Lots of space, but quality can be improved.
The interior of the CS has swathes of grey, livened up a little by, er, different shades of grey and a fake aluminium centre console. The sea of grey makes the cabin look a bit smaller than it really is. But the grey interior is only found on the diesel variants since the petrols have a beige interior.The passengers will have no cause for complaint with the space on offer, but the driver will not agree. The steering wheel is slightly too large and at too van/truck-like an angle for comfort, the pedals are placed awkwardly and the gear shift lever is too short. If you're a tall driver, you're caught between making space for your legs so that your ankles don't hurt on long drives, and keeping your arms at a comfortable angle so that you don't have to stretch to the steering wheel and shift lever. The switches for the power windows are also placed in an awkward position, ahead of the shift lever at its base. The seats are supremely comfortable though and have the right amount of bolster for long distance travel. The rear seat comfort on the Indica / Indigo range is still hard to beat.
The plastics are shiny and hard-wearing, and we wish they were at least a few soft-touch bits at points of contact. The fit and finish of the plastic could have been so much better with a little attention to detail and panel fit, but at the price, we don't think one should be complaining. The space on offer is really very good for the size of the car, with good legroom and headroom for the occupants. There aren't enough places to keep things like change, phones and wallets. The front door pockets are wide, but they won't hold large bottles. The rear doors don't have pockets, but they house ashtrays. The boot is not much larger than a hatchback's, and the usable space is intruded upon by the suspension's strut towers. Some of the stalks and plastic bits feel worse than some of the older Indicas now and we wish that Tata could get the plastics quality spot-on once and for all.
