Take a look at these images and videos, where the Tata Nexon can be seen proving its mettle in sub-zero temperatures and snow-covered roads.
Tata Nexon is one of the best-selling cars of the Indian carmaker. It is highly-loved for the way it looks, space it offers on the inside, and the features it comes packed with. The Nexon owners are often seen sharing pictures and videos of their car doing some crazy stuff and testing its capabilities. Although it is an FWD car, we’ve seen clips where the Nexon is making its way through dunes without much of an issue and crossing rivers with ease. However, pictures and videos of the Nexon proving its mettle in the snowy terrains are still a tough sight. But not anymore, as we recently came across a set of pictures and a video, where the Tata Nexon is chilling and excelling in sub-zero temperature regions.
In the above images, the Nexon facelift can be seen covered with snow. These images were shared by Santanu Das. He claims that the temperature when the pictures were clicked was -7 degree centigrade. While we are not aware of the place, the landscape is completely covered in snow. Given our prior experience of driving on snowy and icy roads, we can tell that it is actually tough.
Moving over to the video shared below, a pre-facelift example of the Nexon can be seen here. It is the top-spec trim of the car. Like the above images, the road in this video is covered in deep snow. The Nexon, however, makes its way through it with some wheel spin.
In case you are wondering that how can an FWD car perform in such a situation, it is the traction control system of the Nexon that helps it in doing so. The Nexon comes standard with traction control, which is capable of cutting the power in case it detects a wheel spin, hence providing increased traction to the vehicle. However, it isn’t advisable to go on expeditions in an FWD car, irrespective of how capable its traction control system is. A ladder-frame 4x4 vehicle should always be prioritized for such terrains because if the front wheels of a 4x4 vehicle get stuck, its rear wheels can get it out of the situation which isn’t possible in an FWD car.
