Tata motors are not the one to be left behind in the race for aesthetics and technologies. While last year has seen an intermittent showering of refreshed cars from almost all major auto makers, Tata has come up with its own. Manza, a premium sedan from the stable of Tata Motors, will now sport a refreshed look. The latest offering will have dual-tone interiors with a little tweak to its exteriors. Tata Manza deploys the Quadrajet diesel and 90PS Safire petrol engines. A first in its class with regards to the headroom, legroom and width is something the Manza can boast about. It also is equipped with various security and safety features like airbags ABS, steering wheel that absorbs energy, for side impact a door intrusion beam, auto locking for multistage drive away, collapsible steering, rear demister to ensure overall safety.
Tata Manza Elan which is the top-end version of the Manza series, come with a range of features like beige and burgundy interiors, alloy wheels which are dual toned, weather strip garnished with chrome, fog lamps, and the latest exclusive and premium Tyrian wine colour. Other high- tech attributes of the Manza Elan is the “Follow me Home headlamps” which stays illuminated for one minute after switching off the engine and the illumination can be extended by half a minute more by pressing the button an additional time.
Propelled by the insights from the customers, another feature that was added is “Delayed power window”. This helps in rolling up the window even after removing the key from the ignition by the touch to the switch meant for power windows.
