Default Black and White ( Indica Vista Quadrajet - Anniversary Edition)

Being a car fanatic can actually land into too much of troubles within your family circle, apart from keeping track of every other cars within my family circle, i also get to do a few TD's when anyone is buying a car. Yes i love doing it.

My Mom's young sis's family were toying around the idea of a good hatchback for their family of 4. Good looking, spacious, and a Diesel was their requirement.

Now starts my task to do some research and give a final project report. They had shortlisted few cars for which my reports were as below.
( TD's done and results given were as per my opinion, so kindly no offenses to any car)

1) Hyundai Getz :
Great car
Good leg and head room
Wonderful handling
Dated and looking old
Wonderful Diesel
Too pricey
RESULT: off the list since it was pricey and also was supposed to be replaced by i20

2) i20:
Beautifully built
Good handling
Good leg and head room
Affordable car
Petrol
RESULT : Off the list since there were no diesel variants.

3) Swift DDIS :
Already a super hit car
Neat handling
Very stiff suspension
Awkward leg room specifications
Bad ride at rear
Nice Fiat Diesel engine
Within the price budget
RESULT: Off the list since the leg/Head room prepositions did'nt quite convince us

4) Indica Vista :
Fresh new design
Superb handling
Comfortable car with good suspension
Huge leg/head and shoulder room
Wonderfully tuned Fiat Diesel
Good pricing
RESULT : Booked and got the delivery of the Anniversary Aura Quadrajet because of Value For Money Preposition.

I loved the color combination so much for which i've named the thread Black and White

Mods: Add Indica Vista Quadrajet Anniversary Edition if required

Here are the pics

Vista's anniversary edition is indeed a lovely looking car in particular the color combination of White with Black Roofs. Even the alloys on this one are really sweet.

Congratulations, Pavan on your new ride.

Congratulations Sir. That is a very good decision. True that the Vista is VFM,
But I'm amazed that you found i20 to be affordable and Getz crdi to be pricey.
Or I guess you wanted to write the other way around. But nevertheless your decision was spot on. I would have gone for the Getz though,but again

I never knew an indica could look so beatiful !!! Its a great looking hatch, leg room amazes me and curves look far far better than any other tata products.

Congrats to your folks on the new car, and to you for assisting them in the decision making!

Is that a USB data cable in the fifth picture? What music player is it?

Congrats on your lovely purchase.
Are these alloys standard with the variant?

After seeing this one, even I might go in for a Vista quadrajet.

Thanks Harry, great!
How much extra does this variant cost?


Edit: Thanks for the price update too, edit option was alive still!
Yes, worth the extra bucks, could live with the color too!
