    Tata Motors is now getting more aggressive than ever and that is a great sign. Just after the launches of the Manza Club Class and the Safari Storme, it is time for the Vista hatch to get a dose of more power. Just like the 90hp Fiat Punto hatchback, the Vista now gets the 88bhp 1.3-litre Quadrajet diesel motor which makes it one of the fastest in its class and a real hot hatch.
    This engine while doing duty in the 90hp Punto also is put in the Manza sedan. Powered by the Quadrajet diesel engine, with Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) technology the D90′s engine uses VGT technology and also along with the performance on offer you get a fuel economy of 21.12 KMPL. The D90 engine is mated to a Euro-tech 2 gearbox and does 0-100 kmph in 15.5 seconds and a top speed of 158 KMPH.
    Tata has made the Vista more sporty and there is a new front bumper, side skirts and a roof spoiler. You also get some wicked new colour options. Also to mark out the Quadrajet 90, all of them will come painted with a black painted roof. We must say all these changes have made the design more aggressive now and one look will mean you are driving the sportiest version of the Vista.

    On the inside the changes are more apparent especially when you sit in the drivers seat. The big change is the moving of the instrument cluster from the centre to the driver side.

    Tata Motors says Vista D90 first of new cars from its fold

    [​IMG]

    Tata Motors expects the Indica Vista D 90, its premium hatchback to be the first of better performing cars that it plans to launch as it aims at the No 2 spot by 2020.

    Tata Motors lost its No 2 slot to homegrown rival Mahindra and Mahindra last year after customers ditched its cars for rivals such as Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai Motor due to lack of innovation and features. The company has admitted that its customer service was the weakest link in the value chain.

    "With the Tata Vista D90, we begin 2013, with a journey that will see several Tata Motors' product actions through the year," Ranjit Yadav, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said in a statement.

    Indica Vista D 90 is positioned as a premium hatchback and competes with Maruti's Swift Dzire and expects the car to drive sales.

    From April to December, Tata Motors sold 2,48,068 cars in India, almost the same it sold in the previous year. Last month, it admitted that its products need a refresh, improve quality and remove the perception that its cars are only fit for taxis.
