Indica Turbomax Vs Tata Indica Vista Aura

Email question: Hi Soni, I have planned to buy Indica Vista Quadrajet Aqua variant. After going through its reviews on the Internet, I inquired with a few Vista owners about their feedback. Most of them were telling about some recurring troubles like rattling sound, wheel alignment problem, ineffective AC, and other build quality-related issues. A couple of them even told that the build quality of Vista Aura is poorer than that of Indica DLS though I don’t believe so. It seems that Tata motors has introduced a new version of Indica named Tata Indica Turbomax (DLE & DLS). It has got more power (71 ps) and bigger wheel size (14”) than the earlier Indica versions. Now, I am really confused on choosing between Vista Quadrajet and Indica Turbomax. Please help.
Answer: Indica Turbomax V2 has Tatas own 1.4L turbo diesel engine with 71 bhp, 135Nm torque at 2500 RPM (this engine is used in Vista TDI models). Vista quadrajet aura has Fiat's own engine 1.3L CRDI with 75 bhp and 190Nm torque at 1750 RPM (used in cars like Fiat Punto, Maruti Swift, and Maruti Dzire). The Vista Aura is the latest one and has new features that have not been given in any other Tata cars till now (of course Manza have these features also). Vista is more spacious than the old Indicas. Vista Aura is better built than V2 Indicas. Yes I agree that the plastic used may make some people a bit irritating. This is where Tata lacks in this car. High-end Vista Aura has ABS and dual-front airbags also. You can go ahead and download the brochures of both cars from Tata’s website and see the difference. I guarantee that you will like Vista Aura Quadrajet instead of Indica Turbomax. Also, make visit to the showroom and take test drives. But Vista Aura is pricey compared to V2 Indicas, but it is worth your money for what it packs under the bonnet, the special Fiat’s multijet engine and gearbox.
