Tata Motors launches Tata Indigo DiCOR sedan version

Tata Motors today announced the launch of its entry-level common rail diesel (DiCOR) offering in the sedan range with the Indigo LS version at Rs5.25 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

The 70PS sedan delivering a maximum torque of 140Nm @ 1800 - 3000 rpm comes equipped with heating and airconditioning as well as power steering. This model also features beige coloured interiors along with body coloured bumpers, and is being offered in six attractive colours.

The 1.4 litre common rail diesel engine was first offered on the company's premium saloon - the long wheel base Indigo XL (at Rs6.15 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the classic trim level). It then appeared as a top-end offering on the normal Indigo (the LX version) at an ex-showroom price of Rs5.85 lakhs. Now with the Indigo LS DiCOR at Rs5.25 lakhs, it becomes the country's most attractively priced common rail diesel offering amongst sedans.

The Tata Indigo range has been a best seller in the entry mid-size segment since its launch in December 2002, and has sold over 150,000 cars till date.
