Tata has been trying to break away from its cab image for quite a while now by bringing in products that appear to be premium and are not at all cheap.
It started with the Aria coming to the Indian markets and the Manza getting rechristened as the Club Class not to forget the just launched Safari Storme. Even though its the brand which sells the world’s cheapest car, it tries to show every now and then that it is a bit more than just the brand which brought in the Nano.
It has been a while since we started seeing the Vista being tested with the CR4 and 90PS Quadrajet engines and now the time has come for the latter to be launched and the hype would have died down had it been a bit late in launching the car.
According to an Autocar report, the car has reached stockyards last week is on sale now. However, we are yet to receive any official confirmation from Tata and neither have they updated their official site with Vista 90.
The car has been named as the Vista Quadrajet 90 and features the 1.3 litre Fiat sourced Multijet. It churns out 90PS of power output with 200 NM of torque which, we hope, makes it quite a performer on the roads. This engine is also shared by Fiat Punto 90HP Sport. It would be interesting to see how would Vista’s chassis handle the extra power it has been loaded with.
The car will be available in two trims – VX and ZX. The Vista 90 VX sports ABS and EBD and the ZX gets dual airbags and alloy wheels in addition to the features on the VX trim. The Vista Quadrajet 90 pricing starts at INR 5.74 lakhs for the VX model and goes up to INR 6.40 Lakh for the ZX trim (Ex-Delhi). The interiors are also shared with the Manza and that means the Vista 90 comes with properly right-side placed console.
If you go through the article once more, you’ll find that we have not used the term Indica and Indigo for the cars. The people back at Tata have been trying to do that for quite a while and we thought we’ll cut them some slack.
And coming to the sccops part, we hear that they are soon going to launch the CR4 Vista which would, in all probability, would replace the current TDI diesel engine and make the car BS4-market eligible. We have the exclusive spyshots of Vista CR4 as well.
