Tata Zest Latest Updates

Tata has launched the Zest 'Premio' special edition to prolong the life of the slow-selling compact sedan. Priced at Rs 7.74 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi), the special edition celebrates the sale of 85,000 units of the Zest on Indian roads. Exclusively available with the diesel engine only, the Premio Edition sits right under the top-spec diesel XT trim (Rs 8.13 lakh).

Earlier, the Zest had scored a respectable 4-stars in the NCAP crash tests. Two models of the Zest were crash tested last year - one without airbags and one with two airbags. The standard non-airbag variant scored zero for adult occupant protection and one star for child occupant protection. The dual airbags version with two pretensioners performed considerably well. Together with the seatbelt reminder for the driver, the sub-4 metre sedan from Tata scored an impressive four-star rating for adult occupants.

The Zest is available in 11 different variants, covering two engine and transmission options each. Prices for the sub-4 metre sedan start at Rs 5.50 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 8.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). While 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine is tuned to produce 90PS/140Nm, the 1.3-litre Quadrajet diesel is available in two different tunes - 75PS/190Nm and 90PS/200Nm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual unit or a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT).

Editor's View of Tata Zest

  • Upside

    Space, ride and features

  • Downside

    Lack of stowage, soft seats

  • Our Verdict

    The Zest is a big step up for Tata Motors be it design, interior look and feel or quality. The new 1.2-litre turbo petrol works well and with an AMT transmission for the diesel variant, Zest now becomes the cheapest diesel automatic one can buy. It is definitely worth a look in.

Q. Which car is best zest or Tigor?
  • The Tigor comes loaded with most features buyers look for though its engines are not as powerful, especially the diesel. However, it actually betters them in two key areas that matter to buyers in this segment, namely space and comfortable ride. With these virtues and its eye-catching design, the Tigor thus creates a new niche for Tata Motors. Tigor should thus make for a good buy if you want a comfortable, spacious and efficient city car that can also manage short weekend trips. Whereas, Zest’s premium touchscreen infotainment system, ride quality and spacious cabin work in its favour. It is an easy car to drive as well. Hence, the affordable price tag makes it a good contender in the segment. That said, it is getting a bit long in tooth now and Tata is expected to discontinue the model very soon.
  • Both r diff, Zest is quite big, n petrol milage 13-17 kmpl,Tigor is quite small in width compare to Zest, gives milage 14-21 kmpl in petrol
  • The tata tigor is a good sedan, but I won't suggest the tigor automatic (AMT) variant, Idont know about zest.

Q. My Zest XM petrol vibrates after 100km/hr. What might be possible cause?
  • Vibration is usually caused by an out of balance or defective tire, a bent wheel or a worn driveline U-joint. You may find that the car shakes the car in an up and down motion. You may feel the vibration through the seat, the steering wheel or even in the brake pedal. So we would suggest you to have all of the tires carefully inspected at the authorized service center as they will be the better person to assist you - Car Showrooms.
Q. Is there any issue in base model of zest diesel?
  • Frankly speaking there are lots of issues in tata zest. Not only for the model you are asking for, but for all models
  • No issues

    Previously I had Tata Indigo and that was the Best Car from Tata, so I thought that this new Zest will be better than Indigo, but I am sorry that I am fail and my trust and faith to Tata Motors spoiled. I am travelling by car and I had to go for far distance from My Place Bhuj to Ahmadabad, Baroda, Gandhinagar capital of Gujarat. and other places. I thought that new Zest will be have good Average of Mileage then Indigo !!

Tata Zest Highlights

The Tata Zest is a premium sub-4 metre sedan that has been on sale since 2014. It competes against other compact sedans such as the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze and the Hyundai Xcent. The Zest is loaded with features, powerful petrol and diesel engine options and good looks. The compact sedan is safe too. The Global New Car Assessment Program (Global NCAP) awarded four stars to the Tata Zest equipped with two airbags in a crash test. The Tata Zest range is priced between Rs 5.50 lakh and Rs 8.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Zest Specifications

The Tata Zest comes with a 1.2-litre petrol (90PS/140Nm) and a 1.3-litre diesel motor. The diesel motor is available in two state of tunes - 75PS/190Nm and 90PS/200Nm. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. But the more powerful diesel comes with the option of a 5-speed automatic as well.

Zest Exterior and Interior

Like most other sub-4 metre sedans, the Zest doesn't look very proportionate. It gets a long bonnet and a short boot. But the strong shoulder line and an upswept lower character line gives the Zest better road presence. It gets largest in class 15-inch wheels too. The design of the alloy wheel isn't exciting, but its size certainly helps the Zest's stance. At the rear, the Tata Zest has LED tail lamps, a well-defined bumper and boot lid with a thick chrome line that spans across the width of the car.

The Zest packs a Harman audio system on the top of the line XT trim. It comes with a touchscreen interface and also gets voice activated command. It supports Bluetooth telephony, reads out your text messages and has a reverse guidance system as well. Even the climate control can be adjusted via the touchscreen. The cabin is quite spacious when compared to other cars in its class. However, it does lack a bit when it comes to storage spaces and cup holders.

Tata Zest Competitors

Hyundai Xcent : Hyundai’s compact sedan based on the Grand i10 is well known for its interior quality and space. The practicality of a larger car with the reliability and low cost of ownership of a hatchback make it a good option for a lot of family buyers. The Xcent does not get a diesel automatic variant, unlike the Ameo, Zest or the Dzire.

Honda Amaze : Surprisingly spacious, the Honda Amaze is one of the most practical sub-4 metre cars in India. The design has become dated but we have seen the new one at the 2018 Auto Expo, which is expected to be launched later this year.

Maruti Dzire : Probably the best value-for-money offering in the segment, the new Dzire packs a plethora of features, best in class mileage and ride quality. It won our comparison test with other sub-4 metre sedans for excelling in almost every practical aspect that a car of this class needs to be good at.

ZigSays

The Zest’s premium touchscreen infotainment system, ride quality and spacious cabin work in its favour. It is an easy car to drive as well. Hence, the affordable price tag makes it a good contender in the segment. That said, it is getting a bit long in tooth now and Tata is expected to discontinue the model very soon.
