Recently the brand upgraded the Tata Nexon to BS6 emission standards and the new BS6 Nexon is powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged Revotron petrol engine that produces 120 ps of power and 170 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed manual transmission and an option of a 6-speed AMT gearbox. The new BS6 engine retains the power output but produces more torque than the BS4 version which made a peak torque of 110 Nm.
The Tata Nexon is also available with a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre turbocharged Revotorq diesel engine that produces 110 ps of power and 260 Nm of torque available in a 6-speed manual as well as a 6-speed AMT transmission. Both engines are available with three driving modes – Eco, City and Sport.
The Tata Nexon is positioned in the highly contested mid-size SUV segment and competes with the Hyundai Creta, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Seltos, Mahindra XUV300 and the Ford EcoSport.
