The Nexon XMA petrol is priced at ₹7.50 lakh, while the diesel costs ₹8.53 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi).
Two months back, Tata Motors introduced the two-pedalled Nexon Hyprdrive S-SG (AMT) in India. The car was only made available in the top-spec XZA+ variant. Now, to further penetrate in to the automatic drive market, Tata has announced the launch of the Nexon XMA, which sports the AMT gearbox in its mid-spec XM variant.
With this introduction, the Nexon range will have two AMT variants - XMA & XZA+. Just like the other AMT variant, the Tata Nexon XMA will be offered with both engine options - 1.2-litre petrol with 108bhp/170Nm or 1.5-litre diesel with 108bhp/260Nm.
In addition to providing a clutchless driving experience, the car comes with features like Smart Hill Assist and Crawl function as well. While the Smart Hill Assist prevents 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.
The XMA variant costs approximately 2 lakh less than the top-spec XZA+ variant, both in petrol and diesel forms, therefore making the automatic Nexon much more accessible to those looking for an automatic compact SUV on a slightly tighter budget.
