As previously reported, the Nexon, its name reportedly derived from Next-On, rates as the fourth model after the Hexa SUV, Tigor sedan and Tiago hatch to incorporate Tata's IMPACT design language, and will be offered in a choice of five trim levels and two engine options.
Depending on the spec, notable standard equipment includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen Harman infotainment system with Android Auto, Bluetooth and Tata's ConnectNext app suite, 16-inch alloy wheels, cooled glovebox, reverse camera and rear parking sensors, push-button start and a segment first multi-drive selector with three modes (Eco, Sport and City).
Underneath the bonnet, the Nexon will offer the choice of a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged Revotron petrol engine developing 81 kW and 170 Nm of torque, or a 1.5-litre Revotorq turbodiesel punching out 81 kW and 260 Nm. For now, only a six-speed manual gearbox will be available with a six-speed automated manual likely to arrive towards the end of the year.
At present, no plans are in place to bring the Nexon to South Africa.
