across it, which gives it a very wide and big car look. The chrome inserts on the rub rails and outer door handles add that touch of class. A new Infinity Contrast Roof and new 8 split-spoke alloys add further class to the exteriors.
Under the hood, the Tata Manza Club Class is powered by a 1.3-litre Quadrajet90 diesel engine that hands out 89bhp along with 200Nm of peak torque and the 1.4-litre Saffire90 petrol engine that produces the same 89bhp but with a reduced 116Nm of peak torque. Both the engines come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Tata Motors claims a fuel efficiency figure of 21.02kpl for the diesel and 13.7kpl for the petrol powered car.
Tata Manza Club Class edition is priced at Rs. 5.70 lakh for the entry-level petrol version and Rs. 6.49 lakh for the entry-level diesel version (both prices ex-showroom, Delhi). It also comes with a warranty of 2 Years/75,000 kms, amongst the best in the industry.
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Karl Slym, Managing Director of Tata Motors, said –
“Customer centricity is the hallmark of Tata Motors. As desired by today’s Indian motorist, the Tata Manza Club Class delivers premiumness. With the Tata Manza Club Class, we are once again the first to introduce features never seen in its class.”
