This is the same platform that now underpins the Indica and Indigo eCS, however, the new XO platform has been rigorously modified for better stability and strength. The Zica adopts an all-new Tata design philosophy that looks modern, young and stylish, going by the teaser images.
A total of two engines will be on offer – a detuned 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Revotron petrol engine and an all-new 1.05-litre 3-cylinder common rail diesel engine. Paired to the engine is a choice between a 5-speed manual gearbox or an automated manual transmission (AMT), LPG and CNG is also likely to be available. It will compete with the likes of Chevrolet Beat, Hyundai i10, Maruti Celerio and Maruti WagonR.
