Tata Nexon has probably been the most awaited vehicle from Tata Motors in a long long time, and it has been finally launched at an event in Mumbai. Priced between Rs 5.85 lakh – Rs 9.44 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Nexon is available in a total of 10 variants across petrol and diesel models. While it’s too early to comment if it will be able to topple its direct rivals, it surely has the potential to become a huge success story for the home-grown carmaker. We drove it in and around Kochi, and were mighty impressed with the way it performed. We found it to be the most rounded package in its category, thanks to its superior interior quality and power output figures.
So if you are one of those looking to buy the Tata Nexon, here are 5 interesting things you should know about it.
1. Looks exactly like its concept
The car’s concept made its debut at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, followed by its rather close-to-production model at the 2016 Expo. And now that the car has been finally launched, we can safely say that the car has remained more or less similar to the concept – something that only a few carmakers have been able to achieve in the history of automobile. The car still looks like a concept, and that makes its design a stand-out. The Nexon is based on the same IMPACT design philosophy that made its debut with the Tiago, followed by the Tigor and the Hexa.
While there are several interesting elements, the ones that make it look unique include – Tata’s broad honeycomb grille with signature humanity line, projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, coupe-like roof line, triple tone rear, ceramic white stripes across body, etc. Read – Tata Nexon Vs Maruti Vitara Brezza

Thanks to Tata’s new 1.2-litre Revotron petrol (3-cylinder turbocharged) and 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel (4-cylinder, turbocharged) engines, the Nexon is the most powerful car in its category. While the petrol engine produces 108bhp with 170Nm, the diesel is claimed to churn out 108bhp with 260Nm. Read About: Tata Tiago Aktiv | Tata Tiago Sport
