Maruti has finally launched their new 2015 Dzire facelift in India which comes with some new equipment, enhanced fuel efficiency and also an increment in price. Yesterday, we shared with you how much has Maruti increased prices of the new Dzire wrt the old Dzire variant to variant and today, let us give you a clear picture on how it stands against the competition.
Tata has launched their Bolt hatchback in India at prices which are higher than our expectations. We compared them with its sibling Zest’s original launch prices as well its current prices to share the differences with you…
Before the Zest, it was the Manza and the Indigo eCS that took up the mettle for Tata in the C-segment. While initially, Manza did sell in decent numbers, however it lost its sheen with the oncoming of more contemporary cars in the country.
Who would have thought in their right mind that a Tata sedan would overtake as formidable a rival as the Amaze – a brilliant product from one of the best car manufacturers in the world. No one, including us. But the fact is, ladies and gentlemen, that Tata’s all new sedan, the Zest, did sell more than the Honda Amaze last month. That should tell you how amazing (sorry, couldn’t resist that) Tata’s Zest really is!
The Indian company sold 3,524 units of the Zest while the Japanese manufacturer managed 3,482 units of the Amaze sedan. And mind you, it’s not that Honda is not able to manufacture the required number of units of Amaze; it’s true for the City, but not for the Amaze.
Manufacturers have perhaps realized that a camouflaged vehicle will grab attention like little else would. That explains why a car, already launched a couple of months back, is being tested on roads with a partial disguise. Oh, another small reason could be that the car in question in this story, the Tata Zest, could be the petrol ‘AMT’ variant!
