The Tata Nexon AMT has been officially unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. The Nexon AMT was eagerly awaited by compact SUV enthusiasts who appreciated the Nexon’s styling and features but wanted an automatic gearbox option. Tata Motors is expected to price the Nexon AMT between Rs. 7.75-10 lakhs (ex-showroom) as per reports. The car will compete with rivals like the Ford EcoSport AT and Mahindra’s TUV300 AMT in the automatic compact SUV category.
The design and mechanicals are identical as the manual counterpart. The same front grille, projector headlamps, Feline-Eye DRLs, dual tone roof, sloping roofline and ceramic shoulder line are retained along with the 6.5 inch ConnectNext infotainment system, rear view camera, rear and front armrests, push-button start, keyless entry and sound system.
The AMT option will be available for both the diesel and petrol engines. The latter is the Revotron 1.2 litre mill that makes 110 PS and 170 Nm. The former is the Revotorq 1.5 litre engine that churns out 110 PS and 260 Nm. There is a 6-speed manual transmission unit as standard along with the AMT option.
