Looks like that will be the idle resting place for the passenger side wiper. As long as it is effective and doesn't cause any problems, should be fine.

Although I would have preferred the wiper to start from where the rubber beading of the front windshield's lower section ended.

We should know in a bit, when the media presentation starts.

Depends on what is on offer. If it has full safety kit, including additional safety features over and above the XZ, it's a definite.

Maybe they will skip the XM - like in the Tigor lineup.

We shall find out in a bit.

Yes, the actual test drives for the media will be conducted from early morning tomorrow (probably a 6 AM start).

Today is reserved for the media presentations.

I think so. Lower variants are listed to come with 3.5-inch Head Units. (I think they are non-touchscreen ones)

I believe this is emergency warning triangle and not toolkit. However the triangle is tucked in the backseat in many cars but since Nexon appears to have folding seats hence the choice to place on floor.

Tyre size on the top spec is 215/60 R16. So good meaty tyres provided.

But, no leather wrapped steering wheel ? Strange decision by TATA! That steering needs a leather wrap!

Double storage glove boxes, that too illuminated. Is that a TIGER-related motif at the bottom (underside of the lid)?

Rear centre console has dual cup holders:

Rear AC vents with their own separate adjustment knob:

Looks like the rear seat will stay low, in the end. Shorter passengers could complain:

Nice Glove box!

Don't think so there are six airbags!

Much better than the blue. But seriously giving small car vibes in pics. Need to see in person.

Totally agree. Also rear end looks too busy.

The uninformed might even ask, 'is this the new Indica?' Owners would do well to not get offended by such queries.

Maybe because it sits lower (1607mm) than the EcoSport (1708mm) & the Brezza (1640mm).

Length-wise, it's similar to the other two.


Give me Red, any day!

More snaps of Tata Nexon. Looks a stunner for sure.

Headlamp is beautifully designed

Disc brakes can be seen

LED tail lamp
Tata's compact SUV, the Nexon-3.jpg

XZ+ branding. Hopefully it gets a bit more goodies we all not aware of
Tata's compact SUV, the Nexon-4.jpg

I was comparing the images of Nexon with the one displayed at the Auto Expo, while it looks exactly the same. There is one difference I noticed. The grey plastic on the bonnet seems to be darker gray shade in the final production version.

Not cool. What would be the effort to design a wiper which alignes with the bottom of the wind shield? And since Tata has poured a lot of effort into the design, I would have loved the cross wipers rather than uni directional.

Thanks, Interiors looks very rich and plush. Very European (elegant) design, material used looks to be top class and the space (width) seems more than adequate, a big car feel!

Do we have the dimensions?

I don't think Tata would have missed this, might be the glass area of the front windshield is too large to accommodate it.

Yes those are cup holders. Umbrella holder no doubt they wanted it to launch earlier as it is rainy season in India. Good move to show off the Umbrella holder.

Yes. Small car vibes. Actually it's the same in person too. Not like Ecosport or Brezza which 'look' much more SUV type.

The interior is stunning in comparison and all the materials looks much better as compared to the spy pictures.
Not comparable. The Nexon is a full size bigger in all aspects Below are the dimensions:
Bolt Nexon Difference
Length mm 3825 3995 170
Width mm 1695 1812 117
Height mm 1562 1607 45
Wheelbase mm 2470 2470 0
GC mm 165 200 35
