Despite its persisting problems and issues with build quality, the Tata Indica is sure to go down in Indian automobile history. It is after all the car which made India automobile history in 1998 when it became India’s first indigenously developed passenger. Since its launch Tata Motors has sold well over a million Indica’s which says a lot about the hatchback’s success. Despite competition from better packaged and built hatchbacks from international manufacturers, the Indica retains a strong market share. With prices starting from Rs 3,59,130 to Rs 4,88,648 for the diesel and petrol variants, is the Indica still good enough to warrant a place for itself in the market?
