The major changes between XZ+ (HS), XZ+ (L) and XZ+ (P) are for the infotainment system. The HS doesn’t get iRA Connectivity, live vehicle diagnosis, remote vehicle control via smartphone app, trip analytics, valet mode, vehicle live location and geo fence.
On the other hand, the ZXA+ (HS) doesn’t get an electric sunroof. It is available in the respective P and HS variants. Similarly, the XZA+ (HS) misses out on the ventilated seats and wireless charging. These are available on the L and P varirants.
This is not the first time that Tata has reworked the Nexon range. This could have been done due to supply-demand issue, market research or due to business reasons.
Despite this, the Nexon has a whooping 68 variants. These include 18 variants of the Nexon petrol manual, 19 of petrol automatic, 17 variants of the diesel manual and 14 variants of diesel automatic.
Powertrain of the Nexon
Tata has equipped the Nexon with a choice of diesel or petrol motors. These include a a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine which puts out 118 BHP and 170 Nm torque and a 1.5-litre diesel engine rated at 108 BHP and 260 Nm of peak torque.Both engines are offered with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automated manual transmission.
Apart from this, Tata Motors also offers the Nexon in two electric variants – the Nexon EV and the Nexon EV Max. The Nexon EV has the distinction of being the country’s highest-selling electric four-wheeler, with a market share of more than 50 per cent. All these factors make the Nexon SUV even more desirable for customers.
