According to Car and Bike, the Tata Nexon will launch in the Indian market during the end of 2016. It could be unveiled to the public at the Auto Expo 2016, way ahead of its reported launch.
Codenamed Tata X104, the exterior design was previewed by the Tata Nexon Concept at the 2014 Auto Expo. Reports suggest that Tata will offer a range of customizable options such as contrasting colour combinations for roof and body along with body kits for better personalization.
It is, reportedly, based on a slightly revised version of the Tata Bolt/Zest X1 platform. Engine options are likely to include a 1.2-litre petrol turbocharged Revotron engine and a 1.3-litre Multijet engine from Fiat. Along with a 5-speed manual, the latter could also be offered with an F-Tronic AMT gearbox similar to the unit featured in the Tata Zest.
The Tata Nexon SUV is expected to be manufactured at the company’s plant in Sanand, Gujarat, and will enter a highly competitive segment that includes the Ford EcoSport and Mahindra TUV300, as well as future arrivals like the Maruti YBA.
