Dual-tone paint jobs are the latest trends in the Indian market. There are many car owners who choose dual-tone paint jobs that make the vehicle look sportier than the monotone colours. However, dual-tone paint jobs can be expensive and many customers prefer getting a wrap over their vehicles instead. A wrap is simply a thin film that is added to the body of the car. Here is a Tata Nexon owner who has used the same method to transform the look of his car. The sub-4m compact SUV can be seen in a monotone colour in the starting, which then gets transformed into an eye-catchy dual-tone job.
The video has been uploaded by Manish Verma who has explained the whole process and has also given the full details of the wrapping job. It looks quite different from the regular dual-tone jobs as it also gets a red tape following the roofline of the car. The red tape adds a special look to the car. The red highlight can be seen on the alloy wheels too. According to the video, the whole job took only Rs 2,000, which is a phenomenal price. It should be noted that the manufacturer charges quite a lot of money for the dual-tone colour option. However, the manufacturer offers a permanent paint on the roof while this an only a wrap, which can get damaged due to various conditions like a bird dropping, heat or stone hits. Nevertheless, it only costs a fraction of the factory-painted dual-tone paint job.
It should be noted that the factory painted cars get registered as dual-tone on the Registration Certificate while there is no such need to endorse the colour of a wrap on the RC. The Tata Nexon is offered in dual-tone colours from the manufacturer in the Indian market.
The Tata Nexon is quite a popular car in India. It became one of the best-selling cars in the Indian market soon after its launch. However, competition from the new launches like The Mahindra XUV300 and Hyundai Venue, the sales of Nexon have come down. Still, the Nexon remains a decent seller in the market. The Tata Nexon is the first-ever sub-4m compact SUV from the Indian brand.
The Nexon gets powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. There is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 108 Bhp and a peak torque of 170 Nm. The diesel variants of the Tata Nexon get the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine that generates a maximum power of 108 Bhp and peak torque of 260 Nm. Both the engine options get a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. The Nexon is the only car in the segment that offers AMT automatic transmission with both petrol and diesel engine options.
