The TATA Nexon is the first automobile in India to set safety standards.

Tata Nexon: Revolutionizing the Small SUV Market
The Tata Nexon has emerged as a major player in the compact SUV market, setting new benchmarks for style, performance, and safety. Since its launch, it has always been a favorite with Indian consumers because of its bold look, robust features, and excellent pricing. This comprehensive review will examine all the ways that the Tata Nexon differs from other vehicles in its class.

The Tata Nexon boasts a striking design that combines useful functionality with a modern aesthetic. It features a muscular front fascia, a coupe-like roofline, and a powerful posture. The LED DRLs, compact projector headlights, and the recognizable Humanity Line on the front grille combine to give it a distinctive design. With a sculpted tailgate, LED tail lights, and a high ground clearance that solidifies its SUV credentials, the Nexon’s rear is as striking.

Since 2017, the Nexon subcompact crossover SUV has been produced by Indian automaker Tata Motors. It competes in India’s sub-4 meter crossover SUV market and is the brand’s first crossover SUV. A Nexon prototype was shown off during the 2014 Auto Expo. In February 2016, the completed model was unveiled.

The Nexon is constructed on the upgraded Tata X1 platform, which debuted in 1998 with the Indica model and was subsequently adopted by other cars with Indian names. It has an independent MacPherson dual-path strut with coil spring front suspensions and a rear twist-beam with a coil spring and shock absorber. The length of the wheelbase is 2,498 mm (98.3 in). Its distinctive characteristics are the twin halogen headlights with projector low beams and the large chrome bands down the side. Two-tone paint is also seen.

The Austrian engineering firm AVL and Tata Motors collaborated to create the 1.2 L Revotron three-cylinder turbo 12-valve petrol engine, which generates 81 kW (109 horsepower, 110 PS) and 170 N⋅m (125 lbf-ft) of maximum torque. A 6-speed manual or 6-speed automated manual gearbox (AMT) is attached to it. The four-cylinder, common rail, 16-valve 1.5 L Revotorq diesel engine generates a maximum torque of 260 N⋅m (192 lbf-ft) and 81 kW (109 horsepower, 110 PS). It is connected to either a six-speed automatic manual transmission (AMT) or a six-speed manual gearbox. The Tata Nexon is offered with eight different manual transmission options: XE, XM, XMS, XM+S, XZ+, XZ+ LUX, and XZ+LUXS (XZ & XZ(O).Each of these

Older modules are no longer available. The Nexon is available in three limited editions: Dark, Red Dark, and Kaziranga. All variants of the Nexon in AMT are available, with the exception of XE, which additionally has an extra “A” (XZA+, XMA). There are three driving modes on the car: City, Sports, and Eco. In 2018, Tata unveiled a sunroof option.

Nexon 2017 Top model

Production at the FCA India Ranjangaon facility started in July 2017 in accordance with the provisions of a joint venture agreement, and sales in India started in September of the same year. As of December 2018, Tata Motors had not exported the car outside of India. The company hasn’t confirmed if the car would be transported to Europe either. The factory released its fifty thousandth Nexon in August 2018.

Putting it another way, Tata Motors used to sell between 3,000 and 4,000 automobiles a year, but once the Nexon was released, that amount increased by 10 times. This illustrates how well the Tata Nexon has sold in the Indian market.

Global NCAP carried out the Nexon’s first crash test in August 2018. Four stars were awarded to the car for protecting adult occupants and three stars for the safety of young occupants.
Beginning on December 7, 2018, Tata made the front passenger seatbelt reminder a standard fitment for manufacture. Additionally, Tata provided knee mapping data to have some penalties waived. Then, in order to receive the highest possible five-star certification for adult protection, they funded a reevaluation that included an assessment of the extra seatbelt reminder and the basic side impact test required by ECE Regulation 95.

In December 2018, the testing team gave the Nexon, a car that is similar to the Latin NCAP 2013 model, the maximum five-star grade for adult protection. This model was the first to be launched in India. In 2024, the Nexon had a makeover and obtained five stars for both adult and child safety, as per the modified evaluation standards of Global NCAP. More typical safety features including iSize compatibility, side and curtain airbags, electronic stability control, a three-point seatbelt in the back center seat, and seatbelt reminders for every seat were incorporated.

Nexon’s success, Tata Motors unveiled the initial prototype of the Nexon facelift in 2020. Tata Motors debuted the revamped Nexon in January 2020. It boasts new features and engines that abide by Bharat Stage 6 standards. The car was on exhibit for the general public to see during the 2020 Auto Expo. The Nexon has undergone significant exterior alterations and is currently built using the Impact 2.0 design language. The new vehicle is equipped with two engines: a 1.5-liter Bharat Stage 6 compliant turbocharged Revotorq diesel engine that generates 81 kW (109 hp 110 PS) and a 1.2-liter turbocharged Revotron petrol engine that generates 88 kW (118 hp 120 PS).

2.TATA NEXON 2023 Model


Sales of the Tata Nexon started to go close to 10,000 units per month after the car’s original makeover. In the crossover SUV class, Nexon is now ranked second in the Indian car sector. September 1, 2023 marked the premiere of Nexon’s second redesign. Its larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, two-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated Tata emblem, and redesigned rear end with a full-width LED light bar are among its new features. The Tata Curve idea served as inspiration for the front fascia. The Nexon facial also came with an electronic gear shifter, an air purifier, heated front seats, telematics, wireless charging, a 10.25-inch full-digital dashboard display, and six standard airbags.

The electric version of the Nexon was released to the public on December 19, 2019. Parts for the Nexon EV are supplied by Tata Motors’ Ziptron series of electric vehicle technologies. The electric motor produces 94.7 kW (127 horsepower, 129 PS), 245 Nm (181 lbf-ft) of torque, and 0 to 100 in less than 9.9 seconds. With the top model, the HP rises to 167. Its 30.2 kWh battery allows it to have an ARAI-rated range of up to 312 km (194 miles).

In less than eight hours, the battery can be fully charged using a 7.2 kW charger (available from Tata Motors). You may also use a 15 amp power wire to charge it anyplace there is a power outlet. With DC 25 kW quick charging, the battery can be charged from 0% to 80% in approximately one hour. Tata launched their Nexon EV subscription service in August 2020. The Nexon EV reportedly sold the most electric cars in India in 2020.
To distinguish it from the longer-range Nexon EV Max model, Tata Motors changed the base Nexon EV to Nexon EV Prime in July 2022. The Nexon Ev Prime now has four-stage regen braking, iTPMS, and cruise control.

The Tata Nexon EV facelift was unveiled on September 7, 2023. The front fascia revamp was influenced by the Tata Curve EV prototype. A wireless charging pad, two Type-C ports that charge quickly, a bigger 12.3-inch touchscreen, and three driving modes that can be selected from the center console are among the other new features.
The grades for the Nexon makeover are Creative+, Fearless, Fearless+, Fearless+ (S), Empowered, Fearless (LR), Fearless+ (LR), Fearless+ (S) (LR), and Empowered (LR). The ‘+’ denotes optional packages, the (S) denotes sunroof options, and the (LR) denotes long-range options.
