Posted on: Oct 19, 2013 - 12:53pm IST

Here is a close-up spyshot of a 2014 Tata Vista facelift prototype, courtesy of Motor Vikatan. If you notice carefully, this image clearly shows the new honeycomb-mesh grille design, which takes inspiration from the Tata Manza Hybrid concept shown at the 2012 Auto Expo.

We are also able to notice a new bumper, though it doesn’t seem to sport the triangular airdams seen on a previous spy image.

Note the new grille design of the 2014 Tata Vista which is inspired by the Manza Hybrid.

The rear of the Vista facelift is expected to get a major redesign. The registration plate enclosure would move up from the bumper to the bootlid, while the combination light would ditch its christmas-tree arrangement and be positioned in a a more horizontal fashion.

The Tata Vista facelift is expected to continue with the same engine options. The petrol Vista is powered by a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine outputting 65 PS and 96 Nm of torque while the diesel Vista is powered by the 1.3-liter Fiat MultiJet engine. This engine, dubbed Quadrajet, is available in two states of tunes of 75 PS and 90 PS.

A BS3-spec 1.4-liter 71 PS engine is also available and in addition, Tata could introduce their 1.4-liter CR4 engine to further improve the Vista’s frugality. We expect to see the refreshed Vista in attendance at the 2014 Auto Expo in February.

    the hybrid kind of sharp grill will not match with petal shape headlights… do they have any sense?

    why dont they simply make it to look like concept model itself? it will be stunning

    1. Ayyappan says:

      Yes agree. The Manza Hybrid concept in itself looks impressive. But the Vista facelift test cars seems to have inherited the same old Indica DNA in terms of design, which might lead to a sales disaster. They’ve to radically overhaul the design just like Nissan did the Duster to make the Terrano.

    The upgrade looks good.
