Tata Nexon Geneva Edition

Tata Motors is prepping to make inroads into the highly competitive subcompact SUV space this festive season with Tata Nexon. The model has been caught testing several times post its display at the last year’s Auto Expo in concept form. Tata used one of the largest platforms globally, to reveal the SUV to the global media at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show alongside other future models. The latest spy shots of the model, that seem to be a lower variant of the SUV (not the base trim though), give inkling of the exterior and interior bits.

Sporting steel rims on the outside, the spied model seems to be a lower variant in the line-up. In addition, it also gets the shark fin antenna and rear wiper. While on the inside, it featured a rotary drive modes selector, chrome bits around gear, dual tone dashboard and gloss trim on sides of the centre console. The floating touchscreen infotainment system was missing, instead it sported a 2-DIN audio system.  Read Comparison – Tata Nexon Vs Maruti Vitara Brezza

On the safety front, Nexon is likely to get dual airbags and ABS as standard. Set for a festive season launch, Nexon carline is expected to get a choice between a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engine with a six-speed manual and an AMT unit.

A late entrant into the segment, Tata Motors is betting big on the Nexon. The SUV raked in good reviews from the onlookers and experts alike at the 2016 Auto Expo last year. With Nexon, Tata eyes generating volumes in the exponentially growing segment that is currently ruled by Ford EcoSport and Maruti Vitara Brezza. While there is still time in the launch of Nexon, reports in media opine, Tata could price it aggressively, undercutting arch rivals by a substantial margin.

Tata Nexon Launch Date

Tata will foray into the subcompact SUV space with Nexon that will go up against Ford EcoSport and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. While Tata is yet to make an official announcement on the launch plans, it is expected that Tata will introduce the SUV by either September or October this year. Check Out: Tata Tiago – Price List, Specifications & Mileage

Tata Nexon Price in India

Variants Expected Price (ex-showroom)
Base Model Rs 6.50 lakh
Top Model Rs 10.50 lakh

Considering that Tata is a late entrant in the subcompact SUV segment, it will have to fight against credible players that have already crafted a niche spot in the highly contested segment. In a bid to limit the price, Tata is looking at comprehensive localisation. It is expected that Nexon could be priced in the range of Rs 6.50 lakh to Rs 10.50 lakh. At this pricing, the SUV will undercut arch rivals in the segment by a considerable margin. Photo Gallery: Upcoming Tata Cars in India

Tata Nexon Exterior Design

Built from ground up, Nexon is a new product from Tata built on its new IMPACT design language. While the SUV carries contemporary looks, Tata has infused some aerodynamically designed elements on the outside. Tata has so far launched three models under its new design language namely-Tiago, Hexa and Tigor. With most of the prominence on the visual appeal, these cars not only carry sassy looks, but boast of large proportions that set them apart from the rivalling models in the segment. The new Nexon subcompact SUV is aimed at the young buyers and sports elements such as Tata’s signature Humanity Line chrome grille up front.

The face also gets projector headlamps with integrated DRLs, large bumper and square-like bonnet. The large windscreen in front provides better visibility from inside. Side profile of the SUV features blacked-out C-pillar, roof mounted spoiler, flared wheel arches and floating roofline. In addition, it also comes with body cladding, 17-inch alloy wheels and sharp beltline. Rear side with elements like LED taillamps, integrated spoiler and contrasting tone rising beltline finisher looks sporty.

Tata Nexon Interior

As claimed by Tata Motors, the insides of the SUV have been crafted to serve functionality. Even though it measures less than four meters in length, Nexon offers generous space on the inside. The carline will pack host of new tech, save for the lower trims that are likely to miss out on several goodies. While the top-spec grades in the carline will offer leather upholstery, rear air-conditioning vents, multi-functional steering wheel and automatic climate control etc.

Tata Nexon Interior

As for connectivity, it will equip a 6.5-inch freestanding touchscreen infotainment system from Harman, steering mounted controls, knob for switching between different driving modes to name a few.

In terms of practicality, the cabin will offer multiple storage points like bottle holders, cup holders, large boot space, laptop trays, iPad trays, handbag hangers etc. While on the safety front, expect Nexon to offer dual airbags, 9th gen ABS with EBD, advanced dual path suspension, corner stability, rear view camera interface with an inbuilt infotainment system and ISOFIX rear outboard.

I like TATA cars and recently they have come up with really beautiful products… i will wait for this cargo to launch will love if it is going to have more than 5 seats. TATA have to think seriously to introduce 7 seater MPV as this is the new sucess formula…

    Tata Nexon is amazing, design is really good. Interior gives feel of Luxury car and it really looks like vehicle for next generation. Definitely a step ahead in design and comfort with others in its segment/ also any pre-existing cars. This time Nexon is the one which created huge buzz.

    I own an indica vista safire aura and it has been riding too well. However i wish to upgrade to tata nexon. Unfortunately i came to know nexon petrol is a 3 cylinder suv. In a hilly terrain where i live 3 cylinder suvs aren’t much preferred. As such i am eyeing on the diesel variant of nexon but the no of cylinders it will have is not mentioned anywhere though it is supposed to have 1.5l engine

      The 1.5-litre diesel engine of the Nexon will have four cylinders. And even if you are going for the petrol model, the 3-cylinder unit should not be a problem. Cars like Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon too can handle hilly roads despite having 3-cylinder engine with even less displacement.

    I like Tata cars because they are sturdy and heavy. Feel planted on road at good speeds unlike many competitions. I owned Marina, used it for nine years (over 80,000 kms) and had no problem at all. Only once I had to change battery. That is all that I spent except filling petrol.
    After I met with a major accident in my Maruti, I decided never to buy a Maruti again.
    My son owns Bolt. Its a great car. On highways, its a too good.
    Awaiting for launch of Nexon. Like my earlier Marina, I hope I will be the first person to get Nexon delivery.

    The new elegant and sporty design of tata along with pleasing interiors and long list of premium features hs changed my mentality towards tata….I used to think I will never buy any of the tata cars because of several complaints ..but I drove tata bolt xt diesel and forgot all hatchbacks.it was a surprising experience to me…the cabin is just like the luxury sports car and it engine was quite refined..the infotainment system by Harman is just awsome and unmatched …… Looking forward to the compact SUV ….nexon I will definetly buy it if I liked it….and after seeing its pics I m going to like it..
