The Tata Bolt is priced between Rs 4.58 lakh and Rs 7.53 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. It takes on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, and the Hyundai Grand i10.
Tata's attempt to reinvent itself was spearheaded by the Bolt, and its compact sedan sibling - the Zest. The hatchback can be called the spiritual successor to the Indica Vista, and is based on the same platform as well.

Editor's View of Tata Bolt
Feature loaded, Rear seat space, Drivability
Small boot, No automatic variant, Low storage space inside the cabin
