Tata Nexon Spotted In India Launch around Diwali 2017
After making its worldwide debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the Tata Nexon sub-compact SUV was yet again spotted testing in India. Still hidden in substantial camouflage, the upcoming Tata Nexon now looks almost production ready and is possibly in the last phase of testing. The car is projected to go on sale in India about coming Diwali this year but knowing Tata Motors, we might get a chance to drive the car before its official launch, so wait for that.
Now, we have already told you everything that we know about the all-new Tata Nexon. This is not the first time that the long awaited sub four meter SUV has been spotted testing in the country and by the looks of it, would not be the last either. In fact, we even saw a totally undisguised test mule last month after its Geneva debut and before that with some heavy camouflage too. The Tata Nexon has come a long way since we first saw that car in its idea model at the 2014 Auto Expo followed by the reveal of a near -production version at the 2016 Auto Expo.
The India-bound model will be widely similar to the car seen at Geneva and that is pretty evident from these spy images as well. While only the back portion of the car is visible here you can still make out those stylish LED tail lamps with the 3D component, the floating roof design, roof mounted spoiler and the bull-bar like element for the back bumper. This particular model seems to be one of the lower variants as it only gets steel wheels and alloys will be on offer for the higher options. There also plastic cladding for the wheel arches. Other features and styling bits include – chrome ‘Humanity Line’ on the upper grille with projector lamps as well as LED DRLs, LED fog lamps, two-tone paint job, roof rails and more. The cabin comes with convenience features like bottle and cup holders, multiple utility spaces, handbag hangers, iPad trays and laptop thus showing that Tata Motors is in with the age. There’s also automatic climate control with rear AC vents. Under the hood, the Nexon will receive a 1.5 liter Revotorq diesel engine mated to a 6 speed manual gear transmission. An AMT variant might also be on offer.
