As a pleased owner of Vista, I suggest you go for Vista VX diesel. Vista is a gem from TATA's stable and currently a PRACTICAL 5-seater car available. Bundled with hell lot of useful features makes it VFM
in VX trim is what makes it VFM IMO
. Besides, you'll get Sahara beige interiors which makes you feel good everytime you get into the car, 2-DIN Blue5 ICE, steering mounted controls, Steering tilt adjustment, Driver seat height adjustment, Electric ORVMs, Anti-glare IRVM, Front and rear fog lamps, rear demister and rear wash wipe, and the list goes on probably. Guess like I am advertising on behalf of TATA.
I see people here discussing about probably diesel price hike. What we are forgetting here is even Petrol price is subjected to be hiked. Even if subsidy is lifted on Diesel it should cost 15-20 rupees less than Petrol in any case and ofcourse BETTER fuel efficiency than Petrol.
All in all, Diesel makes sense for a mango man. TATA has come up with good offers like cash discounts and exchange bonus on old petrol cars is also good. I did the same and got whopping 60K discounts for my Vista VX.
Take a TD along with your Dad. Do not worry about TASS, they are seriously improving. Of late they have realized their reputation in the masses.
