Spied – Fully undisguised Tata Indigo eCS facelift continues testing

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Launched at the 2008 Auto Expo as India’s first sub-4m sedan, the Tata Indigo eCS has lost its sheen and it badly needs an upgrade.

Tata has been testing a mildly updated car for the last few months and our friends at Motorbash.com have managed to catch the car on test once again.

The test mule does not carry any camouflage, but then there is nothing that has changed significantly to be hidden.

The front grill now gets new detailing, it gets a dash of chrome which encloses the Tata logo. The front bumper is revised and the fog lamps are now enclosed within new body colored housings. The headlamps now have a smoked effect.

The updated car gets a new set of alloy wheels and a dual tone bumper is the highlight of the rear. The rest of the exterior remains the same. We expect mild improvements to be made to the interior.

The grille, headlights, foglights, wheels and rear bumper will change on the facelift. Shown here is the current car for reference.

Powertrain options however are likely to remain the same. The Indigo eCS is powered by a 1.2 litre 65 bhp petrol and a 1.4 litre 70 bhp diesel engine. The latter’s fuel efficiency is rated at 25kmpl by ARAI.

A lot is happening in the sub four metre space. The Honda Amaze has just landed while the Mahindra Verito Vibe is on its way in the following weeks. The facelift for the Tata Indigo eCS at this juncture seems to be a sensible move.
