Tata has an AMT-equipped variant of the Nexon compact SUV at its pavilion. The car has been displayed in a new Etna Orange colour. The vehicle on display runs on diesel and has three drive modes – Eco, City, Sport:
Tata Motors @ Auto Expo 2018-51.jpg

The car comes with a manual tiptronic mode for shifting gears manually and features like creep function and hill assist. The transmission controller has features like anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off:
Tata Motors @ Auto Expo 2018-52.jpg

This souped up Nexon is called the Nexon Aero. It gets a body kit, but no mechanical changes. The interiors get piano black finish for the dashboard mid-pad, steering wheel, centre console and door finishers:

Lip spoiler under the bumper:

Nexon Aero will be available in this liquid Silver colour with a piano black contrast roof:

Side skirting and red accents:

Can't spot both Bolt and Zest in the pavilion of TATA . I was hoping that they might come up with the midlife facelift of Zest at least. Disappointing, if they will let go both the cars off their portfolio and if no facelift is on the cards. Till the time 45X get into production, they should try to revive both the models, at least Zest if not Bolt.

I believe the success of Tigor and Tiago has paved the way for product lines more dynamic and bolder than earlier hence making Zest and Bolt redundant and unnecessary.
Anyway it does not make sense for Tata or rather any company to keep investing in something that doesn't give sales numbers. Operating multiple assembly lines (or even investing in variations for different legacy products to be accommodated on a hybrid assembly line) is not cost effective and hence the right decision to liquidate the legacy products.
The display by Tata nevertheless looks promising for the future provided they are able to take swift decisions.

The Tiago JTP looks rather enticing. It will be sweet to have a hot hatch at that price segment.

The current Tiago XZ costs 5.21L ex-showroom for the petrol model. Even if this version hits the showrooms at 6.5L (sounds reasonable enough), that is some serious power for the price.

Good to see a home grown automaker cranking up pace against the world giants with great quality products and future concepts.

My keen eyes fell on the MRF ZLO tyres shod on the car, they look different from the existing asymmetric pattern tyres, highly likely that they have changed the tread pattern to iron out noise issues reported by many and bring updated version to market soon. If i am not wrong the manufacturing date surely look like from early weeks of 2018

No mention of an upgraded Zest is a tad disappointment.

Not that I complain about the Original Zest. But market moved away from it. Case in point is the New Dzire sans the Swift prefix.

I would have loved a Zest with more glitzy clothing.

No, I am not im a market for a cs but still I truly believe Tata should have an answer for the new Dzire.
