Tata Zest Highlights

Zest Price

Tata Zest prices start at Rs. 5.82 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 7.32 lakh. The prices of Zest diesel variants start at Rs. 7.03 lakh and the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 9.89 lakh. Tata Zest is available in 11 variants and 6 colours.

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.

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.

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. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago

Q. Hi,I have Tata Zest XM model, and its timing chain was not changed at 60000km, now it is about to reach 80000km. Can you suggest if I can run more with its existing timing chain? Actually, I'm planning to change the same at next service which is due around 85000km.
  • Tata Motors suggest that the timing chain for the 90PS version is to be replaced at 60k kms and if I don't get it changed there will be trouble for my warranty. (Estimate of around 10-12k pre GST)...The seller , recommended since Zest has a timing chain instead of a timing belt, it needs to be replaced at 90,000 kms.So...Regarding, the timing chain, it is a fact that Tata Motors recommends change at 60,000Kms for the Fiat sourced 90PS Quadrajet engines. Manufacturers make such recommendations based on the wear and tear recorded by them during the extensive developmental testing. Usually they have good reasons for such recommendations and it is best to comply with them. : By Virendra | 6 months ago

    Good car, may not be as smooth as honda s or Hyundai s, but it is very comfortable and sturdy. Great mileage on highway, city mileage is not convincing. Very comfortable for 3 people at the back seat. Good looking car according to me. Comfortable to drive.

    The car isn’t a wonderful family car and it is a very good performers when it comes to lob Gud rides and people power delivery. The only drawback is that in spite of being only a 1.2 L Petrol engine, the mileage of 11 kmpl in the city is very poor.
