Built thick and rigid, and powered by a truck’s turbodiesel, the Tata Indigo subcompact sedan is the heaviest in its class.  She sounds like a minibus gone throaty, but she’s fast, and she’s nimble.  Her undercarriage engineering harks back to when front-wheel-drive was still a new, premium layout–something to make the most of with independent suspension in front, and in back. She’s what you’d look for when robustness matters more than mere refinement.
