Tata Motors showcased the new Nexon, a sub-compact SUV, at the 2016 Auto Expo. A fresh image of the Tata Nexon has been spied by IndianAutosBlog, revealing the rear of the car. Although, the car is completely camouflaged, but according to the spied image, the upcoming car gets a new LED U-shaped tail lamps and LED lamps for the registration plate.

The image also suggests that the triangular brake lights located in the tail lamp cluster will get regular bulbs. Tata will also equip the compact SUV with features such as projector headlamps with daytime running lamps, gloss black front grille, front fog lamps, contrast colour for the roof, ceramic side finisher and 16-inch alloy wheels. In terms of equipment, the Nexon will feature a touchscreen Harman infotainment system with navigation and Bluetooth connectivity, steering mounted controls, automatic climate control and keyless entry. These features are likely to be available in the higher versions.

The Nexon will be based on the Tata's 'IMPACT' design language and will be powered by both, petrol and diesel engines. The company has not revealed the powertrain options, but we expected the car to get the Tiago's 1.2-litre Revtron three-cylinder petrol and 1.5-litre common-rail turbocharged diesel. Both engines are likely to be paired to a 5-speed manual transmission, however, a few petrol variants should come with an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission). The Tata Nexon is expected to reach showrooms in India by 2017 with a price range from between Rs 6.5 lakh to Rs 8 lakh, ex-showroom. That said, like the Tiago's aggressive price tag, the Nexon is expected to undercut the most value-for-money products in its segment.
