To give an idea of what a sportier Tata Nexon could look like, Shoeb R Kalania has created a speculative rendering of the Nexon Sport featuring an aggressive body kit that comprises of a sporty front bumper with large air inlets and radiator grille, black mesh grille and headlamp detailing, large 17-inch black alloy wheels and a red embellisher underlining the front bumper and side skirts.

Under the hood, the stock Nexon will pack a 1.2L turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that also is rumoured to power the sportier versions of the Tigor and Tiago. However, the Nexon's unit could be tuned to produce much more than 110 PS. A 6-speed manual transmission could be standard, while a 5-speed AMT with paddle shifters is a possibility.
