The first and obvious change is the new 3-spoke steering wheel of a similar design to the Zest and Bolt. Tata has ditched the oversized four-spoke steering wheel for a shorter diameter unit, which also gets integrated controls for the music system.

Up next is the center console which now gets a silver insert, and a new music system capable of Bluetooth, AUX-in and CD/MP3. Tata has also opted for light beige inserts for the dashboard, where the current model features a faux-wood finish. The same goes for the gearlever which is pasted with a silver insert.
