The Nexon wants to be the next cool small SUV-coupe for the Indian market.
The Indian manufacturer struggled to make it as small as possible on the outside but packed with interesting interior amenities and enough room for five. Of course, you won’t be able to fit any elephant in it.
With a 4 meter length (13.1 ft) and 1.81-meter width (5.9 ft), the Tata Nexon can offer enough room for the crowded cities in India. Maybe it could do a good impression on some other European markets as well if it would be sold there.
The power comes from either a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine or a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel unit. While the first offers 120 HP, the other one is good for 110 HP. Both engine variants may be fitted with either a manual or an automatic transmission. Neither versions can be fitted with an AWD system, which makes this Nexon more like a crossover rather than a small SUV.
Inside we noticed a very special infotainment system, which allows the driver to enter into a “Tata owners” community, and share different hazards on the road or speed-traps, traffic jams and others. The manufacturer didn’t confirm or denied if the infotainment system can cope with Android Auto or CarPlay.
