Tata Nexon River Crossing
The video clip has been shot near a water crossing. Guessing by the number plate of the Nexon, the location must be somewhere in Jharkhand. The blue Nexon looks like a new purchase. The co-passenger is seen filming the event out of the sunroof of the car. The water level is quite high but the SUV simply powers through the entire length of the river crossing. Luckily, there doesn’t seem to be a strong current in the river allowing the Nexon owner to attempt something like this. The compact SUV is seen reaching the other side with relative ease.
The Tata Nexon is offered with a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine making 120 hp and 170 Nm and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel making 110 hp and 260 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. There are options of a 6-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. The prices of the Nexon range between Rs 7.39 lakh and Rs 13.73 lakh, ex-showroom. The list of chief rivals includes the likes of Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra XUV300.
