TATA has introduced an additional, limited-edition variant of its Indica hatch as an added-value offering.

The new model, known as the Indica Flash, is based on the Indica LGi model, with several distinguishing features and significant additions to the list of standard equipment.

The Flash is now specified well above the standard specification of its main competitors in the market. At R124 995, it is only R6 000 higher than the standard Indica.

“We are confident that the Indica Flash special edition is going to be a success as it is a true value-for-money offering aimed at first-time buyers and those with a limited budget,” said Kyri Michael, the CEO of Accordian Investments which markets and distributes Tata passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in SA.

People will be able to identify the model with its bold black stripes, incorporating the Flash logo, running along the bottom of the doors. The steel wheels have also been replaced with spoked alloy mag wheels.

However, the scope of the big upgrade comes once one sits inside the Indica Flash. Firstly, there are leather seats with the Flash logo appearing on the top of the front seats, while the steering wheel has a soft leather grip. An audio system with USB and hands-free Bluetooth capabilities has also been added.

The Indica Flash is powered by a 1,4-litre engine which delivers 56 kW and drives the front wheels through a five-speed gearbox. Claimed overall fuel consumption is 6,5 litres/100km. It has a three-year/100 000 km warranty and a two-year/45 000 km service plan plus roadside assistance.
