August 08, 2017: Unofficial bookings for the Tata Nexon are underway with a refundable amount of Rs 11,000. While the car's official website has gone live, Tata Motors is also expected to officially commence the bookings in a few days time. The Nexon launch is most likely to happen either this month or next month. Watch Tata Nexon video review to find out how it is to drive.

The Tata Nexon is Tata Motors’ first attempt at cracking the sub-4 metre compact SUV segment, where it faces established rivals like the Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. Expected to be launched in a price range of Rs 6.5-9.5 lakh, it is available with two turbocharged engines.

The Tata Nexon petrol is powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron petrol motor (110PS/170Nm), while the diesel uses a new 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel mill (110PS/260Nm). Both the engines will be mated to a brand new 6-speed manual gearbox, while a 6-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) will be introduced at a later stage (by or before April 2018). As of now, Tata Motors has not revealed the mileage figures for either version of the Tata Nexon. The Tata Nexon comes with front-wheel drive only and an all-wheel drive variant is unlikely to be introduced.

Length x width x height x wheelbase dimensions come in at 3,994mm x 1,811mm x 1,607mm x 2,498mm, while the unladen ground clearance is rated at 209mm. It has a fuel tank capacity of 44-litres, while the boot space comes in at a healthy 350-litres (expandable to 690L with the 60:40 split rear seatback folded down).

Apart from a unique styling package, the Tata Nexon also comes equipped with an expansive list of features. To begin with, it gets dual front airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and ABS with EBD and CSC (corner stability control) as standard, which is a great move by Tata Motors. Further, it offers goodies such as a 6.5-inch ‘ConnectNext’ HD touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and multiple driving modes (Eco, City and Sport). It also gets features such as projector headlamps with daytime running lights, an 8-speaker sound system (4 speakers +4 tweeters) and automatic climate control with rear AC vents.

Tata Nexon review

The Tata Nexon is the latest entrant in the highly popular sub-compact SUV segment. It is Tata’s first attempt in this space and going by the way it looks, it’s not your conventional small SUV. The sub-4m SUVs that the Nexon competes with are aggressively priced, and pack in more practicality compared to the average premium hatchback. So, the Nexon has to deliver on at least these counts to excel.

The Nexon’s distinctive design sits a platform that also underpins the Bolt and Zest, and that’s not a bad thing. But, there’s lots that debuts with the Nexon including a new 1.5-litre diesel engine and a turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol. Like we have come to expect from modern Tata cars, the Nexon is also packed with a lengthy feature list. Does it all add up to a package that can rival the established players in the segment? More importantly, can the Nexon crack the sub-compact SUV segment in the first go? Let’s find out.

Things We Like in Nexon

  • Refined diesel engine which is lively at low revs
  • Dynamics – ride is comfortable without any compromise on handling
  • Interior design, layout and space utilisation
  • Drive modes that change the character of the engine

Things We Don't Like in Nexon

  • Fit and finish of some interior plastics
  • Design of gear knob
  • Petrol engine sluggish at low revs
  • Access to USB and Aux ports in the center dashboard panel, and cupholders in the running center console

Stand Out Features

  • Drive modes effectively change the engine-transmission character, and all modes (Eco, City and Sport) are good at what they do

  • Activity key is like a fitness band that works like a key. You can wear it and you won't require the actual key to lock/unlock or even start the car

  • Dashboard mounted touchscreen infotainment system that looks like a popup unit is first-in-segment and looks upmarket

  • Umbrella holders in both the front doors will come in handy for those who mostly remain outdoors. Not to forget to get an umbrella that fits there

CarDekho Verdict

The Nexon’s loud styling might not appeal to all, but will definitely click with those looking for something hatke. The feature list is on par with its immediate rivals, and there are clever touches (like the umbrella holder and the activity key) that make it stand out. Add to the mix the torquey diesel engine, and the generous cabin/boot space, and Tata does look like it’s on to something here.

"The Nexon’s loud styling might not appeal to all, but will definitely click with those looking for something hatke."

Yes, quality control could’ve been slightly better and the petrol motor could’ve been a notch more responsive. That said, neither of these are reasons to rule the Nexon out completely. At an expected price tag of Rs 6 lakh to Rs 9 lakh, it does spell trouble for the contenders in the sub-4-metre SUV space.
