Tata has a new BS IV ready version of the small sedan ready: The Tata Indigo CS E-Series
If what we see and read is to be believed, Tata Motors is soon launching the Indigo CS sedan in a new avatar named the E Series. This new Indigo CS would have a BS4 Dicor (common rail CR4) engine from the Tata family.
This really is leaked information – Team-BHP was the first one to let everyone know about the E-Series. We talked to Tata Motors, and they did not have a clear answer for us, for now. We hope to get some confirmation and more info about the launch date soon.
Note that this is the little Indigo – the CS compact sedan – not the grown up one.
New features for the Tata Indigo CS E-Series include body-coloured electric wing mirrors with integrated indicators, an all-new front grill and headlamps, reminiscent of the Tata Indigo XL, a two-tone interior, all-new instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity and an automatic gradient climb assist system.
The 1396cc CRDI engine in this new Indigo CS E Series produces 70 bhp and gives 140nm of torque between 1800 – 3000rpm.
The tata Indigo CS E-Series would also come with a 1193 cc petrol engine which makes 65 bhp and 100 Nm of torque.
It would have been more interesting to see the Multi Jet (MJD) Fiat unit which fires the Indigo Vista and Manza on this new Indigo CS E Series.
Both the petrol and diesel versions would be available in 4 colors.
The Tata Indigo CS E-Series BS IV compact sedan is likely to be priced between Rs 4.1 lakh and Rs 4.5 lakh.
This is not a major model upgrade for sure – apart from the engine, there are no huge changes to the car. There is no ABS or airbags, for instance, yet. Update: Oops, said that too fast. There is the so-called Gradient Climb Assist, which ensures the car does not roll back while on an incline. Was this in the Indigo CS earlier? We don’t think so. It is a great convenience, anyway.
