The Tata Nexon starts at Rs. 5.85 lakh for the base petrol variant while the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 9.44 lakh - ex-showroom, Delhi.
Two months after we first got our hands on the Nexon, Tata has finally commenced sale of the compact SUV. The Nexon is priced at Rs. 5.85 lakh for the base petrol while the top end petrol costs Rs. 8.59 lakh. The diesel on the other hand ranges from Rs. 6.85 lakh to Rs. 9.77 lakh. Tata has already commenced bookings of the new Nexon. The compact SUV is made availbale in four trim levels - XE, XM, XT and XZ+.
The Tata Nexon ditches the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre diesel motor and replaces it with a new 1.5-litre diesel motor. This unit is good for 108bhp and 260Nm. The petrol powered Nexon too produces 108bhp too, but from a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged motor. Torque rating for the petrol stands at 170Nm. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Like latest generation of Tata’s vehicles, the Nexon features different driving modes – Eco, City and Sport.
Based on Tata's new Impact design language, the Nexon certainly is refreshing and one of the most dynamic vehicles in the compact SUV segment. It gets a big honeycomb grille mesh, which compliments the sleek projector headlights with day time running lamps. The coupe silhouette and broad shoulder lines give the Nexon loads of character. The top-end XZ+ trim of the Tata Nexon gets the option of a dual tone paint scheme.
With this launch Tata finally has a challenger in the compact SUV segment. It will take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V and the Ford EcoSport. We have already compared the new Nexon with some of the cars in the segment. Read our detailed comparison here.
