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.
