Exactly. I agree with you CrazyDriver.
Bashing TATA here does not take away the sales and the segment first wrist band does not set the sales chart on fire too .
People do consider a lot before going for a new vehicle. They might even consider the points which were not even discussed here.

The more I read about Nexon, more I feel it is targeted towards the younger crowd. Those not bothered about Tatas indica baggage or will not shy away from checking non Maruti cars. My gut feeling says this will change Tatas image for good. There is something very unique is the way this car looks!

Looks nice. A bit Mitsubishi-ish though but in a good way. This definitely could be the mid life facelift for the Nexon (provided it sells well and Tata makes money on it ).

It's sadly hard for older people to shun the Tata Truck image when it comes to considering Tata cars. I was suggesting my father about going in for Tata Tiago and his totally rejected the idea as soon as he heard the company's name. People seem to think they've "assembled" the engine with whatever parts they could find and put together a car that barely works. Even on asking our mechanic for the last thirty years, he too shrieked at the idea of buying a tata car.

I really feel they've come a long way and are trying hard to shed that image and appeal to the younger crowd. What still bothers is me is the poor opinion of the after sales services.

If that is not personal, then Karan taking offence on Kangana saying "You support Nepotism", is not acceptable there are others who say "There is nepotism in Bollywood". Out of topic, but I can't explain it any clearer.

Hence similarities will definitely be noticed.

So if you want my opinion, I feel that there are folks who like Nexon, but don't like Bolt and its association with taxi market and those folks take offence when others opine that they do find similarities between these two models. Now whether this is "general" or "personal" is up to how people interpret it.
Referring to the example given by you, I just want to say that Steeroid's comments were for the general trend. The fact that you took it personally is completely your prerogative.

If that was the case there are so many statements made on this very forum everyday, If I were to take those which were against an opinion that I hold personally, I will be spending the whole day replying to those statements/comments.

And yes the similarities will be noticed, but it should be noticed where it exists. Fair enough you might say that in your opinion it might be similar, but that should be backed up with substance.

If so, kindly point out one body panel that looks similar in the two cars apart from the windshield and A pillar angle?

If you say the height of the car, well then they share the platform and that is the shortcoming of the platform.

I don't mind any car being associated with Taxi's. Hell out of the top 4-5 cars in terms of volume each month, I think 2 or three are immensely popular as cabs. So people don't actually mind that.

Anyway let's wait for the Team-bhp review for the merits and de merits of the car.

Till then , peace out!

There is always a prejudice, always a preferred and a non-preferred list with all of us. Personally I hate Iphones (infact any smartphone >35000 bucks. just not worth it!)

1. Prejudice says maruti cannot sell cars in premium segment

2. Prejudice says DSG are bound to fail

3. Prejudice says Honda stands for quality (india specific)

4. Prejudice says creta is a SUV while ecosport is hatchback on stilts

5. prejudice says innova crysta is VFM while hexa is expensive

The list is long. What we need to do is to form our own opinion and either respect, or ignore opinions which sound like prejudices. And what good companies do? They genuinely try to break those prejudices.

Like Maruti Suzuki is doing by launching Ciaz and S cross (premiumization, with success I would say)

Like VW is doing by reducing the "fail-rate" on DSG

Like Honda is doing by repeatedly dishing out low-quality cars

Like Tata is doing by constantly trying to improve the quality of its cars.

I don't know how many would agree or have thought of this. Just my personal view. Instead of making the user to forcefully choose one of the 3 driving modes, they could have either had another a general map as usual (like how it would be if there were no drive modes at all) and give an option to turn on / off the drive mode selection by pressing the rotary nob down or have a general tuning map as one of the options in the rotary nob along with the other modes. I personally feel that for users like me who know how to change the driving style based on the situation / requirement, the drive modes could have been an aditional option rather than being forced to use those options. I am not telling that it should have been an option but rather it could have been an option according to my personal views. Ofcourse I am one big fan of that rotary nob though.

Absolutely. Looks like a mini Hexa. Had posted something similar few days back -

Perhaps they can consider something similar for the facelift.

Totally depends on the gearing they've chosen. Even TATA's own Storme Varicor 400 does 100 kmph at 2000rpm. Hexa is even more relaxed at 1900rpm.

Perhaps with Nexon, they have targeted better city driveability, as the reviews also mention that the ratios are closely stacked. Not a big issue even on the highways as all the reviews till now suggest that the diesel engine is refined.

What's with that silly audio warning about the drive mode selection? Sounds downright childish, when there is already a visual display of it.
ISOFIX - RushLane says the Nexon has it.

These are not Kerala roads at all!

This review/report was done much earlier than the official media drive dates, with a Nexon media drive car which was made available to ACI at/near the Ranjangaon facility.

(someone in the dedicated Nexon WhatsApp group mentioned the road areas seen in the ACI video as Shirur, near Pune)

RushLane have posted their review.

Their verdict:
Quote:
The Tata Nexon is a game-changing product for Tata Motors, and a trump card in the much preferred segment of cars these days. The Nexon says bring-it-on to the competitors in terms of power, handling, features, driving dynamics and what not, and the foes are waiting to know just one thing with a sweat, the price!

It’s not just ‘Tata Motors’ anymore after we’ve driven the Nexon, its “TATA MOTORS” now!
They have also added estimated pricing - not sure if this is informed or plain speculation.

This should be just their estimation.
Infact, they have missed XZ+ variant.

How has been TATA Service Centre experience recently? I understand from another threads that HEXA gets a different treatment being a premium category, but has the experience improved for Tiago and Bolt owners?

My brother's Punto started getting better service after FIAT centers opened up and he stopped going to TATA.

Positive so far for the Nexon. And I hope Tata Motors does proper marketing post launch too.
