Vistas of Power – Tata’s Hatch Now 90bhp
Ever since its launch, Vista (‘Indica’ prefix has been dropped) has been considered as a potential hatch with class leading space, adequate engine options and features, and excellent ride quality. And now the hot hatch get a VGT (Variable Geometry Turbocharger) to its 1.3 litre QuadraJet drive-line to boost-up power to a whooping 88bhp and 200Nm of peak torque, from 75bhp and 190Nm of torque with the existing fixed geometry turbocharger. This makes the Vista one of the powerful hatches in the segment.

The Vista 90 will be available in two variants – VX and ZX. One gets ABS and EBD in VX variant, while ZX extends the list with dual front airbags and alloy wheels. Pricing is where the Vista 90 scores much. The VX variant is priced at Rs. 6.03 lakhs, while the ZX is Rs.6.63 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai), making the car a value-for-money performance offering. Though Punto 90 is ahead in performance and ride quality, price does matter and will attract many prospective buyers. Vista now enjoys the league of powerful hatches in the market and a better image from the Indica.
