Tata Nexon has been a hit in the market with its quirky design and SUV looks. There were many factors due to which the people really liked the Nexon. Some of the reasons were its features, great ground clearance, SUV looks, fit and finish, infotainment system and safety features. The sub 4-meter SUV segment has been very competitive in the Indian market still  Nexon was able to capture quite a fair part of the market. The SUV stance of the Nexon has been also enhanced with the help of some design tweaks to the front and the bonnet. Tata Nexon was the first model of the Indian manufacturer that received a five-star rating from the Global NCAP crash test. The design of the SUV has been updated and now follows IMPACT 2.0 design language from Tata. Tata Nexon is available in 5 variants, namely  XE, XM, XZ, XZ+ and XZ+(O) with AMT gearbox option available for the XM, XZ+ and XZ+(O) variants. Tata Nexon continues to get 1.2L Revotron petrol and 1.5L Revotorq diesel engines, but now they are BS6 compliant. Tata Nexon is available in 6 colours available are Flame Red, Foliage Green, Calgary White, Pure Silver, Daytona Grey and Tectonic Blue.





Tata Nexon adorns the company’s IMPACT 2.0 design language and the front of the Nexon has been redone which helps it to look even more muscular. The bonnet has been raised up and flattened while the front grille, now being more upright, which makes the Nexon look more like a full-size capable serious SUV.  The front Daytime-Running Lamps come with a new design and the projector sleek headlamps also comes with while flaunting LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). The SUV also gets fog lamps at the front as well as rear. There would be turn indicators at the piano black finished ORVMs, while it would be available in dual-tone paint scheme with a contrasting roof. The side profile also consists of 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, shark-fin antenna and roof rails. The A-pillar and C-pillar have been blacked out for floating roof design.  At the rear, you get horizontal “Y” shaped LED taillights The Nexon, accentuating the sportiness, also gets stylish roof rails and a rear defogger. The roof-line of the Nexon has been given a coupe-inspired look which enhances the side profile while keeping the SUV practicality. Nexon also features automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and follow me headlamps. In addition, a dual-tone variant with a black roof is on offer with Moroccan Blue & Vermont Red colours.



The interior cabin is finished in a three-tone theme. Inside the cabin, there are bucket seats at the front and 60:40 foldable cushion slip seat at the rear with adjustable head restraints. Other features include automatic climate control with rear air vents, all four power windows with auto-down with driver side, reverse parking sensors, reverse camera, front armrest with storage space, rear armrest with cupholders, 7-inch floating Harman ConnectNext infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The touchscreen infotainment system is connected to the 8-speaker sound system which is also sourced from Harman. Tata also offers a voice commands system that has been specially tuned to understand Indian accents and connected car features through an application on your mobile phone. Through the application, you can track your car, remotely control the various functions of the car, get an intrusion alert and get a live diagnostic report. The driver gets cruise control, smart key with push-button start/stop and a multi-function steering wheel. Premium touches include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome finish on the air vents, leather-wrapped gear knob and fabric insert on the door trims. The interior is quite practical with cup holders in every door, umbrella holders in the front doors, multi-utility glovebox and cooled and illuminated glove box. What’s new with a facelift is a digital instrument cluster with multi-information display and a flat-bottom steering wheel. The electric sunroof and dual-tone interior open up a sense of airiness in the cabin. Tata Nexon boot space is 350-litre, which can be increased up to 690-litre with a 60:40 rear split seat. Some of the unique features of that Nexon come with are a wearable key, Xpress Cool and voice alerts for door open, low fuel, seat belt reminder and much more.


Engine & Transmission

Tata Nexon specs come in both petrol and diesel fuel trims. The petrol variants are powered by a 1.2L 3-cylinder turbocharged Revotron engine which develops maximum power of 110PS @ 5000rpm and peak torque of 170Nm between 1750-4000rpm. On the other hand, the diesel variants get a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged Revotorq engine which belts out 110PS @ 3750rpm and 260Nm between 1500-2750rpm. Both the engines are linked to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT transmission with three drive modes: Eco, City and Sport. The engines are also now BS6 compliant, so that they emit less pollution than before.


 Braking and Safety

Tata Nexon comes packed with a plethora of safety features such as dual front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Program, Immobilizer and Seatbelt with pretensioners and load limiters as standard. The high-end variants also come with rear parking sensors and a reversing camera with dynamic guidelines, Front fog lamps with cornering assistance, rear fog lamps and speed-dependent auto door lock features. Moreover, Tata has loaded the SUV with Traction control, Rollover Mitigation, Emergency Brake Assist, Hill Hold Control, Electronic Brake Pre-fill and Brake Disc Wiping. All of these safety features enhance the safety quotient of the Nexon. It is also important to note that the Nexon was rated five stars in the Global NCAP crash test and also comes with Tyre Pressure Monitoring System that shows the current tyre pressure to the driver in the multi-information display.

Performance and Handling

The performance from the engines is quite linear as the torque has been spread pretty widely across the rev range. The diesel feels more powerful due to the healthy dose of torque that it comes with. The handling of the Nexon is quite good and predictable. The refined NVH levels further accentuate the driving pleasure. Tata Nexon ground clearance is 209mm which is more than enough to tackle potholes of our roads.


Tata Nexon petrol mileage delivers an ARAI-Specified fuel economy of 17kmpl, while the diesel returns an impressive 21.50kmpl. However, the mileage of the SUV depends on the driving conditions and driving habits of the driver. Tata Nexon fuel tank capacity is 44-litres.



The front doors have a slot to store umbrellas, but it’s difficult to use. The rear A/C vents help cool the cabin quicker and while boot space is fair, there should have been more storage bins in the cabin.

Touring ability and performance

The diesel engine is reasonably powerful and the gearing ensures both drivability and cruising ability is good. High speed stability is not bad, and though the 44 litre fuel tank capacity is the least in segment, the tall 6th gear ensures it has a range of about 750km.

Stage timing

4m 05.08s

The compact size and proportions encourage you to fling it around, making it fun to drive. But the Nexon does move around a lot and as a result of the constant corrections required, it’s the second slowest.


Seating and visibility

The high front seating, large windscreen and side windows with a slight downward slope provide a sizeable view, however, the thick A-pillars interfere with cornering vision.
The wipers have a decent sweep although the passenger side one is too short and placed at an angle that it makes it look clumsy while working. The somewhat narrow rear windscreen limits rearward visibility, particularly in the wet as the aft wiper is small, cleaning only a part of the windscreen. The broad C-pillars don’t help matters either.




With the safety features and build quality of Tata, Nexon proves its points with the competitors. It undercuts the rivals by some margin while offering a lot more bells and whistles. The Nexon offers many technological advancements too, and is aimed towards those who are looking for a compact SUV which looks like a proper full-size SUV.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Tata Nexon



When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    It is hard not to recommend the Nexon, especially after its comprehensive update. The stand-out exterior changes make it much more handsome, the cabin is still comfortable, there’s a long list of features. Apart from that, the potent diesel motor and well-sorted suspension definitely make this compact SUV very enticing.
