The Tata Nexon has already started arriving at dealerships after bookings began earlier this month. It is available only with a six-speed manual transmission at the moment, in both petrol and diesel engine options. Tata will soon introduce automatic variants with both engines too.
The Nexon will be available in five colour choices: Moroccan blue, Vermont red, Seattle silver, Glasgow grey and Calgary white.
The petrol model of the Tata Nexon comes with a 1.2-litre three-cylinder, turbo-charged, petrol engine that puts out 110PS of power and 170 Nm of torque. The diesel variant comes with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder, diesel engine that puts out 110PS of power and 260Nm of torque.
Its main rivals are the Maruti Vitara Brezza (currently available only in diesel, petrol coming soon) and Ford EcoSport. The Tata Nexon does put out better power and torque figure in the diesel variant compared to its rivals, while the petrol is about at par with the Ford EcoSport (Ecoboost) on torque.
Tata Nexon Price Comparison
How does it compare on price? The Maruti Vitara Brezza is available only in diesel and is priced between Rs 7.24 lakh and Rs 9.91 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. The Ford EcoSport is priced between Rs 6.68 lakh and Rs 9.98 lakh ex-showroom, across both petrol and diesel variants. The Honda WR-V is priced between Rs 7.67 lakh and Rs 9.92 lakh ex-showroom Delhi, again with both petrol and diesel variants. Among these, the Ford EcoSport is the only model with an automatic transmission - only in petrol.
Tata Nexon Features
All models of the Tata Nexon come with dual airbags and ABS as standard fitment. All variants also come with Tata's multi-drive mode selector (Sport, Eco and City) offering the best performance possible based on the driving conditions. From the XM model upwards, it is equipped with a Harman infotainment system. The XT model gets automatic climate control. The XZ gets an even better unit with 8 speakers. Push button ignition, chilled glove box, powered mirrors, remote wearable key, rear AC vents, daytime running lamps and dual-tone paint scheme are all present in the XZ+ model.
With the number of features on offer and the ride quality and handling the Nexon offers, it does seem like a value-for-money compact SUV.
