The Tata Nexon will get a new 1.5L diesel engine with 6MT.

Although its heavily camouflaged, Tata has already revealed the production-spec design at the Auto Expo 2016, which looks virtually similar to the Nexon concept unveiled two years ago, save for typical production-spec elements. It will be available with a suite of customization options from Tata’s Personalization Studio, when launched

The Nexon is expected to measure 3,995 mm long, ride on 16-inch alloy wheels and sports a ground clearance of 200 mm. It gets projector headlights, a ceramic side finisher, contrast roof, LED taillights and LED daytime running lights in addition to a piano-black grille element.

A new 6-speed manual gearbox will drive the front wheels of the Nexon and three driving modes will be available on the compact SUV.
