First look at our newly acquired beast. This was a sort of delivery at the stockyard itself to make up for muhurat. Car is back with Bafna for other formalities.Tata Nexon : Official Review-img_20191221_1516.jpg

IRVM view looks far too small and inefficient.

All the rubber beadings, foam throughout the vehicle are in good condition.

Brake discs have rust on them. Have asked the SA to get it cleaned off before delivery. Funnily enough, he mentioned, it will wear off on its own. Sad that he didn't find it helpful to mention, this will be at the expense of earlier replacement of brake pads.

This is normal for any brake disc that is out in the open and mounted on a car - new car or ones in use. The only discs that may not have rust on them are the ones still in factory packing, with plastic covering.

So today for the first time I test drove a petrol AMT. My dad and wife accompanied me. Below are my observations:

- 3 adults at the back is a squeeze for sure. Folks in the corner don't get proper back cushioning. Tigor fared better due to the stretched seats whose cushioning touches the doors.

- The car felt EXTREMELY JERKY. I'm not exaggerating. In B2B traffic it's logic of shifting from 1st to 2nd was extremely erratic. And yes, I know how to drive an AMT and I did revv and take my foot off the A expecting it to upshift. At times it did, at times it didn't. 2nd to 3rs gear and there onwards it's smooth, but in Mumbai we'll spend most of the time between 1st and 2nd gear which I felt were just so jerky. The AMT box had a mind of its own and I found it extremely irritating. Frankly it was such a disappointing experience because I was negotiating prices for a petrol AMT but after this experience I'm just put off for buying a petrol AMT. Their diesel AMT is wayy smoother to drive. I tried all the modes, including manual mode on AMT but nothing improved the gear shift logic.

- Cars build quality is MILES better than Brezza.

- Petrol AMTs engine NVH is terrible. Tigors engine felt way more silent and refined. Turbo the culprit here ?

- offered price is close to 11lacs on road.

Tomorrow we'll be driving the Glanza CVT and Brezza AMT.

During my test drive, I felt that the seats are on the softer side. I fear that this might result in back pain on longer rides. Can any owner share your experience?

Yup. Exactly the reason we walked off. The rear seats are too soft and reminded me of the zest(the reason wse sold the zest in 7minths was poor back seat cushion support. Too soft and terrible seats).

The seats in my rigor xz+are limo like in comparison.

Well, zest was exactly the other car that I tested along with Nexon. And I noticed the same issue. Nexon seat was firmer than the Zest though. So I think 5-10 km trips should be ok. Will a tight fitting seat cover make it firmer? I am concerned because I have booked the Nexon EV.

Yup. 5 to 10 maybe ok. But long distance or when stuck in traffic for an hour-it is very uncomfortable.

Seat covers don't know sir. I always keep stock seats.

Maybe the nexon ev top end with leather should be better

In my opinion, this is the kind of setup that a car deserves on most of the Indian roads.

Please may I request you to show us the outcome of the new low beams and new fogs, when you can?

Hey dksv, I have written detailed DIY threads for the low beams, front fog lights and rear fog light. They are published on the link I'm sharing here now. All 3 are on the 1st page so you'll find them easy.

Link - TeamBHP DIY Forum

The threads have pictures and videos of test results. The HID fog light thread also has a comparison test of HID head lamp and fog lamps. Cheers.

The reason for packaged new discs not having any rust is because they are coated with some oils(don't know the exact spec). So, it is imperative that one cleans the disc with brake cleaner(or other possible methods) before fixing a new disc in a vehicle if the need arises. Else, there is a chance that these oils will get the brake pads soaked with it.

Hi Reinhard, would you be kind enough to post links of the LED bulbs for replacing the halogen tail light, reverse light, and indicators please. I plan to replace the Estilo & Aria tail lights and number plate lights with LEDs and looking for a trusted seller on Aliexpress or amazon/flipkart.

The coating apart, are the pads permeable to get soaked ?

It is specific to the friction material of the brake pads. May be I should have used the word 'impregnated' rather than 'soaked'. The amount of permeability depends on the friction material used.

Well most important - each car model often has a specific and different bulb specification for each bulb. (I'm sure you know it, just writing for the benefit of other readers/visitors). So check the specifications for holder, wattage before ordering it.

Here are the ones that I'm using (specific links from the sellers I ordered from) -

Link - AliExpress - Nexon Reverse LED (XZ+ 2 bulb setup)
Link - AliExpress - Nexon 2x rear stop lamp LEDs
Link - AliExpress - Nexon 2x rear turn indicator LEDs
