2014 Tata Zest
Standing at this point I can certainly say that the concept of turning a popular hatch into a compact sedan is already popular in India and we do have many new and interesting products in this particular segment. Take for e.g. the popular Honda Amaze or the Maruti Swift Dzire and even the newly launched Hyjndai Xcent all these products are providing good business for their particular manufacturers infact some of the compact saloons became more popular than their hatchback counterpart .
One of the most popular Indian auto manufacturers who does not need any introduction unveiled two of their latest offering in the Indian market at the 2014, Auto expo christened as the Bolt and the Zest. Most of you are already aware of the fact that the popular manufacturer is none other than Tata motors and their Bolt hatchback will replace their aging hatch Vista while the Zest will be the saloon version of the Bolt hatch which will compete with the above mentioned compact saloons in the Indian market. We already brought you our first impression of the Bolt hatch now it’s time that we bring our first impression of the Zest saloon as well which already is gaining lot of popularity from the crowd even before its launch because of its exciting new but different styling, impressive interiors and the newly developed petrol engine.
Quite frankly Tata Motors has tried best to design the Zest compact saloon differently than the existing Manza or the Vista hatch and as a result of that the long signature Vista tail lamps has been omitted from this new car. Cover the Tata Motors badge and it will keep you wondering which car is it exactly. So go through our first impression and find out everything about this new compact sedan from Tata Motors.
UPDATE 12/08/14 Tata Launched their compact sedan Zest in India today with prices starting at Rs.4.64 Lakhs (Ex Showroom Delhi) for the base Patrol XE Variant.
