Which is a better car to pick between Honda Jazz and Tata Zest?
By: Sanjeev on 23 february 2016
Honda Jazz is a hatchback whereas Tata Zest is a sedan, so your first difference comes here itself. Depending on your requirement, you will have to choose if a sedan is a better option for you or a hatchback. In terms of looks, though it is a very subjective matter, I would prefer a Honda Jazz with its bold character lines, the chrome grille and an aggressive looking front fascia. Inside both the cars are well designed with a high quality finishing. When it comes to driving the car, Tata Zest runs a little flat at times despite the claimed horsepower of 88.7bhp at 4000rpm. Honda Jazz on the other hand is quite spirited with its 98.6bhp at 3600rpm. In terms of the engine, Jazz gets the i-DTEC diesel engine whereas Tata Zest is powered by a Quadrajet. Personally, I would trust a Honda engine more than I would trust Tata with their smaller engines. So overall, according to me Honda Jazz would be a better pick but Tata Zest is also not a bad bet either.
