Tata Zest REVIEW
SYNOPSIS  Tata Zest, is manufactured in 10 versions in India in the form of 4 Petrol and 6 Diesel cars. It comes in 6 colours, namely, Sky Grey, Buzz Blue, Dune Beige, Platinum Silver, Pristine White, and Venetion Red. The sedan was launched in 2014 and was the company’s first all new product under its Horizonext product strategy. It’s famous for its exceptional styling, top-dollar features and competent engines. The car lies below the 10 lakh division and is constructed with inputs from Tata’s design studios in Pune, Turin (Italy) and Coventry (UK).

The car sports the company’s new ‘DesignNext’ philosophy and looks more modern and premium its predecessors. On the front, the car has new signature grille with the new ‘Humanity Line’, trapezoidal lower air dam, projector headlamps with chrome accents, fog lamps, daytime running lights and pronounced hood. The side profile gets ‘The Diamond DLO’ and ‘Slingshot Line’. It also has some bold shoulder creases and wraparound rear styling for a better cosmetic design. It also includes a new pair of 15-inches alloy wheels, LED taillights, rear view mirrors, rear bumper with black treatment and well-integrated boot.

The interior is also subjected to various changes, just like the exterior. The car now has a long wheelbase and the sedan also offers ample cabin space. The height adjustable driver seat and supportive rear bench are added for better comfort. It has piano black finishing on center console, instrument cluster and glove box and silver finishing around AC vents and throughout the cabin for a little added oomph. The sedan also includes Harman’s ConnectNext infotainment system with 5-inches touchscreen (3-inches on base-model), audio system with Bluetooth, iPod/USB and Aux-in connectivity, reverser parking sensor display, voice commands features etc.


Both petrol and diesel engine options are available. The petrol variant is powered by the Tata’s self-developed 1.2-litre MPFi turbocharged Revotron engine that gives a maximum power of 88.73bhp at 5, 000rpm and 140Nm of torque at 1, 750rpm to 3, 500rpm. The diesel trims are powered by a 1.3-litre, four-cylinder Quadrajet engine, which produces 88.73bhp with 200Nm. A 5-speed manual transmission and an F-Tronic technology enabled AMT (automated manual transmission) gearbox are on offer.

A fuel economy of 22.95 kmpl is given by the 1248 cc diesel variant while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 17.57 kmpl, respectively.

Both the petrol and diesel engines are concentrated, and have well-controlled NVH levels. Instant and continuous power is delivered by the 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine at all RPMs, but it lacks mid-range energy. Tata’s Revotron unit is first-in-segment to offers three drive mode selector - Eco, City and Sport. Though the new AMT gearbox is a favorable option, but is bumpy at high revs. Due to the agile suspension, the ride is balanced.

The core rival i.e. the new Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire has improved styling and some premium additional features. Moreover it has a good drivability and delivers an impressive mileage. Whereas, the Tata Zest, on the other hand, looks better than some other cars in its division. It offers a well-featured and premium interior, mated with superb ride quality and drivability.
