Tata Motors is readying an updated Nexon with a fresh steering wheel and cruise control button. The new model was recently spied in a parking lot in XZ+ and XZA+ trim levels, courtesy Facebook user Siddharth Patil.
The test mules seen here could be of the BS-VI Tata Nexon. Apparently, the more eco-friendly Tata Nexon will come with some interior revisions. Firstly, there will be a new steering wheel, the same unit from the upcoming Altroz. In addition, cruise control will make it to the sub-compact SUV, a feature already available in the rivals Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Hyundai Venue.
Tata Motors will upgrade both the engines of the Nexon to BS-VI, the 1.2L Revotron petrol unit and the 1.5L Revotorq unit. The BS-IV 1.2L Revotron turbocharged petrol engine produces 110 PS and 170 Nm of torque. The BS-IV 1.5L Revotorq turbocharged diesel engine develops 110 PS and 260 Nm of torque. Both the engines are available with a standard 6-speed manual transmission and an optional 6-speed automated manual transmission.
The Nexon has been quite a successful product for Tata Motors. Recently, the company rolled out the 1,00,000th Nexon from its plant in Ranjangaon. This feat was achieved in less than 22 months after the first unit was sold in September 2017. The Tata Nexon currently retails at INR 6.58-11.00 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The BS-VI Nexon will be costlier.
In other updates, Tata Motors has disclosed that it is working on a Nexon EV and that it will launch this model in the next 18 months.
