The Unpretentious Bolt review.

The Legacy That Is Tata,
A company that paved the path of industrialization in India. It attained superlative success in sectors such as steel, energy, automobiles, textiles and hospitality. Tata for me symbolizes, TRUST. After all they’ve been in the business for a close to 150years. In spite of being around for so long, it has never stopped reinventing itself. Under the new found leadership of Mr. Cyrus Pallonji Mistry, the company is rejuvenating existing businesses, entering new ones, attaining manufacturing breakthrough and expanding into foreign markets with vigor.

Keeping up with the companies momentum, Tata has reclaimed the automobile market with poise. With the new #HorizonNext philosophy, Tata Zest marked the beginning of a new chapter in the small car segment. The next debutant in this line up is the Tata Bolt. The Tata Zest had all the critiques stand up and take notice and the Bolt surely takes this one step ahead. I was fortunate enough to be part of an entourage of bloggers who got to experience the Zest first hand at its Goa launch. With the new Tata Bolt I decided to continue this affair.

I prefer driving, rather than being driven. It’s my high in life. But I have a little confession, as much as I love cars, I have zero technical knowledge about its mechanics. All that car jargon is just gibberish to me. Every time I  sit down to watch an Auto Show and when words like engine suspension , BHP, torque, etc. surface I can’t help but hear crickets’.

If only they could review cars in generic English. In a language that makes it easy to comprehend for a non engineer or for someone who doesn’t subscribe to Auto car or Top Gear. Am sure my dad is like that, so are my neighbors and so is my very rich but very uneducated maternal uncle. So when I was asked to review the Tata Bolt, I knew it had to keep it simple, so that potential buyers could make sense of the mechanics of the car and can make a informed decision.

Over the weekend I checkout the car in the Bolt Arena at a mall nearby. But since I wanted to give you a 360degree review on the car, I stalked the nearest dealer and test drove it along with my other car geek friends. I might not be able to point out the parts under the hood, but when am on the wheel, I have a great understanding of its pulse. Here is an true account of my drive and what I make of the Bolt:

I have never seen a more informative car review. It’s true that most of them pretend that we are engineers and can comprehend every little thing they say. I loved your approach. Also learnt a lot from the video! Will look out for the Bolt on the road!

At first I thought this is just another car review, but the video really added value. It was nice to know what all that car jargon actually means :)
