    Tata Zest is my personal favorite [as Sedan lover]. This car is built from ground-up except for the modified X1 platform and the diesel mill. The fit and finish are near-global standards. There are some segment leading features on this compact sedan – I hope Zest takes the VFM factor to an all-time-high when the prices are announced. I am eagerly waiting to experience the ride quality of this Zesty sedan.

    It’s our nation’s pride to see these next-gen cars representing India at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show and keep the Indian flag flying high.
