The upcoming Tata Nexon spotted by IAB reader Akarsh Mathur confirms new features like keyless entry and adjustable front and rear headrests. The presence of these features and alloy wheels indicate this could be the top of the line XZ trim.
This particular example wears camouflage but does little to hide certain features and the overall profile of the car. It is finished in Pearlescent White as evident from the door handles. The alloy wheels seem identical to the display car at the 2016 Auto Expo. In a first for any car in the world, the Nexon will feature ceramic finish around the fog lamps, rear windshield, and the waist trail.
Tata Motors yesterday revealed the specifications of the Nexon. It will be powered by a new 1.2 L three-cylinder Turbocharged Revotron Petrol engine that puts out 110 PS of and 170 Nm of peak torque. The diesel variant of the Nexon will get a new 1.5 L Revotroq engine with 110 PS and 260 Nm. Power is channelled to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. There is no word on the availability of an automatic transmission yet.
Both diesel and petrol variants of the Nexon feature multi drive modes - Eco, City and Sport. The cabin of the upcoming Tata Nexon gets a dash-top touchscreen infotainment system sourced from Harman along with ConnectNext apps.
Tata Motors confirmed the launch of the Nexon during the 2017 festive season. Prices could start at around INR 6.5 lakhs. Some dealerships are accepting bookings for the compact SUV unofficially for a token amount of INR 11,000. The Nexon will become the first sub-4m SUV/crossover from Tata Motors and rivals the Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport.
