Editorial Test Drive Review of Tata Vista D90

Tata Motors is now getting more aggressive than ever and that is a great sign. Just after the launches of the Manza Club Class and the Safari Storme, it is time for the Vista hatch to get a dose of more power. Just like the 90hp Fiat Punto hatchback, the Vista now gets the 88bhp 1.3-litre Quadrajet diesel motor which makes it one of the fastest in its class and a real hot hatch. It has Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) technology the D90′s engine uses VGT technology. The D90 engine is mated to a Euro-tech 2 gearbox and does 0-100 kmph in 15.5 seconds and a top speed of 158 KMPH. The engine that resides under the hood may be the same block that Fiat dropped in the Punto, but this Quadrajet90 variant pumps out 200Nm of peak torque all the way from 1750- 3000 rpm. This does come handy when driving in traffic. In fact, the in 4th gear and 50 km/hr the engine barely revs past 2000 rpm. The awesome torque may be the highlight of the new Vista D90 however, power figures are equally impressive. 90PS of maximum performance is achieved at 4000 rpm and with 200 torques pulling on the hatchback, D90 catapults quite cleanly.

The suspension on the car has been tweaked to handle the extra power. There is still a fair bit of body roll but even on F1 race track the car felt rather composed. You do feel the ABS kick-in when you brake as it tugs the steering wheel a bit. The steering is decently weighted and precise for a car this size. The 5-speed gearbox is smooth but with long throws. Tata has made the Vista more sporty and there is a new front bumper, side skirts and a roof spoiler. You also get some wicked new colour options. Also to mark out the Quadrajet 90, all of them will come painted with a black painted roof. We must say all these changes have made the design more aggressive now and one look will mean you are driving the sportiest version of the Vista. On the inside the changes are more apparent especially when you sit in the drivers seat. The big change is the moving of the instrument cluster from the centre to the driver side. There is also a driver information system which gives you a lot of info.

A small digital screen provides an instant update on mileage, average fuel consumption, distance-to-empty, ambient temperature and a digital clock. There is a touchscreen multimedia system which offers GPS navigation features like adjustable day & night mode, saved destination database, voice instruction guidance and optimal route mode. It comes with a multi-media DVD player and Blue5 technology (pair upto 5 mobile phones through Bluetooth connectivity). Also along with the performance on offer you get a fuel economy of 21.12 KMPL. Tata Vista D90 is available in five colours – Ultra Violet (new), Porcelain White, Spice Red, Cavern Grey and Jet Silver — and 2 trim levels – D90 VX and D90 ZX+. Despite all the features and performance Tata Motors have kept the price competitive and have priced it at Rs 5.99 lakh (VX) and Rs 6.83 lakhs (ZX+) ex-showroom Delhi. These prices if compared with the 90hp Fiat Punto come as Rs 1 lakh cheaper! With all this the Vista is now a hot hatch but also an affordable one. For a detailed analysis read below...

Tata Vista D90 Handling Braking & Safety

The suspension on the car has been tweaked to handle the extra power. There is still a fair bit of body roll but even on F1 race track the car felt rather composed.

When it comes to safety there are dual front SRS airbags, crumple zones, side intrusion beams, engine immobilizer, central locking and keyless entry ensure complete safety. The car comes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) technology, as a standard fitment, ensuring better stability and steerability under all braking conditions.


What we like

Improved handling.


What we don't like

Still has body roll.
