The Tata Nexon is Tata Motors’ first attempt at cracking the sub-4 metre compact SUV segment, where it faces established rivals like the Maruti Brezza and Ford Ecosport. Expected to be launched in a price range of Rs 6.5-9.5 lakh, it is available with two turbocharged engines. The Tata Nexon petrol is powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron petrol motor (110PS/170Nm), while the diesel uses a new 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel mill (110PS/260Nm). Both the engines will be mated to a brand new 6-speed manual gearbox, while a 6-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) will be introduced at a later stage (by or before April 2018). As of now, Tata Motors has not revealed the mileage figures for either version of the Tata Nexon. The Tata Nexon comes with front-wheel drive only and an all-wheel drive variant is unlikely to be introduced. Length x width x height x wheelbase dimensions come in at 3,994mm x 1,811mm x 1,607mm x 2,498mm, while the unladen ground clearance is rated at 209mm. It has a fuel tank capacity of 44-litres, while the boot space comes in at a healthy 350-litres (expandable to 690L with the 60:40 split rear seatback folded down). Apart from a unique styling package, the Tata Nexon also comes equipped with an expansive list of features. To begin with, it gets dual front airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and ABS with EBD and CSC (corner stability control) as standard, which is a great move by Tata Motors. Further, it offers goodies such as a 6.5-inch ‘ConnectNext’ HD touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and multiple driving modes (Eco, City and Sport). It also gets features such as projector headlamps with daytime running lights, an 8-speaker sound system (4 speakers and 4 tweeters) and automatic climate control with rear AC vents. Tata Motors is also expected to officially commence the bookings in a few days time. The Nexon launch is most likely to happen either this month or next month.
