This week of May 2024 saw Tata expanding its Nexon lineup with new variants, while we got more of the upcoming Altroz Racer. Maruti launched a new mid-spec Fronx Delta Plus (O) variant and we got the global debut of the Kia EV6 facelift. There was action from the luxury segment as well with new variants of BMW and Porsche SUVs. Here’s a quick summary of the top news from this past week: 

Tata Nexon New Variants

Tata has introduced new base-spec Smart variants for the Nexon, including an even more affordable entry-level Smart (O) petrol at Rs 7.99 lakh. The Nexon’s diesel options now start from the Smart Plus variant at Rs 9.99 lakh. Safety includes 6 airbags, ESC, hill hold assist, and rear parking sensors. 

Tata Altroz Racer spied

Leaked documents revealed that the Tata Altroz Racer is set to launch in June 2024. Shortly after, we spotted the sportier variant of the Tata premium hatchback without any camouflage. It sports the same vibrant orange and black colour scheme with stripes seen at the 2023 Bharat Mobility Expo, along with cabin updates like a larger touchscreen infotainment unit.
