Tata Motors have done a Maruti by taking one of their mass market cars and adding some style to it but no substance. The Zest Sportz Edition commemorates 2 years in the Indian market and also celebrates the 50,000 unit milestone.
Tata Motors has been working very hard lately to ensure that their new age vehicles recently launched by the company are successful. But the efforts of the company are not producing the desired fruits as seen in the monthly sales charts. Thus the Indian company has decided to take a leaf out its competitors playbook and launch a smartened-up ‘Sportz’ version of its compact sedan Tata Zest.
Tata Motors has come out with the Zest Sportz Edition variant of its sub-4 metre sedan. Launched to commemorate 2 years in the Indian market and also to celebrate 50,000 units milestone, the Tata Zest Sportz Edition adds some style to the car with the use of some additional hardware. The Special Edition adds sports red, black and grey graphics, red front, side and rear skirting, red colour ORVMs, rain visors and alloy wheels.
The Tata Zest Sportz Edition is a dealer fitment and can be installed on any variant. To further sweeten the deal, the company is also offering a special EMI scheme of Rs. 3999/- per month, free insurance worth Rs. 33,000/-, exchange bonus worth Rs. 30,000/- and other benefits of upto Rs. 68,000/-.
The changes are purely cosmetic and the car remains mechanically the same as before. It is still powered by the Revotron 1.2T turbo petrol engine which makes 90 PS of power and peak torque of 140 Nm. The diesel options include a 75 PS tune for the base variant and 90 PS for the higher variants. The petrol engine features a ‘Multi-Drive Mode’ with engine maps to chose between Sport, Eco and City modes.
