The Tata Nexon has been one of the most awaited car launches in India in the recent times. Ever since it was first revealed in its concept form, the Tata Nexon has been highly anticipated, as its sporty and muscular design garnered a lot of attention and praises. Now, recently the new upcoming Tata Nexon compact SUV was caught testing on the roads. The Nexon has been already spotted busy going about its road tests a number of times before donned in full camouflage and dummy panels and components to disguise its identity. However, this time around, it is clearly apparent that the spied test mule belongs to the upcoming Tata Nexon and that too its production ready avatar, featuring its own body panels.
As per the latest spy pics, the new upcoming Tata Nexon is going to look near identical to its display version that was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. The one spy picture which shows the Nexon’s rear design revealed partly through torn camouflages show that the tail gate of the vehicle has the exact same design of that of the concept model. The Tata Nexon that was showcased at the Indian auto show flaunted a very attractive electric blue shade, which highlighted the vehicle’s bold design attributes. At the time of the Auto Expo earlier this year, the Tata Motors had also revealed that the company will be offering a wide range of customizations on the Nexon which will include things like body colored belt-line as well upper radiator grille.
The Tata Nexon will get projector headlights and attractive LED tail lights. It will ride on stylish 16 inch alloy wheels, offer a good ground clearance of 200 mm and feature dual-path suspension system. It will also offer smartly designed interior to go with its attention grabbing exterior design. The cabin will be loaded with premium features like a 6.5 inch touchscreen infotainment system along with 8 speakers, multi-information display, automatic climate control, drive mode selector, steering wheel mounted controls, keyless entry, pushbutton ignition, power adjustable and foldable wing mirrors and much more.
The new upcoming Tata Nexon compact SUV will be getting equipped with a 1.2 liter turbocharged mill. The 1.5 liter diesel engine will be a part of the newly developed Tata Revotorq diesel engine family, and will be capable of churning out a top power of 110 bhp along with a peak torque 260 Nm. Transmission duty will be carried out by a 6 speed manual as well as an automated manual transmission (AMT) gearbox choice.
The Indian car major will be entering the highly popular and rapidly growing segment of the compact SUV models in India with its Nexon that seems to be highly promising. Post its official launch in the domestic car market of India, the Tata Nexon will be rivaling the massively popular Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza subcompact SUV. The Nexon is likely to hit the Indian car market by this year’s festive season.
