Tata Motors next most expected car, the Nexon will be launched soon. According to TBHP, Tata will start the service staff training from the second week of July. The sources also say that Tata will then start the dealership sales training for the upcoming vehicle. Nexon is officially expected to launch in August 2017.
The camouflaged, production version of the Nexon have reached many dealerships across the country. The production version looks much like the concept version of the vehicle with many styling elements borrowed from the concept. The Nexon gets a smiling front grille with swept back headlamps. The top end version of the model will have projector lamps and integrated LEDs. The round fog lamps are located in the bumper of the Nexon.
The Nexon gets flared wheel arches, a floating roof effect with blacked out C-Pillar and 5-spoke alloy wheels. At the rear, the Nexon houses a large blacked out area for the number plate and the tail lamp is a split-section layout.
The Nexon comes with a 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron petrol engine and a newly developed 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engine that is expected to be the most powerful engine in the segment. Both the engine will get a manual transmission and optional AMT.
The Nexon will be the fourth car from Tata after Tiago, Hexa and Tigor to launch under the new strategy to change the perception of the brand in the market. The Nexon will take on the rivals like Ford EcoSport and Maruti Vitara Brezza in the market. The Vitara Brezza is leading the segment with monthly sales of around 8-9k per month.
The Nexon has been spied multiple times testing on treacherous roads of Leh-Ladakh. The heavily camouflaged test mules have been spotted in the other parts of the country too. The Nexon will be Tata’s first sub-4 metre SUV in the market.
