The big 7

Pilipinas Taj Autogroup Inc., the exclusive distributor of Tata vehicles in the country, has just launched seven heavy-duty eco-diesel models during the Big 7 event held at the Mega Tent in Libis, Quezon City last September 25.

Tata PH unveiled their diesel powered cars, pickups and mini trucks that includes the Indigo sedan, Manza Aura, Indica, Vista Ignis, Xenon XT pickup, Super Ace and Ace. The event was graced by the Ambassador of India to the Philippines.

The Pilipinas Taj says says the Indigo Diesel is a Tata Motors bestseller because of its fuel efficiency and spacious interior cabin. The front styling of the vehicle is designed with the brand's signature chrome smiling grille and teardrop headlights. It is powered by a 1.4-liter turbo diesel engine and fitted with an independent suspension. On the other hand, Tata says the hatchback Indica Diesel features the same amenities along with a sportier look.
