Following a slew of IPL themed examples of the Tata Nexon that surfaced online in April, the compact SUV has now been given a FIFA World Cup 2018 treatment. The Tata Nexon FIFA World Cup-themed models have been created by a Kerala based dealership.

It is unclear whether the Football-World-Cup-themed Tata Nexon are customer units or created by the dealership purely for promotional purposes.

The images shared by Rushlane show three World-Cup-themed Tata Nexons. The one on yellow with blue and green bits is inspired by the Brazilian national team's kit. The front doors and bonnet feature an image of Neymar Jr. A similar treatment is given to the other two in the colours of Argentina (blue) and England (red). They feature an image of Lionel Messi and Harry Kane respectively.

The one-off creations by Malayalam Motors from Kerala are based on the XZ+ grade. The info shared by Rushlane does not mention anything about the cost or commercial availability of these custom Tata Nexon FIFA World Cup edition models.

Tata launched the diesel and petrol manual variants of the Nexon last year in September. AMT variants were added last month. The petrol engine is a 1.2 L turbocharged unit producing 110 PS and 170 Nm while the turbocharged 1.5 L diesel makes 110 PS and 260 Nm. Both are available with 6-speed manual and 6-speed AMT gearbox options.

Key features of the Tata Nexon include projector headlamps, LED DRLs, LED tail lamp signature, dual tone paint schemes, 16-inch alloy wheels, floating touchscreen display for the infotainment suite, drive modes, and more.

The Tata Nexon has consistently managed to sell more than 4,000 units a month. It helped the company post a staggering 463% growth in the UV segment last month. In May 2018, the compact SUV registered sales of 4,308 units.
