Answer by Dheeraj 04 April 2009

The Indica Vista TDi can be expected to be the same as the older Indica Turbo. The Vista TDi has an intercooler, which the older Indica Turbo didn't have. That means that it develops slightly more power. However, since the kerb weight if the Vista is a little more than the older Indica, expect the car to be marginally more sluggish or the same as the older Indica.
Driving impressions: The turbo kicks in effectively only above 2000rpm, so driving in stop go traffic with the TDi engine is no fun. Also, when the turbo kicks in, it does so with a bang and you need to learn how to control this sudden burst, if you are to be able to drive the car around easily.
Engine: The TDi engine is the older engine and is a derivative of the original engine of the Indica / Indigo series, which, in turn is a poor copy of the Peugeot TUD5 series engine. The earlier versions of these engines never lasted more than 1 lakh kilometers and were prone to all kinds of failures. Tata has improved the quality since and if well maintained, these engines can last upto 2 lakh kilometers without major problems. However, since there is lack of consistency in production of these engines, you may be unlucky enough to get a bad piece, in which case, you will face a lots of problems. If you are lucky, well.. you are lucky!
Suggestion: If you really want to buy the Indica Vista, spend some more money and buy the Aqua / Aura with the Fiat 1.3 Multijet Engine (Quadrajet, as per Tata terminology). That is an awesome engine and will not give you problems.

Dheeraj is completely wrong. I have both swift and Indica vista tdi. But I prefer Vista over Swift in highway rides. Road grip and weight is far more superior than swift. Swift has cramped interior .. Only Maruti lovers who has previously own a maruti alto or 800 are blind about Swift.
