We just drove the Zest but before the review, here is a quick look at the petrol and diesel variants of what might just be the most significant car launched by Tata Motors in latest times.

The fresh face is significantly better and seen here is what Tata Motors calls the humanity line, the two lines running across the top and bottom of the grille

This is the top of the line Tata Zest petrol identified by the LED driving lamps. Minor design legacy carried forward can be seen in wrap around head lamps

15-inch wheels and tyres packing up the wheel cavities and a striking side profile give the Zest an upmarket look and feel

The slingshot line which runs from the front fenders forms the taut shoulder line and wraps itself around the car. Intended to give a sense of dynamics, along with the chrome unwrap, it makes the rear look arresting

A clean, uniform design and a focused design direction that will be seen on subsequent Tata Motors passenger cars

Another design characteristic is the diamond DLO, a line that forms the outer edge of the front window and which meets the roofline, A-pillar and door

Significant improvements to the interiors of the Tata Zest (as seen in the petrol variant) headlined by clean, well-cut dash, steering wheel. Harman Kardon provided a entire fresh infotainment system, more details in upcoming review

The Tata Zest diesel uses the same instrument cluster as the petrol. The Harman Kardon audio system is a step lower than the one in the petrol, tho’ its unclear if this is the top of the line model or not. More details at time of launch. Note the AMT shifter!

Same instrument cluster in the Zest petrol and diesel. Difference is the tacho needle which turns crimson at specific rpm like in the Tata Manza

Tata Zest diesel gets the AMT transmission sourced from Fiat (Magnetti Marelli tech)

Harman Kardon designed this infotainment system specifically for developing markets with low cost needs. Still state of the art with a dense array of features. Tata Zest is very first to get this. Seen here is the lower spec unit sans the touchscreen

Variable geometry turbocharged diesel also marketed as Quadrajet by Tata Motors is not fresh to the range. Read all about feel, spectacle and efficiency in our upcoming review

Five-speed manual shift gate is unique to petrol, tho’ technically both petrol and diesel use the same manual gearbox. In the diesel, AMT system is utilised to actuate gears in this manual transmission, making the clutch pedal redundant

Brightworks on the Tata Zest include projector headlamps and LED DRLs
