Quote:
The Tata Nexon AMT features a 6-speed automated manual transmission. Tata Motors recommends driving in the automated mode for achieving maximum fuel economy. Creep function is present to offer driver more convenience in heavy traffic and during parking. There’s a ‘kick down’ feature that downshifts the gear if the accelerator pedal is quickly pressed during automatic mode while driving at a constant speed. It is mainly useful during overtaking out on highways.

If all goes well, expect a launch at the 2018 Auto Expo itself, where the AMT variants will be showcased.

They are also testing the XZ manual variant. Maybe a simultaneous launch on the cards?

From all the scoop pictures I have seen of the Nexon AMT, it seems that the XZA variant will not come equipped with a rear wiper & defogger.
Test mules usually don't have a few features which are added later to mass production units. For example, the earlier Nexon XZ+ mules were equipped with normal antennas. Too early to deduce anything from the test mules - better wait for the final feature list of the AMT variants on offer.

Thanks to Moderator vid6639 for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing them with other enthusiasts!

Here are some images of the upcoming Nexon AMT. The car was parked near Vid's office in Banaglore.

so here is proof that TATA Motors is on the right track. What better way to get publicity than parking the test mule near a BHPian's office.

Sure shot way to grab attention and there it goes into the forum. Looks like a planned attempt by TATA

Absolutely! Besides, without the camouflage, one would probably not look inside the vehicle to see the different shifter. The best camouflage would be to leave it un-camouflaged but without the auto specific decals obviously.

Thanks for sharing details on a much awaited variant; and a much needed one too. One small observation though, that is I can't seem to notice the tambour console next to the handbrake.

With the presence of the floating display but not the beautiful console, may this confirm that the AMT will come in just an XZ variant?

It looks as if there is a new color on offer too. Somehow I see a orangish shade beneath the camouflage or is it time to test my eyes.

From the opening post of this thread, posted by me:

And this scoop dating back to September 2017, from the Nexon Official Review thread (The Tata Nexon, now launched at Rs. 5.85 lakhs):

Wow. Looks like our prayers have been answered. The AMT version of NEXON showcased at Auto Expo 2018 is based on the XZ+ variant. I can see the Rear wipers. Since its based on XZ+, it should also come with Start/Stop Push Button & Center console with Tambour Door & Armrest.

Praying that they don't go back on the decision

Also, the Dual Tone in this particular car is with Black Roof. I prefer Black Roof to the Grey Roof currently provided by TATA.

Yes, Hill-hold Control will be present in the AMT.

Nothing is sure until the car enters mass production. My sources still say that it will be the XZA, not the XZ+A. Maybe this was an one-off for the Expo display lineup.

Let's hope for the best, and wait for the XZ+A to be finalised for commercial production.

Thanks for confirming. It's a really good feature. I have already gone ahead with paying for manual version. Will have to stick with the same.
