Motor Octane has spyshots of the upcoming Tata Nexon, one of which reveals an AMT shifter, thus confirming that an AMT option is in the works for the sub-4m SUV.
The Nexon's engine lineup will include two engines – a 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron petrol engine and an all-new 1.5-litre diesel engine. The latter is capable of producing 110 PS and 260 Nm, and is paired to a new six-speed manual transmission as standard. Details of the AMT option are scarce at the moment.
The production-Nexon retains most of the design cues from the Tata Nexon Concept that was unveiled at the 2014 Auto Expo. The exterior of the Nexon is characterized by a high stance, projector headlamps, LED DRLs, ceramic side appliqué, LED taillamps and contrast roof. It has 200 mm of ground clearance and rides on 16-inch alloy wheels in the top-end grade.
