Tata Motors is going to launch the new Nexon compact-SUV very soon. The brand has now started its teaser campaigns to create a nice build up for the product ahead of the official launch. The Nexon when launched will rival the likes of Ford EcoSport & Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

Powering the Nexon will be turbocharged engines. The Revotron petrol will be a 1.2L block producing 110 HP of power @ 5,500 RPM and 170 Nm of torque @ 2,000 – 4,000 RPM. The Revotorq diesel is an all-new 1.5L block producing 110 HP of power @ 3,750 RPM and 260 Nm of torque @ 1,500 – 2,750 RPM. Both engines will get driving modes – Eco, City & Sport.

Tata will launch the Nexon matched only to a 6-speed manual gearbox on both engines. AMT could follow later.

The Nexon is probably the most styling product ever coming out of the Tata stable. Both the exterior and interior styling of this compact-SUV is a step up and surely should appeal to a younger urban audience which would be the primary target group.

Tata’s Impact design language is something masses have been appreciating with the Tiago, Tigor & the Hexa.

Expect a price tag ranging between INR 6 – 9 lakh.
