Tata Zest spy shots in hi-res reveals new details before launch (Photos)
Tata Zest spied yet again, this time we’ve got very high resolution images, thanks to avid RushLane reader Yagnessh. He says Zest was doing 140 kmph and above while he got out through sunroof of his Mercedes S class and snapped away.
Photos clearly show projector headlamp, front grille, fog lamp provision, turn indicator integrated into ORVM, tail light and alloy wheel. Further, interior pictures reveal the chrome lining around air conditioner vents and instrument cluster, thickness of which Mr. Cyrus Mistry suggested his Pune team to reduce. Steering wheel looks glossy (see picture 019); is this revised version?
Tata Zest houses all-new 1.2 litre petrol Revotron engine with 3 driving modes for better efficiency in intended driving style. Sport, Eco and City driving modes will optimise engine behaviour to favour respective driving conditions.
Tata Bolt also features 1.2 Revotron engine with same driving modes. It will produce 85 PS max. power @ 5,000 rpm and 140 Nm peak torque @ 1,750 – 3,000 rpm. 1.3 litre Multijet diesel mill from Fiat will also be on offer in Tata Zest and Bolt. It makes 90 PS max. power @ 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm peak torque @ 1,750 rpm.
Zest diesel will get Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) while petrol variant will get manual gearbox only. Transmission options in Bolt is still unclear; AMT on petrol variant could be favourable.
