2014 Tata Falcon 4’s (upgraded Indica Vista) interiors come into focus

Snapshot: One of Tata Motors’ big unveils at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo will be the upgraded Indica Vista hatchback, also known as the 2014 Falcon 4. Tata Motors plans to do away with the Indica Vista badging though the upgraded car continues to use the X1 platform. 

The Tata Indica Vista hatchback’s upgraded version – the Falcon 4 – will get a revised design on the outside, one that is more sporty what with aggressive lines, smoked projector headlamps and the works. The innards of the car will also get a makeover and Overdrive has the first uncamouflaged image of the 2014 Vista Upgrade/Falcon 4.

The image depicts a new steering wheel, revised bits on the dashboard and revised instrumentation cluster. The Falcon 4 is also likely to get a new infotainment system with a GPS navigation module integrated into it. With Tata Motors promising better fit and finish levels through the HORIZONEXT strategy, expected quality levels of the Falcon 4’s interiors to go up by a few notches.

Under the hood, the 1.3 liter Fiat Multijet turbo diesel engine and a 5 speed manual gearbox combination will be retained for the diesel powered variants. The petrol engine is said to be an all-new unit replete with turbocharging and a 100 Bhp peak power output. The upgraded Vista/Falcon 4 with a turbo petrol engine will be only the second B+ Segment hatchback in India – after the Volkswagen Polo TSI – to take the turbo petrol route.

The 2014 Vista/Falcon 4 will be joined by a compact sedan model, which is also based on the Vista/Manza’s X1 platform. Called the Falcon 5, the compact sedan variant of the Manza is also likely to feature the stylistic, quality and mechanical improvements seen on the Vista/Falcon 4. The new Tata compact sedan will take on Maruti Swift Dzire and the Honda Amaze.
