Here's a detailed ownership review of Tata Nexon. The owner has completed 15,000 km on the odo and shares all the pros and cons of the compact SUV.
Tata Nexon is one of the best-selling compact SUVs in the country. It is also the first Indian-made car that scored a 5-star safety rating at the Global NCAP testbed. It has recently received a mid-life update and that has further helped it in uplifting its overall appeal. However, if you are planning to get one home, a long-term ownership review should be considered. To ease out this task for you folks, we have got a video from the YouTube channel of Car Stories. In the video, the presenter can be seen describing the positive and negative attributes of his ownership experience of his Tata Nexon.
The owner explains that he bought the car for the safety standards that it offers. Also, he confirms that he has completed almost 16,000 kilometres on the odometer. He then talks about the pros of the Nexon. Starting with the car’s strong build quality he adds about the comfortable ride that Nexon offers. According to him, the car is decently loaded with tech as well, though he opted for the XM variant of the car, which sits on the lower end of the variant hierarchy. The music system is offered with Bluetooth connectivity and it boasts of the best sound output that the owner has ever heard with a company-fitted unit.
Also, the ground clearance is class-leading, which he is certainly happy about. He adds that with a full load, the car does not bottoms out or scrap its belly at tallest of the speed bumps. The car is fuel-efficient as well and he is receiving an appreciable mileage of 20 kmpl on highways and around 16-18 kmpl in city.
The owner has added OEM alloy wheels and painted the ORVMs and door handles in same shade as the car.
Talking of the cons, the owner adds that the car is susceptible to squeaks and various other noises. He says that the service centres have improved but the staff is unable to suppress these weird noises. We too agree with him on this note. The Nexon is quite a capable car with reliable engine options and spacious interiors, but quality control is a parameter where Tata cars lag behind. Furthermore, he says that the AMT is not the best in terms of shift as a jerk is felt during gearshifts. But, he says that this is something he has experienced in almost every other AMT-equipped car.
