Tata Bolt XMS - First Choice of Buyers in Entire Lineup

Snapshot: According to Tata dealers, 1.2T Revotron petrol engine and XMS trim in both petrol and diesel guise is the most sought after in the entire line-up.

Tata Bolt - launched on January 22, 2015 - is raking in some good numbers for the company in the premium hatchback segment. Sales-wise, it is the toughest segment as giants like Maruti Swift, Hyundai Elite i20 and Volkswagen Polo fall in the segment and are best sellers for the respective automakers. According to company dealers, Revotron has created most of the buzz and XMS trim in both petrol and diesel guise is the most sought after in the entire line-up.

Quite identical to the Zest sedan, the 1.2T Revotron turbocharged motor is working wonders for the Bolt hatch. It has registered countless enquiries and though, it sounds quite unbelievable but petrol models have recorded more bookings than the diesel ones. In terms of variants, the XMS variant in both petrol and diesel guise is the first choice of buyers. It is due to the fact that it comes loaded with exquisite safety features in form of ABS and dual front airbags. For your information, only the XMS and range-topping XT trims boast such premium safety features. Tata Bolt XMS trim is priced at Rs. 5.40 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs. 6.34 Lakhs for the diesel variant, against the top-end XT trim's Rs. 6.05 Lakhs (petrol) and Rs. 6.99 Lakhs (diesel).

Although, Bolt XMS trim misses out on some high-end luxury features like 15-inch alloys, the touchscreen for the Harman system, automatic climate control and projector headlamps as compared to the XT trim, but still it is turning out to be the best variant in term of sales. What makes XMS a better choice over XT, despite losing out on these features, is it's value-for-money proposition. Buyers are quite happy and satisfied with the Bolt's performance, comfort and safety features, and infotainment system. The response has been overwhelming and Tata is gradually returning to rule the roost, which it forfeited around half a decade back.
