Tata Motors Launches Hatchback Zica


After a long wait and endless rumours, the Desi automobile manufacturer Tata Motors has finally unveiled its trump card – Zica hatchback – to stay afloat in the highly competitive Indian automobile market. In the run up to its launch, the company had announced the international star and footballer Lionel Messi as its brand ambassador and released several teaser images and shots to give the glimpse of the new hatchback. The official launch is going to take place in the first month of 2016.


New Makeover

Through these images and video shots, the die-hard fans of the Tata Motors got a brief view of the new hatchback. With the release of the official pictures, the look and feel of the new Zica has become quite clearer to the fans.  In tune with the changing times, the automobile maker has made certain changes to make the new vehicle stand its own stead in the crowd in this segment. Hence, the Zica is expected to compete well with the likes of Hyundai i10, Maruti Suzuki Celerio, and the Chevrolet Beat in the small car segment after the launch next year.

Look and Feel

Just like the other products in this segment such as the Zest and the Bold, Zica has the smiley grille on its front side. Over the period of some years, this feature has become the Tata Motor’s trademark. This grille sports a chrome strip underneath it. This new makeover works well to highlight the front side. Apart from this, it has on either side spearhead-shaped headlights.  The vehicle also has circular fog lamps with chrome surrounds on its comparatively larger bumpers. From sides, the new hatchback has a sharp crease along its shoulder, silver 10-spoke alloy wheels and OVRM-mounded turn indicators. On the hind side, it is nicely sculpted with the alignment of sharp lines on the boot lid with the taillights on either side. Moreover, there is a roof spoiler with blackened edges for further increasing the aesthetic appeal of the vehicle from behind.

Important Features

When we look at features under the hood, the Zica comes with two variants of the motor that power the vehicle. They are petrol and diesel variants. In case of the former, the capacity is 1.2 litres, and it comes full throttle with a force of 85PS and a torque of 110 Nm. On the other hand, the diesel variant comes with a capacity of 1.0 litre to cough up a maximum force of 70PS and a torque of 140Nm. Whatever be the engine type, it comes mated with a 5-speed manual transmission system to convey the force to the four wheels of the hatchback. The diesel variant vehicle is expected to be more efficient when compared to that with petrol variant.
