They split the media drives into batches, so the first day of the drive it will consist of one set of journalists, the next day another set and usually, the third day is given to the bloggers.

So the presentation that happened yesterday, is that only for people attending the first day?

Default Tata's compact SUV, the Nexon

I am so keen to know from these journalists on the following parameters
1 - Refinement levels. Have owned Manza, Vista and Indigo but they all lacked refinement
2 - NVH levels. Even my Manza was not very good at it. It was just fine but not like my Hundal i20 and Verna.
3 - Interior Quality - Manza was better than my Indigo but still not premium quality.
4 - Gear Shifts - Manza was notchy and even Indigo.
I have driven both Manza and Indigo diesel for 1.60 lakh kilometres and Vista for 70,000 without any mechanical problems except for regular servicing. The only thing that made me change to Hyundai was refinement and quality plus after Manza Tata had no new product for almost 3 years. If my above factors are better in Nexon, I might go back to Tata Motors again.

You are right. A mechanic at a Toyota told my friend, who was looking to buy a used Fortuner, to avoid pre-2012 Forts. The early ones (2009-2011), according to him, had issues with brakes , suspension and some other stuff. And Crysta niggles are well documented. But, many would pretend deaf because it's Toyota.

Now, coming to Nexon, they say it resembles Bolt? Really? Elantra is far closer in appearance to Verna than Nexon to Bolt. Even Santa Fe from a distance has me confused with Creta. This, when we have another in-between car called Tucson. Then Audi Q3 and Q5. Compared to those, Nexon is not at all like Bolt.

Looks like first day was for the Print Media, today seems to be for the Online Auto portals / fora and tomorrow for the Blogging junta.

Good to note Mod Aditya is there for the drive, he had covered the Hexa drive as well with the same meticulous standards we have come to expect from T-BHP reviews.

Hope to see the sneak peak review in the next few days before the exhaustive one is compiled and goes live later.

Few things to note down which tells us Tata is listening to the Feedback and Forums.
1) Tiago had bad NVH for petrol engine - Fixed it in Tigor by adding Balancer Shaft
2) Tigor had less powerful engines - Fixed in Nexon by making most powerful in segment
3) Hexa had complaints regarding expensive SUV withour Android Auto and Car Play - its coming in Nexon
4) Hexa received complaints regarding very less storage spaces - Nexon has oodles of it and much more.


Tata should read and get feedback from people who want Cruise control, Sun-Roof and 6 airbags. Next product might have this sorted too

Is it me that Nexon in Red color gives an illusion that is smaller than Blue. Wonder if black roof would have looked better on Red than gray.

Some more pics from today.

Carblog India compares the Nexon with Maruti Ignis. A poorly written article though as speculative specs are used, whereas actual specs have been revealed yesterday.

http://www.carblogindia.com/tata-nex...uti-ignis/amp/

Speaking of specs, is the ground clearance of 209mm as per the new ARAI method of using laden weight? Can't see it being so, but not sure why TATA is using the old method to advertise either when all others have already been announcing laden GC.

Before anyone starts to jump, should clarify that 209mm is huge eitherways. Just too huge as per new method though.

Same team as the Hexa - Aditya & Vid6639 are reviewing the Nexon .

By the way, who is the gentleman with spectacles in the tweet? I think Tata used the wrong picture for Team-BHP in their tweet.

Unfortunately the post is written by me. The details were put together before the specs came out and hence the glaring errors. That said, I've made the required changes and tried being more accurate. I have also included a section on the ground clearance. Yes, 209 mm is quite a lot of clearance for a car in this segment. Thanks for the feedback.

I was sharing the pics of Nexon with a couple of my relatives and some said "this has the typical Indica look" - I was like "What?".

They are fine with the shabilly looking Suzuki's and of course the Crysta's but just complain on Tata's or Mahindras.
