About Tata Zest

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).

Tata Zest Overview

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).

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.
