Tata Nexon launched in India

Indian car makers Tata have just launched the all new compact crossover vehicle called the Nexon. The Nexon will take the fight directly to Matuti’s Brezza and the Honda WR-V. The Tata Nexon carries a good price tag and starts at Rs. 5.85 lakh for the base petrol variant, while the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 9.44 lakh – ex-showroom, Delhi. Based on Tata’s new Impact design language, the Nexon certainly looks new and fresh. It gets a big honeycomb grille mesh, which compliments the sleek projector headlights with day time running lamps.

The silhouette and broad shoulder lines give the Nexon loads of character. The top-end XZ+ trim of the Tata Nexon gets the option of a dual tone paint scheme. The Tata Nexon ditches the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre diesel motor and replaces it with a new 1.5-litre diesel motor. This unit is good for 108bhp and 260Nm. The petrol powered Nexon too produces 108bhp too, but from a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged motor. Torque rating for the petrol stands at 170Nm. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Like latest generation of Tata’s vehicles, the Nexon features different driving modes – Eco, City and Sport.
