The Zica is based on a heavily revised Indica XO platform and sports a completely different styling as well, positioning it as one of the good looking Tata products.

Following the leaked images revealing the Zica’s design details over the weekend, Tata Motors has officially revealed its new hatchback in images ahead of the reveal later this week. The Zica that derives its name from the words ‘Zippy Car’ will be going on sale in early 2016 as a rival to the Maruti Celerio, Hyundai i10, Chevrolet Beat and the likes in the segment. The car breathes some fresh air in Tata’s lineup and certainly looks promising.

While we have already discussed the exteriors of the new Tata Zica, the interiors are equally new on the hatchback and get a clutter-free layout finished in a dual-tone black and grey colour scheme. The familiar three-spoke multi-function steering wheel from the Zest has been carried over while the centre console houses the infotainment unit with an LCD screen and air-con controls. The top-end trim gets gloss black finish on the centre console and air vents lending a premium appeal to the cabin.

Furthermore, you see chrome door handles, fabric seats, front and rear power windows, electrically opening ORVMs, twin-pod instrument cluster, adjustable front headrests among other bits. The Tata Zica packs in decent space with the rear also sporting appreciable legroom. Moreover, the hatchback will come loaded with all modern day goodies including Bluetooth telephony, 2-DIN audio system, dual front airbags with ABS and EBD, EPA steering, alloy wheels and a whole lot more.

In addition, the Tata Zica was also caught completely undisguised in its base variant sporting black bumpers, door handles and front grille and steel wheels. The base trim also misses out on the chrome bezels seen on the top-end variant. When Tata eventually phases out the Indica from smaller towns and commercial markets, the base trim will be taking its place as a modern day alternative with a competitive asking price. Expect prices for the Tata Zica to start from Rs. 3.5 lakhs (ex-showroom).
