Sipradi Trading, the sole authorised distributor of Tata in Nepal, took the wraps off an upgraded version of its popular sedan car, the Tata Manza, on Sunday. According to the company, the newly unveiled car is entirely a new class of car in which unmatched luxury meets unrivalled performance. The upgraded version of the Tata Manza is available in both diesel and petrol options and in four trim levels—the Tata Manza GLX, GEX, LX and EX.
The car has been designed for the discerning new-age customer, and is an enticing combination of first-in-class human-machine interface, best-in-class cabin space and contemporary styling, said Sipradi Trading in a statement. “Taking forward its luxurious lineage, the new Tata Manza has been launched with a powerful positioning of the Club Class Sedan since it set a new benchmark for sedan buyers in the mid-sized car segment with its plush interiors and state-of-the-art technology features, making it the most premium sedan in its class,” said the company.
Commenting on the launch of the Manza, Gurinder Singh, country manager, Nepal and Bhutan, Tata Motors, said, “The New Tata Manza with its best-in-class features like the fully automatic air conditioning, first-in-class touchscreen multimedia player and GPS navigation system will be loved by customers in Nepal.”
The Tata Manza Club Class is powered by the internationally-acclaimed 90 PS Quadrajet diesel and Safire petrol engines. Tata has claimed that the Quadrajet diesel engine delivers an impressive mileage of 21.02 kpl, while the Safire petrol is certified for a mileage of 13.7 kpl.
The Tata Manza’s touchscreen brings GPS navigation, multi-media DVD player, Blu5 and other such functionalities all through a multi-colour 6.2-inch high resolution display at the touch of a finger. Soft feel interior enhances the luxurious ambience of the Tata Manza’s cabin space. A new infinity contrast roof and new eight split-spoke alloys add further class to the exteriors. These new additions have been further embellished in chrome, endowing the Tata Manza Club Class with a character which makes it stand apart.
The car’s safety features include a collapsible steering column, anti-lock braking system (ABS) and dual frontal airbags, among others. Instead of the usual red line on the tachometer, the Critical Rev Indicator needle turns red when the engine crosses a critical rpm. The engine immobilizer and central locking feature are conveniences for additional security.
The new car from Tata’s stable is available in six colours—infinity black, tyrian wine, laser red, castle grey, dew white and jet silver. According to Sipradi Trading, the price of the petrol version will start from Rs 2.44 million while the diesel version will cost upwards of Rs 2.84 million. The Tata Manza Club Class comes with a two-year or 50,000-km warranty, which is considered among the best in the industry.
