KOZHIKODE: Tata Motors has been a strategic partner of the Indian Armed Forces from as early as 1958 and its mobility-solutions portfolio has grown from strength to strength to include all classes from light to heavy vehicles across the entire defence, paramilitary and police mobility spectrum.
Tata Motors entered the passenger vehicle market in 1991 by launching Tata Sierra, a multi-utility vehicle. Since then, Tata Motors has made its mark in almost all the segments of the automobile industry and today it is one of the largest motor vehicle manufacturing companies in the world.
Now, it's time to zest up your life with the all-new Tata Zest, which will definitely make you feel something special. The first look at the Zest will remind you of the ancestors of its class like the Vista and Manza. But, if you take a close look, you will definitely regret the thought. Talking about the design, this compact sedan gives a total luxurious, bold and sculpted look. The projector headlamps with LED light guide rings, LED day-time running lights and Tata' s unique signature grille make this machine stand out from other rivals.
Zest is powered with India's first 1.2 litre turbo-charged MPFi petrol engine, the powerful Revotron 1.2T delivers the best-in-class power and Torque of 90PS and 140 Nm between 1750-3500 RPM respectively. The built-in multi-drive mode feature lets you switch between three different driving modes: Sport, Eco and City, giving you the power of three engines in one. When it comes to the diesel version, the powerful Quadrajet 1.3L engine delivers an exceptional performance and offers you intelligent burst of power, maximum fuel efficiency and a perfect balance of both. Zest is India's first-in-segment diesel sedan with F-Tronic (AMT) Automated Manual Transmission, which offers finger-touch, feather-light and clutch-free drive. Thus the performance part is quite different from Tata's earlier versions.
When we take a look at the interior, there is no compromise on comfort. Zest ensures more headroom and leg space compared to other vehicles of its class and the comfy seats make long drives more relaxed. The air-conditioning part is also upgraded to fully automatic and the infotainment system has been customised to accommodate your every need which ensures you stay connected, on-the-go. The exclusively designed system is loaded with best-in-class features like touchscreen control for music, temperature and voice-controlled actions.
The safety features are much similar to other cars of its class. Zest comes with dual SRS air bags and the advanced 9th Gen ABS with EBD ensures absolute safety in case of panic hard-braking by sensing the wheel speed and prevents wheel lock-up during braking, thus maintaining directional control. The Tata Zest comes in three variants like Revotron 1.2T (Petrol), Quadrajet 1.3L, 75 PS (Diesel) and the Quadrajet 1.3L, 90 PS (Diesel). The ex-showroom price of the petrol variants starts from `4,80,411 and `5,84,515 for the diesel variants.
