Still imagining, how the Tata Nexon Dark Edition would look like? Stop right away, and take a look at this digital rendering.
Cars do look good in a black paint scheme. For some unknown reasons, manufacturers have now stopped offering one on their products. However, folks at Tata Motors thought of introducing the option of a black paint job, but in the form of a special trim, which they call as Dark Edition. The Harrieris their only car as of now, which is offered with an all-black paint scheme. But, Tata Motors has recently filed trademark registrations for Dark and Camo Editions of its different products. One of which is expected to be the Nexon. Before you folks start imagining how it would look like, here’s a digital rendering of the same created by our in-house design specialist – Shoeb R. Kalania.
It can be seen in the picture above that Nexon looks gorgeous in the Dark Edition avatar. Like the Harrier, it gets all the chrome bits replaced with piano black inserts. Also, the silver finish seen on the fog lamp housing is now replaced with a piano-black finish. The suit is followed for other elements as well like the roof rails, alloy wheels, scuff plates, and lower air dam. It also gets a ‘DARK’ emblem on the front fender.
If launched, Tata Nexon Dark Edition will attract a lot of buyers for its looks. Also, there’s isn’t another compact-SUV other than Sonet which offer the option of a black paint scheme. But Tata Motors will price it a little higher than the regular trims of the Nexon.
As of now, the price of Nexon start at Rs. 6.99 lakh for the entry-level XE trim and goes all the way up to Rs. 12.70 lakh for the XZA+ Optional trim with the dual-tone paint job. Talking of the powertrain, Tata Nexon can be had with either a 1.2L turbo-petrol motor or a 1.5L turbo-diesel engine. The petrol engine is designed to push out a rated power and torque output of 120 PS and 170 Nm, respectively. However, the diesel engine can generate a peak power output of 110 PS and max torque of 260 Nm. The gearbox options on the Nexon include a 6-speed MT and 6-speed AMT.
