IAB is speculating that the Falcon4 hatch will have a 1.2 Turbo Petrol engine with an output of 100bhp (approx).

Link to their article:

I hope they take care of the handling part, with at least neutral handling, if not sporty, afterall it will be competing against the favourites & legends.

Latest spy pics of the supposed Falcon 4 hatchback. Looks like there are some major changes in the inside . The steering looks nice. But not sure about the white Color though.

May be it is silver finish appearing to be white? It however, certainly needs to be toned down. Just chrome inserts will do.

Mods, I feel there is no need for 3 different threads regarding the Tata.
1) Vista Facelift.
2) Falcon
3) Auto Expo.

because same information is being posted in all the three threads.

Keep the Expo thread and block the other two.

PS:- no offence meant to anyone.

Tata Motors replaces Vista D90 with 75 PS VX Tech ABS version.

While the Vista D90′s replacement will come in the form of the Falcon 4 hatchback, the current Vista borrows a few interesting bits of the Vista D90 model, to emerge as a better car overall.

Quote:
Vista VX Tech ABS, a car that is powered by a 1.3 liter Fiat Multijet 75 Bhp-190 turbo diesel engine. This engine is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox that drives the front wheels of the car. The Tech variant of the Vista VX Diesel borrows the dashboard design of the Vista D90 and Manza.

It must be noted that the Tech variant of the Vista represents an mild facelift of sorts, one that has been engineered after considering extensive car buyer feedback.

The Falcon 4 will be the more comprehensive facelift for the car, and will make its official debut at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo.
In a nutshell, the Tech variant and the Falcon 4 are two different car models.

The Tata Indica Vista VX Tech ABS variant will go on sale in the next couple of weeks

AS per ACI Tata's 1.2L turbocharged petrol will produce 80bhp only. Link to their report:

http://www.autocarindia.com/auto-new...14-369182.aspx

Excerpts:

Quote:
Enthusiasts will be disappointed to learn that this new 1.2-litre turbo petrol motor will produce only about 80bhp – a figure that is bettered by most similar sized, naturally aspirated engines (the 1.2-litre petrol Swift makes 84bhp).

However, our sources reveal that the company’s prime focus is on reducing fuel consumption and delivering better drivability, rather than outright performance. In fact, Tata Motors is confident about achieving a very high fuel economy figure in the official Indian Driving Cycle (IDC).

From what I understand, Falcon 4 will be a NEW GEN Vista. Auto Expo thread could contain more information than just Vista / Falcon 4 - like Falcon 5.

We probably are talking about same thing in all 3 threads, but these cater to different discussions is what I think.

So all the Vista 75s get the same dash or ONLY the top end variant? I would rather liked to have the centre odo dash left for the lowest variant alone (for fleet purpose) and others should come with this dash.

@Toyota - TATA has understood the trick. When are you planning to learn?

I am disappointed! A turbo charged petrol can give a lesser average if driven by people who do NOT understand how to drive a turbo charged engine. I hope they are readying a VGT version of this as well, for the Manza.

As going by reports only the 75 PS VX Tech ABS version will get this change.


Cheers!
