I'm having in blue
Steering wheel slips a lot, no grip
A proper leather-wrapped steering wheel would have made the driving experience even better. However, with the kind of steering wheel the Nexon has right now, the experience is not so good. There is almost no grip in the steering wheel and as a
result, if my hands are completely dry, which they do become when the AC is on, then operating the wheel becomes an issue as it tends to slip a lot, especially in single-hand operation.
Excellent suspension and drive quality
The suspension on the Nexon is very well balanced. It is soft enough to absorb almost any kind of potholes but, it is firm enough to provide a rock-solid and stable high-speed drive. Very few cars are blessed with such a well-rounded setup. Deeply
satisfied with my Nexon.
Good amount of storage inside
The door pockets are big enough to hold large water bottles, the central cup holders can easily hold tall glasses and the dashboard storage is wide and deep. Overall, there is plenty of storage area in the car which is fully usable. It is indeed a
Quite a few panel gaps
As I started using my Nexon frequently, I could not help but notice that there were some odd panel gaps both in the interior of the car and in the exterior panels as well. On my car, I found these gaps between the bonnet and fenders and between the
dashboard lid and the main dashboard. This only shows Tata has just begun in the right direction. It still has a long way to go.
Engine lacks punch
Gear lever sticks in reverse
Every now and then, when I try to engage reverse gear, the gear lever does slot into it despite putting all effort. It is also not because of the release plug not being pulled properly. Every time this happens, I have to move the car a little
forward and then I have to try again. No idea as to why this happens, that too, not regularly but just on a few occasions.
Despite having projector headlights on the top variant, the low beam is quite weak in my opinion. I am forced to switch to high beam even at partially lit stretches of the road. I think I will have to get the original bulbs replaced with
high-powered LED bulbs or go for a HID set up.
Rough sound from suspension
Every time the car goes into a deep pothole at high speeds, there is a strong ‘clunk’ noise from the front left suspension. It sounds as if metal is hitting metal. However, it is not the case on the front right wheel. I had the car checked at
the workshop but they informed that everything was fine and no part was damaged/broken which might be contributing to the sound.
Best car for long-distance driving
Good mileage, plenty of power and a smooth, comfortable ride – For me, these are the ingredients for an ideal long-distance drive and the Nexon provides these three in the best possible manner. I am very happy with my car and I am planning to buy
another one for my brother very soon.
Interiors feel and look premium
The interiors of the Nexon are a pleasant change from the beige ones that most other cars come with these days. The grey-black theme has been used cleverly to avoid any dullness and on the contrary, it looks quite modern and futuristic. Plastic
quality has vastly improved from the previous Tata cars.
Spacious and comfortable cabin
The Nexon looks quite compact from the outside but on the inside, it has a lot offer, especially in terms of seating comfort and space at the rear. It is the ideal car for long journeys and there is plenty of space in the boot as well for luggage of
Paint and panel quality is top notch
Most cars develop some kind of a dent or scratch at the smallest of bumps with any other vehicle. However, the Nexon proves this point wrong. I have had a few bumps and scrapes with some 2-wheelers at decent speeds but to my surprise, the paint is
still intact in those places with only a few scratches on the surface. Even the panels have not been dented in any way. Genuinely surprised by this.
Fitment and quality issues
I started facing some quality issues with my Nexon within a few days of using it. First, the dashboard developed odd ‘squeaking’ sounds which are constantly there when the car is on idle. Second, I had to get the rear seat lock adjusted as the
seat did not close after it had been folded for the first time. There was also a metallic ‘knocking’ noise coming from the right front door whenever the music was on in the car. It turned out to be loose window motor bolts rattling due to the vibration from the door speakers.
Driving modes actually work
I always felt that this new fad of ‘Driving modes’ is nothing but a marketing gimmick. However, when I tried them out in the Nexon, my opinion was instantly changed. Not only is there a marked difference in the engine performance in each of the
three modes but there is even a noticeable difference in the mileage figures.
Android Auto works flawlessly
Android Auto connectivity of my phone with the car is amazing. Using important apps like Google Maps has become even more convenient thanks to this. However, the screen does feel a bit small when using navigation, otherwise, it is perfectly fine for
scrolling through menus.
Music system and touch screen are very good
The Harman music system on the XZ+ variant is by far the best quality system I have come across in a car of this price range. Even the touchscreen is smooth to use, does not hang and the resolution is also decent. Overall, it makes the car feel
System settings reset after call on Bluetooth
I am not sure if this fault can be rectified by an update or laptop diagnosis, but it is certainly annoying. Every time after receiving and ending a call when the phone is connected to the car via Bluetooth, the music settings, like the equalizer
levels, are reset. I have to go into the menu to set them all over again. Will have it checked out at the workshop during my next visit.
