Has six diesel variants.
The Tata Zest was launched in August 2014 in three versions - 90 PS petrol, 90 PS diesel and 75 PS diesel. The petrol version was introduced in four variants - XE, XM, XMS and XT - and the diesel version in six variants- XE, XM, XMS, XMA, XT and XTA.
Since the launch the 75 PS diesel engine came only on the entry-level variant (XE) and the remaining five variants were offered with the 90 PS version of the same motor. Now the company provides the low-spec engine on the second and third base versions - XM and XMS - instead of the 90 PS motor. In addition, the company now offers alloy wheels on the high-end XT and XTA models only.
The Tata Zest petrol is powered by the 1.2-litre Revotron engine that produces 90 PS and 140 Nm, mated to five-speed manual transmission. The Tata Zest diesel is powered by the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre Quadrajet engine, mated to a five-speed manual or a five-speed AMT.
