Only recently we came to know that Tata Motors is all set to introduce the new Nexon compact SUV in India before Diwali 2017. The production spec of the Compact SUV was also showcased recently at 2017, Geneva Motor show. However, Carwale was able to click some undisguised pictures of what looks like the production spec of the Nexon compact SUV recently.
The sub-4 meter SUV will compete directly with the likes of the Toyota Etios Cross, Fiat Avventura Cross and the soon to be launched Honda WR-V Crossovers when it finally launches here. According to the reports, Tata Motors will price the new compact SUV aggressively.
The undisguised car which was spotted looked identical to the Nexon show car showcased recently at the 2017 Geneva Motor show. Towards the front profile, the compact SUV features a large honeycomb mesh grille with the Tata Motor logo at the centre. The headlamp unit looks quite similar to the ones found in the concept car showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo in New Delhi. While the lower trims will get halogen lamps, the top end trim will receive projector units. Expect the front headlamp unit also to integrate LED daytime running lights as well. The front profile also gets aggressive looking bumpers which also houses round shaped fog lamps as well.
The side profile gives you an idea of the size of the vehicle. The side profile features five spoke alloy wheels, roof rails and also a roof-mounted antenna at the rear portion of the roof. The rear profile is not revealed in these images but expects it to feature an LED taillamps and a sporty looking bumper to go with the overall dynamic design of the SUV.
Although the interior of this car is not visible but recently released pictures from the Geneva Motor show clearly gives us an idea that the interior will feature a freestanding touchscreen infotainment system on top of the dash, a newly designed twin pod instrument cluster, fabricated seats, etc.
Powering the Nexon compact SUV will be a 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron engine which also powers the Bolt hatchback, while the diesel variant will get an all new 1.5 Litre Turbocharged four-cylinder unit. The diesel model will be paired to the six-speed manual transmission while the petrol variant, on the other hand, will get the 5-speed manual transmission. The petrol variant will perhaps also get an AMT transmission as well at a later stage.
