The Vista brand in the Indica range was launched in the year 2008 as a classier and upmarket option for the growing hatchback market in India. With changes to the exterior design as well as the interiors and new engine options, the Vista did enjoy success for a while among half a dozen other rivals. However, over time, with better and more modern options available in market, namely, the Ford Figo, Nissan Micra and Maruti’s new Swift among others, it was time Tata gave the Vista a much needed upgraded. For starters, it does away with the ‘Indica’ brand name and is purely being promoted as the ‘Vista’ standalone brand now. Tata is backing up the product with strong online campaigns and a brilliantly made website and is obviously trying to promote the new Vista among the younger generation. Pricing, as usual has been the case with other Tata products, is also Vista’s strong point. So, is this car worth a very serious look now? Bunny Punia spends two days with Tata’s latest in and around Pune and surely seems impressed!

Pros GR8 Value For Money

Cons No ABS

Hi, I have taken a test drive of both quadrajet aura and saffire aura. The choice was very easy, Quadrajet is the car to own. Driving on the roads is like cutting knife thru butter. There is no difference even when AC is on full blast. Buy the car with anti-rust treatment, teflon coating, suede seat covers, mp20 sunfilm from OEM (VKOOL), Keyless entry--remote all this will cost Rs 20k extra. Now u have fully loaded car that will change everything. good luck..i hve already booked one)

WAS THAT A JOKE FROM THE TATA MOTORS
Posted on 5 Jan 09 at 10:33 pm

Pros A POWERFUL AND STYLIST HEADLAMP

Cons EVERYTHING REST U CAN THINK ABOUT

What were they thinking about I have purchased a Vista Aqua 4 months back and there was not a single day that i had some problem with the car. Within a month the car brake failed while driving it on the highway almost killing me with a collission. next the plastic trims of the interiors are already coming off and all the rubber packing detached itself from the doors. The cabin noise is high with all the wondows rolled up and the ac gives a mechanical rubbing noise. The hub cap are poorly fitted and i had to get all the 4 renewed as the original one keep coming off. the list can be endless. it is just an advice that if u r considering buying the car please weigh your options by considering the other car in this segment u wll be saving urself a lot of money and frequent trips to the workshop

Vista Saffire ... SIMPLY ROCKS
Posted on 26 Jun 09 at 7:19 pm

Pros Smoooth ride ; Comfort ; Space ; Looks

Cons can't place anything on the dash board becase of it's curved styling.

I bought my Vista Saffire Aura (Solar Orange) from Pratham Automobiles - Pune. The car was delivered to me on 14th May 2009 (within a week of placing final order). As on today, I have clocked 1100 km in city traffic with AC on !! The milege has been 13 km in city traffic with AC on and my first-car driving experice of shifting gears and accelerator. Did not take it out for a long ride highway. So don't know what will be the milege there. Fortunate to get free insurance worth 10K , mud flats, door mats, service booklet worth couple of thousand free of cost ;-). I could have probably bargained more for free filming and anti-rust treatment in these recession times but well there is no end to human desires ;-) . The whole process of sales , The after-sales service has been excellent. There is always a very obidient service personal from Pratham available to attend to my needs whenever I visited them. I also had one of the TATA company professionals visiting me to explain some of the features and clarify my doubts. That was in response to my mail through customer care web-site. The whole process of after sales service is very professional and very plesant. One thing I would like to warn everyone is if any one says that their car doesn't make sounds like this and like that , but it is found in your Vista...... then just don't go by their word. Better conform their saying by sitting in their vehicle. Get a feel of the same and then make a decision whether whatever they say is true or not. Or-else you might end up running behind service personal unnecessarily. It happened to me. The perfomance and comfort in the car JUST rocks. The ride quality is too smooth. One of my friends who owns a Swift VDI commented that the smoothness and ride comfort that he found in my Vista is not found in his vehicle. This is not my opinion , but opinion of a Swift VDI owner ;-). Time to feel proud Mr. Tata. The gas filled shock absorbers are just too smooth even for my pregnant wife. The rear seat leg-room ... oh... man it is just amazing. My 65 yrs old mom feels that finally there is a hatch-back which has respect for elderly parents who usually prefer to sit at the rear seats. You may note that I had travelled in rear seats of Swift, A-Star, Wagon-R and Alto - and none of them could give me such a great comfort as Vista . Ofcouse , you might find that comfort in sedans only. But Vista is hatch-back so I am comparing with other hatch-backs. Value For My hard-earned Money --> Integrated audio with USB, all power windows, height adjustible seat, titlable steering, Engine Immobilizer, Extended Warranty, Warning buzzers ... oh ... man the list just continues. All these EXTRA FEATURES for an amazingly competitive price. Planning to go for a long ride sometime soon . Will update about that experience later. Finally ... Thanks to TATA for providing such an excellent vehicle at such a competitive price. Keep going. Wish you great success to you.

Posted on 18 Jun 09 at 1:25 am

Pros Good looks, Comfort, Excellent Ride

Cons Poor Fuel Economy, Bad Gear shift

I bought Indica Vista after selling the Indica V2. My friends and family suggested me to go for the Swift DDis but after extensive expert reviews on various auto websites for 2 months and BS motoring recommended it, I decided to buy Indica Vista Aura Quadrajet on 3rd April,2009. I wanted a family car with the driver driving it 80% of the times. BUT I AM NOT A HAPPY OWNER My experience Pros 1) Indica name is a misnomer. Its not a Taxi dear, like the old V2!! This is the reason why Vista is NOT AVAILABLE IN WHITE COLOUR- to dis-associate itself from the image of a white Taxi. Also it is not being sold under the Taxi quota. Good for the car's brand image. 2) Cabin is silent, shockers are very good. 3) Road grip is excellent. I drove it at 140kmhr on the NH2 to Calcutta. The ride was excellent. Braking needs a little betterment. 4) Rear seat comfort too good 5) Fine audio system..but not meant for Rock and Pop lovers!! 6) Good Aircon 7) NO need to shift gears frequently during jams..through congested areas. 3rd gear with A.C works fine, absolutely!! Cons 1) Queaking sound from the door handles from the first day due to loose fittment. 2) The rubber lining on the rear doors gave way after a month. the doors need effort to be closed. 3) The rear plastic tray and the steering nose assembly has been fitted very poorly. The Ac vents have sharp edges!! 4)BAD GEARSHIFT. Simply no match with the Swift. I drive it 20% of the times and I still want to enjoy the rear seat. Thoretically it should be a better combination than Swift beacause both the gearbox and engine in Vista are from Fiat!! BUT NO!! I DONT KNOW!! may be the sticky klutch plate of the TATA is the culprit!! 5) POOR FUEL ECONOMY!! highways-15.5kmltr and city-14kmltr only!!(with A.C) i was expecting at least 19 and 17 respectively going by the mileage of Swift which has the same engine. 6) And yes, The TATA dealers are landlords and not hardworking businessmen. They still have this "take it or leave it" attitude when their cars are not selling well. Just imagine what would have happened if they would have managed the sales figures close to SWIFT!!. I dont know how much mileage other Users are getting!! Can anyone please comment on this issue. CONCLUSION Maruti was considered for its Petrol cars, It had failed miserably with Zen Diesel. But see its success with DDIS!! TATA means diesel. It still has little success with the petrol Indica Vista Saffire(selling very few nos.) Vista has been launched in reaction to Swift DDis after 2 years but I am sad to say, Vista is still a few notches below the Swift overall. Vista has much more features for the price but with the poor fuel economy and lesser re-sale value than Swift(I m sure about that), the price advantage is actually not there. NOR is the driving pleasure!! TATA should have tried to give a Skoda Fabia at the price of SWift rather than TRYING to give a SWIFT at a lesser price. Mr.TATA please understand Bharat mein sirf sasta nahin, acha bikta hai!! I am sure the sales figures of Vista quadrajet are nothing compared to Swift. It is rarely visible on the roads after almost 8 months of launch!! !!GOD BLESS THE SALES OF VISTA!! Amit Agarwal(amitonline74@yahoo.co.in) Dhanbad Jharkhand
