Around 50 bloggers from all over the country were invited to this exciting launch party of this car, which spread across a beautiful beach, an exotic resort and 3 wonderful hours of knowing the know-hows of this car and of course, networking.
These people definitely know how to always keep the element of surprise alive. Narain Karthikeyan suddenly turns up for the launch. And now, I had two reasons to look forward to the zestful driving experience lined up for the next day-
1. Its TATA Motors. Need I say more?
2. The man who defines speed comes up to tell you why this car is special.

When I signed up for this event, I was asked if I know driving. The only thing I could anticipate was a li’l drive around the rosy roads would sum it up. But I have never been more wrong. They have planned a well-managed drive of 24kms around the scenic beauty of this lovely place. That gave me the adrenaline rush.

I got to know that one car is shared by 3 people, so that gives each person an 8 km drive. I, of course, wanted more. And I had two non-drivers with me. I couldn’t have asked for more.
They had two variants of the car up for the drive. One was a manual petrol engine car. And the other was the Automated Manual Transmission. So that made my drive a good 48Kms. I can be a bit mean, right?
I am going to give a review of both the cars, from a Delhi-driver’s point of view. Don’t expect me to be way too technical. But let me first give me a li’l description of the claims made my Zest.

All set then, I first took the petrol engine car. I had two fellow bloggers as my mates to zoom around South Goa.

So, whatever they claimed, they fulfilled it. It has given the drive-next experience. It also gave the design-next experience. Pretty lovely design. That is all I can say about it. The fluidity of the design makes it really elegant in looks. Connect-next experience is something that is unbeatable when it comes to this segment. Although in a car, this particular feature doesn’t mean much to me, but yes, for people who want the best out of their interiors and the electronic system of the car, it this is pretty awesome.
Thank you, Tata!
