Tata Motors Launches Limited Edition Nexon Kraz

  • Sep 10, 2019

Tata Motors has launched two special edition trims of the Nexon compact sports utility vehicle (SUV), the Kraz standard and Kraz+, with prices ranging from ₹7.57-₹8.18 lakh and ₹8.48-₹9.18 lakh for the petrol and diesel versions respectively. The company, in a statement, said that the two new versions have been introduced to celebrate Nexon’s 1 lakh sales milestone.

The Nexon Kraz, however, has been launched for the second time. The 2018 edition of the vehicle had lime-green highlights.

The Kraz has been positioned between the Nexon’s XM and XT trims. It gets minor cosmetic updates both outside and inside to differentiate the car from its brethren.

The Nexon Kraz and Kraz+, on the outside, have a dual-tone black colour scheme with silver roof. The alloy wheels, wing mirrors, and the front grille get a bright tangerine orange shade. The same shade can be seen on the Kraz’s dashboard and central console, while the doors get a piano black treatment. The Nexon Kraz+ gets an appropriate badge on the car’s central console.

Both the Kraz and Kraz+ share the powertrain of the standard Nexon. The diesel version is hauled by a 1,497cc motor which produces 108.5bhp at 3,750rpm and 260Nm peak torque at 1,500-2,750rpm. The 1,198cc petrol motor, on the other hand, outputs 108.5bhp at 5,000rpm and 170Nm peak torque at 1,750-4,000rpm. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox with a 6-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) available as an option.

The Kraz is based on the Nexon XM trim which has a four-speaker infotainment system with Bluetooth support and steering-mounted audio controls. Other features include a 12V outlet, power-folding wing mirrors, and follow-me-home headlamps.

The Nexon rivals the Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and the Ford EcoSport in its class. Tata has already begun testing a mid-cycle upgraded version of Nexon, which is expected to debut next year.
