The Nexon was revealed in production guise at the Auto Expo 2016. Tata Motors confirmed that the compact SUV will be powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and 1.5-liter diesel engine, the latter based on the all-new Revotorq family. The diesel engine was announced to deliver 110 PS and 260 Nm of torque, and get a 6-speed manual transmission. AMT-variants of the Nexon have also been spied on test though.
The Tata Nexon will also sport a dual-path suspension and offer ground clearance of 200 mm with 16-inch alloy wheels. Tata will offer a wide array of customizations on the Nexon including bits like colored belt-line and upper grille.

Other features will include projector headlights, LED taillights, keyless entry with push button start and electrically-adjustable wing mirrors.
