Tata Nexon is one of the most awaited cars in India this year. It will mark Tata’s entry into the compact SUV segment. Tata has already picked up some market share with the launch of products like Tiago, Hexa and Tigor. The Nexon will further help the brand to gain the market.
The sub 4-metre SUV has been caught quite a few times testing around the country. This time, the test mules have been caught at night that reveals the beautiful LED DRLs and LED tail lamps of the vehicle. The Nexon was caught in Manali and later the vehicles were spotted on their way to Leh.
The Nexon caught in images sports a sharp DRL that surrounds the projector lamp neatly. At the rear, the Nexon also gets V-shaped LED taillamps similar to the Tiago and the Tigor. The split tail lamp unit looks unique at night and will give an individualistic appeal to the vehicle.
Tata Nexon will be launched during the festive season this year. The car will be powered by 1.5-litre diesel engine that will produce a maximum power of 108 Bhp, making it the most powerful diesel car in the segment. The petrol engine will be a 1.2-litre turbocharged unit that will be used in the Tata RaceMo but it will come in a re-tuned state.
The Nexon is expected to come with 3 driving modes (Eco, City and Sport). It will get an option of 6-speed manual gearbox or 6-speed AMT. On the inside, the Nexon will get 6.5-inch touchscreen system with 8-speaker Harmon system.
The Nexon will take on the likes of Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra NuvoSport in the market. Tata has followed an exemplary strategy to price new vehicles like Tiago, Hexa and Tigor, the brand is expected to do the same with the Nexon.
