Tata Kite5 compact sedan unveiled

Tata Motors unveiled the Kite5 compact sedan at the Auto Expo 2016. The new compact sedan will replace the Indigo eCS and will be priced lower than the Tata Zest which already exists in the sub 4-meter range.

Compared to Zica hatchback,  the Kite5 features subtle styling changes like a tweaked grille up front. Interiors and other features too are very similar to those found in Zica.
