Default Re: TATA Vista Quadrajet 90

Under the bonnet of Vista D90 Xtreme, the standard Vista D90ís 89bhp, 1.3-litre, variable-geometry turbo-equipped Quadrajet engine has been modified to produce 104bhp. Modifications have been carried out in-house by Tata Motors, with a little help from Abarth, Fiatís performance division. The tweaks include a modified exhaust, a remapped ECU and an optimised turbocharger.

A production version of the D90 Xtreme is set to go on sale by the end of the year, with prices expected to be around Rs 80,000 more than a similarly specced Vista hatchback.

Not to mention the spare wheel mounted on a hatch door that opens up! I hope they would be providing a rod inside to hold the hatch door once opened. This deserves a place in the Mod jobs thread! No points for guessing which one

I like the front anyway. The spare wheel doesn't gel though.

Nop, that's a completely new product from design with just the platform shared (and probably a lot more bits from Vista / Manza).

@antz.bin, there isn't much wrong in the images or the concept as such.

It is clear that when the hatch needs to be accessed the rear mounted spare will move (rather flip to left) & the boot can be opened in normal way (upwards). Tata's only fault could be the use of Vista's body. Had it been more squarer shape like the SUVs are, it would have looked bit better.

... & if if it is priced around a lakh higher than the Vista MJD90 it would be bargain hot diesel crossover.

Front end styling =
Rear end styling = in the 80's

looks like the jugaad people usually do after they put an LPG tank in the spare wheel well, and dont have any place to mount it

Hey let's not run down Tata Motors for trying. At least they don't give cars which down right lack in features and cost a bomb.

I feel TML is really trying to do a lot in the Indian market, some are good some are not. However I always feel that most of us have been hyper critical of them. Let's appreciate the effort if not the final product. From what I have seen over the years is that even after all the flak they don't stop in trying new things.

Had a look at the pics on yahoo and am liked the extra bits other than the front. I liked the rear spoiler, rear & side skirts. Front is quite overdone.

By modifying the front bumper, I guess the D90 can be made to look quite a hot looking car. That's what I will do, if I buy this car.

Thanks Volkman for this information.

I somehow like the way "Tata motors" work on their new cars. TM offers a very good package with not so good looking body. Safari and sierra being exceptions

The image of Tata in the domestic market is bad. Becaue of looks and image, the volumes never came to tata and the best they could do is to achieve the #2 position.

If they could work on the looks and could fix the Tata Image, then they are good for #1 position. I wish Tata and Karl the best with this work.

Alright Mr Karl, lets see what you have got?

Since the car is now "Officially" launched (as D90), Can we expect an "Official" review?

Great pricing and suddenly the Chevrolet Sail looks at disadvantage which I always felt is a direct competitor for Vista. Space,ride, and practicality being the strength of both the cars, now Vista beats it in terms of value,features and horses.

Tata should have name it as Vista Sports or Vista Premium or something that would make it stand out from Vista crowd.

I dont think this car looks like a wacky or weird car . Maybe , we're just being very very harsh on TATA . IMO , the car looks pretty good . If only it doesnt start falling apart like the old gen Indicas, this would make a very very VFM deal and IMO this would sell a lot and woud help increase the sale numbers of Indica . Very well price I must say .

104 BHP and tuned with inputs from Abarth? Then my bet is that it is the same engine available on Lancia Ypsilon. Ypsilon had an automatic too, if I remember right.

Going off the topic, I hope Abarth Punto does not carry this engine!

I think those comments were for the Vista extreme crossover concept car (with spare wheel at the back). But the front skirt is a bit over done IMO. That's the ONLY bit I didn't like about the D90.

Has any bhpian taken a TD? Have the dealerships started giving TDs?

Externally, D90 looks just like the regular Vista except for the black roof. Those skirts, rear spolier etc. are optional fitments. The complete kit costs Rs. 25,000/-.
