Both the VX and ZX variants of the Vista D90 get a facelift of sorts on the outside, with a new front bumper, a new rear bumper, side skirts and a new roof spoiler. Also, the car gets chrome strips on the front bumper and Vista D90 badging on the boot lid. On the inside, the Manza’s dashboard makes an appearance for the first time, in the Vista. The dashboard’s fit and finish levels, along with beige interiors, endows the Vista D90’s interiors with an airy and premium appeal.
The Vista’s traditional strength of spacious-ness gets a shot in the arm with the beige interiors, which make the insides of the car feel even more spacious by adding to the effect. The Indica Vista D90 is available in five colors, red, white, grey, purple and silver.
