    This is irony of Life, worst of all take the best of the numbers. India is a country where everything goes upside down, top 3 car manufactures globally are struggling in India. The car which in not best selling in any other country globally, is best selling in India. More quality cars like Honda, Hyundai, GM now Tata deliver much better quality in-terms of every aspect, still put together can’t reach numbers of dumbest car in the segment, LOL.

    Three Cheers to TATA

    Tata’s pricing with Zest is superb. Excellent value-for-money. I hope Tata will come out with new platforms and all-new cars and continue to offer at better prices than rivals. The indica platform is doing nothing good. They need an all-new thing at low weight, better handling, performance and efficiency. Good luck Tata.Joy

    The Tata Zest has great looking interiors, especially compared to the Honda Amaze.
