Tata Motors is seeking an image makeover with the curvaceous hatchback, which is being endorsed by world soccer player of the year Lionel Messi.

The hatchback will compete with vehicles in a similar class from Maruti Suzuki India Ltd and Hyundai Motor Co, where prices start at 400,000 rupees ($5,830).
