Here's a short term ownership review of the BS-6 2020 Tata Nexon, where the owner showcases the real-world fuel economy of the compact-SUV.
Tata Nexon is one of the safest compact SUVs that are on sale in India. It has received a mid-life refresh early this year in January. With the update, the Nexon got itself a set of BS-6 compliant engines along with a major facelift job. The car now boats of a masculine front facet with sharper lines and sleeker headlamps. The rear, however, features minuscule changes in the form of revised glow-pattern for tail lamps and lower portion of the bumper. Indian audience loves the Nexon for the way it comes up as a jack of all trades and master of none. In case you feel we just exaggerated, here’s an ownership review we came across on YouTube that reveals something similar.
The video was uploaded on the YouTube channel of Believe Your Passion. In the video, it can be seen that host shares the experience of his first 100+ km drive in the top-spec XZ+ variant of his Nexon. It is the petrol-manual configuration and the owner claims that it has got enough punch to deal with city traffic and highway drives. He adds that second-gear feels a little low on power. But, he affirms that in Sports mode, the power delivery is better and is not a major concern.
Also, he focuses on the overall fuel economy of the car. In his complete trip of 140+ km, the car constantly delivers a fuel efficiency figure of more than 17 kmpl. The owner concludes his experience as a nice one as the Nexon packs enough punch with frugal nature. Also, he liked the high-set seating position in the Nexon as it gives a commanding view of the road.
The petrol variant of the Nexon uses a 1.2L 3-pot turbocharged engine that puts out 120 PS of peak power and 170 Nm of peak torque. It is offered with 2 transmission options – 6-speed MT and 6-speed AMT. The diesel engine on the Nexon, however, is a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged unit. It is designed to belt out a peak power and torque output of 110 PS and 260 Nm, respectively. The oil burner is also offered with the same gearbox options as its petrol counterpart.
