I am canceling my Venue SX(O) D booking and picking up my Nexon XZA+ D
Can you let me know what offers? i will also be booking XZA+ D as 2nd car.

Already have City Torque Converter Petrol AT. So test drove Breeza AMT, Ecosport AT, Polo GT TSI, Venue DCT, finalized on Nexon XZA+ D for 2nd car.

Ecosport, Polo, Venue did not feel anything better than my City AT. All the 3 had mileage lower than my city, and Venue DCT showing around 7kmpl My City AT gives 9-10 kmpl in Bangalore and 16-19 kmpl in highways. Power and pick-up did not feel big difference to my city, polo was bit superior and venue was sluggish. So it did not make a case for me to get another petrol AT car with lower mileage and similar drive-ability. 2nd car as diesel would make sense for long drives.

So it came to Brezza AMT vs Nexon AMT D, interior and exterior looks made me choose Nexon.

I evaluated a number of options to decide on Nexon. I held off the final decision waiting for Venue to arrive (booked SX(O) D too) and checked it out before signing the dotted line.

Family just felt Venue was way too claustrophobic and the dash jutted in much at front. Comparison with my current super spacious Ford Fusion+ did not do the Venue any favor either. I am not sure if the squeeze was real or perceived but it was a show stopper in the final analysis. That said, I liked Venue for its exterior and the extra features, but interior comfort and roomy feel was much miles ahead in the Nexon. Plus I get an AMT which I found decent and also tried on slopes to confirm it works as expected. Nexon has a more powerful engine too but I wish they did not skimp on some basics though.

Among the others I considered, XUV300 had show stoppers in low GC and low boot space; Ecosport was way too similar to my Fusion+ that will remain, Harrier was too big for some of my lanes, Creta seems to have a high Rs/feature rate just with the extra 27cm, Brezza was too bland and tinny, S-Cross had a small Diesel engine and looked too close to a Brezza.

Today's newspapers mention 55k, which I understand is the same as last month.
I believe the exchange bonus of 25k within that in general is bogus (as in any car offer), with them offering a ridiculous price for the old car and then adding an imaginary bonus. But the cash discount, corporate discount and free accessories are available.

So my dear DIY enthusiast friend Malwett Lobo is at it again, turning his basic XM to XM+ . More power to him, as not many people can afford the highest trims and 'MalBro' not only brings in the best tech, he makes it better than the top variant! Here, he has added turn indicator matrix and sequential, a la Audi. If you wish to contact him for details please leave him a message, he answers every query patiently.

Hey, just last week i got delivery of the same DRLs. I was planning to install them using a fuse tap. But after seeing your friend's video, I have asked him to share his power source(ACC fuse slot number).

I'd changed over to Michelin Primacy very early on and after 25,000 Kms, I can confidently say this is the best upgrade that I would recommend for your cars. When I'm in the other Nexons, that my friends own, the road noise is very high (GY and BS, both) compared to the plush ride that these shoes offer

Got home my Nexon XZA+ Diesel White DT a few days back.

All good and no niggles so far - happy with the decision.

The AMT needs a little getting used to but it wasn't hard to adapt to drive an AMT and a Manual interchangeably.

I have booked my XZA+ DT D and the car would be available in the first week of June - evaluating whether wait for the billing.
Corporate discounts have received a cut of Rs.500/-, Now they are bought down to Rs.2500/-.

I too test drove Venue before booking my XZ+, Claustrophobic interiors & space were the major deterrents.

While it does take the rough with the smooth, the tyres are quiet cos its a soft compound. That's the basic character of these Michelins. I have extensive experience with XM1 and XM2, and can say they are not as fragile as those, so the respect!! Nexon is a city slicker and so are these tyres!

Thank you.
I think June has good discounts too. I read of an extra gold coin in the papers today!

Planning on a dashcam and a rear cabin light.
Got all the regular accessories - mats, mud flaps, seat covers, bumper protectors etc. from the dealer itself. I found the lights quite adequate.
So not really a lot to add on

Hello sir, hope you are doing well.
No, after a lot of back and forth, I let my 2014 Nano Twist XT go instead :(
The Fusion+ D stays as it completes its 11th year at 1.73L km - just got it a new windshield (with some scratches from wipers & rough cleaning causing some glare) and a new battery. Planning on some minor touch ups to make it brand new again.

A question to all Nexon Diesel owners. What is the FE you are getting, T2T.
Today I filled up at shell and as per calculation FE shows 13.91, this is the lowest I have ever got. The MID showed 17.3, that's a whopping 20% error. In the last tank full the error rate was about 13% (MID 21.6, T2T 18.9) and before that the error rate was 15%.
Heck the even the error rate is not consistent with Tata. Is it only my car or anyone also facing the same.
I use Drivo app to log refilling details. As per that my FE till date across all fill up is 16.02 KMPL (ODO 3200, Highway 1000, City 2200). Highway speeds 110-120 (avg speed about 70KMPH for whole journey)

The error rate seems to fluctuate from 2.8-3.2 KMPL. My Brio has a standard error rate of 0.7-0.8 KMPL from the MID. This is reasonable. Tata error is pathetic

In city my time taken to reach office is 1 hr 5 mins to 1 hr 20 mins. General speed is 13.5-14 KMPH over a distance of 17KM one way to office.

Hi, when I bought the vehicle highway T2T stood at an amazing 24 KMPL. The city mileage was 18 KMPl. Every subsequent service and ECU updation has actually brought the mileage down to 14.5 KMPL in City - presently . The highway should be 17-18 (havent done it lately). There is a mid-variation of 3-4 KMPL, from T2T - as you're aware. Also, Cleaning the air filter brings out better mileage, always.

Thatís actually one of the best implementations of aftermarket DRLs that I have seen. It doesnít look aftermarket.

Installed a Kicker Hideaway Underseat subwoofer on my Nexon XZ+. Pics posted on the below thread. https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/car-e...ml#post4605262 (Underseat Subwoofers)
So far, it is very good.
