The Indica vista will come with three engines - Safire, Quadrajet and TDI. Of these 1.2L Safire (petrol) and 1.3L Quadrajet (Diesel) will be sourced from Fiat. Fiat currently uses the Fire petrol and quadrajet diesel engine in its Palio. However the 1.4L TDI mill is the same unit which currently powers existing Indica. The Indica vista 1.2 saffire mill churns out 65PS of peak power and 96Nm of peak torque. The indica vista quadrajet 1.3L motor pumps out 75PS of max power and 190Nm of maximum torque at 1750rpm. Remember this same engine propels the Swift DDIs in the same tune. However the swift still holds some advantage with better power to weight ratio. All the engines of vista is mated with a 5 speed transmission.

Dimensions - Indica Vista:

The new generation Indica is spacious than the current Indica larger dimensions (length - 3795 mm, width - 1695 mm, height - 1550 mm and wheelbase- 2470 mm). Fuel tank capacity of the new vista is 37 litres .

Features of the new tata Indica Vista include seating capacity for five, power –assisted rack and pinion steering, independent front suspension and semi independent rear suspension. Safety enhancers include warning buzzers and three-point ELR sea belts.

t is a major disappointment that neither ABS or airbags are offered in the Indica Vista. Considering the traffic situation on our roads and lawlessness, this is a major sin in my opinion. There are Indica models already offering airbags and ABS, so it reflects badly on Tata to offer a newer, better and more sophisticaled version in the Vista without them. Typical of Tata, I am sure they would introduce these a few months down the line - and that makes it worse.

The Indica Vista comes with a 24 months (75000 km) standard warranty. Seven variants of the Indica Vista priced from Rs.3.49 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the 1.2L petrol Safire at the low end to Rs.4.88 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the top end 1.3L diesel Quadrajet. The Indica V2 will continue to be sold alongside the Vista and amongst both models, buyers will have a wide price range to choose from between Rs 2.6 lakhs to Rs.4.88 lakhs.
