Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Within the next 24 months, Tata Motors will launch its first ever compact crossover SUV in India by way of the Nexon. Shown as a concept at the Delhi Motor Show earlier this year, the Nexon previews a Ford EcoSport rival from the Indian car maker which was once known for its stronghold of the UV segment.

The production Nexon will preserve a majority of the concept’s design.

The rendering you see here, made by our artist Shoeb, shows what the production Nexon could look like. Tata’s design head, Mr. Pratap Bose, told Indian Autos Blog earlier this year that the design of the concept would be preserved to the maximum extent when the vehicle meets production lines. It is with this aspect that our artist has given this rendering Tata’s much talked about design traits: The Humanity Line, Diamond DLO and the Slingshot Line.

If you’re thinking the Nexon looks non-aggressive for its segment, you’re not mistaken for Tata say they don’t want the car to have aggressive looks. Instead a stand-out design is favored. Naturally, it’s unlikely for the production Nexon to get those coach doors that were seen on the concept.

Other details we know about the Nexon are that it will likely come powered by a new three-cylinder 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine with up to 110 PS (108.45 bhp) and 170 Nm of torque, and a 4WD system could be offered on the top-end variants.

Competitors: Ford EcoSport, VW Taigun, Mahindra S101

Expected Price: INR 5 – 7 lakhs, ex-Showroom
