Spied – Base variant of 2014 Tata Vista


Karthik H,

A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.

The base variant of the 2014 Tata Vista was spied sedately filling up some petrol at a fuel station in Pune. The heavily camouflaged exterior showed that the car lacked projector headlamps, which is what differentiates it from the top-end variant.

The spied car also had its instrument cluster in the regular position, against the centrally mounted position – a la Toyota Etios – which it had adopted in its previous avatar.

This is the base variant which is devoid of projector headlamps or alloy wheels.

The engine for the 2014 Tata Vista is likely to be a 1.2-liter turbo engine derived from the old 1.2-liter XETA mill. The old 1.2-liter XETA engine delivered a paltry 65 bhp, but turbocharging would give it a whole new personality.

The Vista will continue to get the smiling grille facade, a feature that has been prominent since the first Indica was launched. The spied vehicle was running on 14-inch tyres from Apollo on steel rims – further proof that it isn’t the top-end variant.

The top-end of the 2014 Vista comes equipped with projector headlamps and a front indicator that is more of a stroke of the brush under the headlamps. A honeycomb grille on the front and tyres on 8-spoke alloy wheels complete the picture.

The diesel variant will be powered by the extremely familiar and proven 1.3-liter Multijet engine from Fiat.
