Tata Motors unveils photos of new car Zica
Tata Motors' new car Zica is to be launched December 2015

Ahead of its official launch next month, Tata Motors on Monday released pictures of the Zica, a compact hatchback.

Positioned between the aging Indica and the new Bolt, Zica is a ground-up product from India's biggest automobile manufacturer, and is among the two new product launches promised by the company every year.

Expected to be priced around Rs 4 lakh, Zica will compete against Hyundai i10, Maruti Suzuki Wagon-R, Chevrolet Beat and Datsun Go, among others in that category.

The new Tata car will have petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine will be 1.2-litre expected to produce 85 PS of peak power and 110 Nm of peak torque.

The new engine, which is seen on the Bolt and the Zest, is from the in-house developed Revotron family. It is, however, tuned slightly differently for the Zica.

The diesel motor will be a new 1.0-litre mill that will make 70 PS of peak power and 140 Nm of peak torque. Being the smallest diesel engine in the Tata line-up for a passenger car, it is expected to be one of the most fuel efficient, with a mileage of around 25kmpl.
