Tata Motors dealerships have started receiving the Tata Nexon, the company’s first small SUV. In the latest, Team-BHP forum member RavenAvi has spotted the Nexon in its mid-level XM grade at a Noida dealership.
The Tata Nexon XM appears to have wheel caps designed to look like alloy wheels. Like the base Nexon XE, it does not get body coloured ORVMs and body coloured door handles. On the inside, the XM grade has gloss black inserts, an MID in the instrument panel and a small display with the readings of the ConnectNEXT multimedia system. There’s no engine start-stop button, and the space for it looks left out empty. The XM grade is also devoid of an automatic climate control system.
Higher-end grades will get projector headlights, LED DRLs, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lamps, engine start-stop button, automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, front & rear central armrest and parking sensors and camera.
The Tata Nexon is 3,995 mm long, 1,811 mm wide and 1,607 mm tall, and has a 2,498 mm-long wheelbase. It has two engine options: 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel. The turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine produces 110 PS and 170 Nm of torque. The turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine develops 110 PS and 260 Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission sends power to the front wheels. An AMT option is in the works, and it will follow by early 2018.
Tata Motors has confirmed that the Tata Nexon will go on sale in India this month. Latest reports say that 21 September is the date for the launch.
