In the past few years, Tata Motors has really stepped up its game. They are now one of the strongest manufacturers in India. Tata Motors is known for having great build quality and safety features. The vehicle that put Tata Motors on everyone’s radar was the Nexon. It scored 4 stars in the Global NCAP crash test. Since then, we have seen a significant increase in the sales figures of Nexon. People have been buying them and then modifying them to make their Nexon unique. Here, is a Nexon whose rear section has been converted into a bed.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Rahul Choudhary. The vlogger is planning to go on camping so he decided to modify the Nexon. Then he shows the rear half of the Nexon where we can see a bed. The person has folded the rear seats of the Nexon. Once that is done there is a huge step on the floor. So, to counter that the floor was covered with a mattress.
The vlogger has installed fairy lights that run on power banks. He has 2 power banks with him. He did this so that the battery of the vehicle is not degraded. The power bank can be charged during the day when the vehicle is running. There is also another solar LED light that mimics the look of a lamp and Bluetooth speaker. There is a cubby space and water bottle holders integrated into the doors of the Nexon.
According to the vlogger, there is enough space for two adults to sleep. The windows can be opened slightly when the person is sleeping for ventilation. He also says that there is ample headroom. Because this Nexon is equipped with an electric sunroof, the vlogger can look at the stars during the nighttime. He can also open the sunroof to increase ventilation. If it rains, then the sunroof can be closed. One important thing to note here is that the setup might look nice, but there is no place to put luggage now so the occupants would have to travel with very little luggage.
Coming back to the Nexon, it starts at Rs. 7.28 lakhs ex-showroom and goes up to Rs. 13.23 lakhs ex-showroom. It is available in five variants. Tata launched the facelift of the Nexon last year. They gave it a new front fascia and also made the engines BS6 compliant.
There is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The petrol engine produces 120 PS of max power and 170 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine produces 110 PS of max power and 260 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines are offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed AMT. The Nexon competes against the Mahindra XUV300, Ford Ecosport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite.
