Tata Nexon to launch in India in October 2017 – Report


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

To arrive in showrooms before this Diwali.

In an interview with MoneyControl, Tata Motors Managing Director Guenter Butscheck has divulged that the Tata Nexon SUV will launch in India before this Diwali in October 2017.

The Nexon is Tata’s most important product since the Tiago.

This is not a surprising move, given the usual surge of car sales during the festive period. The Nexon is one of Tata’s most important products which, along with Tigor and Tiago, could significantly help increase their market share. It enters the sub-4m SUV segment that has proven to be highly lucrative lately, so with a launch set for the festive, Tata would be expecting to push good volumes of the Nexon right from launch.

The Nexon was showcased in its production guise at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show earlier this week. It measures 3,995 mm long, 1,811 mm wide, 1,607 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,498 mm. The range-topping variant will feature projector headlights, a ceramic side finisher, contrast roof, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, foglamps, gloss black finish for the wide grille, and LED powered taillamps.

Tata has so far confirmed the specs of the diesel variant, which packs an all new 1.5L 4-cyl turbodiesel engine paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. A petrol variant is not yet confirmed, but should it come to fruition, the Nexon petrol could be powered a turbocharged 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine. Tata has also packed a Terrain Management dial into the display models hinting at a four-wheel drive system on the top-end variant.
