The home-grown automajor Tata Motors that has been constantly inspecting dip in its sales will launch several new and facelifted vehicles in 2014. One such vehicle is the new 2014 Tata Vista which has already been caught testing in India several times. Codenamed as 'Falcon 4', the hatchback will get a new design, though mechanically it is likely to remain unchanged. The company might also drop the brand name 'Vista' and launch this vehicle with a new name.
The front fascia of the new 2014 Vista will get revised headlamps, new bumper with triangular airdams and Manza Hybrid concept inspired grille. The rear will get all new tail lights which now can be fitted below the rear windscreen. Also, the rear number plate could now be placed on the bootlid in spite of bumper. All these design changes were done at the company's European design center.
As mentioned above, the refreshed Tata Vista will see no mechanical changes. It will continue to derive its power from the Fiat sourced 1.3-litre Mulijet diesel mill in two power output options- 73bhp and 88bhp. Also, the BSIII compliant 1.4-litre TDI diesel engine too could be retained. The petrol version too will continue to be powered by the 1.2-litre MPFi, 4-cylinder engine, though this could be tuned to offer more power.
Though the company hasn't commented on its official unveiling, we are expecting the 2014 Vista to debut at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo in February. Other than the new hatchback 'Falcon 4', the company might also unveil a new compact saloon, which will replace the Manza.
