Are your seat covers aftermarket? The covering on the headrests (both front and rear) need some work if they are. If they are OE, then Tata needs to do some more work.

Congrats on the new car. The vista surely is quite spacious.Maybe a picture of the engine compartmanet and boot would complete the images.

Two concerns

1) are those aftermarket mud flaps-guess you could find something better to compliment the wonderful car.

2) seat covers needs better fitting-very shoddy at the headrest and the seat pockets.

i agree. i will upgrade sometime in the coming months to michelin and alloys. about size upgrade, i would do it provided it doesnt screw up the warranty. the salesman at the showroom "thought" the warranty would be affected if i go for a plus 1 upgrade. i need to confirm first if that statement is false.

yeah, i noticed it only when my wife pointed it out to me. i guess i was too excited to look at it closely when i took the delivery. i will get it fixed during the first service. and no, the seat covers arent OEM.

about the seat pocket, the crooked look on the one behind the passenger seat is because my son had stored his water bottle in it.

First owner pics of the Vista I guess. Congratulations for the new car. It sure is looking good. The real upgrade, I feel, is in the cabin, Interiors are miles ahead of the earlier gen Indicas. The seat covers also match the scheme of things quite well.

The only thing that doesn't excite me here is the placement of the instrument cluster. STRICTLY my opinion though. As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

OT: Are these centrally placed consoles any better than the conventional ones? I mean is there any specific advantage?

Congrats CAD! Vista looks hot in Red !! Good choice. Hows the HU?? One more question i would like to ask since you owned a Indica before. I heard Vista is more spacious than the previous Indica. True??

Hey nice pictures dude. The VISTA is slowly winning over everyone. What are the questions that people generally ask, when you're at signals especially

Congrats CAD,

A red IV is sure to turn a lot of heads. The rear seats split in 60 :40 ratio. Do the seats double fold ( tumble fold) as in the Indica V2. When I visited the showroom I could not do it with the Demo Car. I find tumble fold seats of th V2 really useful during intercity runs.

Awesome pics C-A-D!! The car looks awesome in red. Hope you have more and more miles with the car.

I noticed that thankfully you have taken the pic of the footwell and pedals of the car. Had one query here. How is the placement of the pedals for heel-toeing?? In the V2 that i have, its a big pain as the pedals are not placed conveniently for heel-toeing!!

This is basically done due to economics-as the Vista is planned for Europe and other markets with Left Hand Drive-the dash design hardly have to be changed to make the switch.

Redesigning the dash costs a lot and for a value for money car like the Vista the central design makes sense(personally dont like it though and the tachometer could have been bigger).
