I think 1.3 MJD has had its time under the Tata hood. They are clearly revving away from it since Tiago, and later with Tigor and now Nexon. The official announcement doesn't say anything about a lower state of tune or a different engine.

Infact I wouldn't be surprised to see a 'facelifted' Zest in 2018 with the Revotorq 1.5 plonked. The tune might be lower than the Nexon. It would also help in recovering the development costs they spent on this engine. Not 100% sure if they would do the same with the Bolt.

With the media drives starting today, we should see juicy details on the Nexon starting to trickle in slowly

Please take any info you receive from these click-bait auto journos with a pinch of salt right now unless, of course Tata releases this info in one of their press releases. And knowing how important this info is, they would have themselves advertised it by now along with the details of the engines.

For the petrol Nexon, Tata makes use of a turbocharged version of the 110hp, 170Nm 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine, currently present in the Tiago.
Missed the fact that the petrol is same as Tiago petrol, but with a turbocharger. Fingers crossed since the Tiago petrol is pretty bad in terms of NVH. It's almost diesel like! Fingers crossed for this one.

The three cylinder diesel in the Tiago is better in comparison, just that it was interviewed. With the added cylinder and 110hp tune, this should be the motor to watch our for.

Zest and Bolt itself were aging facelifts of the Vista platform. Both were just stop-gap products like the actual HorizonNext products came along.

They should focus on new generation products like the upcoming B+ segment hatchback instead.

When Tigor came out with the same petrol engine from Tiago, Tata added a "Balancer Shaft" which somewhat minimized the NVH but its still present.

Quote from the Team-Bhp Official Tigor review " Tata has added a balancer shaft to the Tigor's petrol engine (Tiago should also get it!!) and the vibrations have noticeably reduced (although they are still there).A balancer shaft basically helps in eliminating those typical 3-cylinder engine vibrations up to a certain level. Quite a few engines in the Indian market are now adopting balancer shafts for refinement "

Surely this balancer shaft will be present in the Nexon, lets hope Tata's have gone a bit up the notch to reduce the NVH further in Nexon.

I don't see a Tata B+ hatchback/C- sedan for another 2 years atleast, and it might even border BS6 when diesels are slated to be more expensive. Their upcoming release is the Q501 whose mules we might see post Nexon launch.

They have to recover the investment done on the new diesel engine for the Nexon. What better way, than plonking it on the existing C- sedan in market.

It is rumoured that Tata is already working on a hatchback and a sedan above the Tiago and Tigor and the launch could happen next year. Details have been very sketchy and there were some comments about it here on Team-BHP. I guess these are replacements for the Bolt and Zest. Looks like a closely-guarded secret.

The 4 cylinder Revotron is a very tractable engine ( although doesn't rev freely to higher rpms like a Honda ). It builds up speed very nicely and in sports mode, is a delight to drive. Even on eco mode ( which I used it extensively ) in the Bolt in the 80 odd BHP state of tune, it used to build up speed briskly on highways and maintain high 3 digit speeds. Also I never found it noisy at all. Tata, for long, has been using good sound deadening material even in its petrol cars - maybe for that reason I guess.

With more BHP and torque ( assuming with a larger Turbo charger ) - the Nexon engine should be quite good as well. But lets be measured on FE expectation. FE should be on par with the Hyundais but not the Marutis/Hondas for sure.

Build quality like VW
driveability like a ford
features like a hyundai
after sales service like a toyota at the price of a maruti
fuel efficiency like a maruti
power like a GT
size like a creta but priced like a KUV

And no Tata badging please. they are no mahindra who can sell a tin box (TUV) or a bucktooth (XUV) at ease.

P. S. this is just an attempted (bad) satire, no offence to anyone intended.

Now that the Nexon kochi media drive started, I am not sure why nothing is surfacing anywhere about it. I had been refreshing the pages in this thread and on Twitter and Google since morning just to be disappointed on not seeing anything potential about the event yet. I guess we need to be calm for couple of days.

Somehow I feel that we may not see any Zest or Bolt in future. I could see ads of Bolt and Zest for taxi owners in local newspapers. So probably they refocusing (as they should) on platforms like Tiago, Tigo, Nexon, Hexa etc

Thank you details gentlemen My measure of a Tata's upcoming launch off late has been with the frequency of their test mule spotting.

I remember RavenAvi mentioning about embargoes until 27th July. So we might see the first details trickling in only later this week. All I see so far is the event photographs.

Sir, Why the passenger side wiper should rest like this ? as shown in the pic.
May be to point out this. Are we going to see this even in the vehicles once they hit the showrooms ?

That's your 5000th post, RavenAvi!

XZ+ means a higher variant, additional airbags?
