Traveling is a \u00a0passion of everyone on this planet and if it comes towards choosing car, then it's become rocket science :)\u00a0Automobile technology changing so fast to deliver\u00a0BEST in market. Tata motors is great example of same which continuously focusing on emerging technologies to attract consumers in global\u00a0market. Last time we covered small wonder TATA NANO GEnX's\u00a0on field\u00a0chemistry,\u00a0this time we\u00a0got an\u00a0opportunity to explore\u00a0their\u00a0new born hatchback "Tata ZICA" on crazy roads of GOA :) . It was a\u00a0part of #MadeOfGreat\u00a0Indiblogger\u00a0campaign, where 60 bloggers were invited to touch & explore this new beauty. Meaning of ZICA itself hidden inside\u00a0ZIppy CAr which standing out for its numerously value added specifications, which we are going to cover soon. ZICA\u00a0sits\u00a0pleasantly between the less expensive Nano and greater Bolt by TataMotors, which is promising for people who are looking for budget hatchback for intracity drive. KickOff of MadeOfGreat : All bloggers got grand welcome by Tata & Indiblogger team at GOA airport to GearUpForGreat, all of us were excited to see ZICA in person. After gathering at airport we headed towards "AlilaDiwa resort" where we stayed 2 days & explored on road performance of ZICA. I was pretty excited to see connection of\u00a0Lionel Messi with Tata Motors as a brand ambassador. I believe\u00a0they are targeting ZICA not only in Indian market but also in European market,which is bold move by TataMotors\u00a0this time. TataMotors arranged few fun activities for us to get relaxed on Goa beach before we headed towards presentation ceremony of ZICA. Presentation ceremony was full of information\u00a0which was amazingly handled by anchor Cyrus Sahukar, talented Tata Motors lady\u00a0Delna Avari (Head marketing & communication), Anand Kulkarni\u00a0(General\u00a0Manager vehicle Integration) & Pratap Bose who lead the design team. All bloggers were surprised with locker room with bleachers and lockers for everyone\u00a0with their name on it. Seriously\u00a0fantastic kick-off for presentation ceremony which no one expected earlier.\u00a0That was the #MadeOfGreat movement for all of us :) After loading with all wikipedia of ZICA we ran towards brand new SunBurst Orange beauty\u00a0where we started exploring this fantastico. I really liked the way Tata team explained each functionality to us in\u00a0person, especially Mr. Anand told more about its engine, fuel\u00a0efficiency & performance factors which is indeed for tech blogger like me.

Dashboard of ZICA is attractive and informative where you can see many insights related to engine and car. Dual toned color scheme of ZICA attract many fashionholic buyers. Milage & gear shift indicators are\u00a0another good add-on in dashboard of ZICA. Both petrol\/diesel variants of ZICA come with 2 mode's \u00a0CITY mode and ECO mode. CITY mode is default mode. Where as to enable ECO mode you have to trigger dedicated button of car, ECO mode is especially develop to give better fuel efficiency on normal roads but during hillside drive you should shift to CITY mode to maintain engine efficiency. ZICA have off-centre parking break along with various space in console & dashboard which help you to put your \u00a0iPad\/Tablet safely.Cup holders & mobile charging point keep your smartphones battery alive.
