Tata Motors will shortly launch the new Nexon compact SUV in India. Tata Motors, however, have been tight-lipped about the variants of the Nexon sub-4m SUV. A brochure now gives details of the Tata Nexon variants that will be available for the Indian market.
The new Tata Nexon will sold in the base XE, XM, XT and XZ+ trims. These trims will be available with both petrol as well as diesel engine options. Here is how the line-up of the new Tata Nexon looks like:
The base trim of the Nexon will have white accents on the front fog lamps, side belt line as well as the tail gate. There will also be the standard LED tail lights. Tata also offers side body protection in the form of mouldings. There will be a three-tone interior scheme with a full fabric upholstery. The umbrella holder will be available with both the front doors, driver information system with fuel efficiency display and other details, multi drive modes, manual AC, steering wheel with tilt adjustment as well as front power windows. The tyre size is 195/60-R16
The Nexon XM gets all the features of the XE plus a centre antenna, dual tone wheel covers, non-touchscreen infotainment system with four speakers, steering mounted controls, rear sensors as well as Park Assist, remote central locking, all four power windows, electric adjustment for the outside mirrors and a USB charger.
Tata offers the Nexon XT with roof rails, shark fin antenna, body coloured door handles and mirrors, automatic climate control, rear vents with adjustable air flow, electric folding function for the ORVMs, illuminated and cooled glovebox and rear 12V power outlet.
This is the top-spec trim of the Tata Nexon and brings with its machined alloy wheels sitting on wider 215 section tyres, dual-tone roofs, projector headlights, LED DRLs, antenna with GPS, front arm rest and sliding storage space, two cup holders with the rear arm rest, 60:40 split rear seats, 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with eight speakers, Android Auto, Tata Motors app, door open and service due reminders, day-night IRVM, park assist system with rear camera and guidelines, front fog lamps with cornering function, rear fog lamps and defogger, driver seat height adjustment, seat belt adjustment for front passengers, push button start with sensors on the door for unlocking and locking the car,
All Tata Nexon variants will be powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged 110PS/170Nm petrol and 1.5-litre 110PS/260Nm turbodiesel engines. Both the engines send power to the front wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Expect the Tata Nexon prices to start from Rs 6 lakh and all the way to Rs 10 lakh. Tata's Nexon SUV will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport as well as the Honda WR-V. In our review, we found the Nexon to be high on features as well as driveability with respect to the diesel engine. The engines are refined and there is also sufficient space inside the cabin. The SUV too looks fresh. Fuel tank capacity stands at 44 litres while the boot space is pegged at 360 litres. Amongst the colour options available for the Tata Nexon SUV, the Morrocan Blue as well as the Vermont Red are available with dual tone and only with the XZ+ trim. Other trims can be also ordered with Calgary White, Seattle Silver and Glasgow Grey colours.
