Tata Nexon Geneva Edition

Tata Nexon recently made an appearance at the 87th Geneva Motor Show alongside other future models. A near production version of the subcompact SUV was showcased at last year’s Auto Expo and since then, it has been spotted testing across the country, giving insight into the changes before it hits production.

While it retains most of the styling and design cues from the concept model, Tata has made several changes to the exterior and interior. In one of the latest sightings, the vehicle was seen sporting production ready bumpers, door protectors, tail-lamps and wheels. The new dynamics on the SUV is in line with Tata’s IMPACT design tenet that gives it sporty and peppy look. Tata claims to have added aerodynamic design cues to the vehicle, aiding enhanced visibility from front, rear and sides. Use of elements like chrome treated ‘Humanity Line’ upper grille, headlamps with DRLs, 17-inch alloy wheels, sharp beltline and LED tail-lamps infuse aggression to the exterior profile.

On the inside, it is spacious, packed with several best-in-class features like Harman sourced touchscreen infotainment system, rear air-conditioning vents, leather seats etc. Tata has also worked around storage space which adds to the practicality of the cabin. Mechanicals powering the SUV include a new 1.5-litre Revotorq oil burner and the 1.2-litre, Revotron turbocharged unit with a standard-speed manual and optional AMT unit. Set for a festive season launch, Nexon will face off arch rivals Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport in the segment. Read Comparison – Tata Nexon Vs Maruti Vitara Brezza

    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..
