We have been reporting in detail about the upcoming Tata Vista facelift (Falcon 4).
As we have been saying, the updated Vista will make its public debut at the upcoming Auto Expo 2014, which will be held early next month and the car is likely to go on sale around the advent of next fiscal. (Click here to read about all the 40 odd cars that are coming to us next year) The Tata Vista facelift, which has been internally codenamed as the Falcon 4, will most likely share the floorspace with a sub-4 meter, compact sedan, variant of the Manza (codename Falcon 5). The Tata Vista facelift will sport a comprehensively update front end, a totally revised rear end and probably a mildly updated interior. In a recent development, it has emerged that Tata Motors will also showcase a new petrol engine at the upcoming Auto Expo. This petrol engine would displace 1.2 litres and will be a turbocharged unit. The new age Tata engine is likely to have a max power output of around 100 bhp and is also likely to have a decent fuel economy.
It is no secret that so far, Tata Motors has been lagging when it comes to petrol engine technology. The petrol engines being offered by Tata Motors have often been criticized for being quite low on both refinement and fuel economy. With the arrival of the new turbo petrol motor though, all this is likely to change and it is being said that the Falcon 4 and the Falcon 5 will be the first cars that would get this new-age petrol engine.
Currently, the Tata Vista petrol is being powered by a 1.2-litre, normally aspirated, motor that has a max power of just 65 PS. It would be interesting to see if the upcoming motor will come across as a worthy rival to the highly acclaimed petrol motors from Japanese rivals.
