Detailed Tata Indica Vista Review

What's Good?

I test drove Vista Saffire (Aura Version). when I started the engine, I could not even notice the car is started. becuase there is no noise inside the cabin and no vibrations at all. I feel like sitting in big sedans like Optra or Civic (i.e. sound insulation of vista is of same level as of big sedans). The noise of engine is very low as well as lot of care is taken on sound insulation part. Passengers in the rear seat definitely feel sitting in the Sedan. While driving, I had to apply sudden breaks (to avoid hitting of moitor cyclist, who entered the road suddenly from side street), let me tell you the breaks are very effective and could able to stop in 5-10 seconds (from 30KMPH to 0KMPH) without any jerk inside the car. AC is fine ( I dont say it is very good), because the kind of chill ness it is producing against the noise it is making is low. And compared to large interior space, they should have provided much powerful one. The Gear to RPM setting of the engine is very good, you can be on 3rd gear most of the time in city traffic, engine does not make noise even at 20KMPH being at 3rd gear. car pickup is not very great but definitely more than sufficient for a normal car driver (unless you are SPEEDO driver, the Vista is more than enough to suit your power requirements. Overall the car is excellent car and truly worthy . Sedan class comforts in a hatchback car price. The car I am talking about is Tata Vista Saf.Really roomy interriors, contemporary styling, superb ride quality and handling. plastic finish, bad interior dash board design, engine... read complete review VISTA - very good for city as well as long distance.sturdy and safe.

What can improve?

Slightly short on boot space. No ABS/Airbag option.plastic finish, blank looking dash board design,no two fold rear seat

Overall Comments

One look at the new Indica Vista and you immediately realize the generous addition of chrome on the car. The front is very reminiscent of the Indigo Manza and has been done intentionally. The company wants people to associate the Vista with the Manza, rather then with the Indica. The new three barrel headlamps and chrome grille go along well on the new Vista. Chrome has been added to the side as well, along with the addition of new 14-inch alloy wheels. The rear gets a pearl black finish strip, along with changes in font size for the TATA and Indica Vista logo. Overall, the design of the Indica Vista remains very similar to the old model, with slight changes to keep things looking fresh. The company is offering the new Vista with two new colours – yellow (from the Indica Sport at the Auto Expo) and blue

Interiors is very good, I rate excellent and this car is no comparison to other B+cars in its segment (I have experienced Aveo UVA, Getz, Swift). The interiors of the car are comparable to the ones that are 2-3 levels above its class. Need to see about the quality/reliablity of the same. I believe as the car is from TATA, there wont be any issue.

Overall, Indica Vista Saffire is excellent package for the price tag. You can enjoy riding the Sedan on the road with flexibility of small car in city conditions. If you planning for a family car (i.e. you drive with your family of 3-4 ppl most of the time), then you consider this as the best option.
