Pros : Has shown improvement

Cons : Overpriced comparitively

Look and Style: I would rate it as average.

Comfort: The comfort level is fine.

Pickup: Pickup is good if not great.

Mileage: It gives a decent mileage.

Best Features: Improved looks as it was lacking in all Tata cars.

Needs to improve: Looks, Fit and finish of exterior and interior.

Overall Experience: It has been fair Tata has tried to improve somewhat in their portfolio but still a lot of things are required to change the mindset of people and their perception about the Tata cars. If we compare it with other competitors like Honda Amaze and Maruti Dzire. I must say Tata must review the price, considering the fact that Tata has not good image in terms of service support, quality, etc. Tata has lost the trust of car buyers. It would be very important to gain the trust by offering good product with competitive price.

    Saw on Auto-car video that the touch screen does not respond too soon and has a glare on it.Does the touch screen come with all the models,both P and D? Have always been a Tata fan for the desi brand value, although the service support at the local showroom(HubliKarnataka) has much to desire. Hope TATA improves on this. Will wat for more reviews before buying Zest.btw which is best, the Revotron or the AFT deisel?

  • ashutosh |08 Sep,2014 10:41:09 PM

    Recently bought the Zest XT diesel ...it's worth....and better than any other car in this segment.....for me touch is working well...sound quality is good.

    Sir , i think Zest is better than all these other brands. Good comfort level , Good mileage . With this model Tata has tried to improve the mindset of people and their perception about the Tata cars .

    booked one. expecting delivery on 3rd of october.

  • Mahesh |16 Sep,2014 03:25:48 PM

    The reviewer has tata fobia, any one if they compare Honda Amaze, Xcent, Desire and Zest, Zest has an edge. -Best security feature compared to the top/Mid variant of other 3, Zest offers EBD/ABS and 2 airbags. -Alloys wheels to all, only Top variant in Amaze /Xcent and dezire As per my exper, the people will say same for Polo and Fabia, noresale value etc etc, who ever is going to purchase best way is to visist showroom and compare.

    Banibrata Mukherjee |18 Sep,2014 10:38:51 PM

    Mr bipin singh is misleading people with his jaundiced views on the TATA ZEST. TATA knows the fierce competition zest is going to face from world renowned brands. and so designed,and perfected the car to live up to the challenge.There is every reason to believe that TATA has done a good job.I have booked and going to get it soon.

    Srikanth |20 Sep,2014 10:52:29 PM

    That's true... I shifted from VW to Tata....it's much worthy .....only one thing it lags with VW is build quality....of course all other brands except child's of VW also can't compete ....

  • K V L RAMESH |17 Sep,2014 07:24:48 PM

    Mr. Bipin Kumar Singh deliberately writen wrong information i.e., Overpriced car, because in cardekho only you campare with Tata Zest Quadrajet 1.3 is 6.99 Lacs, Swift Dezire Zdi 7.32 Lacs and Honda Amaze VXI DTECH 7.5 Lacs, NO WAY COMPARE WITH OTHERS. IT IS CHEAPER AND WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION and with many features. People like Mr. Bipin Kumar should not give mislead information. Information should be transparetn and without bias.

  • Dr Suman Ghosh |21 Sep,2014 09:57:34 PM

    Can you give some information about it's petrol Revotron engine? Can I Believe on it's performance compare to Hundai Kappa engine??

  • kundan kishore |24 Sep,2014 02:05:16 PM

    Well, Mr. Singh, I recently had test driven the Zest Petrol. OOOOOOO MMMMM GGGGGGGG can't believe the pickup, It pierce the traffic like a bullet. No external noise in the cabin and it remain cool and calm. Can't say about mileage but as per the technician, it will deliver 15+ in city condition, if it is correct, it is going to be perfect one.

    mayur |18 Jul,2015 09:48:34 AM

    M planing to buy zest, but please sugest me, whether should I go for zest or not..plz frnds, and main thing is mileage? ?

  • Anna |24 Sep,2014 09:38:02 PM

    Worst ever comment one would make, other competitors are not even offering the safety features like ABS and air bags at this price range

  • Sudhir kumar verma |25 Sep,2014 03:02:21 PM

    I have test drive Tata Zest and it is a well designed and perfect car for all age people.Very good pick up and loaded with all safety features compared with other cars of same price range. It is an Indian Car and I am proud of it.

  • Shashank Khanna |25 Sep,2014 04:12:50 PM

    All Good in Zest i.e. Space, looks, features - Only drawback which fears me too buy is after sale service, no road side assistance, milage in comparison to other sedan's is less and also while driving vibration in gear which i observed. Already booked but just fear about after effects as Tata has no goodwill and resale market. Also please clarify as most of the people told me that Tata is known for Diesel Engine don't buy Petrol is it true. Is it fact or Myth.

    Srikanth |30 Sep,2014 10:57:33 PM

    Shashank.....don't worry man....it's worth buy....I have driven 1k diesel top end.....no issues and you will enjoy the drive......trust me I own VW as we'll.....

    Shashank Khanna |12 Oct,2014 10:56:23 PM

    Thanks Sri will waiting for Delivery on 21st Oct

  • Chandresh |27 Sep,2014 03:58:34 PM

    Prices is resonable, auto verson in diesel just 7.1 l amaging, for safety point of view Tata is no 1 (except wv), I am waiting for its performance. My relative has booked and soon will delivered. I keenly intrested in Zest auto diesel. I have already one auto petrol car,

  • vijay |29 Sep,2014 09:23:16 PM

    I am bit confused between diesel and petrol zest. my running is not much as i am not frequent traveller so can any body suggest me which variant i should go with....

    Srikanth |30 Sep,2014 10:59:32 PM

    If you travel less than 1500 kms per month..go for petrol.....

  • NITISH |01 Oct,2014 10:23:47 AM

    Anybody received Zest Petrol??? I want to know about its mileage.

  • Bharat Bhushan |03 Nov,2014 10:16:11 PM

    My monthly runnin is 1600-1800 km . Please suggest me should i go for petrol or diesel variant. Also i am alos getting negative feedback for Tata for after sales service and resale value. I have taken taken test drive of Tata Zest and other brands like Dzire/Amaze/Etios/Xcent/Polo and believe not i found Zeest is most comfortable in driving comfort, pickup , lowest Engine Noise and amazing features. Please suggest should i ignore negative feedback around for Tata and Go for Zest.

  • RK |26 Feb,2015 03:15:01 PM

    Can any body suggest me to should i go for Xcent (Hyundai) Diesel or Tata Zest Diesel

    girish |26 Mar,2015 01:08:23 AM

    Go for tata zest such a great car .value for money

  • Hemanth |26 Mar,2015 03:53:18 PM

    When Comapre to Dzire,Amaze,Xcent Zest is the best Because it is more Space for rear seats than Dzire And Excellent Interior than Amaze and More BHP than Xcent and last Zest Have Projector Head Lamps,LED Lights,Decent Milage,9th Gen ABS with Corning Stability. In Dzire,Amaze,Xcent you want Get 9th ABS.Finally what you want in compact sedan Zest is give you

  • capt BM S Sahni |11 Oct,2015 06:25:58 PM
