2014 Tata Vista without ‘christmas tree’ taillights rendered

Posted on: Sep 28, 2013 - 9:15am IST

Regular readers would be aware that Tata Motors has commenced testing the 2014 Tata Vista. As part of their Horizonext strategy, Tata would be introducing a comprehensively refreshed Vista next year. We have seen camouflaged test mules on Pune roads and we have also shown you a spy shot of what could be the new front design of the hatchback.

2014 Tata Vista rear rendering

Team BHP member AntlerRoad has now rendered the rear of the 2014 Vista. The major change happens to the taillights, which will no longer sport the ‘christmas-tree’ like arrangement, a design highlight that has been present on the Indica and Vista since their inceptions.

Rear of the current Tata Vista added for comparison.

Instead, the lights are now grouped to the lower portion of the bootlid, which also sees a complete makeover. As for the space on either side of the rear windshield, which earlier had the brake lights, two blackened pillars have been placed.

The number plate holder has also been moved up from the bumper to the bootlid. To compensate for the extra space, the reflectors on the bumper seem newly designed. Based on the rendering here, it seems there are going to be extensive sheet metal changes in the refreshed Vista.

This could be the front of the new 2014 Vista.

However mechanically, the Vista will continue with the same set of engines – the 1.3-liter MultiJet engine in two states of tuning, a 1.2-liter petrol and maybe an upgraded BS4 compliant CR4 engine. Will Tata show the updated Vista at the 2014 Auto Expo in February next year?

    Vista is more like an SUV style body rather then a hatchback, and same thing stands for Ritz. Personally, I liked the first Vista minus the radiator grill, which they could have had made it like prefacelifted Indigo eCSes. They should think of it in line with mini SUV, make it little more wider longer n taller with increased ground clearance; since Vista extreme concept looks over designed and after thought.

    Without the DRL LED cluster this design is outdated even before it enters the showroom. Guys; spend the dam 500 rupees on the DRL and donโ€™t skimp on the 21st century design elements!

      that would be a mahindra’ish treatment. there is no character in that, simply copying international features. in india we don’t even need DRLs as it is a tropical country. all we need is, make the vista with some personality …that’s it…

    That’s much better. The sticky attitude towards borrowing from old models restrained from designing better. Now they should leave those blown -up and rounded sort of design language. I felt those headlamps look like sunk inside. Better they protrude out like Fortuner or Verna…!!

    From purely a design perspective I feel this wouldn’t be good enough for Vista to become a hot selling hatch. I do agree Vista is one of the better hatchbacks available in India with strong mechanicals. It’s very spacious, good excellent level of kit, great engine and easy on the wallet to buy and maintain.

    Having said that, the Horizon Next needs some strong designers to take it forward. The facelifts so far, Indica, Indigo eCs, Nano, Sumo, Grande and Vista facelift in the making..all look below par. A good reference point for them would be the Terrano. I’m so mighty impressed with Nissan has done with the Duster to make it the Terrano. Absolutely brilliant work.

    Sorry to say, Tata’s design team looks out of synch with the market.

    It is still very much the “Christmas tree” tailight….there is a black thin strip camouflage on the sides of the back mirror on the top portion of the tailights……….
    otherwise a good work….it is now looking very much like a ‘cute’ hatchback from back now……
