Tata Nexon BS-VI Version Spotted, Cruise Control Expected

  • Aug 02, 2019

Tata Motors was reportedly working to upgrade the Nexon subcompact sports utility vehicle (SUV) to meet the BS-VI emission norms and the car has now been spotted sans any camouflage. The latest pictures have revealed that the Nexon is likely to get a number of updated features.

The BS-VI Nexon’s cabin retains the same flat-bottom steering wheel to be seen in the upcoming Tata Altroz. The steering wheel’s right spoke has the cruise control buttons. Nexon was the only car in Tata’s portfolio which didn’t have the cruise control function.

The current version of the Nexon has a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, an 8-speaker sound system, multi-information display, climate control, power windows, steering mounted controls, and multiple drive modes. Its safety features comprise dual airbags, antilock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), driver and co-driver seatbelt warning, rear parking sensors with camera, and a high-speed alert.  

The Nexon is available in two engine options. The 1.2-litre petrol motor produces 170Nm peak torque and 110PS maximum power. The 1.5-litre diesel engine outputs 260Nm peak torque and 110PS maximum power. Both engines are paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox with automated manual transmission (AMT) available as an option.

Tata Motors reported losses of ₹3,679.66 crore for the April-June quarter which has doubled from the ₹1,862.57 crore during the same period last fiscal. The beleaguered Indian indigenous carmaker is trying hard to restore some pride in the face of mounting competition in the compact SUV segment particularly from Hyundai Venue and the Mahindra XUV300. Industry observers believe that introduction of the BS-VI engine and cruise control may help the Nexon to forge at least some traction in its segment.

The BS-VI Nexon, when launched, is expected to be pegged at a premium over its current entry-level price of ₹6.85 lakh (ex-showroom).
