DriveSpark's Thought About The New Tata Zest Premio Edition
While the Tata Zest is an ageing model compared to the new Tata Tigor, the Zest continues to impress many car buyers for its cabin space and equipment.
The Tata Zest Premio competes with the likes of new Maruti Dzire, Volkswagen Ameo, upcoming new Honda Amaze and the Ford Aspire in India.
Tata Motors has chosen to celebrate selling 85,000 units of the Zest with the Premio special edition hoping to increase its sales in India.
While the Tata Tigor commands better sales for the company, the Tata Zest is not expected to be discontinued or replaced anytime soon.
