Honda Amaze vs Tata Zest vs Hyundai Xcent - Comparison Review

We had been itching to find out how the new entrants in the segment fared on the road, so we took the Amaze, Xcent and Zest for a spin. As for why the Swit Dzire was left out of the comparison, for starters, it is a comparatively old product. Read Tata Zest Review in Detail

Tata Zest is best car from all angles

Tata Zest is very good car in all features. I am very proud to purchase this car and its local mileage is 22km for a litre.

Best Features and decent looking - Excellent mileage

I was a lot frightened when everyone was advising me not to take TATA vehicles - But believe me or not THIS IS THE BEST SEDAN..I have driven Dzire and Xcent but this is one of the best performing. Mileage - I am not exaggerating but i have got a decent 17kmpl in city driving to my office everyday and this is by far the best you can get from a sedan. Performance: I have been driving this in the city in traffic and outer ring road and never felt the lag ever till date.. You just need to shift your gears perfectly as per the traffic and this one can cruise easily. Features: Music system is perfect at the higest volume also - It never gives the distorted audio at any sound.. AC was never more than a single or double point out of 6 points as that was freezing in hot summer too. Cost: I have got the Diesel top end with everything loaded & This is little costly as dealers get too much greedy on the commission - I have to pay 9.8 Lakhs ON ROAD (Including AMC and Zero maintenance for four years or 45000 Kilometres) in Hyderabad

Tata Zest is best car from all angles

Tata Zest is very good car in all features. I am very proud to purchase this car and its local mileage is 22km for a litre.

Poor Quality of parts

I am owning this car for the past 3and half years and it was with the service for almost 2 to 3 months. AC coil, Alternator and clutch plate has been changed within 30000KM. AC is not working at all now. They need to improve their Quality of parts to international standard.

All TATA cars are =Donkey , world Worst cars dont purchase and dont spoil your Life.

TATA is one of the Gambler theft the Money from People and after that not responding .
