There is no direct rival for the diesel-AMT version of the Tata Nexon. The EcoSport and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza do not offer this combination right now. However, the Mahindra TUV300 and NuvoSport come with AMT options for their diesel engines so they can be considered as rivals for the Nexon diesel AMT version.
