Tata Indica Vista

The New Indica Vista, after loads of testing is finally being launched soon. You can check the details of the car by checking out the pictures in this post.

I really don’t understand why Tata has used the word Vista for this model. Windows Vista has been a step backward for Microsoft. Also Tata has got a penchant for copying names from American computer companies. First the Nano from Apple and now this. I really don’t like this car for several reasons. Design seems to be copied from a Peugeot, not that’s a bad thing, but why didn’t they copy the interiors too. The mid mounted instrument cluster looks a thing of the past, and the quality is typical Tata. Look at that steering wheel, looks bad. The tail lamps look the same as all Tata cars, from the Indigo to the Nano with a minor colour change. Tata you just acquired Jaguar, didn’t you?

Tata has named the top end model Aura, which again is not impressive. Hopefully mechanically this car should be good. Tata should have improved on the gearbox and handling. But wait, they are copy pasting Fiats fantastic 1.3 Litre multijet engine with a change of name, Quadra Jet. Also on the line up will be 1.2 Litre Petrol and  a re-worked version of 1.4 Litre Turbocharged IDI engine, for the Taxi segment, me thinks. It does get a host of features not seen in the segment like lumbar support (front seats), height adjustable driver seat, tilt adjustable steering wheel, a dual din audio system with USB and AUX input and a remote control, front and rear fog lamps as standard in the Aura. There will be slight price hike over the current Indica.
