Update: So while the specs and details have been provided in the post with the official images below, our man in Goa at the Zica media drive event is sending some live images. Check out this set comprising images and some additional details about the smart looking hatch from Tata. A detailed review is being prepared as we type this.

The steering wheel, and parts of the centre console have been borrowed from the Bolt. Overall fit and finish has been taken a notch above and now feels even better than the Bolt. Great going, Tata.

Tata Zica headlamp

The smartly styled headlamps don’t have a projector setup. We love the chrome detailing inside, including the beautifully done chrome eyelids

Tata Zica grille

The honeycomb mesh grille has been shaped differently for the Zica. In profile, with its straight cut shape, looks quite nice – arguably the most aggressive looking grille on a Tata hatch / sedan.

Tata Zica dashboard

Another view of the dashboard. Check out the newly styled instrument console and new gear knob. Glad to see that crevice below the A/C controls – provides the much needed storage space we missed so badly on the Bolt.

Tata Zica back seat

Back seat space is decent if not class leading.

The Zica doesn’t have boot space as one of its biggest USPs

Another view of the Dashboard – compared with that of the Bolt. Which one do you find smarter?

Tata Zica  door panel

The door panels get bottle holders unlike the Bolt, though even this time they cannot hold a one litre bottle.

Smartly styled 10 spoke alloys. Ground clearance is a resounding 170 mm. The top-end XZ trim rides on 175/65 R14

Minimal, sharp and smart – those tail-lamps look just right!

As mentioned before, the Tata Zica is powered by a choice of two engines – an oddly displaced 1.05-litre, three-cylinder diesel unit, and a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol unit.

The petrol engine, christened the ‘Revotron’ is not to be confused with the similarly named 1.2-lite unit on the Bolt and Zest. Whereas the one on the Zica is a 3-cylinder engine, the Bolt/Zest’s ‘Revotron’ engine has 4. Moreover, the Zica’s petrol engine has an all-aluminum construction, along with variable valve timing technology – the latter being the first in segment. Displacing 1190 cc, the long stroke engine produces 85PS at 6,000rpm and 114Nm of peak torque that’s available from 3,500rpm. It also features the ‘City’ and ‘Eco’ driving modes, unlike the Bolt/Zest, which has an additional ‘Sport’ mode. With this engine, the Zica tips the scales at 1,012 kg.

The diesel variant is powered by a new 1.05-liter three-cylinder common rail diesel engine. This is the first and the smallest diesel engine of the new ‘Revotorq’ family, developed by Tata Motors. This 1047cc mill generates a power of 70 PS at 4,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque between 1,800-3,000 rpm. The kerb weight of the Tata Zica diesel is 1,080 kg; 68 kilos more than the petrol derivative. The fuel efficiency figures of bothy the engine are still unspecified.
