Anyone else who thinks alike ?
I believe the best way to go ahead is to show the rankings provided by various companies like JD Power etc. While that may not reflect the true picture, I believe it would reflect the situation far better than anecdotal evidence and perceptions.

In the meanwhile, we may have a poll of our own with members who own a particular brand or owned a brand within the last 6 months voting on various parameters. Then we would have a TBHP ranking and general ranking.

For example we can have four parameters with different weightage


Parameter Weightage
Quality of Service - 50%
Timeliness of Service - 20%
Cost of Service - 15%
Accessibility/Location - 7.5%
Interaction with Advisor etc - 7.5%

Of course there can be sub-parameters within each head, once again with different weightage etc.

Now that Tiago AMT is launched, I hope Nexon AMT will next on tata's cards. RavenAvi, any update on Nexon AMT launch?

2772 units is great and near the Ecosport. The October 17 figures should be 4K or so

And the VIN sticker on a recently delivered car. Notice the "Osprey" mention and the different colour shade mention (instead of Seattle Silver):

You might want to mask the barcode as it is easily readable by any barcode reading app.

Spotted a Tata Nexon while driving to Hebbal near Palace grounds. It was dual toned. The Nexon design is not neutral and evokea strong yes or no.

Got to know from my sources that an issue has been identified during PDI of Nexon petrol variants, due to which the company has issued an official communique to all dealers that it will take at least 15 days to rectify the issue, and to keep all would-be deliveries temporarily on hold.

Also, all petrol Nexon dispatches have been put on hold for now.

TD'ed a Nexon petrol yesterday. Fantastic car. Awesome road presence and ground clearance. Liked the suspension. Took it over a few bumps where the beat or wagon r throws people around and there was very minimal movement. Few things stood out though:
a. intercooler seems too exposed for comfort.
b. Clutch was insanely light, more than the wagon R.
c. My feet were fouling with the steering column on pressing the clutch.
d. ECO mode was too dull. Very unusable i must say.
e. The center console was too high. almost like sitting next to a wall.

Loved the dashboard and the infotainment system. Also bottle holders should have been upright and not slanted to prevent spills.
All in all a fantastic effort from TATA with all the proper points addressed. I had TD'ed the Zest then the TIAGO which was an improvement over the zest. This one was even better, TATA sure is making good cars. Hope the service supports these wonderful machines.

Thanks RavenAvi for your valuable inputs. Any pointers as to what may be the issue? My XZ+ Diesel is slated for delivery next week. Also would be helpful if you can share whether you plan to go ahead with booking made for Nexon.

Finally took a test drive of the Nexon diesel.

Took the test drive from TC motors Howrah. The advantage of this showroom is, its located right beside Nh6, so one can take a test drive of 15-20 kms on a 6 lane highway. The staffs were friendly and cooperative. The test drive vehicle was arranged in 15 minutes. In the mean time we were offered coffee/tea/cold drinks.
My last two visits to Tata showrooms were not at all pleasant, they were rather disappointing. 1st was was in 2010 for a Fiat Punto, 2nd one was for a Nano in 2013. But this time its a different experience altogether. The professionalism, friendliness everything was proper and up to the mark.

Coming to the car-

Looks are subjective. I had a neutral feel. It neither looks good nor bad. Felt the rear to be a bit quirky.

Getting inside and coming out of the vehicle was easy. One really do not have to climb up. Elderly persons shouldn't have a problem. The doors felt heavy and shut with a thud. Build quality seemed to be great.

The interiors were awesome. I loved it. May be best in its class. Starting right from the drivers side arm rest to all the controls, i found every thing to be ergonomically positioned.

The ac was a chiller.

The music system sounds good.

The seats were comfortable. Though i found it to be more suitable for four persons rather than five. The leg space in front and rear were adequate.

The boot space felt okay too. Coming from an Etios, any cars boot space feels small to me !

Coming to the driving part-

Had to press the clutch to start the car. Started driving in ECO mode. It was strictly average. Had to push the vehicle hard on 3rd gear to reach the triple digit speeds fast on the highways. It should be adequate inside city. One can use the ECO mode on highways too, if he is a sedate driver and maintains a steady cruising speed. Fast driving on single lane highway can be a bit tricky with the ECO mode on. One have to pre-plan the overtaking maneuvers.

After driving for 5-6 kms i shifted to sports mode. I had an expectation that the car will simply take off with the sports mode on! But its not! With sports mode on, i will say the performance was adequate but its not a scorcher. If i buy a Nexon this will be my default driving mode. With sports mode, one gets more than adequate power and decent pick up for the Indian highways. I pushed the vehicle beyond 120 km/hr on an open stretch and it was rock stable with good speed masking capacity.

The 260nm torque is evident. Nexon pulls cleanly from 2nd gear without any input on the accelerator.

The overall NVH level inside the cabin was really good. Engine sound is audible if windows are rolled down or one is standing beside the car.

The handling was up to the mark. Liked the way the car handles. Drove fast on a longish 'U' turn, did sudden lane changes with good speed but the car was rock steady and never gave any nervous feeling. The handling is quite sure footed. The eps is well calibrated too. It gives decent feedback. Appreciating the handling of Nexon after driving an old gen Ford Figo!

The braking is good too. Slammed the brakes at 110km/hr. Abs kicked in and the car stopped without any drama.

The low speed ride quality was a bit harsh but it gets better at higher speeds. The low speed harsh ride quality was acceptable against the handling this car offers.

The only thing i didn't like was the gear shift. I wont say its notchy or rubbery. While engaging 5th the slotting was not very smooth for a couple of time. Engaging the reverse gear required more pressure than what i would have liked.

Took it off the road to do a bit of soft roading. The 209mm ground clearance was more than adequate with excellent approach and departure angles. People who like travelling to hills and places like Ladakh or Himachal will be more than happy with this car!

As a package i loved the Nexon. The pricing felt VFM too.

Few pics i took from the test drive-

The speedometer console looks good and neat.

Center console looks classy

Have to lift the ring to engage reverse gear.

350L boot space is adequate for the long weekend family trips.

Rear seat comfort and leg room were good. The rear AC vent was effective too.

More than adequate ground clearance. Ladakh goers will be happy!

The quirky rear!

From this angle, i felt the car to be most smart looking.
