Amaze, Bolt, Dzire, i20, Polo, Punto, Swift, Xcent & Zest Comparison

By Dhruv Behl | on May 11, 2015

Assembled here are nine of your favourite everyday machines. These are the chariots of choice for your commute – the fuel efficiency kings! And while we care about miles per gallon just as much as you do, we care far more about smiles per gallon. And so these 4 compact sedans and 5 hatchbacks, all diesel powered, are being put to the test on the track to see which one has the potential to plaster the biggest smile during a spirited Sunday drive.

Fiat Punto
FIAT PUNTO

LAP TIME: 2:58:5
TOP SPEED(KM/H): 146
COMMENTS: The Punto Evo now looks the part once again. And drives quite well too. But there’s a much hotter version around the corner – and we’d like to wait for that thank you very much…

Tata Zest
TATA ZEST

LAP TIME: 3:01.87
TOP SPEED(KM/H): 145
COMMENTS: A great effort from Tata Motors to get back in the game – it’s a definite step in the right direction, and one that heralds a new dawn for the company. But it still needs that little bit more to compete on the world stage…
 

Tata Bolt
TATA BOLT

LAP TIME: 3:04.7
TOP SPEED(KM/H): 135
COMMENTS: This is a great looking hatch that drives quite well on the road. Push it to the limit on the track, however, and things start to unravel a little bit – the steering most of all!
