We test drove the new Tata Nexon earlier today. Here are the details from our drive experience in Kochi.


To be launched in the sub 4-meter segment, Tata Nexon compact SUV or “Osprey” (codename), entered production earlier this month. To be launched in September this year, the new compact SUV will take on the likes of new Maruti Suzuki Ignis.

New Tata Nexon has been designed on Tata Motors’s IMPACT design philosophy, on which Tiago and Tigor has been designed. To feature a 2+3 seating arrangement, Nexon will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options.

The Tata NEXON is a short form of “NEXT-ON” which signifies the inspiration of NEXON from next level of things.

Engine options on offer are – a 1.2 liter turbocharged Revotron petrol engine and a 1.5 liter diesel engine option. Tata has stated that – “the engines offer an unrivalled package of fuel efficiency, performance, and refinement.” Both these engines are best in its class.

The petrol engine 1.2 liter 3 cyl will deliver 110 PS @ 5000 rpm and 170 Nm @ 2000-4000 rpm while the 1.5 liter 4 cyl diesel will deliver 110 PS @ 3750 rpm and 260 Nm @ 1500-2750 rpm. Both engines will be mated to a 6 MT. Nothing has been revealed about the AMT Nexon yet.
