One of TheAutomotiveIndia.com's members have managed to sneak into a Tata Motors dealership to bring images of the Indica Vista facelift. The Vista facelift will be launched on the 22nd of this month. Tata Motors might not conduct a press conference as the new Vista is a cosmetic makeover based on its elder sister Manza.
If you look at the photographs, the changes are very evident. An adaptation of the Manza's front end is present. The rear gets an Etios-esque band that runs along the width of the tailgate. The Tata badge in upper case sits right below logo. The naming convention has changes too with LS, VX and ZX being the new names.
Interiors haven't changed much either. Steering-mounted audio controls feature alongside controls for the Bluetooth-paired mobile phone. A two-tone dashboard is also present on the VX variant.
The new color option we've seen through spy shots is the school bus yellow. Tata is understandably wary of the competition coming out with new products. Maruti has just launched the new Swift and Honda's ready with the Brio. The Etios Liva diesel has been seen testing in Bangalore and Renault has an all-new hatchback waiting behind the curtain for an Auto Expo launch.
As these cars will try and redefine the B and B+ hatchback space, existing players like Tata, Fiat, Hyundai and Ford will have to upgrade their products to stay competitive.
