The center console for both cars features a Harman developed infotainment system.

Under the hood, there is a tweaked suspension system and should offer better ride quality as well as dynamics.

Another big change is the adoption of an electric power steering that comes in place of the Vista’s hydraulic unit. The EPS system, developed by ZF, is said to improve ease of use and should also bring with it small gains in efficiency.

Tata Motors is organizing a pre-Auto Expo press conference in New Delhi. The company will preview its future cars and technologies at the exclusive press event. The cars and technologies unveiled at the press con will later be exhibited at the 2014 Auto Expo as well. While nothing specific has been said about the products and tech to be showcased, the invite clearly suggests that it will be a multi-product, multi new tech event. We are looking at the unveiling of the Zest (codename Falcon 5) compact sedan, the Bolt hatchback (codename Falcon 4) and the Nexon (earlier rumored as JUMP) compact SUV that we reported about a couple of days back. Tata Motors Zest / Bolt / Nexon should help tata Motors expand its product portfolio in the mainstream segment, which, of late has started looking stagnant. As always, we at Motoroids are covering the event live, and will update with information about the new products with relevant images and tech specs as soon as the event goes underway at 11:30 AM
