  • Will be powered by the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine that makes 120 PS and 170 Nm.

  • Expected to get both manual and AMT options.

  • The CNG variants can come with a price premium of around Rs 1 lakh.

The facelifted Tata Nexon was launched last year with the same turbo-petrol and diesel engine options as the pre-facelift version. At the 2024 Bharat Mobility Expo, Tata showcased a CNG version of the subcompact SUV hinting at its imminent arrival. Recently, a camouflaged test mule of the Nexon was spotted, and it was likely the upcoming CNG version itself.
