The design and styling is not very distant from the Tata Zica hatchback, which will have its name changed prior to launch. The sub-4 metre sedan will be powered by a petrol or a diesel engine: the all-new 1.2-litre Revotron three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 85 PS and 114 Nm of torque and a 1.05-litre Revotorq three-cylinder diesel engine (Tata has not announced the diesel engine's power and torque outputs for the KITE 5). Both engines will get the Multi-Drive driving modes though (City and Eco driving modes).

The KITE 5 compact sedan measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,647 mm in width, 1,535 mm in height and 2,450 mm in wheelbase. It rides on 15-inch alloy wheels and gets a 35 liter fuel tank. Tata has also announced that the KITE 5 compact sedan will ride on Independent lower McPherson strut with coil spring at the front and semi-independent twist beam with dual-path strut at the rear.
