Tata added the Nexon to its portfolio of vehicles to set a foot into the compact SUV segment, and launched it in Pune today. Tata aims at the younger masses with the Nexon, which it shows through striking styling of the vehicle.
The Nexon comes with two engine options:
- 1.2 litre, 3 cylinder Revotron Turbocharged Petrol engine
- 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder Revotorq Turbocharged Diesel engine
Bothe motors make identical power -110 PS, and the torque figures are 170NM and 260NM for Petrol and Diesel engines, respectively.
The Nexon gets a 6 speed transmission and three driving modes; Eco, City, Sport.
Offered in four trims, -XE, XM, XT, XZ+ the top end XZ+ gets the optional dual tone roof, which here, is in metallic silver. Based on the Impact design language, Tata says the design breaks the perception of an SUV being imagined with a boxy body. The aim here was to create a sports coupe roofline over an SUV.
