The Diesel-Powered Tatas are Here! (w/ Brochure)

Car buyers now have more choices with the arrival of the new Tata Manza Aura and Vista Ignis. Launched recently by the Pilipinas Taj Autogroup, Inc., the official and exclusive distributor of Tata vehicles in the Philippines at their new Cainta showroom along Ortigas Avenue Extension, the Manza Aura and Vista Ignis are powered by the highly efficient and refined Quadrajet diesel engine which promises high fuel efficiency. At the same time, these models were designed with good passenger comfort and worry-free ownership in mind.

In terms of exterior styling, both vehicles stand out with Tata’s signature chrome-tipped ‘smiling’ grille. They come with chrome rub rails and accents, front fog lamps, and three-barreled headlamps for added style. Inside, drivers will love the wheel-mounted controls for the audio system as well as the driver information system that is integrated in the center-mounted instrument cluster. Both the Manza Aura and Vista Ignis have foldable cup holders in the rear seats as well as adjustable lumbar support for both driver and front passenger, obvious signs that Tata prioritized comfort in the design. Additional convenient features include a one-touch driver’s side power window, an integrated audio system with USB and Bluetooth, illuminated keyhole ring, and air conditioning.

The Manza is Tata’s ideal family car with a large trunk that’s perfect for road trips and grocery runs. On the other hand, the Vista is a sportier hatchback with foldable rear seats for those who live active lifestyles. The highly-efficient and refined Quadrajet engine provides 90 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque from as low as 1,750 rpm for the Tata Manza Aura while 75 horsepower and 190 Nm of torque for the Vista Ignis. Both models come with five-speed manual transmission.

Despite the value-oriented pricing, both the Manza Aura and Vista Ignis are equipped with dual front SRS airbags, side-impact protection beams, vented front disc brakes, a collapsible steering column, and ABS with EBD.

The new Tata Manza Aura and Tata Vista Ignis are now available for test drives and reservations at all Tata Motors showrooms nationwide. The Manza Aura is priced at P 738,000 while the Tata Vista Ignis retails for P 678,000. Both models are available in a choice of five colors: Cavern Grey, Porcelain White, Jet Silver, Spice Red, and Infinity Black.


  1. sa ortigas extension po ba or sa marcos highway ang showroom? Di ko po nakita sa ortigas ext yesterday. Tnx!

    1. They have a showroom along Marcos Highway, but the launch was held at their new Cainta showroom located on Ortigas Avenue Extension. It's actually on the lane heading to C5 from Imelda Avenue.

      The quickest way to get there would be to turn right on Felix Avenue (aka Imelda Avenue) and so straight. At the intersection near Robinsons, turn right. It will be on the right side.

    2. OK sir Uly Thanks po!!! - mariyoka

  2. what is the kilometer per liter on the Vista ignis city driving and highway driving? Is there cabin noise when driving the Vista's diesel?

  3. These Tata vehicles are daily beaters in India.. especially the diesel variants. I was assigned in Delhi for a good six years and been all over the country. These Tatas are reliable as well.. surviving the terrible terrain outside of main cities. Also, the Mahindra SUVs are good. I get to see them go to the Himalayas. Mahindra is also a major defense contractor in India for their vehicles. I don't work for these companies.. just giving my observation.

  4. Any detailed review about the Tata brand and Tata Vista Diesel? I'm thinking

  5. I'm interested to know more about these cars... Any feedbacks?

  6. Im waiting for the automatic w diesel engine to come.we will arive?
