Tata Zica-based compact sedan – Rendering
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
To replace the Tata Indigo eCS in the private car market.
The compact sedan version of the Tata Zica has been rendered by MotorBeam. The latter is scheduled for launch in January and the sedan version is expected to be shown at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida in February.
It is to be noted that Tata Motors is the pioneer of the sub-4 metre sedan segment through the Indigo CS, which was launched at the 2008 Auto Expo. Though the Indica duo will be replaced by the Zica twins, the former will continue to be sold for the commercial market. It is safe to expect the Zica’s features to find a place on the sedan, such as the 8-speaker 2-DIN audio system with AUX, USB, and Bluetooth, multifunction steering wheel, Dual front airbags and ABS.
The Zica CS, whose name is yet to be confirmed, will be powered by the same engines as the hatchback model, which includes the 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron petrol engine that produces 85 PS at 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm at 3,500 rpm, and the 1.05-litre three-cylinder Revotorq diesel engine that generates 70 PS at 4,000 rpm and 140 Nm at 1,800-3,000 rpm.
