Tata Zest Mid Variants Get 75PS Diesel Engine

Snapshot: The company has expanded the 74bhp engine lineup by adding XM and XMS to it as well.

Tata Motors has silently carried out a couple of subtle mechanical changes to the Zest sedan in the country. The Zest was launched in August 2014 in four trim levels: XE, XM, XMS and XT. The diesel guise, apart from the aforementioned four trims, got two more variants in form of XMA and XTA. At the time of launch, only the XE variant in diesel fuel trim was offered with 74bhp engine, while rest of the five variants were available with 89bhp motor. But now, the company has expanded the 74bhp engine lineup by adding XM and XMS to it as well.

Tata Zest comes in a price range of Rs. 6.08-8.51 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) in the country. Besides adding the XM and XMS variants to the 74bhp lineup, the company has made the alloy wheels limited to the XT and XTA variants. For those asking, Tata Zest is placed in the sub-compact sedan segment, locking horns with the likes of Maruti Swift DZire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Figo Aspire and the upcoming Volkswagen Ameo. The Zest sedan has been doing fairly well for the company, despite the dominance of heavyweights like Maruti Swift DZire and Hyundai Xcent in the segment.

Speaking of the Fiat-sourced 1.3L 4-cylinder diesel engine, it generates power in two trims: 74bhp and 89bhp. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission with XE, XM, XMS and XT grades, while a 5-speed AMT gearbox does the duties at XMA and XTA variants. As for petrol variants, they are powered by the newly-developed 1.2L Revotron engine. It develops a maximum power of 89bhp and peak torque of 140Nm, while linked to 5-speed manual gearbox as standard across the entire variant lineup.
