The taxi segment has been under the dominance of Tata cars such as Tata Indica, Tata Sumo, Tata Indigo and Tata Indigo eCS but car makers such as Maruti and Toyota are gradually increasing their numbers in taxi car sales. Notably, Tata Indica has long been tagged as a cabbie and Tata Indigo XL presented immense space for occupants and storage and had almost rules the taxi segment until Maruti launched the Maruti Swift Dzire Tour and Toyota welcomes applications for Toyota Etios sedan.

The Toyota Etios Liva dampened sales of Tata Indica, Toyota Etios that of Indigo, but Tata seems to be aggressive with the taxi segment. In order to make Tata Indica more fit for the segment, it is bringing the Indica CR4 to the market and was caught testing it in a highly camouflaged state. The Indica XL is more like the Indigo XL in its looks from the front but with a hatch at the back. Thus it can be said that it is a merger of Indigo XL and Indica to make it Indica XL.

The Indica XL will be powered by the 1.4 L CR4 engine that has become the most popular and most performing engine by the car maker. Where it is high on performance front, it is fuel efficient as well. It is expected that the Indica XL will have a mileage score of 25 kmpl just like the Indica eV2. Power of 90 PS will make it compete with the recently launched Fiat Punto Sport that claims itself to be the most powerful hatchback. The Indica XL launch could be scheduled this year with the Tata Safari Storme. Industry experts believe that introduction of the 90 PS, Indica XL that offers more space even in hatchback body styling will help return Tata Indica the lost title of being the best selling taxi car in India.
