The facelift version of the Indica Vista, was renamed as the Vista. This hatchback received some major upgrades on the outside and it got the Manza snout.
This meant a lot of chrome treatment on the front grille and even the front fog lamps got the chrome surrounds.
The Vista was always a spacious hatchback, just like its predecessor Indica. The interiors were also leaps and bounds ahead of the previous generation and
the recent facelift has also solved the quality issues in the car. The titivated version of the Vista has much better interiors than the outgoing version.
We do love the black and beige interior combination over the previous beige interiors. Indians love the beige colour for some reason. The front row seats
are large and comfortable, even the thigh and back support offered is good. Even the boot of the Vista is large enough to swallow the clobber for a
The 1.3 litre quadrajet is definitely the pick of the lot. The engine is frugal and has good pick-up also. The 1.3 litre quadrajet is one of India’s
favourite diesel engines and has to the ideal choice, if you have loads of travel.
The 1.2 litre petrol engine is also available on the Indica Vista. This is the same powertrain that also propels the Grande Punto. The 1.2 litre mill
produces about 65 bhp of power. The power delivery is decent, however most of the power is developed at a higher rpm. The gearbox on the Vista is a
five-speed manual and is decent and shirt to use. The clutch is soft and is a breeze to use in city traffic.
The Vista definitely has one of the best ride in its segment and it is ideal for Indian road conditions. There are no two ways about it. The handling is
good enough for city driving.
