Tata Motors has been pushing hard and seems to be very aggressive with its product line up. The way Tata motors has emerged with new vehicles like Tiago, Hexa, Tigor and then Nexon, is commendable. The Indian market is now more reclined towards SUVs and now compact SUVs have too started attracting the new young buyers. Tata launched Nexon in September, 2017 and since then it is making headlines and attracting lot of new buyers. Tata Nexon Compact SUV has already crossed 25,000 mark in just 6 months and the Tata Nexon has a waiting time of arround 6 months depending upon the variant.
The Nexon has been proving every bit of it and this can be seen with the increasing numbers of Nexon in the Indian roads. However, the only lacking point of Nexon has also been mitigated with the Nexon AMT version which was showcased in the Auto Expo which is expected to be launched in next 2-3 months and this would surely help Tata to gain more buyers.
The Compact SUV is offered with two new engine which are developed in-house by TATA, the 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engine and 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine. The diesel engine has a displacement of 1497 CC with churns out a maximum of 108 bhp @ 3750 rpm with torque of 260 Nm @ 1500-2750 rpm which is mated with a 6 speed manual transmission. The petrol engine has a displacement of 1198 CC with a maximum output of 108 bhp @ 5000 rpm with a peak torque of 170 Nm @ 1750-4000 rpm and this is to a 6 speed manual. Although the AMT version is already in its way to make more stir in compact SUV segment.
Tata Nexon being a sub 4 meter SUV has created stir in compact SUV and crossover segment. It has direct rival with the best selling Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and also Hyundai Creta. It has also made difficulties for crossover segment like Honda BRV, WRV and Hyundai i20 Actve. The pricing has been done very right way to keep it as lowest, yet value for money compact SUV.
