Tata Motors are on track for launching Nexon, a compact SUV which is currently under testing on Indian terrains. The vehicle has been spotted testing several times and the production version is now ready, which means Tata is gearing up for a launch of this compact SUV.

Nexon first made an appearance in Auto Expo last year, where many automobile enthusiasts saw it in its camouflaged and naked forms. The Nexon will be competing with the Ford Ecosport 2017, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Mahindra TUV300.

The Nexon shall be priced somewhere between Rs 7.6 lakh to Rs 11.1 lakh (on-road). This shall be competing with other compact SUVs in its segment. Tata shall be offering it in both petrol and diesel engine options. The Tata Nexon will get all new interiors and a paradigm shift from the other Tata vehicles. There is a paradigm shift in the design as compared to other Tata vehicles.

The Nexon will be packed with a 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engine mated with six-speed manual transmission gearbox and a 1.2-litre turbocharged unit. Tata Nexon is expected to include features like a console with armrest, automatic climate control with rear AC vents and infotainment system with a dash-top touch screen equipped with voice command recognition. Other features include chrome 'Humanity Line', projector headlamps with daytime running lights (DRLs) and LED tail lamps.

Expected to be Tata's game changer, the Nexon has a lot riding on it.
