This B+ Segment car is rated the best in space availability and comforts in its hatchback segment. The Smart looks would attract a lot of eye balls while the affordability factor with amazingly latest features makes Tata Indica Vista a truly desirable car. The price range is between 3.5 lakh to Rs 4.5 lakh which is again helpful for Tata Motors of proving its metal in the middle range variants of car.
The expectations from the engine specifications are always high in case of Tata Motors. Tata Indica Vista is available with petrol engine as well as diesel engine option. The 4 cylinder, Drivetech 4 displacement is really an added benefit. The mileage offered by the stunning car is around 14 kmpl in city traffic while an amazing 18 kmpl on highways. This economic vehicle offers a Maximum Power output of 64 Bhp at 5500 rpm and a Maximum Torque of 96 Nm at 3000 rpm. It is launched with a gearing option of 5 speed Manual transmission and is having a tyre size of 175/70 R13. The interesting feature is the inclusion of Power steering and the Kerb weight is around 1035 kgs. It takes 16.4 seconds to reach a speed of 100 from rest.
The external appearance of Tata Indica Vista is stylish and brings charm to its hatchback origin. The dynamic front grille is superb and carries the Tata logo perfectly. The appearance of head lamps is imposing and the front fog lamps are with clear lens. Body colour bumpers bring charm which is carried forward by body coloured OVRM’s and manual both side door mirrors. Tata Indica Vista extends to a total length of 3795 mm. This spacious 5 seater has a width of 1695 mm and a height of 1550. For Indian roads the ground clearance of 165 mm is sufficient and the small turning radius of 5 metres is superbly amazing.
The interior designing is done intelligently. The front seats are adjustable manually and the spacious legroom will not disappoint our tall occupants. The rear seats are the most comfortable so far in this hatchback segment. However the door pockets would have offered more space but it’s compensated with a large glove box. The classic Fabricated Seats and the dual tone Dashboard add glory to the new Tata Indica Vista. It offers a boot space of 232.00 litres which is satisfactory. The Air Conditioning System works well and the choice for power windows is still an option upon customers. However, there is no inbuilt entertainment music system.
Overall verdict for the new Tata Indica Vista is quite good; it would surely attract buyers due to its modern engineering style combined in such a comfortable way that the occupants are just flattered with interior space and comfort. The basic safety features are lacking like ABS and Airbags but the totally newly designed platform provide the overall safety to its ever satisfied owners.
