Tata Philippines Updates Indigo with New Safety Features for 2016
India’s first fully indigenous sedan, the Tata Indigo gets a safer upgrade to go with its frugal diesel performance for 2016.
The Tata Indigo is positioned as a comfortable, spacious sedan in the C-segment. Developed on Tata Engineering’s car platform, the Indigo is offered with a 1.4-liter turbocharged diesel engine with 70 horsepower and 135 Nm of torque from as low as 2,500 rpm.
This new powertrain (the in-house 475 TCIC Diesel), the 2016 Indigo comes with front and rear independent suspension as well as larger 14-inch alloy wheels. The long wheelbase with a semi-forward profile helps maintain a compact overall length and large interior space without compromising the maneuverability of the car in tight traffic conditions.
And for safety, the 2016 Tata Indigo is standard equipped with dual SRS airbags, ABS, and side impact beams.
With these traits in mind, Tata Motors Philippines is positioning the Tata Indigo as the perfect vehicle for entrepreneurs who want to enter the booming car-sharing app service such as Uber or Grab Car. In addition, it makes for a good fleet, service vehicle, or even taxi cab.
