Tata Nexon Geneva Edition

Tata Nexon was recently spotted testing in production ready avatar sans camouflage. Nexon will soon debut in the subcompact SUV space to take on the likes of Ford EcoSport and Maruti Vitara Brezza, the strongest players in the segment. The spotted model seemed to be the range topping trim in the line-up. Prior to its unveiling at the 87th Geneva Motor Show, the SUV was showcased at last year’s Auto Expo.

As for the launch, the company is planning a festive season launch this year. Built on Tata’s IMPACT design language, the production version is largely similar to the concept model. Aside from the styling and design elements from the current model, the SUV has received additional bits on the outside and inside. In front, it gets Tata’s quintessential smiling grille with Tata’s logo, projector headlamps and other dynamics in line with the IMPACT design tenet for sporty and peppy look.

The side profile gets pronounced wheel arches, prominent cladding, ORVMs with integrated blinkers and a sharp beltline that merges with the tail-light cluster. The blacked out area on the C-pillar has been carried over from the concept model that gives look of a floating roof. Other bits such as roof rails, black plastic moulding on door pads, roof-mounted spoiler, clear lens tail lights, blacked out area around number plate are in tandem with its sporty character.

Insides are spacious and pack a raft of best-in class features including Harman sourced touchscreen infotainment system, leather seats, rear air-conditioner etc. Power on the SUV will come from the new 1.5-litre Revotorq oil burner and the 1.2-litre, Revotron turbocharged engine with a standard 5-speed manual unit and an optional AMT.

    Beautiful design. I am planing to buy 7 seater car, is this car going to be 5 seater or 7 seater. 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..
