Tata Zest to launch in India on August 12

Snapshot: Pre-launch bookings of the upcoming sedan have already commenced for Rs 21,000.

The all-new Tata Zest sedan has finally got a confirmed date for its commercial debut in the Indian market. The compact sedan is slated to launch in the country on the 12th of August, while the pre-bookings for the model have already commenced across all Tata showrooms since the last week of July for Rs 21,000. 

The Tata Zest compact sedan is based on the Manza platform and is the first of the new generation of Tata cars that will be followed with the launch of the Bolt hatchback. The production of the Zest sedan has reportedly, already begun at Tata Motors’ plant in Ranjangaon in Maharashtra. 

Under the hood of the Tata Zest, expect to see a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that is rated 75PS and 145Nm and a 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced diesel engine that puts out 75PS and 190Nm. Both engines have been coupled to a 5-Speed manual transmission. The diesel variant however, will also be offered with an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT.)

In the Indian market, the Tata Zest will replace the ageing and outdated Tata Indigo CS, which was the first sub-4 metre compact sedan ever made in India and, did exceedingly well in the market. However, with the onslaught of newer models such as the Honda Amaze, the Swift DZire and the Hyundai Xcent, Tata Motors needed to up its game, since the Indigo CS was falling short in front of the newer rivals. Apart from the aforementioned competitors, the Zest will also go up against the upcoming Ford Figo and the Datsun Go-based sub-4 metre compact sedan. 

The vehicle will come with a 6-year warranty and is expected to be priced between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 7.5 lakh.
