Tata Motors’s B-SUV will head into the market during Diwali.
Tata Motors’s testers have taken Tata Nexon engineering mules up north to Himachal Pradesh for high-altitude runs. Team-BHP forum member RavenAvi has published a spy shot of the car parked.
The Tata Nexon (codename: Tata X104) is Tata Motors’s entry into the sub-compact SUV segment in India. Benefitting from the lower excise duty for sub-4 metre passenger vehicles, the Tata Nexon will compete essentially with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra TUV300.
The Tata Nexon measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,811 mm in width and 1,607 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,498 mm and a ground clearance of 200 mm. Its engine options will include an all-new 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine paired to a 6-speed manual transmission and a 1.2-litre Revotron turbocharged petrol engine. An AMT option is a given, although it’s not clear if it is part of the configuration at the launch.
Noteworthy features of the Tata Nexon include projector headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, clear lens tail lamps, integrated roof rails, drive mode selector, automatic climate control and touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. The Tata Nexon will have its commercial launch in India
The Tata Nexon will have its commercial launch in India in October 2017. Expect prices to start around from INR 6.5-7 lakh (ex-showroom).
