Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Expected to launch this year before the Kite 5.

The Tata Nexon compact SUV has been caught testing on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway courtesy of carandbike. The model was unveiled in its production-ready guise at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida last month.

It is reported to hit the market ahead of the Tata Kite 5 sedan. The production-Nexon retains most of the design cues from the Tata Nexon Concept that was unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

The exterior of the Nexon is characterised by a high stance, projector headlamps, LED DRLs, ceramic side appliqué, LED taillamps and contrast roof. The compact crossover is expected to measure 3,995 mm in length, but announced with 200 mm of ground clearance and rides on 16-inch alloy wheels.
