The car is made out of the modified Tata XO platform on which the Indica eV2 is based. The car features an 8-speaker audio system engineered by Harman and has a generous boot space of 242 litres. In addition, there are many storage spaces for knick knacks. Equipped with a range of safety features like dual airbags, stability control, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and corner stability control, the hatchback impresses more than any other car in this segment. Like its bigger sibling, Tata Bolt, Tata offers riding modes ‘City’ and ‘Eco’ in Zica, the ‘Sports’ mode is absent though.
Tata Zica will be available with petrol and diesel engine options, both would be 3-cylinder motors (1.2 L petrol motor and a 1.0 L three-cylinder diesel engine). The petrol engine produces an impressive 85 PS of power and 114 Nm of torque while the diesel produces 70 PS of power and generous 140 Nm of torque. While both variants would be launched with 5-speed manual gearbox, Tata may provide an option of AMT later. It’s expected that the petrol would deliver 16 – 18 kmpl while the diesel should offer about 25 kmpl.
In terms of the way Zica looks, Tata has outdone themselves once again and it’s safe to say that the car is the best looker in Tata’s stable. The honeycomb grille in the centre is flanked by sweptback headlamps, which make the car look extremely appealing. The footprint and proportion are just right with a distinct and very noticeable character lines on the side while the rear features sharp-looking headlamps. The overall design looks unassuming and fresh. Expect Tata India to price the car competitively with price of the base variants starting at 3.5 lakh.
