Zica, Tata's much-awaited car, was unveiled on 1st of December in Goa and this new hatchback is expected to be launched on 15th January 2016.

The vehicle will join the passenger car portfolio of the company that will surely hit the market with a competitive price tag. Also, lots of practical features like two powerful engines, zippy driving modes, spacious interiors, DesignNext language and safety aspects would make it one of the most desirable hatchbacks in the country.

The car will be competing against popular Hyundai i10 and Maruti Celerio in the segment.

So taking all these aspects in mind, let's have a look on 5 reasons why you would want to buy Tata Zica.

Indo-European Design:


Tata design studios based in Pune, Italy and the UK have collectively done efforts to sketch the car's diagram.

The new design language of Tata known as DesignNext philosophy is associated with the car.

Bold and sculpted looks, aggressive stance and creases are all part of the same.

The car features hood overhang, three-dimensional headlamps and lower designed windshield wipers. Overall the car doesn't appears similar to the other cars in Tata's line-up rather it looks European in nature.

Moreover, the car has been provided in 6 striking colors, the Platinum Silver, Sunburst Orange, Espresso Brown, Pearlescent White, Berry Red and Striker Blue.

Multiple Engine options:


Zica is equipped with both the petrol and diesel engine options that come with a three cylinder configuration. The inclusion of both the fuel options will certainly keep it par in the competition.

These motors are sourced out of Revotron and Revotorq, the in-house developed family of engines by Tata.

The 1.2-litre Revotron petrol mill produces 85PS at 6000 rpm along with a peak torque of 114Nm at 3500 rpm.

On the other hand, the 1.05-litre Revotorq diesel motor delivers 70 PS at 4000 rpm and a maximum torque ranging between 1800-3000 rpm.

Both the power plants are expected to come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while the AMT will also be optionally available.

Driving Modes:


Zica, the Zippy car features different driving modes for an impressive fuel efficiency and improved power delivery.

The Multi-Drive mode provides the City and Eco driving modes to select from.

This is one of the features found in Bolt and Zest and the first in the segment as well. So it definitely gives an edge over its rivals.

Fair Dimensions:


One more reason for picking the Zica is its great dimensions. Tata Zica measures 3746 mm in length, 1647 mm in width, 1535 mm in height and gets a wheelbase of 2400 mm.

The vehicle comes with 170 mm of ground clearance and also owns a large luggage compartment of 242 litres.

Overall, Zica is taller than Hyundai i10 and would appeal most of the first time/small-car buyers.

Comfort, Entertainment and Safety features:


Tata offers an array of features in Zica in terms of entertainment, comfort and safety.

The infotainment unit from Harman is in the company's ConnectNext line-up.

The segment's first eight speaker system (4 speakers and 4 tweeters) and smartphone compatible stereo along with the Navigation app & the Juke-Car app are some interesting features to go for.

On the safety front, dual front airbags, corner stability control, advanced 9th generation ABS with EBD and an advanced Dual Path Suspension are offered in the Zica for the better protection. On the comfort side, steering mounted audio controls, electrically adjustable ORVM, roof antenna, driver side pocket, cup holders and many more practical utility aspects are integrated.
