The world is changing. And so is the way of promotion. Apart from hoardings, advertisements , newspapers speaking of the new products, now bloggers are chosen by the companies to review their products first before launcing. Tata Motors’ newest offering, the Bolt is on display all over the country. The sporty design and aggressive styling of the Bolt has already won many hearts. Blogadda launched this activity to allow us to Get Set BOLT!!!

The blazing BOLT has set fire with its amazing features. The Bolt is a part of Tata's HorizonNext strategy, with three aspects of DriveNext, DesignNext and ConnectNext, where each aspect stands for excitement, looks and connect respectively. BOLT is called as the new DNA of passenger vehicles business. As an icing on the cake, Tata Motors has also announced the launch of a new service programme for the car offering warranty of 3 years or 1 lakh km, as well as free 24x7 Roadside Assistance service for 3 years.

Catchy Exterior

The Bolt's new design language and stylish features are bound to attract the youth in India. The fascia sports a new grille, revised headlamps with projectors, fog lamps and a revamped bumper. The new tail lights, high and low mount stop lamps, and a chrome grille are some of the features seen at the back of the vehicle. It has a glowing and well etched front face. The slight power bulge on the hood and the bumper with the inverted smile gives it some serious aggression. 

Multi - Drive

Bolt is the first hatchback to offer the multi-drive functions of `Eco’, `City’, and `Sport’ . Now you can ride in three different modes in the same car. The ECU (Engine Control Unit) adjusts the engine performance as per the chosen mode. Sports mode  will allow you to race on expressways giving power boost to Bolt. Eco (Economy) mode  sets you on a smooth accelerated ride providing excellent fuel efficiency. City (Normal) mode is the default mode to drive safe on the busy streets.  


The petrol variant of the Bolt is powered by the country’s first 1.2L turbocharged Multi-point fuel injection (MPFi) petrol engine, Revotron 1.2T. The diesel variant has a Quadrajet 1.3L engine. The petrol variant delivers fuel efficiency of 17.57 km per litre while the diesel variant delivers 22.95 km per litre.

The Bolt has been launched at a starting price of Rs 4.65 lakh for the Revotron (petrol) and starts at Rs 5.75 lakh for the diesel variant. It is offered in 4 trims of XE, XM, XMS and XT with the high-end petrol variant priced at Rs 6.34 lakh and the Diesel top-end at Rs 7.33 lakh.
XE - Rs 5.49 lakh
XM - Rs 6.11 lakh
XMS - Rs 6.34 lakh

Superior Interior

The interiors are spacious because of hatchback profile. The comfortable rugby shoulder seats allows you to sink in for a long drive. 

The seats are a bit upright but offer decent support especially in the under thigh area beneficial on long drives. Ingress and egress are also comfortable and even if your knees aren’t as young as your heart is, getting into and out of the Bolt is no issue. The GPS navigation technology allows the user’s smart phone to sync with the Bolt's head unit. 


The Tata Bolt is available in both petrol and diesel engine options.
