The upcoming Zica hatchback from Tata Motors has been fully spied in India, ahead of its launch next week. The Tata Zica will hit Indian showrooms in the first half of January, 2016. The name, according to Tata Motors, is derived from ‘Zippy Car’. The car seen in these images looks like the top-spec model. tatazicaspied1The Tata Zica hatchback is built on a thoroughly modified Indica’s XO platform and is the third product under the company’s HORIZONEXT umbrella. This new design initiative involves inputs from the company’s design centres in Coventry, Turin and Pune. The front-end will feature Tata’s new signature honeycomb-grille with a chrome ‘Humanity Line’ that runs into the car’s smoked head-lamps. tatazicaspied4Underpinning the Zica’s chassis will be an all-new suspension system. The Tata Zica will also feature a newly designed tail-lamp cluster. The wraparound, petal-shaped tail-lamps look completely different from any other Tata cars on sale today. tatazicaspied2Tata Motors will load the Zica with a plethora of features like 2-DIN audio system, steering mounted audio and call controls, electronic power steering, height-adjustable driver seat, dual front airbags and ABS with EBD, electrically adjustable ORVMs and rear defogger, among many others. tatazicaspied3According to various media reports, the Tata Zica will be offered with two engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.05-litre, 3-cylinder diesel. While the 1.2-litre petrol unit is the same that powers the Bolt and the Zest, the 1.05-litre diesel is an all-new engine that will produce 64bhp and 140Nm.

Once launched, this zippy hatchback will rival the likes of Suzuki Celerio, Hyundai i10, Suzuki Alto and Renault Kwid. While the Zica is a hatchback, there is also going to be a compact sedan which will be launched later.
