Tata Vista D90 is powered by 1.3 liter Quadrajet diesel engine offering 88 bhp, which is a first to be seen as against earlier Vista models which offer only 75 bhp. Torque output too is enhanced to 200 Nm, highest in the segment. The new major addition, which Tata says, sets the car apart, is the addition of Variable Geometry Turbocharger Technology. This new technology will ensure that the new Indica Vista D90 will give you a boost in acceleration the moment you hit the pedal. VGT will also help in maintaining peak torque over a longer period.
Cosmetic changes include, black roof with a small ‘90’ badge to distinguish it from earlier models. Its instrument cluster will be seen behind its steering wheel due to the fact that earlier central position was not well received by customers. The needles in the instrument cluster turns red if you over-speed or over-rev. This is a new patented technology from Tata Motors. Improvements are also seen where Vista D90 suspension system is concerned. Electronic break force distribution and anti lock braking systems will also be added to the upcoming model.
There is also another patented technology, which as been added to the new Indica Vista D90. This is the placement of a sensor (see images) on the dashboard behind the steering wheel, which gauges the amount of sunlight and tunes the air-condition accordingly. It has a topspeed of 158 kmph, 0-100 kmph in 15.5 seconds, 0-60 kmph in 6.3 seconds (better than Maruti Suzuki Swift), touchscreen, climate control, power to weight ratio of 76.3 PS/ton, ABS with EBD, and Dual SRS Airbags.
