    Had TATAs launchednexon, bolt and zest by now in India, their image would have been changed tremendously and it would have helped Nano / Storme / Movus. Nexon would have had waiting periods and put Ecosport to shame.

    Nano badly needs a openable boot, more powerful engine and the new auto expo looks.

    TATA you still are wasting time. Get into action before we say TATA….

    If they knew the name Nexon was synonymous with bugs, glitches and horrible service, I’m sure they would change it.

    Well written! The emphasis on the design parameters is appreciable. This Mini-SUV received overwhelming response and admiration at the 2014 Delhi Auto-Expo for it’s design and state-of-the-art technology.

    It’s our nation’s pride to see these next-gen cars representing India at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show and keep the Indian flag flying high.

      Good to see patriotic talk on this blog. It is time to take the gloves of and confront the foreign auto companies who sell substandard products in India. Classic example is the new Ford Ecosport with the turbocharged engine that they make in India (not the modern Ecosport engine which is imported and not produced locally). Ask tough questions to these auto companies, why are you producing the substandard engines locally and import modern engines from other third world countries?
