Tata Vista summary

The second-generation model of the Tata Indica, called the Vista, was introduced in India in 2008. However, Tata did not discontinue the Indica V2, and placed the Vista as its premium alternative. Tata's idea with the Vista was simple, to create a vehicle as affordable as the Maruti 800 and as spacious as the Ambassador. But the taxi image associated with the Indica didn't prove well for the Vista, as it was soon regarded as an overpriced hatchback. Consequently, the Vista faced extremely little demand in India. Tata launched the facelifted Vista in 2011. Moreover, Tata also introduced the D90 variant of the Vista in 2013- a punchy 90hp variant of the 1.3 l multijet diesel engine. Tata also brought Vista Tech in India in 2014 with more premium features. However, none could change the fate of the Vista, and finally, Tata had to pull the plug on the Vista in 2015. The Vista was replaced by the Bolt, which the Tiago ultimately succeeded. The last recorded price of the Vista was between Rs 4.10 to 6.82 lakhs Ex-showroom.

The Tata Vista came with a multitude of engine options. This included a 1.2 litre (1172 cc) Safire Inline four petrol engine that churned out 64 ho and 96 Nm, 1.4 litre (1405 cc) TDI Inline four diesel engine that produced 70 hp and 135 Nm, 1.4 litre (1368 cc) Safire Inline four petrol engine that produced 89hp and 116 Nm, 1.3 litre (1248 cc) multijet diesel engine that was available in two states of power tunes - 75 hp, 190 Nm and 89 hp, 200 Nm respectively.

The Vista was available only with a manual transmission.

Tata Vista EXPERT REVIEWS

The Indica Vista was Tata's offering in the premium hatchback segment. The Vista was placed at a segment above the standard Indica V2 and offered better performance, space, and practicality, and plush inferiors with plenty of features. The Vista was a great blend of comfort and performance. The suspension setup on the Vista was spot on, the ride quality was impressive, and the vehicle ranked high in terms of comfort. Meanwhile, this didn't compromise on performance. The Vista had a host of engine options on offer, but it was the D90 that is the perfect choice for all enthusiasts. The D90 variant had a powerful90 ps 1.3 litre fiat sourced multijet diesel engine and changed under the skin - including suspension setup and steering. However, handling was still a bit dull.

When fared against its rivals, the Vista stands tall with a lot of advantages. It had many features on offer, including some segment-first like the touch screen infotainment system, automatic climate control, navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity. Furthermore, the Vista's cabin was extremely spacious and felt quite upmarket. The ride quality, too, was brilliant, with good cabin insulation as well. It also had performance-packed engines on offer.

The Tata Indica Vista was one of the most featured loaded vehicles in its class. The top of the line Vista trim had features like 5inch touch screen infotainment system with voice-guided navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, steering mounted controls, Power window, alloy wheels, fog lamps, rear wiper, two way lumbar support adjustability for the driver, and automatic climate control. The Indica Vista was a great hatchback to drive with its performance-packed engines, especially the D90. The Vista had ARAI claimed fuel efficiency of 16.7 km/l to 22.3 km/l.

The Vista was an underrated vehicle that was an excellent option for people looking for sensible hatchback options at a two-way premium price point.

In terms of safety, the Vista had all the basic safety features like dual airbags, ABS with EBD. However, it scored only 3 stars in the safety crash test.
