Tata Motors launched Vista, the next generation car in the Indica series, in August 2008. Vista is nothing, but the revamped version of the Tata's first passenger car - Indica.

Tata Indica Vista truly fulfills the needs of those Indian buyers who expect their cars to be spacious, stylish, and graceful.

The petrol-driven models of Tata Indica Vista are powered by 1.2L CVCP Safire engine, which produces a maximum power of 65 bhp 5500 rpm and torque of 96 Nm @ 3000 rpm.

Design And Comfort
The contemporary exteriors of Tata Indica Vista make a bold style statement. Adding to the beauty of the vehicle are its new central character line on the hood and sharp crease lines on the door below the beltline. The petal shaped headlights also look stunning. The 'trademark' smiling front grille and tall taillights make the car stand out from the crowd. A comfortable ride for five people is assured by Tata Indica Vista.

The dual tone grey and beige interiors of Tata Indica Vista are elegant and spacious. The instrument cluster is positioned in the centre of the dashboard. This enhances the in-driving passenger involvement and improves driving visibility. There is a utility space in the floor console under the seat. The deep glove box is spacious enough to store a number of small items.

Ride And Handling

Transverse stiffness is enhanced by a sub-frame construction. A better ride, comfortable drive and improved handling are facilitated by the new twist beam suspension and gas-filled shock absorbers.
