Team-BHP scoops the 2014 Indica Vista; Details Inside

Days ago, ace rendering artist AntlerRoad delivered a speculative rendering depicting the 2014 Tata Indica Vista facelift, due for a possible launch at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. Today, we've brought you a spyshot of the car just about to hit the testing circuit. This is the first ever spyshot of the Indica Vista facelift and with the spyshot, we have managed to glean crucial details of the car including the changes that the final product is expected to bring to the table. 

As detailed before, the 2014 Vista will be a major refresh for Tata Motors in terms of the design direction the automaker will take in the coming years. From the unmistakable smiley face we're so used to on Tata cars, major refreshes from Tata Motors will henceforth feature sharper stylistic jobs with the smile giving way to an aggressive snout of sorts. The 2014 Indica Vista will derive inspiration from the Tata Manza Hybrid that was showcased at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo. 

While the spyshot doesn't offer too many clues when it comes to the new design of the 2014 Vista Facelift, Team-BHP's spy photographer has taken the good old touch and feel approach to find out what's underneath all that camouflage. Reconstructing the touch and feel experience to actual details, here's what the 2014 Vista Facelift is expected to feature, 

  • Redesigned front grille
  • New front bumper
  • New Headlamps with a more pronounced flaring
  • Turn indicators move back to the conventional position above the front wheel arches (Currently, the Vista has turn indicators positioned on the A-Pillar)
  • The Dashboard is carried over from the new (current) Indica Vista D90
  • Tail gate is a redesigned item with a prominent dimple
  • On the 2014 Indica Vista, the number plate will sit in the dimple, a-la-Figo's hatch lid
  • New tail lamps

For now, these are the details of the 2014 Tata Indica Vista we've managed to put together. Details of the engines and transmissions is something that Team-BHP is trying to find out more about. The 2014 Indica Vista is also expected to get upgraded interiors and a few additional creature comforts thrown in for good measure.
