Here are more spyshots of the 2014 Tata Indica Vista facelift

Tata Motors is readying up a facelifted version of the Indica Vista B+ segment hatchback, due for a launch in early 2014. The 2014 Vista will derive inspiration from the design geometry seen on the Manza Hybrid, which was showcased at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo. While Team-BHP's rendering artist AntlerRoad has delivered a render of the 2014 Indica Vista, here are more spyshots of the car, this time revealing crucial details. 

Tata Motors has begun testing the 2014 Indica Vista facelift in and around its Pimpri factory, off Pune, in the run up to the car's launch next year. The new spyshots, depicting the profile and rear section of the 2014 Vista, show that the car in question seems to have grown a bit longer. The increased length may be attributed to the changes to the front and rear bumper.

Also, dummy tail lamps on the test mule at the rear point towards the new tail lamp design that the 2014 Vista will get in facelifted form. The X'mas tree tail lamp cluster will be ditched. The hatch lid gets dimpled in order to accommodate the number plate. For specific details on cosmetic changes to the 2014 Vista, click here.

On the styling front, the front end gets sharper, dumping the traditional smiley face of Tata cars for a more aggressive snout that was first seen on the Manza Hybrid concept. Other than these changes, the 2014 Indica Vista will retain the overall jellybean-ish profile of the current model's body shell. Engine and transmission options could be tweaked for better performance and refinement levels.

Both petrol and diesel engines will continue to be offered on the 2014 Vista, as is the case currently. The 2014 Vista will be a part of the slew of facelifted cars that Tata Motors will persist with until 2015. The car maker recently refreshed four cars: Nano, Indica, Indigo eCS and the Sumo Gold. From 2015 onwards, Tata Motors will begin launching all-new cars as a part of its complete overhaul process based upon the HORIZONEXT strategy.
