In this competitive milieu, price plays a key role in deciding the fate. Tata has managed to play the price game well. Zest petrol model starts at Rs 464,000 and diesel variant starts at Rs 564,000. This pricing should shake the competition.

It also comes with a standard 3-year warranty and buyers can extended it by another three years.

Concerning all the aspects, Zest is certainly an eligible competitor in the segment with lots of positive vibes.

Let’s hope it could do some trick for the declining market share of Tata Motors.
