Tata Zest vs Honda Amaze Comparison

Verdict: Amaze technically superior as well as better value-for-money than Zest

Reliability & After Sales Service: Over the last 15 years Honda has undoubtedly proven that it makes extremely reliable & dependable cars, while Tata has proven to be the exact opposite. So over the next 5-7 years if you chose the Amaze, then you are statistically likely to get a far better, hassle free ownership experience as well as better resale price when you eventually decide to upgrade. Roughly you can expect a difference of 75,000 Rs. in depreciation after a period of 5 to 7 years between these two cars.

Fuel Efficiency: Amongst the diesel powered cars, the Amaze has an ARAI certified mileage of 25.8 kmpl compared to Zest's 23 kmpl. In our back-to-back fuel efficiency runs, the Amaze was consistently 1 kmpl more efficient than the Zest. In petrols, Amaze has an ARAI certified mileage of 18 kmpl, compared to the Zest's 17.6, but the actual difference in our fuel efficiency tests was much higher at close to 2 kmpl.

Price Difference: Amaze is roughly 40,000 Rs. more expensive to buy than the Zest. But thanks to lower fuel cost and higher resale value, it will actually end up being 40-60k less expensive than the Zest over an ownership period of 5 to 7 years.

Drivability & Performance: Honda's 250cc bigger engine makes it far more easier than the Zest to drive in city traffic, thanks to the absence of any turbo-lag whatsoever. It also gives the Amaze a stronger mid-range punch than the Zest, making it far easier to overtake at highway speeds as well as it's 100 bhp output gives it better outright acceleration than the as well.

Ergonomics: Amaze's low-set dashboard and supportive seats cause much less fatigue, be it on long journeys or lengthy commutes. Zest's high set dash with a steering which is still a bit too high, even in its lowermost position coupled to overly soft seat foam make you feel tiresome after long duration in the saddle.
