Tata Nexon Review Price

Tata Nexon Overview

Tata Nexon was first showcased at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo and no one believed the concept being showcased will hit the street without any changes being made to the design. This is what we believe to be the highlight of Tata Nexon. It is a real life compact SUV that features looks of a concept car, but is the attraction only skin deep? Let’s find out!

Tata Nexon Price List

Even though this is not a comparison, we can’t help but notice Tata’s consideration for the masses as Nexon was introduced with both petrol and diesel variant. This in comparison to Maruti’s decision of offering Vitara Brezza only in diesel options seems like a noble gesture by Tata which accommodates and bestows liberty to the common man.

Even the diesel offerings of Tata Nexon undercut the price tag of Vitara Brezza.

Variant  Price (Ex-showroom, New delhi)
1.2 Revotron XE (Petrol) Rs. 5.85 lakh
1.2 Revotron XM (Petrol) Rs. 6.5 lakh
 1.2 Revotron XT (Petrol)  Rs. 7.3 lakh
 1.2 Revotron XZ Plus (Petrol)  Rs. 8.45 lakh
 1.2 Revotron X (Petrol)  Rs. 8.6 lakh
 1.5 Revotorq XE (Diesel)  Rs. 6.85 lakh
 1.5 Revotorq XM (Diesel)  Rs. 7.4 lakh
1.5 Revotorq XT (Diesel) Rs. 8.15 lakh
1.5 Revotorq XZ Plus (Diesel) Rs. 9.3 lakh
1.5 Revotorq XZ Plus Dual (Diesel) Rs. 9.45 lakh

As we mentioned above the design of Tata Nexon is simply striking to say the least. Some critics have proclaimed it to be an overgrown version of Tata Bolt but we beg to differ. The floationg roofline, projector headlamps (available on higher-end models), DRLs, dual-tone paint scheme and much more, doesn’t only make Nexon seem sporty, but in many ways, also funky.

Tata Nexon Dimensions

One of the most vital stat while evaluating a SUV, be it compact or otherwise, is the ground clearance and at 209 mm Nexon manages to blow the competition out of the water. Another impressive stat about Tata Nexon happens to be its boot space which at 350 litres is much more impressive than that of its arch-rival the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

Dimensions Tata Nexon
Length 3994 mm
Width 1811 mm
Height 1607 mm
Wheelbase 2498 mm
Ground clearance 209 mm
Boot space 350 litres
Fuel tank capacity 44 litres

Step inside the car and Nexon doesn’t disappoint. The driver’s side seat is height adjustable and the car also comes with height adjustable seat bealts. In the rear you get 60: 40 split seats and rear A/c vents with airflow controls which are not offered in Vitara Brezza. Rear passengers also get rear charging ports and 34 storage pocket to tuck away your knickknacks.

Tata Nexon Engine and Specifications

The only letdown in terms of its powertrain and transmission layout is the absence of an automatic or even a CVT transmission. Other than that the 6-speed transmission in Tata Nexon takes on its duties really well and at 108.5 bhp peak power out in both petrol and diesel varints, the 1.2-litre Revotron and 1.5-litre Revotorq mills are quite impressive. Even though the petrol powerplant isn’t as powerful as the 110 bhp unit in Renault Duster or the 121.36 bhp unit in Ford Ecosport, there is still ample power to go around.

In comparison to Vitara Brezza’s 88.5 bhp, Nexon’s power output is not only superior but also quite impressive, in both petrol and diesel avatars.

Lastly with torque stats of 260 Nm, which happens to be the best in the segment, we expect Nexon to become really popular quite soon.

Engine Revotron (Petrol) Revotorq (Diesel)
Type 1.2L 1.5L
Displacement 1198 cc 1497 cc
Power 108.5 bhp 108.5 bhp
Torque 170 Nm 260 Nm
Transmission 6-speed Manual 6- Speed Manual

Tata Nexon Fuel economy

Tata Nexon’s fuel economy is rather inferior to those offered by the likes of Ford EcoSport or Vitara Brezza.

Variant Petrol Diesel
Fuel economy 14.03 kmpl 16.8 kmpl
