Less than a week back, we brought to you images of an undisguised Tata Bolt hatchback. Now, our friend Ketan Malunjkar have sent us some Tata Zest AMT images that he recently tool in Pune. The latest Tata Zest AMT images give us a look at the car’s gear lever. These Tata Zest AMT image set also comprises of an image of the interior and another of the exterior. While these images do not reveal anything new, we are happy about the fact that work has been on at full swing on the Zest compact sedan. Tata Zest launch is expected to happen before this year’s festive season.

Talking about the upcoming model’s name, Tata Motors has said that the name Zest “signifies enthusiasm for life, for the sense of excitement, anticipation, and energy it brings, approaching life as an adventure. It is all about being vivacious and energetic”. The Zest compact sedan has been designed at Tata Motors’ design studios in Pune (India), Coventry (UK) and Turin (Italy).
The Zest is close to becoming the first diesel powered car in its segment to come with a 5 Speed F-Tronic Automated Manual Transmission. Powering this model would be the internationally acclaimed Fiat 1.3 litre common rail turbocharged diesel engine that has a max power of 90 PS @ 4000 RPM and a peak torque of 200 Nm between 1750 and 3000 rpm. The petrol variant will be powered by a new four cylinder 1.2 litre turbocharged Revotron unit that will have a max power of 85 PS @ 5000 rpm and a peak torque of 140 Nm.
