Editorial Test Drive Review of Tata Vista
Tata Vista Interiors
The changes to the new Vista are not limited to the exteriors. Step in and you immediately notice the new color treatment which now is a mix of black with Sahara Beige. The usage of black color on the upper parts of the fascia and door pads has been done to prevent soiling in conditions like rainy season. The lower part of the fascia and door pads is finished in a lighter beige color which lends an airy feel to the cabin. Infact, this two tone color treatment makes the interiors look up-market. On the features list, the new Vista now gets steering mounted controls for the audio system and answering / rejecting phone calls across the range except for the base one. You also get electrically operated outside rear view mirrors on the top two trim levels. The top three trim levels also get an integrated audio system with Bluetooth connectivity for upto five phones at a time! Safety has been given importance with the top two versions getting ABS as standard. Air-bags come only in the top end model.
To summarize, the new Vista does come loaded to the brim with features and goodies, however that said, we did realize the omission of simple things like one-touch operation for driver’s window or door-open warning indication in the speedometer console. Space has always been the Vista’s forte and this positive aspect remains! Visibility is good and you really can’t complain much when it comes to hauling around five adults with ease.

Tata Vista Exteriors
Dimension wise, the Vista stands tall and proud among its chief rivals. At 1550 mm high, it is higher than the likes of the Swift, i20, Figo and Polo. On the width front, it fares better than the Figo and Polo. Lastly, with a wheelbase of 2470mm, the Vista scores over the Swift and Polo in this regard. However, what really makes the new Vista stand out is the complete front design change. It now looks similar to its elder sibling, the Manza. New triple barrel headlamps, new grille and fog lamps now lend a classier and modern touch to the appearance up front. Apart from this, there are a lot of chrome inserts all around depending on the trim level you choose. At the rear, the tail lamps get a black mask effect and there is a horizontally running pearl black finish strip under the windshield. The Tata logo too is different and now the Vista range will only be denoted by new version names like LS, LX, VX and ZX for the diesel and GLS, GLX, GVX and GZX for the petrol engine options.
The top end, ZX and GVX models, gets new 15-inch smoked black alloy wheels. The new Vista is now available in a couple of new color options and the one you see on this page, porcelain white, looks sporty and refreshing. The overall paint quality and levels seems to have gone up as well.
Tata Vista Exteriors Details
Tata Vista Front design
Tata has grafted the nose of the Manza onto the Vista; so when viewed head-on, it looks like its bigger sibling. The chrome grille and large, triple-barrel headlamps give it a more upmarket look. Compared to many other hatchbacks available in the market, the Tata Indica Vista has better external design.
Tata Vista Rear design
The changes at the rear of the Tata Indica Vista is not that much from the other Vistas , however, are very subtle and the only difference is the addition of plastic cladding below the rear windscreen which looks quite nice but its easy to miss, and lightly smoked tail-lamps.
Tata Vista Side profile
Vista side looks stylish it has body coloured rub rails added to the side.
Tata Vista Ground Clearance
Vista has a ground clearance of 165mm.
Tata Vista Engine & Performance
The Vista continues to come with four different engine options and mechanically, these remain un-touched. On the petrol front, you get to choose from either the 65PS Safire motor or the more powerful 90PS Safire engine. The smaller one has decent amount of torque and until unless you want to drive quick, this engine won’t really disappoint you. The problem comes in the fuel economy – with an ARAI rated figure of just 16.7kmpl, the Safire 65 is one of the most inefficient petrol hatchbacks around. The more powerful 90PS option however is in a world of its own. It generates 38% more power and 21% more torque than its smaller sibling and least to say, rewards the driver with a very good drive. It is peppy and can prove to be a fun to drive vehicle for the enthusiast. Like its younger petrol sibling, this engine too performs poor on the fuel economy front with an ARAI rated figure of just 13.7kmpl.
Most Vistas though will be sold in the diesel avatars. The TDI motor is still on sale, though only for BS-III markets. It generates decent power and torque and due to its cheap construction, makes the Vista TDI a very good value for money buy. However, we feel, the one to opt for it’s the top of the line Fiat derived Quadrajet engine generates more power and torque inspite of having a smaller displacement. It also has a very impressive ARAI claimed figure of 22.3kpl – this is remarkable considering that the Vista is a big and a heavy hatchback.
The Quadrajet engine scores very high as far as low end engine speed response is concerned. This means that in city traffic, you don’t really have to work on the gears or the gas pedal to keep moving. Out on the highways, it also feels relaxed at triple digit cruising speeds. All the four engine options are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox which has pretty good shift action. It is on the harder side but we didn’t face any issues whatsoever during the two days we had the car with us for. The clutch has been made lighter and is a huge improvement for typical city traffic jams!

Tata Vista Handling Braking & Safety
On the handing front, it’s true that you really can’t play with the Vista like the way you can with some of the other hatchbacks out there. There is a certain degree of body roll and taking curves or corner at high speeds has the tyres squealing and car unstable. However, seldom will a typical owner ever subject the car to such antics and in typical day to day driving, the Vista does the job perfectly well. It has got ABS and airbags.
Tata Vista Handling Braking & Safety Details
Tata Vista Handling
The steering has better feel too, thanks to tweaks to the hydraulic valves in the power steering system. However, it still lacks the precision and consistency to provide entertaining handling. Also, the steering is a bit too light on the highway and the overall dynamics are still some way off the class benchmark set by European rivals. It is way roomier than others in the class.
Tata Vista Braking performance
Vista uses 240mm of ventilated discs in the front and drums of 200mm at the back. Area of improvement is the brakes which feel a lot better, thanks to a larger 10-inch brake servo thats been introduced.
Tata Vista Safety features
Four top of the line safety & security features like ABS with EBD, dual airbags, crumple zones and side intrusion beams complete safety of the passengers. Features like an engine immobilizer and remote keyless entry will come as standard in the new Tata Indica Vista.
Tata Vista ABS
Vista does have an option for ABS.
Tata Vista Traction control
Vista does not have traction control but it does have an option for EBD.
Tata Vista Comfort & Suspension
The Vista or the even the Indica range for that matter has always been known for its comfortable suspension set-up. The new Vista is no different and goes about absorbing typical bumps and undulations on the road with ease. It isolates the passengers from the happenings outside and you can literally put the Vista into bad sections without having to worry. On the highways, stability is good as well and changing lanes at triple digit speeds doesn’t make the driver nervous. Tata has worked on the steering and made it lighter which makes city community a joy. Driving the Vista at slow speeds doesn’t call for much effort.
Tata Vista Comfort & Suspension Details
Tata Vista Comfort
This car excels in space and comfort. Thanks to the seat height and steering adjust, finding an ideal driving position is easy. The front seats are large and back and thigh support is good too. There is plenty of space for tall passengers but ergonomics could be a bit better. The rear seats are superbly comfortable
Tata Vista Front suspension
The Indica Vista retains the same MacPherson strut in the front which handles potholes very effectively.
Tata Vista Rear suspension
Vista has non-independent rear suspension layout. It shows great composure while dealing with our potholed and rutted roads.
