Despite being a better car in many aspects than many others, Tata’s flagship Manza has not been able to notch up sales as Tata would have liked. For some unknown reasons, Manza remained neglected by potential buyers. It seems, segment-first features never really impressed them. So, to increase the numbers and to make the Manza an even more considerable option, Tata Motors has decided to add some fervor  to its existing lineup and bring out a new trim level. The existing trim levels will also be renamed conventionally.

The trim levels will be called as:

  • LS (Aqua)
  • LX (Aura)
  • VX (Aura ABS)
  • EX (Elan)
  • EXL (New)

Yes, you got it right, EXL is the new trim here and resides at the top of all. Besides, Tata Motors will include new exciting features to attract more attention from the potential customers this festive season. This new and feature-loaded line-up will be called as The Club Class. This Club Class includes the introduction of the 75 PS 1.3-Litre Diesel Engine. This is the same Fiat MultiJet engine that powers up the Vista, Swift, DZire and Punto. This will power up the base LS (Aqua) variant and will definitely help Tata to see an increase in sales figures.

If you are confused, current Tata Manza is available only with a 90PS 1.3L multijet diesel and a Safire 90PS Petrol engine from Fiat.
