Tata’s upcoming compact SUV, Nexon was spotted for the first time in India. It is expected to be launched in India at the end of 2016. However, Tata is planning to showcase the production version of it at the 2016 Auto Expo in February.
Even though the whole vehicle has been camouflaged, the position of the front grille, headlights and fog lamps remain the same as the Nexon concept, displayed in 2014 Auto Expo.
There are many reports that Tata will offer Nexon in 5+2 seating configuration. Tata may offer jump seats similar to the one in Quanto & recently launched TUV300. However,by looking at these spy shots we doubt the possibility of the same.
Based on Tata Vista’s X1 platform, it is expected to come with two engine options. The petrol one is all new three cylinder 1.2-Litre Revetron engine, which will debut with the Zica hatchback. The diesel engine will be the tried and tested Fiat sourced 1.3 Litre engine.
Tata Nexon is a part of Tata’s strategy of launching new new products every year. With new products like Zica hatchback & sedan, Nexon and Hexa, the next year is an important one for Tata.
