Tata Motors has launched sedan Zest

Tata Motors unveiled its first new models in four years - a sedan Zest and a hatchback Bolt - banking on the two small cars to reverse the company's sliding passenger car sales in the face of growing foreign competition.
Tata Motors has launched a new variant, 'Tata Vista Tech VX' in the Tata Vista line up. This would be top-end variant in the hatchback Vista's variant lineup. The variant would feature centrally-mounted 6.5-inch touchscreen multimedia system with audio, video with DVD, USB and Bluetooth compatibility. Furthermore, It would facilitate the occupants by connecting five mobiles at the same time. Additionally, exquisite features like aux connection, navigation system and back-lit steering-mounted controls would further grace this hatchback. Tata has introduced it with a new shade - Blue Chill and it would be powered by Tata's Quadrajet powertrain. It is launched at a price of Rs. 6.19 Lakh (Ex. Showroom, Mumbai).
Sales of Tata passenger vehicles in India fell an annual 37 per cent in the first nine months of the financial year that ends in March, according to data from Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), the steepest drop in an ailing industry headed for a second straight year of declining sales.
Tata Motors will showcase the Bolt and Zest, to be made at its Pune factory in western India, at the Indian auto expo that starts on Wednesday.
The cars - a compact sedan 'Zest' and a hatchback 'Bolt' - will be powered by the company's new Revotron engine series. The two cars are based on the company's enhanced X1 platform, on which the existing Vista and Manza models are built.
Zest would be available in both petrol and diesel versions. The diesel variant will come with F-Tronic 90 PS powered engine. Bolt, meanwhile, will come only with petrol engine.
Both the new cars have various new features, including the EPAS (electronic power assisted system).
