A small update here. I came to know that Tata is planning to launch Aura+ variant of Indica vista which will have the much needed features like ABS and Airbags. Needs to confirm it, If anyone else have more updates. Let's know.
Tata Motors has launched a new Indica Vista range today, the Indica Vista Drivetech4. The new range aims at improving the driving experience for its customers. The Indica Vista, essentially a second-generation Indica was launched in August 2008.
The new Indica Vista Drivetech4 is Euro-4 compliant in both petrol and diesel forms. The company claims that a new Eurotech gearbox for diesel and petrol variants ensures higher torque at lower RPM, reduces vibration and provides a better shifting experience. In addition, the gearbox is also claimed to ensure cooled exhaust gas recirculation for lower emissions and hence a longer life.
New features in the interior include a four-spoke tilt-adjustable steering wheel and height adjustable driver’s seat. 60:40 split folding rear seats allow for increased storage area when required. Entertainment gets a bump in the form of an integrated 2-din stereo system with Blue 5 and USB port compatibility. Dual airbags at the front and ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) add to the safety quotient of the car.
Tata has priced the new car competitively from Rs 3.57 lakhs for the Safire petrol range and Rs 4.4 lakhs for the Quadrajet diesel range (ex-showroom, Delhi).
