Tata Unveils Nexon Compact SUV At Auto Expo

It is raining compact SUVs these days. The compact SUV segment is gaining fast momentum now with the Ford EcoSport leading the pack. Tata Motors wants to regain its lost glory and the company is coming up with new products that will appeal more to buyers. Tata Motors has now unveiled the Nexon which is a compact SUV. The Nexon is a completely new vehicle and not the Jump which was earlier displayed. The Tata Nexon is based on the new X1 platform which is also shared by the Zest and Bolt.
The Nexon looks significantly different than the other vehicles from Tata’s stable and we are all praises. The overall design surely looks very futuristic and the theme is carried forward to the interiors too. This vehicle will be a sure-shot success if priced and specced properly. The automaker has also sportier alloy wheels to the Nexon. The ground clearance has also been increased. Even the lights look very snazzy.
The Tata Nexon has the 1.2-litre Revotron turbocharged petrol unit under the hood. This powerplant is capable of churning out 83 BHP of power and 140 Nm of torque. It will also have a diesel engine option but it is not going to be the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre Quadrajet engine which Tata uses in its other vehicles. Instead, Tata Motors is developing a new oil-burner that will power the Nexon. The Tata Nexon will start rolling out from the assembly line in 2015 and it will compete with the Ford EcoSport, Renault Duster, VW Taigun and Nissan Terrano. We are expecting this to be priced much lower than its rivals.
