After nearly a couple of months of waiting, Tata Motors have announced that the official launch of the Tata Vista D90 will take place on January 28, 2013 (Monday).
The launch will be held at the Buddh International Circuit and Mr. Ranjit Yadav, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors will be addressing the conference as well.
The most significant change lies underneath the hood of the Vista. The 1.3-liter Quadrajet engine now churns out 88bhp (as against 75bhp of the normal Vista) and this comes as a benefit of the Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT). The torque has also increased from 190Nm to 200Nm.
Inside, the instrument cluster no longer takes center stage and now tucks behind the steering wheel. This has been attributed to negative customer response. The suspension has been reworked and promises better handling.
From the outside, the Tata Vista D90 will have a black roof, irrespective of the color and a small '90' badge at the rear of the car will differentiate it from its less powerful sibling.
The Tata Vista D90 will be available in two variants - VX and ZX. The VX is priced at INR 6.03 lakhs and gets ABS and EBD. The ZX variant at INR 6.63 lakhs gets airbags and alloy wheels as well (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
