Tata has brought quite a lineup to the Bharat Mobility Expo 2024, and one of the star debuts is the Nexon CNG. It will not be the first sub-4m SUV to offer this fuel option, but the first in the country to offer it with a turbo-charged petrol engine. The Tata Nexon CNG also incorporates the twin-cylinder technology as seen on the likes of the Tata Tiago and Tata Punch.

Powertrain Details

The Nexon CNG is equipped with the SUV’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine which is usually rated at 120 PS and 170 Nm but expect reduced performance when running on the greener fuel. Like other Tata CNG cars, the Nexon CNG also features direct start in CNG mode. The Nexon CNG’s revised performance output, fuel efficiency, and transmission options are yet to be revealed.

Highly Equipped CNG SUV

We expect the Nexon CNG to be a feature-rich offering, similar to the regular Nexon, and will likely come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone charging, sunroof, and auto AC with touch controls. In terms of safety, the Nexon packs six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and a 360-degree camera.

Expected Launch And Price

We expect the Tata Nexon CNG to be introduced in the first half of 2024, with prices starting from Rs 9 lakh (ex-showroom). Its direct rivals will be the Maruti Brezza but it will also serve as a greener fuel option to the likes of the Kia SonetHyundai Venue, and the Maruti Fronx sub-4m crossover.
