The Nexon AMT petrol variant costs Rs. 9.41 lakh, while the diesel will set you back by Rs. 10.30 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi).
Tata Motors has launched the two-pedalled Nexon Hyprdrive S-SG (AMT) in India. The automated manual transmission offered on the Nexon is a 6-speed unit, which is mated to either a 1.2-litre petrol with 108bhp and 170Nm or a 1.5-litre diesel with 108bhp and 260Nm.
Sporting the all-new Etna Orange colour with a silver dual-tone roof option, the Nexon AMT features a ground clearance of 209mm. The car is also equipped with an intelligent transmission controller that has features such as anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off, which help optimise the automatic gearshifts.
Additionally, the car comes with features like Smart Hill Assist and Crawl function. While the Smart Hill Assist prevents the Nexon from rolling-back on uphill drives during bumper-to-bumper traffic, the Crawl function comes into play during slow moving traffic by helping the car move ahead without pressing the accelerator.
Along with the launch of Nexon AMT, Tata Motors has announced the launch of its online car customisation platform called ‘Imaginator’. It is a platform that offers flexibility to a user to enhance the look of his/her car by visualising and adding the required accessories. This platform also enables a seamless online accessories purchase.
Mayank Pareek, President of Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors, said, ‘Our focus is to introduce products and services that not only enhance the brand but also simultaneously align well with rising aspirations of customer segments. AMT as a transmission is ideally suited for India’s traffic conditions, reducing the stress of driving at an affordable price, without compromising on fuel efficiency. With the introduction of the Hyprdrive S-SG in the NEXON, we aim to tap a larger market and increase our market share in not only the Compact SUV segment but also the AMT segment.’
