The new Vista shares its front fascia with its elder sibling Manza. The chrome grille and larger triple barreled head lamps make its face more aggressive.
Tata has done justice to its attempt to create a sedan class segment among hatchbacks with the Vista’s new look, best in class interior space and groundbreaking features.
The face of the car is augmented with lavish chrome package - chrome grille, chrome hood strip, chrome lining on the bumper and around the foglamps.
The chrome lines that extend to the C-Pillar don’t go all the way to the rear. Instead, there’s a mirror-polished black garnishing below the rear windshield; a chrome variant of the same would have looked better there.
The higher two variants are equipped with intelligent rear wiper - the front wipers are on and you engage the reverse gear, the rear wiper switches on automatically.
The interior is where the new Vista makes the real difference. Available in four trims, the car offers integrated six-speaker music system with steering-mounted audio controls, USB support and Bluetooth connectivity on all but the base variant.
Tata has added a new feature called Clutch-to-Start, which means you cannot crank the engine unless the clutch is fully depressed; hence there is no risk of re-cranking if engine is already running.
Petrol buyers can choose from 90PS Safire90 and 65PS Safire65, while the diesel line-up consists of a 71PS TDi and a 75PS Quadrajet.
The Tata Vista comes in 4 trim levels- LS/ GLS (base version), LX/ GLX, VX/ GVX and ZX/ GZX (top-end version) and will be offered in 6 colors, Summer Sparkle, Porcelain White, Arctic Silver, Spice Red, Brilliant Blue and Cavern Grey.
Tata has competitively priced the Vista, starting from Rs. 3.88 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) for the Safire petrol range and from Rs. 4.79 lakhs for the Quadrajet diesel range (ex-showroom, Delhi).
