Indian giant Tata has revealed a pair of new combatants on its home turf this week, ahead of a launch in the hotly contested light-car market.

The new twins, named Zest (sedan) and Bolt (hatch) arrive some six years after Tata’s tiny Nano made headlines by becoming the world’s cheapest car.

But while the Nano has largely stuck to the Indian market, Tata says the Zest and Bolt have been developed to a global philosophy - although emerging markets will likely remain the focus.

In those regions, the new Tata cars will take on the likes of Nissan’s Datsun range, the Maruti Suzuki line-up and Ford’s new Figo sedan and Ka hatch.

To compete, the Zest and Bolt are built on Tata’s more versatile X1 platform, with both utilising higher-grade materials and technologies than the Nano.

Tata says it worked with studios and development houses in India, the UK, Italy and Korea to craft the Zest and Bolt twins.

Features in both include a five-inch touchscreen display, smartphone connectivity, satellite navigation and speed-sensitive power steering.

Both models will be offered with with a turbocharged 63kW 1.2 litre petrol engine, and the Zest will also be available with a Fiat-sourced 1.3 litre Multijet diesel.

A manual transmission is standard, while an automated manual will also be made available for the diesel model (likely again sourced from Fiat).
