I think they are right up there with the international competitors with regards to the looks at least.

Great work Tata

Frankly speaking - NOT WORTH THE HYPE!

But yes, overall a well updated and deserved VISTA and MANZA! Oops, ZEST and BOLT!

Must say, a huge leap from the current TATA designs! Sad that Karl is not here to see the reactions! Hope they do well for his sake!

AMT transmission, LED DRLs, Harman Infotainment System, 2 Drive modes (Economy/Performance), streaming maps from a phone to the touchscreen panel, reading out of phone messages, etc., some of the features on offer.

EDIT - Both cars gets projector headlamps.


A close look at the front of the Tata Bolt:

Thanks to those who are sharing the pics. They certainly don't look "ALL NEW" to me but still better than the current lot of TATAs. Now the most important thing would be how do these vehicles drive!

Must say, the front 3 quarters of the zest looks really nice and much much better than the other compact sedans around! Nice work Tata!

Thumbs up Re: Tata Falcon hatchback, compact saloon to debut at 2014 Auto Expo

Really impressed with the looks of the Zest Compact Sedan ....the LED tail lamps are widely inspired by Jaguar.

I think , in current state, its the BEST LOOKING CS in India now ...Tata Motors has come a big way it seems in looks dept atleast.

Karl was on the right path ..sad that he is not here to see the reactions.

Properly impressed by the first look.

Both cars look really nice, although the alloys are a bit aftermarket-ish. Needs wheels at least an inch bigger and a better design.

Hopefully they're just as good to drive.

Both the cars, though evolutionary in appearance look good, breaking away from the old design & having a aggressive stance to them. It seems that Late Karl Sym had his stamp on the aggressive designs. I liked the way they have ditched Christmas tree tail lamps in Bold in particular.

Somehow, Zest looks only a bit better proportioned than Dzire IMO.

Thanks all for posting the pics.

Does Narain Kartkayan's presence here signify anything:

I bet he has worked on balanced handling of the vehicle. BD Sir, will you confirm a bit or two.

I like the way the Zest looks. Certainly the best looking sedan in its segment. And the best part is that it bears little resemblance with the Manza.

The features list is impressive, what with Harmon sound system, touch screens, automatic transmissions, etc. Looks like Tata Motors has covered all the bases. This should be able to hold it's own in the soon to be crowded compact sedan category.

Although I laud the efforts of the Tata Motors folk, none of the new launches have appealed to me. The Zest looks a little awkward and the rear end gets the typical "Oh,must keep under 4 meters" treatment, with flat bumper work, and some tacky, non-functioning diffuser that flatters nobody. Also, the display car seems to be shod on oversized wheels & tires.

The Bolt looks more pleasing because of it's better proportions and of course, the new detailing. But what's up with that XJ inspired blacked-out C-pillar Tata? In spite of owning Jaguar, they should keep the styling original.
