The Tata Bolt hatchback is all set to launch tomorrow. Meanwhile, a subtly kitted up example found its way to a dealer. Finished in white, the body kit adds the usual – a lower lip to the front bumper, side skirts and a rear diffuser-like attachment. Inside, the seats are draped in black, fabric upholstery with red highlights and Bolt logos. To round off the whole package, the alloy wheels also have been re-sprayed in grey. Tata has also previewed this kit in the past in a couple of press images.
To be made available in both petrol and diesel guises, the Tata Bolt petrol will be the segment’s first hatchback to be powered by a turbocharged, 1.2-litre MPFI engine that will be equipped with selectable driving modes while the Diesel version will be powered by a 1248 cc, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. Tata hasn’t skimped on safety and has equipped the car with ABS, Corner stability control and Airbags. It will also feature a touchscreen multimedia system by Harman that will recognize voice commands, play videos, read out SMS notifications, include touch control for the air-conditioner and smart phone based navigation via mapmyindia. The Bolt will also come fitted with first-in-segment smoked projector headlamps.
