Finally I was able to find time to go and visit Tata Bolt arena. Year 2015 started with extra wheels on my legs, travelling stars are exalted in my horoscope I guess. I seriously had my doubts about visiting Tata Bolt arena with my busy travelling schedule but once again its proved that-‘where there is a will, there is always a way”.

Finally on 27th of January, I went to Embassy tech village, Bangalore to check out the new Tata Bolt.

Here is my unbiased review about this car. It’s a car designed keeping the middle class families and their budget. It’s a premium segment, hatch  back car loaded with many luxury features. I got to check out red colour variant car and I must say it looked very sporty and stylish. 
Tata Bolt is like a brother from another mother of Tats Zest. Bolt has many of Tata zest’s feature but still it stands out like a totally different breed. Its projector headlight gives very sporty look to the car and it has all the specs to break a mind-set of stereotype women who thinks- Girls don’t look stylish behind Tata wheels. (I have seen women giving me this look for years now).

I happen to meet many people who were there in Tata Bolt Arena to check out this new boy on the block, many had an impression that, this is another Tata Indica ( Jai Ho Indica, you have served well for all those driver’s families who are solely dependent on you for living). People, this is not another Indica, Yes it’s a hatch back just like Indica but it’s not Indica. Bolt is completely different design, its revamped bumper, projector headlights in the front and new tail lights, high and low stop lamps in the rear stands out very differently from Indica.

CONNECTNEXT TOUCHSCREEN INFOTAINMENT BY HARMAN is one of the best interior features and I fell in love with it.Tata bolt is collaborated with MapMyIndia to give a better GPS navigation. 
User can sync his/her mobile phone to the head unit and enjoy the drive like a royal. Head unit also offers USB and card reader port, which would help to watch videos and pictures. It also has Voice command recognition feature, which makes a driver’s life easier. Just command and make calls or answer calls or receive SMS (Also can command to read out SMS loudly, But make sure your wife/girlfriend not around) even change song tracks or temperature inside the car. Isn’t it a luxury you always thrived for? Now get this luxury under your budget with Tata Bolt.

I happen to check out petrol version of Tata Bolt.  For an ace driver like me, engine performance matters a lot. Tata Bolt’s engine capacity looks promising.

I got a chance to drive this boy and he seems to be a sensible boy with all right features. Tata Bolt has 1.2 litre turbocharged MPFi petrol engine, produces 90bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. My driving experience was actually good and its performance was quite satisfying my driving thirst. What I liked the most was its multi drive feature- sports, echo and city modes and also available in 5 colour variants.

What’s my rating?
My honest rating is it’s a value for money car and you can expect many luxury features in a budget segment. I didn’t like the plastic interiors and also boot space could have been improved. (Yeah I know, it’s too much to expect all these under value for money car, but still I can always hope for the best). Soul of the car is engine and believe me, he is a performer. Exterior is very stylish, and interior is filled with all the best features which are designed keeping the needs of the tech savvy world. It is also priced keeping the middle class segment and interiors are designed accordingly too. It has petrol and diesel variants with 5 speed manual gear box, also Tata says automatic version will be in market soon.
Watch my video review below.

According to me Tata Bolt gives a very tough competition for Maruti Swift, Hyundai i10 , Grand i10, Nissan Micra and many other mid-range segments cars.

If you are looking out to buy a new car, you should check out new Tata Bolt and I don’t need to say more because Tata Bolt speaks rest….Get, Set, Bolt…
