Back in 2018, we told how Yash Verma, a Tata Indica V2 Turbo owner clocked 3 lakh km in the hatchback. Now, he has completed more than 2 lakh km in the Tata Nexon. He is probably the first owner to drive the Tata Nexon so much.
Yash Verma has sent us the details showing his Tata Nexon’s odometer rolling from 1,99,999 km to 2,00,000 km. Verma was one of the first buyers of the Tata Nexon when it was launched back in 2017. By 2018, the car had done 24,000 km. This is what Yash Verma said about Nexon in 2018,
We bought the Nexon last year and it has been driven for around 24,000 kilometres till date. The Nexon is mostly driven by the driver and me. We have done a 2,500-kilometre trip in it and usually cover around 300 kilometres on weekends. It returns a mileage of 21 km/l on the highway. The Nexon is a great product by TATA and is really comfortable to drive in. The performance is fabulous and the only issue we have is the servicing, which is better compared to earlier, but still needs to improve. I love both my gems.
The first-ever car in the family – the Indica V2 Turbo completed more than 3 lakh km in 7 years. He said that the Indica gave a fuel efficiency of 18 km/l without the AC and he simply loved how it performs.
Diesel engines have a longer life
Diesel engines have the capability to outlast petrol engines due to the properties of diesel fuel. Diesel fuel acts as a lubricant, ensuring the engine runs smoothly, whereas petrol fuel is detergent in nature. This means that petrol fuel tends to wash away the lubricant coating on the surface of engine components, causing faster wear and tear compared to diesel engines. Generally, diesel engines can last up to 2.5 lakh to 3 lakh km without any issues. Nevertheless, it is crucial to regularly service and maintain both the car and the engine.
Tata Nexon facelift to launch soon
Tata Motors is in the process of developing the updated version of its Nexon compact SUV. Recently, a test prototype of the forthcoming car was spotted on Indian roads. The overall profile of the Nexon facelift’s test prototype appears to be the same as that of the current model.
Although the interior of the updated Nexon is not visible in the spy shots available online, anticipate some noteworthy changes in the cabin as well. The new Nexon variant may come equipped with a revised fully-digital instrument cluster, a new steering wheel, and the latest 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system recently introduced in Harrier and Safari models.
A significant change is expected under the hood of the Nexon facelift, as it may feature a new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that was exhibited at Auto Expo 2023.
