Measuring 3,990mm in length, the Tata Nexon will be as spacious as most of its rivals including the Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra TUV300.

The production-ready version of Tata Nexon made its debut at the Auto Expo 2016, and it looks really close to the original concept that had made its debut at the last edition of the Delhi Motor Show. Set to launch sometime later this year, the Tata Nexon’s diesel model will feature an all-new 1.5-litre engine since the model displayed at the Expo came with that. This proves all the reports wrong that had claimed it to be coming with the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre multijet diesel unit.

The petrol model of the vehicle, on the other hand, could feature a 1.2 Revotron T petrol engine borrowed from the Zest. While the diesel engine is good for 108bhp and 260Nm, the petrol mill is good for 89bhp and 140Nm. The diesel-engined Nexon features a 6-speed manual gearbox. “The NEXON is a bold, elegant and sporty compact SUV which comes with dynamic, new generation best-in-class diesel and petrol engines.”, said the company.

Similar to the Zest and the Bolt, the Tata Nexon is also based on the X1 platform. The car’s front fascia looks slightly different than the concept with a new set of head-lights and bumper. The grille and other parts, however, look more or less similar to the concept.

Measuring 3,990mm in length, the Tata Nexon will be as spacious as most of its rivals including the Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra TUV300.
