Zest

Wrapup

 Cover the badges on this car, and the fit and finish would make one feel as if this is a Europen or Japanese product. Fantastic seats, large cabin space and a car with switchable drive modes. Automatic diesel is also available. If we are nitpicking, the cabin storage space has to be worked upon and improvement in sales and service are probably the only factors holding the sales of Zest.

Quick Review

Bolt with a boot is what we call the new Zest from Tata motors which was first showcased along with its hatch sibling during the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. This sub four meter compact sedan borrows everything from its hatch sibling, or vice-versa, apart from minute difference at the front and yes a major one at the rear. Bulging bonnet lines at the centre makes this sedan a little aggressive at the front which makes way for a chrome outlined front grille. Unlike the Bolt, Zest does not use an all black setup here instead it opts for a more plush and premium appeal with chrome outlines and honeycomb styled mesh grille which houses the Tata badge at the centre. Its sweptback projector headlamps appear quite stylish without a smoked look ( like in the Bolt) and it surely adds a wide appeal to this compact sedan. Tata has worked on lifting its appeal by making the exterior a little premium which is not really seen in this segment. Flaunting a sporty front bumper with large airdams, you also get angular daytime running LED strips at the corner on the fog lamp cluster. Use of chrome continuous at the window lines as well which is well met with defined belt and shoulder lines that gives it a dynamic look from the side and also highlights the length as well. Complimenting its side profile are the 15 inch multi-spoke alloy wheels that are quite pleasing to the eye and the biggest positive for this sedan remains a fatter tyre (185/60 R15) which doesn’t appear deprived against its bulging wheel arches, which was the case with Tata’s Manza sedan. Despite the boot being an extra addition on this drive, Tata has done a neat job in aligning the overall design from the sides and from the roof that beautifully flows onto a crisp boot crease onto the back. The oval shaped wraparound tail lights connected via thick chrome bar are quite decent to look at and they also generate a wider look which makes the overall package appear attractive on the outside.
