Inkling on the drive ~ The 'Tata Zest' Experience..

Well, then...the 'D day' has arrived. I would rather call it a lyrical ride, primarily because it did unravel new directions and 'new dimensions' in terms of the receptivity...the thrill that you experience while holding the steering-wheel. You know that the wide open boulevard is calling you with extended arms and there you go, creaming through the Goan 'zigzag's' in search of a new horizon. Yes, ladies and gentlemen...Tata Zest has it all. The performance that's of the highest order, the SQ (Satisfaction Quotient) that has almost set world-class standards with it's inception and the essence of 'vogue' attached to both the interiors and the exteriors- you do set an 'advanced proficiency' level. Glad that we got a chance to get a 'hands-on feeler' of the beauty!

The Tata Zest Experience: Here's one of the 'speedy specimens' on offer, dazzling blue....
The Zesty Drive: The moment we caught the sight of our brand new engineering marvels, to taken on a test drive, one thing was for sure..this promised to be the experience of life-time. Those happy miles 'on the go' would script a glorious tale, the tale of automobile enthusiasts to be etched on the highway. We were earlier told that the all new Tata Zest thrives on a multi-mode drive, the primary one being the Eco-mode with the treasured 'endowment', it's an effortless cruise on the highway that comes in with a souvenir fuel efficiency, followed by the city & sport modes that caters to the 'driving trajectory'..the ideal combination of power and mileage to add "zest" to your drive. The initial nerves were conquered soon enough & the rest is pretty much 'history'.

The Tata Zest Experience: The breather in the midst of a legendary 'royal ramble'.....
The route that we had to follow was pretty much a combination of the city stretch and the highway- the possibility of switching modes was pretty much there. And we complied, we subtly shuffled our positions, altered the driving modes and completed the entire 'radius' with beaming confidence. And it goes without saying that the intrinsic 'ease of the drive' impressed us the most. The 'creamy stretch' of around 40 kilometers through the picturesque Goan roads would remain as silky, tranquil & of course 'zesty experience'. The last stretch of the drive was 'accomplished' in the Sport mode with the inbred 'nitro booster' . Explore ;)

The Tata Zest Experience: Trying something new, the rear-view mirror selfie or the 'reafie' ...
The 3 Pillars of Tata Zest: The 'characteristic idiosyncrasy' that's prompted through the envisaged three-tier architecture viz. DesignNext, DriveNext and ConnectNext, does complete the circle...Tata Zest is certainly a LEVEL-Up, an engineering brilliance that perhaps sets a benchmark of it's own. As a person, who's extremely inclined towards 'analyzing' the impact of the contemporary 'automobile interventions' , I would rather take this opportunity and script it down as a best practice study- The reason why I say study? Well, that's of course, the first experience with the automated manual transmission is always the chapter one of the learning curve. This was my first experience with controlling a 'mean machine' that has 'auto-receptors' in true sense of the term- well, the fact that it cater's to the driver's furtherance is quite an innovation itself. The "driver focused interior layered" arrangement is just another 'gift' from Tata who invests in user-satisfaction and a soothing-driving-experience. The 'upscale' voice command driven operating infotainment system is a quite a value-addition I'd say...

The Tata Zest Experience: The stylish accessories that form an intrinsic aspect of the Zest..
The Humanitarian Bend: Ah, to highlight the 'crux' of the experience, I bet that the car, that is manufactured with a 'humanitarian bent' offers a joy-ride. The surprise factor is indeed the "SMS notification and read-out" functionality that effectively recognizes the major Indian dialects, oh my...that speaks a lot regarding the rich 'charm of technology' encapsulated in the metal-castings. Perhaps there's "life" nested in the quiescent piece of genius that almost molds as if in sync with the driver's thought-process. I got to say that the Tata Motors team working with a group of 250 Engineers have done a fabulous job in creating such a humane-machine, we could feel the pulse, right from the moment we stepped into the 'luxurious creation'. Ahoy.

The Tata Zest Experience: The interiors are absolutely beautiful...the sheeny splendor....
The Tata Zest Experience: The swanky controls resulting in a superior driving experience....
The car looks compact from the outer half and it's extremely spacious from inside, that is the perfect example of a 'zesty creation'- it's like a technological-prophecy...a unveiling to be honest, the confident dynamism is indeed a proclamation. Not going deep into the technicalities, one of the primary things that I always check before the reviewing a car, is the efficiency of the braking system- Voila! The Tata Zest, has put forward all the user-feedback into practice, the manifestation being a Generation 9 ABS with EBD and corner stability control- truly a masterclass. The glowing divulgement is the ePAS that incorporates the most advanced steering in this segment, uses brush-less D.C. motors and 'facilitates' in a noiseless drive . I'd rate the Petrol manual variant slightly higher than the Diesel automatic, mostly because I can rather be 'at home' with the former, it's like a familiar territory for me. Of course, the automatic mode is neoteric and worth exploring. All in all, a splendid experience indeed. 
This goes to the Tata Motors and the Blogadda team: Just to share a small feedback, dad, an automobile engineer seemed to be really fascinated after browsing through the pics & analyzing the inventive features of the all new Zest. Cheers!

The Tata Zest Experience: Trying my hand with the legendary Tata Zest, the creamy ride....
Ahan..sounds like a dreamy possession isn't it?
Well, I'd concur...the experience that unfurls with every mile, is like a regal epiphany. Are you feeling 'the Zest' already?
