Tata Nexon Compact SUV Production Begins
Tata Nexon compact SUV production has begun. The Nexon will go on sale in the festive season.
One more compact SUV to look forward too. The production of the Tata Nexon has begun. This compact SUV will be launched just before the festive season. It will compete with the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti Vitara Brezza.
The Tata Nexon concept was first unveiled at the Auto Expo in Delhi in 2014 and subsequently the production-ready model was shown at the Expo in 2016.
Tata is pinning its hopes on the Nexon, which is based on its new-generation platform that also underpins the Tiago and Tigor. The Nexon is a five-seater SUV, that will be powered by a choice of a 1.2-litre petrol, three-cylinder petrol engine, and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. Both these engines will come with six-speed manual transmissions. At a later date, Tata plans to offer automated manual transmission options on the Nexon as well.
It is a compact SUV with high-ground clearance and a sporty stance. It has ample interior space to seat five adults. It comes with three drive modes, city, eco and sport, with a Jaguar-inspired knob to select them. The centre-console as a premium looking stand-up infotainment screen, like the kind seen on premium German SUVs.
The Tata Nexon will be made at Tata’s plant in Ranjangaon, in Pune, which it shares with Fiat India.
The Quint will be driving the Tata Nexon on 27 July, so stay tuned for a full review of the Nexon soon.
