The Tata Nexon will be the third vehicle (after the Tata Tiago and the Tata Hexa) to feature the 'IMPACT' design language, with projector headlamp, LED taillamp and the signature chrome 'Humanity Line' on the grille. The 3,995 mm crossover would also come with the switchable driving modes, Harman infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and 8 speakers, and an electric power steering.
The Tata Nexon has a 200 mm ground clearance, dual path suspension, optional 16-inch alloy wheels, and will be available with 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine choices. A new 6-speed manual transmission will be offered probably alongside a standard 5-speed manual transmission and an automatic transmission.
Detailed specifications will be available only closer to launch, which will happen in the second half of the year. The Tata Nexon is also being considered for South Africa.
