Tata Nexon has risen to become the best seller car by the car manufacturer and the car maker is now set to display the next variant of the car, the Nexon AMT at the Auto Expo 2018. The car is due for a launch next month and will go up against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. One can expect the price to range between Rs 7 to 10 lakh
The car is expected to have the same features as that of the standard Nexon with the only addition being the AMT gearbox along with newer hues like orange and silver dual tone. The additional AMT gearbox has resulted in a slight inside in weight of the car for both diesel and petrol variants. The rivals however don’t enjoy this luxury of AMT in both fuel variants. Currently the AMT will be made available only for the high end trims of XZA+ and XZ+ but one can expect the same for mid variants like XTA soon.
The car is fitted with a 1.5-litre turbo diesel with the output of 11bhp at 4,000rpm and torque of 200Nm at 1,750-3,000rpm. The Nexon also comes in variants powered by petrol which will be supplied from the 1.2-litre motor with 90bhp power at 5,000rpm along with 140Nm torque at 1,500-4,000rpm. The cabin of the Nexon is striking and stylish. The car gets features like LED daytime running lights, rear ac vents, 16-inch alloy wheels shod in 215/60 tyres, power-operated ORVMs, projector headlamps, front fog lamps, engine start-stop button, reverse parking sensors, automatic climate control, steering mounted audio controls, two 12-V power sockets, driver armrest, rear centre armrest with cup holders, 60:40 split folding rear seats, 6.5-inch floating Harman touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto which makes it a hit among buyers.
