Tata Zest Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

Pros
  • Expansive feature list: projector headlamps, daytime running lamps, 8-speaker audio system - the lot!
  • Refined petrol and torquey diesel engines. Take your pick!
  • Ample legroom and shoulder room for rear occupants. Boot space is a healthy 390-litres as well.
  • Ride quality is among the best in its class. 170mm of ground clearance means you can be slightly careless on broken roads.
Cons
  • Hard plastics used inside the cabin. Takes away from the premium experience.
  • Lack of storage spaces in the interior
  • The automatic variant lacks creep mode. Needs manual throttle inputs to get going.

Stand Out Features

  • Safety. The Zest scored a respectable four-stars in the Global NCAP crash test.

CarDekho Verdict

The Zest is spacious, well-equipped and lets one choose from a likeable turbo-petrol and a dependable diesel engine. The diesel-automatic combo is good to have, but we wish it was equipped with a creep mode as well. Other positives include the solid exterior build, and the stellar 8-speaker audio system.

"On the whole, the Zest is a value-for-money offering which ticks all the essentials of being a well-rounded compact sedan."
