Tata Zica-based compact sedan spied testing on Mumbai-Pune Expressway

Tata Zica-based compact sedan spied testing on Mumbai-Pune Expressway

Tata Motors will soon launch the Zica hatchback for the Indian market. A sedan based on this hatchback was recently spotted taking rounds of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.

The Zica-based sedan will get the same underpinnings as the hatchback and the styling elements and features will be carried over from it. The Zica sedan's length will be under four metres to avail the benefits of saving the excise duty. The rear section with an extended boot might be the only differentiating factor between the sedan and the hatchback.

The compact sedan boasts of a sloping rear windshield like a notchback and an integrated spoiler. The front fascia of this test vehicle looks exactly similar to the Zica and will get the new Tata signature grille designed to extend well into the new headlights. The interior is expected to be similar to the Zica with the white-backlit instrument cluster alongside a multi-information display and rectangular air vents in the new dashboard.

The engine options from the Zica will be carried over to the compact sedan and it will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol mill will be the 1.2-litre three-cylinder DOHC aluminum powerplant and the oil-burner will get the 1.0-litre three-cylinder diesel engine. While the petrol unit is tuned to produce 83.8bhp of power and 114Nm of torque, the diesel motor will churn out 69bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. Both the variants will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

Tata Motors will slot the Zica-based compact sedan below the Zest, while the Zica hatchback below the Bolt. With both the cars entering production, they will take up nearly all of the installed capacity of 2,50,000 units at Tata's manufacturing facility in Sanand, Gujarat. The Zica will be launched on January 20, while the sedan might make it to the dealerships by the end of this year.
