The Tata Nexon AMT will get a 5-speed manual transmission. This automatic gearbox will be offered on the mid-spec XTA and XZA variants only.

A Nexon XZ+ owner was in for a pleasant surprise when his Nexon went through a BCM update at Hartron Motors, Gurgaon, due to his complaint for an issue with his tail lights.



Neat additional feature. XZ+ owners, take note!


Our friendly neighbourhood Autospy caught this Nexon XZ MT test mule on the streets of Pune earlier today, and made an interesting observation: while the test mule driver was swapping through the options in the Harman HU, he noticed an "I-Pod" option in the list on display. This is an indication that Apple CarPlay & related features are being tested in the Nexon, which might be introduced soon. (The HU supports Android Auto at present)

Also, despite being shod with steel wheels, this test mule was equipped with a reverse camera.

In other news, I renewed my Nexon booking on 9th March. (related post (The "I Booked my Car" Thread)) Am waiting for a confirmation on the launch date for the AMT variants, before taking a call for either MT or AMT.

Hi All,

I have a budget of around 8.5 Lakhs plus another 25K for accessories. On road price in Karnataka is 8.6L for the XE (Diesel) variant. The next variant XM will cost an additional 80K on road with just an extra rear power window , 2 DIN music system and a central locking.

Do we have an option to fit rear power window and central locking in the showroom for the XE (Diesel) variant?

Instead of getting them fitted separately for the XE, extend your budget and go for the XM. It's the most VFM option in the Nexon lineup, and easily better than the XE which is a near bare-bones variant.

You get:
  • A center antenna,
  • Dual-tone wheel covers (single-tone for XE),
  • Metallic silver gear knob (grey black for XE),
  • Grab handles with coat hooks at rear,
  • The amazing ConnectNext Harman Infotainment System,
  • 4 speakers,
  • AM/FM, USB/Aux, Bluetooth connectivity,
  • Steering mounted controls for Audio, Phone & Voice,
  • Smartphone support with the ConnectNext, Trip-ON, Juke Car, Emergency Assist apps,
  • DIS with instant & average fuel efficiency display,
  • Rear parking sensors,
  • Speed-dependent auto door locking,
  • Follow-me-home headlamps,
  • Central Locking with Remote,
  • Back power windows,
  • Electric ORVM adjustment,
  • Electric boot opening,
  • Power window delay operation (up to 3 minutes) and
  • a Fast USB charging port.
Totally worth it.

However, the WR-V gearbox is awesome (more so after my 6 years of driving Nano) and the space inside is excellent. It is possible to install google maps on the Honda and that is why we have put it above other choices as of now. Plus the brand Honda and the urge to try something different is there too.

To look at Etios Cross also nearly crossed my mind . We had done a test drive in mid 2016 and that 1.5 petrol engine in a hatchback felt powerful and planted too compared to the 1.2 petrol on the Liva. However, given that its two years down the line and its still the same car with no update in sight, its way lower on the list.

We have not decided on anything yet finally. I just thought I will do a loud thinking and get a feedback before the 6pm deadline set by my better half to decide.

(My drive is 120km per day. twice or thrice a week depending on schedule. Other days, I will be working from home.)


Edit: For those in Delhi and NCR, Pahwa motors Delhi has manual Nexon XZ+ in stock in almost all popular colours I was told yesterday.

For those who are wondering about the exact power/torque figures of each of the Nexon's drive modes, here is a Team-BHP exclusive scoop:


Tata Nexon : Official Review-nexon-drive-modes-output-w.jpg


Sport mode = 110PS, 260Nm.

City mode = 90PS, 220Nm.

ECO mode = 70PS, 180Nm.


A request to add this info to the opening posts of this official review thread.

Please correct that, if its possible.
Not really. While the service interval is 15000kms the recommendation is to do a general checkup every 7500kms. To me, lower visits to service station means better experience.. be it check up or actual service.

WRV is also a good choice. Itís good in its own right. No doubts about that. Itís just about different requirements and choices to different people. All the best.

@Ravenavi has answered your question. The number of additional features for the extra money is worth it. We dont buy a car every day, and it often helps to stretch a bit for the next (VFM) model than regret not doing so.

Google maps can be had on your phone too. But For 120km on the day you drive, the driving comfort will be important. Look which one is more comfortable for you.

Thanks, RavenAvi - the clip shows "all new" .. but I think this would be for the currently available engine, isnt it ?

Thanks for sharing RavenAvi.

I wonder whether ARAI mileage figures are measured in Sports mode as well. Can anyone please confirm? If it's not the case, I believe consumers are cheated by car manufacturers.

I believe mileage is calculated for rated/specified/advertised engine capacity so in case of Nexon I think it is mileage at rated 110 bhp power which means in sports mode then.

Thanks a lot for this, this is such a cool feature to be built into a car, especially at this price point, i drove the nexon the other day and it really was impressive, unbelievable for a Tata!

I wish every manufacturer provides selectable modes in all the cars, other cars i guess are tuned somewhat between the equivalent of city and sports tune from factory. (A balance between economy and power)

And the Beast Arrives.
Recently got the delivery of Nexon White XZ+ DT (Petrol)

The initial impressions are superb (coming from Grand i10 Diesel). Need to clock some more KMs to get to know her better. When you have a second look on your car after you park it, that feeling is just awesome.

P.S- I would really like to thank TeamBhp and my member friend akhil994 because whom I now proudly own a beefy and marvelous TATA product.

Congratulations on your car and i hope it brings you lot of smiles and happiness. I am awaiting delivery of my Nexon too which is coincidentally of same color and variant. I feel White dual tone looks more mature and premium than other colors. Would you mind sharing a few pics of the car here for everyone to see. As they say if you got it flaunt it.
