Indica vs WagonR vs Santro

By rahul jain on 10 July 2009

Tata indica diesel BS II gives a city mileage of 13-14 with a/c, and a highway mileage of 20 with A/c. But the engine is noisy and vibrations are an issue with diesel. I have also driven WagonR and Santro, both of them are superior to the Indica.

I have no idea abt. the petrol Xeta, but Indica is not really good on aesthetics.Besides i dont expect the Xeta to be vibrationless, as compared to the other two petrol cars.

If economy and internal space is the only criteria, the diesel indica is the clear winner. I havent had any problems with my indica engine, i have it for 4 yrs now, but yes i keep it serviced and oil and coolant changed every 3 months, coz in Delhi's heat of may to august, overheating of engine can be a problem with a/c and in traffic.

Still , if you get a CNG fitment on WagonR or santro , they beat the indica hands down on all deptt., ie, price, economy , mileage, running cost etc., except for internal space.

Take your own decision.
