Tata Motors has been extensively testing the 2014 Tata Vista and here are a new set of spyshots. Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Rohit Naik, caught this test mule somewhere in Pune. Luckily he left us a note which reads -
The rear lights seemed a bit weird as if they did not have the usual casing.
In our previous 2014 Vista stories, we reported (and showed you a render) that the taillights could ditch the traditional 'christmas tree' arrangement favoring a newer design. In the newer design, Tata could arrange the combination lights on the lower portion of the bootlid, thus giving the Vista a complete makeover.
The spyshot clearly shows that the brake lights have been arranged on the lower portion of the bootlid. In the current Vista however, the brake lights are like the old Indica.
You can also notice in this spyshot that the registration plate has been fixed on the bootlid rather than on the bumper. The front of the Vista would receive redesigned headlights, a more aggressive bumper and a new grille which seems to be influenced by the Manza Hybrid concept that was shown at the 2012 Auto Expo.
The Tata Vista facelift would continue using the same set of engines as it does currently - a Fiat-sourced 1.3-liter MultiJet engine producing 75PS or 90PS, and a 1.2-liter 65PS petrol engine. The Vista is also available with a 1.4-liter TDI engine producing 71PS, though this engine complies with BS3 norms only. Would we get the CR4 engine as another option on the refresh setting a new high for fuel efficiency in the Vista range?
We should see the new Vista latest by February 2014 at the Auto Expo.
