What will be the difference between this and Zest? Both sub 4M sedans, Zest a premium offering and this one will be a budget offering?

Yes Zest is a premium offering with 4 cylinder engines, more power,more features. Major difference will be width ,in Zest you can comfortably seat 3 person on rear seats not Sway.Sway will be tight squeeze for Sway.

Any information on the engine tuning of sway? Will it have the same tuning as the Zica or a different tuning like bolt and zest siblings?

Looks stunning, it can garner a very good sales number due to its market positioning as the most affordable sedan in our country.

There is no mention of power and torque figures of diesel engine in official note. Does it translate to different state of tune from zica?(like zest and bolt)

Man does she look stunning. Love the boot door design, the spoiler position and smoked headlights. Could do with a better alloy pattern though.

Are those Audi-like LED turn indicators at the bottom of the front headlamps?

Neat boot integration! The rear is somewhat similar to the Zest, but the flowing roof line makes it look unique and different compared to other sub-4m sedans. The interior picture reveals a climate control system.

How does the boot open? Is it a liftback like the Accent Viva or a sedan like the Zest?

Looks like it operates like Zest as we can see a gap near the right bottom end of rear wind screen.

That's true, but note where they've placed the rear spoiler. The position of the rear spoiler is more reminiscent of a hatchback than a sedan.

There is still some, albeit small hope left that this will be the first sub-4m liftback in the country. In such a case, the Sway / Kite 5 can carve out a niche for itself among sub-4m sedans.

Looks nice. How the Zika virus outbreak does not matter. Launch this first TATA ji


This will surely pose a serious threat to Zest i feel. Both being sub 4m, and with side and back profile being same, Kite looks aggressive from the front and may be cheaper too.
