Here is Pune Ex-Show. pricing for Vista.
Its too tough hammerhead,my requirements are like I can spend either 5 lakhs or 7 lakhs on a car. My initial choice was a Punto E+ when it was costing approximately 6.5L OTR , when Manza was launched with same features I had a look again at Punto E+ only to find that the price had shot up and was 6.85L OTR. I ws shocked as both the cars are Priced same with same features the only difference being the boot and the brand(Im a Fan of FIATs sturdiness in their cars) Now I dont know if I should go for the Punto E+ or Manza Aura+ as boot is not a requirement.

The second issue is im used to driving with the drivers seat pulled back completely and the space in Punto has the drawback there but FIATS rock steadiness even at speeds of 140+ .

Now with the Vista Aura+ Im getting 80% features of the manza and punto and its 2 lakhs cheaper. Need some divine intervention

Is the Aura plus model available in any of the Chennai dealers? Plesae let me know.
I visited few of the showrooms and they have the Aura ABS but not the Aura Plus and do not even know the price..

Default Tata Indica Vista Aura ABS (EDIT: Now it is Aura Plus with ABS and Airbags)

Read in today's Hindu. Vista is now available with ABS and Airbag. IMHO, its makes it a more VFM product for a family who want a diesel car with lots of space, ride quality and safety.

The product is called Vista Aura +

Mods : Note sure if a thread/post already exists; please merge if needed.

Good, but what about the dashboard? It is still a hinderance for a good road view isn't it? Would be even good if Tata Motors provide a free hammer to hit the dashboard & bring it down

Maybe it was that particular car, but we (wife and myself) were not impressed with the Vista's ride on a particular stretch of road here in Alleppey. Other cars were also tried on the same stretch and Vista was only in the middle of the rankings.

Are there any other updates planned for the Vista? The Vista Sport , now that was such a head-turner.

Same add in Bangalore TOI. Is the Drivetech4 another drivetrain addition? I see the Aura badge in the car pic, so it would not be just another trim/variant. Why does it say "all new vista"?
