Tata Motors launched its long-awaited subcompact SUV Nexon in manual variants, albeit an AMT gearbox will soon be added to the line-up. The test mules of the Nexon AMT have been spied lately and now an internal document has surfaced on the inter-web that reveals concrete details about the Nexon AMT.
According to the leaked scans of the legal document, the Nexon AMT will be launched in both petrol and diesel variants. Besides, the Nexon XZA (AMT version) will come in a new exterior colour scheme codenamed Mari Gold. Additionally, Tata is expected to offer an optional sunroof to the list of OEM accessories for the Nexon.
