Launched in August-2014, Tata Zest although not a super hit model has managed to dent the sales of its rivals and currently stands in fourth position among the sub 4-metre sedans in the country.
Since the launch, the Zest was on-sale with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre turbocharged diesel engine available in 75 PS and 90 PS states of tune. Earlier the 75 PS diesel engine was only equipped on the entry-level variant (XE) and the rest of the above diesel variants were offered with the 90 PS motor.
Now to price the Zest competitively, Tata Motors has powered the second and third base variants – XM and XMS – with the low-spec engine of 75 PS, instead of the 90 PS motor. However, the XMA (AMT), XT and XTA (AMT) variants continue to be offered with the more powerful version of the motor. Additionally, alloy wheels are now restricted to only the XT and XTA variants of the Zest.
