Spied in Italy – 2014 Tata Falcon 4 (Vista Facelift) caught on test

Posted on: Dec 24, 2013 - 10:00am IST

Tata is testing the 2014 Tata Vista facelift (codenamed the Falcon 4) in Turin, Italy. These images were snapped by Quattro Route‘s Alberto Damiano.

What is this test mule doing in Italy, we wonder.

The taillights, though uncamouflaged, are simply dummy units. However, we think the bootlid of this car (which has a different cutout to accommodate the redesigned taillights) is production approved. Apart from the new taillights, previous spyshots have revealed that Tata will move the registration plate enclosure from the bumper to the bootlid.

Previous reports have indicated that Tata Motor’s European Design Center is responsible for redesigning the new Vista. While it will continue to use the same platform as the existing car, Tata’s marketeers are reported to ditch the ‘Indica’ and ‘Vista’ names, and this car is expected to be launched with a new name.

The bootlid’s redesign is clearly visible in these images.

Engine options are most likely to remain the same. The diesel variant of the car will use Fiat’s MultiJet 1.3-liter engine (Tata calls its Quadrajet) and will be offered in 75 PS and 90 PS outputs. The other diesel engines in contention for the lower models are Tata’s 1.4-liter CR4 (BS4-compliant) and Tata’s 1.4-liter TDI (BS3-compliant) engines.

The petrol Vista, which doesn’t set the sales chart on fire, will use a 1.2-liter engine, which could be mildly retuned for better efficiency and power.

We expect to see the Falcon 4 at the upcoming Auto Expo, which commences in the first week of February 2014.

    I dont see much changes in design. Sorry Tata, this still looks like a Indica in modern clothes. I wonder what design team @ TML thinks of it..

    Even if Mr.Tata asked you guys to retain Indica looks, do not follow it.. otherwise your will get closed own because of Indica looks..

    TATA likes to call this an all new model but I really don’t see it that way. The mid portion is exactly like Vista without any body panel changes. The front and rear end are modified but not designed from scratch. Looks like a facelift and thats disappointing.
