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.
