Advantages of Baleno over Zest:
1. 6+ kmpl more due to less power/weight.
2. Rear defogger/wiper
3. Auto AC
4. Parking sensors
Advantages of Zest over Baleno:
1. Projector headlamps
2. 15 bhp more power
3. 50 liters of boot space
4. Good music system
5. 40K less than Delta
any expert thoughts between these cars ?
You missed couple of advantages which are mainly the deal breaker for TATA car for many.
- Maruti after sales service and reliability
- Re sale value
Also, Baleno is newer product (compare to Zest).
If you let go above and ready to face "why buying/ bought TATA Car" from friends/ relatives/ colleagues (which I feel is stupid but you cannot avoid) then you can go for Zest.
To me both are competent and good products. And I agree choice would be difficult as its battle of Mind (Baleno) vs Heart (ZEST).
p.s. I was also in the similar boat last month while deciding between Zest vs Aspire. Finally I let go both and selected Baleno
