Actually, they are correct, considering the relative importance of both Nexon and Iphone for India. A 1 lakh phone or a (anticipated) well priced car.

Oh thanks Guys, that was completely missed by a I-phobe like me. For the last few minutes,I was filled with a hope that they would come up with the Q501. I thought the Nexon was already launched after seeing the paper ad on Monday. What a downer.

The black color looks absolutely smashing! Very tempted to buy the car in exchange for my swift.hope they come up with great exchange offers to lure customer like me.

Customers will be going to a Tata showroom like Tom used to get Jerry with the smoky cheese hand guiding the path.

Test Drove the Nexon Diesel XZ+ today.
My observations (in the order that I remember them):
  • Front doors felt heavier than the rear doors
  • Mirrors are power adjustable, not foldable
  • Steering adjusts only for rake, not reach
  • No power 'surge', quite linear accelaration. (Nothing negative in it)
  • Build felt quite good
  • Ride quality is lovely, my Civic bounces a lot, this felt planted
  • Felt the steering to be on a lighter side, but manageable, weighs up decently
  • Sound quality is pretty good
  • Very good NVH. My Civic has a lot of wind noise
  • Lovely clutch and gearbox!
  • Plastics at some areas feel cheap. Like the plastic cladding on the sides, Pull handle on the hatch, cup holders on the rear armrest. The wooden ply sheet cover in the trunk which covers the spare tyre is too thin I felt, could have been thicker
  • Car is roomy, didn't feel lack of space coming from a Civic. Elbows did not touch, knees did not touch the dash, ABC spacing felt proper. Just wish the front armrest was a bit longer/slideable.
  • Rear is very spacious! Very comfortable car for 4 passengers.
  • Boot space is average, nothing to boast of.
  • Touchscreen is nice and responsive, it's very intuitive to be controlled with the buttons & rotary knob. Felt easy to do it.
  • The Park assist button and fog lamps buttons hide behind the gear lever, tough to reach them while driving.
  • Seat Height Adjust has healthy travel range. My wife is 5ft tall, but she found her position in a jiffy, also felt the clutch very soft & gear shifts easy. The Parking camera along with the guidelines also impressed her.
No complaints against the interior quality, fit and finish (Except few things listed above).
Overall I was pretty impressed by the car. A very good package for the city (Size, light clutch, driveability) and also for highway (Good power, controlled NVH, cruising abilities). I expect 10 Lakh OTR Mumbai (Too optimistic?).
Very tempted to buy
PS: Hated the Blue colour. Too loud for my taste. Loving the pictures of Glasgow Grey.

You have to press the knob in to fold the ovrms. There is no special button or switch like in other cars for it. The knob adjusts the mirrors and also folds it so it does have electrically foldable ovrm.

Uncle fell so much in love of TATA that he is trading his 2yr old WagorR for NExon

Hi Sam and Arif,
I tried doing that 5-6 times and the mirrors did not fold. I asked the SA if they don't fold, he said only adjustable, not foldable.
Good if they indeed fold.

Even I did not try auto folding them during my test drive. But if they are present as stated in the brochure, then you have to turn that knob to its center position and then press.

For me, Glasgow grey looks the best colour. Have confirmed the same to my SA. This colour subtly masks those funky design elements to give an understated look. Democar hasn't reached any of the Nagpur dealerships. Expected in couples of days. On road Nagpur pricing as per my SA could range between 8.50 to 12.50. But I feel that is way off the mark. Considering the segment, it would kill instantly the fantastic product Tata has brought.

The online brochure nowhere mentions the much praised Activity key. Could be offered as an accessory.

Also, I feel Glasgow grey with a ceramic white roof would look really cool and go well with the white belt line. Missed opportunity by Tata.

Edit: Someone has already done that dual tone version at TAI.

When the knob is in the centre you have go press the knob downwards, for a second and then it folds. If you just press it downwards in a jiffy, it will not fold. Have to press the button a little longer. I think that is to avoid accidental folding while adjusting.

Yes, the grey seems the best color, but all the pictures of the grey nexon I have seen are the single tone ones. Has anyone seen the dual tone in grey, I mean with the silver colored roof?

Dual tone will be offered only with red and blue colours.

Based on this OTR price for Bengaluru, the ex-showroom price should be around 8.8 - 8.9 Lakhs. That would undercut the Brezza ZDi+ by about a lakh.
