Tata Nexon has become increasingly popular these days. Last month, Tata Nexon has recorded a 75 per cent year-on-year sales growth.
Tata Nexon was the first Indian-made vehicle to receive full star rating at the Global NCAP crash testing, which has positively impacted the customers’ demand. Earlier this year, Tata Motors launched the mid-life facelift version of the SUV. These developments together have contributed greatly to the increasing popularity of this sub-compact SUV. According to the last month’s sales report, Tata Nexon has registered a substantial year-on-year sales growth of 75 per cent.
To be specific, in November, Tata has retailed 6,021 units of Tata Nexon against 3,437 units sold in the same month last year. This surge in sales has gained Tata Nexon the fourth position in its segment. However, in October, the sales of the Nexon stood at 6,888 units, which is 11 per cent higher than last month’s number.
Exterior-wise, the facelifted Tata Nexon adorns a completely new front face with a new glossy black grille, clamshell bonnet, updated foglight housing and a revised front bumper with tri-arrow elements. Changes for the side profile and rear-end are minimal. The facelift version came along with a host of new updates, including electric sunroof, auto projector headlights, raining sensing wipers, cruise control, digital instrument cluster and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Moreover, features like electronic stability program and traction control, hill start assist as well as brake disc wiping are now offered as standard across the range. Other standard features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and rear parking sensor.
Tata Nexon is currently available with two choices of engines, 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron turbo petrol engine and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder Revotorq diesel engine. While the former is capable of making 120 PS power and 170 Nm, the diesel engine is good for 110 PS and 260 Nm. Both engines receive a standard 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional 6-speed AMT option.
