Europe's biggest annual auto fair, the Geneva Motor Show, got off to a grand start on a Tuesday and the moment that kept those glued to the happenings back in India was the grand unveiling of Tata TAMO's RaceMo. As if the presentation of RaceMo, India's very own connected sports car at the world stage was not enough to push the adrenalin up, Tata had more surprise in store by unveiling the Nexon along with Tigor, both future models of the company at the Motor show.

Tata Nexon, the nearly-production ready version had made an appearance at Auto Expo last year. And this year, Tata took it to Geneva and what we saw is a well sculpted sub-four-metre SUV with a dual tone exterior colour scheme.
The front fascia of the Nexon wears chrome 'Humanity Line' on the upper grille and features projector headlamps with daytime running lights (DRLs). At the rear, the Nexon gets LED tail lamps, a contrast tone rising beltline finisher and a floating roof. The Nexon Geneva special edition rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
