Tata Motors is back in the SUV game with the launch of Nexon in the country. Introduced in September 2017, Nexon marks Tata’s entry in the highly lucrative sub 4 meter SUV segment. Tata Nexon is the latest product which is based on company’s new HorizoNext philosophy. The car was first showcased in the concept form at the 2014 Auto Expo while its production version came in daylight in 2016 Auto Expo. With brand new engines, SUV cum crossover styling and loaded with features, Nexon is an enthusiastic attempt to carry away the customers from the rivals.

The eccentric design is very eye catchy. Looking straight at the Nexon’s facade one will surely get the clue of Tata’s IMPACT design. The wide radiator grille, muscular arches and effective use of chrome on the front makes the car look wider. Other elements that add to its aura are projector headlamps with LED DRLs, large front air intake, high-set fog lamps and flared wheel arches. In general, Nexon looks part –SUV, part-coupe, fully distinctive and its design is more aggressive as compared to its siblings.

Inside the cabin, Tata Nexon’s interior has three noticeable layers. Where the upper part is done in dark grey plastic, the middle layer is finished in aluminium that looks predominantly high-class. The third and the bottommost portion are plastic with shades of beige. Overall the inner looks are quite contemporary and provide the cabin a premium ambience. Another thing that catches the eyes is the all new floating 6.5-inch centre touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto along with multiple drive modes and 8 speakers sound system. Other comfy features inside the car include automatic climate control and rear AC vents. For better safety, you will get features like ABS and EBD along with dual airbags. It also issues voice warnings and reminders for low fuel and seat belts.

Tata Nexon is available in five different trims. The engine option on Nexon includes 1.2L turbocharged petrol mill that can produce the power output of 110PS and yields the peak torque of 170Nm. The 1.5L diesel oil burner can generate the output of 110PS and torque of 260Nm. Both the engines come mated to six speed manual transmission. Tata claims Nexon petrol version can deliver 17kmpl while the diesel one can return 21kmpl which is satisfactory given the dynamics of the vehicle.

Talking about the price, Tata Nexon base variant gets the price tag of Rs. 5.99 lakh while the top end variant goes up to Rs. 9.62 lakh. Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport are its two major rivals with Mahindra KUV100 and Mahindra NuvoSport also competing in the space.


Tata Motor’s new Nexon has an inviting inner cabin that feels and looks modern with dark grey plastic and beige theme. Various other elements such as plush upholstery as well as knitted roofline make appearance premium. Tata Nexon borrows the same simple dials from Tigor but one thing that stands out and catches the attention is the floating 6.5-inch touchscreen unit placed atop the dashboard that is crisp and easily readable. The infotainment is paired to 8-speaker Harman surround sound system while there is support for Android Auto and Bluetooth as well.
Smart dash is not drastic in terms of design, it is built with high-grade plastic of various textures providing it a great effect. The center console also houses AC vents and automatic climate control knobs besides giving room for USB and Aux-In. Another talking point of the car is the state-of-the-art twin-pod instrument cluster with an LCD screen at the center. The car also comes with another standout feature in the form of three driving modes; Eco, City, and Sport meant to offer better drivability on and off-road.
Tata Nexon driving experience is quite nice, seats are large and very comfortable, and the seating angle is such that it sets into comfort mode automatically. The 12-way adjustable driving position with memory settings makes it easy for various drivers to keep their preferred settings on the go. The steering wheel is carried over from Zest which is nice to hold with a small diameter and of course, it’s multi-functional. Tata Nexon is the only car in the sub-4m SUV that comes with rear air vents. Other features included in the long list of gadgetry are engine start-stop button, reverse parking sensors, and keyless entry.


Tata Nexon is the first ever compact SUV by the Tata Motor’s and that makes it the most important in its model line-up. The new Nexon is built on the Tata’s X1 platform that was earlier seen to form the base of Bolt, Vista, and Zest. The front façade gets wide radiator grille along with chrome and muscular arches giving the car a wider look. Rich coat of silver on the higher part of the body will definitely catch the attention. Other elements that improve its bold looks are high-set fog lamps, projector headlamps along with LED DRLs, flared wheel arches and large air intake.
Tata Nexon seems SUV-ish from the front while its rear part looks like a hatchback. Bumper at the back and faux skid plate add to its ruggedness. Glossy black and off-white elements around the tail-lamps supplements quirkiness to the looks but with the time one gets used to it. Tata has worked a lot on the car, rather than providing it with conventional squared-off SUV looks. It has been mixed with elements like heavily ranked windshield at the front, sloping coupe-like roofline and short bonnet along with many quirky touches. All these traits make the car stand out among others.

Mileage Running Cost

Both the diesel and petrol engines are engineered to deliver better fuel economy. Where diesel variant offers ARAI certified mileage figures of 21.5kmpl, the petrol variant, on the other hand, returns 17.0kmpl of mileage.

Comfort Suspension

The Nexon encounters the pothole just like using rubber foam. The suspension in the car smothers every obstacle that comes in its way. Its fine-tuned suspension better ensures that the vehicle offers an extraordinary mixture of driving dynamics, passenger comfort, and stability on most terrains.

Engine Performance

Tata Nexon sources its power from 1.2L turbocharged petrol mill and a 1.5L diesel engine. The petrol oil burner is the exact turbocharged version of Tigor’s line-up while the diesel powertrain is completely new one. The petrol engine can churn the power output of 110PS and delivers the peak torque of 170Nm. The diesel engine makes 110PS of power and 260Nm of maximum torque. Both the engines come mated to 6-speed gearboxes. The automatic variant is currently in the pipeline that will add more to the overall packaging.

Braking Safety

Tata Motor’s Nexon comes equipped with omnipresent front disc and rear drum braking hardware. The brakes come fitted with ABS with EBD. Dual front airbags, ISOFIX child seat and ABS are standard across the range. Other safety aspects include Central Locking, Engine immobilizer and power door lock.
