Tata Motors showcased the AMT variant of the Nexon at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2018. In a recent development, it has emerged that the bookings for the Nexon AMT have commenced. The new model is likely to launch in coming weeks. You can book the new Tata Nexon AMT by paying a booking about of Rs 11,000 at any authorized Tata passenger car dealership.

Upon its launch, the Nexon AMT will become a direct rival to the Ford EcoSport AT and the Mahindra TUV300 AMT. The best part is that the AMT variant will be offered on both the petrol and the diesel engine variants of this funky-looking compact SUV. The new transmission will launch on the middle-level XTA and the top-end XZA trims. The AMT version will be available in the new Etna Orange exterior paint shade along with the all the current colour schemes.

Other than the introduction of the AMT, there won’t be any change in the specifications of the car. This means the Nexon AMT will feature the same 1.2-Litre turbocharged petrol and the 1.5-Litre turbocharged Diesel units that are currently available on the manual variants. The petrol mill outputs a maximum power of 108 bhp at 5,000 rpm and a peak torque of 170 Nm torque at 1,750 rpm.

Even the diesel motor outputs a maximum power of 108 bhp. However, it offers a higher peak torque of 260 Nm. Both the engines offer three driving modes – City, Eco, Sport. We are sure that the mileage figures of the AMT models will be at par with those of their manual versions. Also, the AMT for the Nexon will offer the creep feature, which reduces the need for throttle inputs in stop-go traffic.

Chances are that it will also offer the hill assist feature to help you prevent the car from rolling back on an incline. The official price list will be revealed at the time of the launch. However, there are good chances that the Tata Nexon AMT prices will be up to Rs 50,000 higher than those of the corresponding MT trims.
