Tata Motors‘ new car offensive is far from over and after launching the Bolt and the Zest, it is readying, at least, three more all-new models, along with facelifts of existing cars, for near future. While enough has already been reported about the Tata Tiago hatchback (Indica–replacement) and the Tata Kite-based compact sedan (Indigo eCS–replacement), not much has been known about the upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza– and Ford EcoSport-adversary from one of the largest Indian car manufacturers. The Tata Nexon compact SUV will spearhead Tata Motors’ charge in the fast heating compact-SUV segment. Tata is expected to launch the Nexon in the first quarter of 2017 at a starting price of roughly INR 7 lacs. Here we have compiled all the available details on the Tata Nexon Price in India and launch details, price, specifications, etc.
The new compact SUV from Tata is still 7-8 months away from us with the Tata Nexon India launch expected to happen in early 2017 and only then will we be able to give you an idea about the Tata Nexon price. The Nexon was unveiled in almost production-ready form at the Auto Expo in February. Tata Motors and its products, over the years, have come to be associated with the taxi market, an issue the manufacturer desperately needs to address. They have been successful in doing so with the Zest and the Bolt to some extent and new products such as the Nexon, Hexa and others should really help the manufacturer. Stay tuned to remain updated on Tata Nexon Price in India and launch details.

Tata Nexon Features

- Touchscreen infotainment
- Multi-function Steering Wheel
- Automatic Air-conditioning
- LED DRLs
- LED tail lamps
- Projector Headlamps
- Harman-sourced 8-speaker Audio Setup
In terms of aesthetics, Tata is likely to offer the Nexon with a dual tone colour scheme, stylish alloys and a black-grey colour scheme for the interiors.
Tata Nexon Exterior Design
Keeping in with the manufacturer’s latest design language, the Nexon concept based compact SUV would have all the design elements of a modern Tata car. These comprise of – The Humanity Line, Diamond DLO and the Slingshot Line. Designers have also made use of ceramic finish appliques in the front bumper, window line and the at the back. The best part about the design is that it stays true to the concept that was showcased a few years back. Tata has stated that the looks will take precedence and that they will be targeting a younger demographic.
Tata Nexon Interior
The interiors could borrow heavily from the soon-to-be-launched Tiago (Zica). The rear seat space and headroom could be compromised as Tata aims to make a style statement with the Nexon. When launched, the Nexon will be unlike any other compact SUV on sale thanks to its coupe-like silhouette, dual tone colour scheme and the use of ceramic applique all around. It would definitely be the car to buy if you want to stand out from the crowd.
Tata Nexon Engine & Transmission
Details on the upcoming model’s technical specs are scarce, but in all probability, the Nexon compact SUV would feature a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that would belt out a peak power-torque of around 110 bhp-170 Nm. This unit will be a turbocharged version of the 1.2 L Revotron engine that will power the upcoming Tiago hatchback. The diesel motor will be a new 1.5-litre unit which will churn out close to 110 bhp. Transmission options will include an AMT. This will make the Nexon the most powerful diesel compact SUV on sale in the country. Expect claimed Tata Nexon mileage to be around 19 kmpl for the Diesel variant.
