Tata Zest Review


Launched in 2014, the Tata Zest was the company’s first all new product under its Horizonext product strategy. It’s widely admired for its premium styling, class-leading features and competent engines. Designed with inputs from Tata’s design studios in Pune, Turin (Italy) and Coventry (UK), the compact sedan looks more premium than most Tata cars below Rs. 10 lakh. It gets new signature grille with the new ‘Humanity Line’, trapezoidal lower air dam, projector headlamps with chrome accents, ‘The Diamond DLO’ and ‘Slingshot Line’ on side profile and various other styling elements.

The interior, too, looks a lot better than many of its rivals thanks to the material quality and features. The car offers best-in-class features such as Harman’s ConnectNext infotainment system with 5-inches touchscreen, reverser parking sensor display, voice commands etc. Powering the Zest is Tata’s self-developed 88.73bhp,1.2-litre MPFi turbocharged Revotron engine and the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre, four-cylinder Quadrajet diesel motor. The latter one churns out 88.73bhp with 200Nm. Power is transmitted to the front-wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission and an F-Tronic AMT (automated manual transmission) gearbox. 

Further to this, read Tata Zest Road Test details by our expert.


Based on the company’s new ‘DesignNext’ philosophy, the Zest looks more contemporary and premium than previous Tata cars. On the front end, the car features new signature grille with the new ‘Humanity Line’, trapezoidal lower air dam, projector headlamps with chrome accents, fog lamps, daytime running lights and pronounced hood. The side profile gets ‘The Diamond DLO’ and ‘Slingshot Line’. The bold shoulder creases and wraparound rear styling further enhance its appeal. Other styling elements include a new pair of 15-inches alloy wheels, LED taillights, rear view mirrors, rear bumper with black treatment and well-integrated boot.


Similar to the exterior, the car shows significant improvement inside over previous Tata car models. Having a long wheelbase, the compact sedan offers ample cabin space. The height adjustable driver seat and supportive rear bench offer immense comfortable. It gets piano black finishing on center console, instrument cluster and glove box and silver finishing around AC vents and throughout the cabin that add a premium touch to its appearance. Feature list include Harman’s ConnectNext infotainment system with 5-inches touchscreen (3-inches on base-model), audio system with Bluetooth, iPod/USB and Aux-in connectivity, reverser parking sensor display, voice commands features and many more.

Engine and Transmission

The Zest is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. Powering the petrol variants is Tata’s self-developed 1.2-litre MPFi turbocharged Revotron engine that churns out a maximum power of 88.73bhp at 5, 000rpm and 140Nm of torque at 1, 750rpm to 3, 500rpm. The diesel trims are powered by a 1.3-litre, four-cylinder Quadrajet engine, which produces 88.73bhp with 200Nm. A 5-speed manual transmission and an F-Tronic technology enabled AMT (automated manual transmission) gearbox are on offer. 

Performance and Handling

Both the powertrains are refined, and have well-controlled NVH levels. The 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine delivers instant power with linear supply at all RPMs, but it lacks mid-range punch. Tata’s Revotron unit is first-in-segment to offers three drive mode selector - Eco, City and Sport. The new AMT gearbox is a great convenience, but isn’t smooth at high revs. The ride is balanced, thanks to the agile suspension that absorbs bumps with ease.

Braking System

The front disc brakes and rear drum brakes provide adequate stopping power. ABS (anti-lock braking system) and EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) further enhance its braking capabilities, though the pedal brake could have been slightly more responsive.


The 1248 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 20 kmpl in city and 22 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 16 kmpl on urban roads and 18 kmpl and freeways, respectively.

Safety Features

The Tata’s compact sedan doesn’t just deliver impressive mileage; it also ensures a safe drive. The car comes equipped with a plenty of safety features such as front dual airbags, ABS (anti-lock braking system) + EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution), perimetric alarm system, front seat belt pre-tensioner with load limiter, front and rear fog lamps, immobilizer and speed dependent auto door lock system. Though, one must note that the aforementioned features vary variant-wise.  


With premium styling, best-in-class features and frugal engines, the all-new Tata Zest makes a perfect deal for buyers. It’s an absolute fun-to-drive city car.


Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire Vs Tata Zest

The new Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire gets improved styling and additional features. It drives well, and returns an impressive fuel economy. The Tata Zest, on the other hand, is one of the better looking cars in its segment. It offers a well-equipped and premium interior, coupled with superb ride quality and drivability.


  1. Premium styling
  2. Well-designed and comfortable interior
  3. Lots of features
  4. First diesel-automatic compact sedan in India
  5. 1.2-litre petrol engine performance
  6. Impressive ride and driving dynamics
