Tata is all set to launch their sub-four meter crossover in the country. However, the recently unveiled TATA Nexon has been spied in an AMT (Automated transmission) variant.
The images display the interiors of the Nexon with an AMT shift lever in the place of a conventional stick-shift. However, we expect the AMT to be a six speed unit. Apart the AMT shift lever the interiors are identical to the one on the standard car with all the bells and whistles such as Harman infotainment system that comes with 8-speakers, Android Auto and voice assistance.
Powering the Nexon is a 1.2-litre ‘Revotron’ petrol engine producing 108bhp and 170Nm of torque and the diesel variant is powered by a 1.5-litre ‘Revotorq’ engine producing 108bhp and 260Nm of peak torque. We believe that the AMT variant will be offered only with the petrol variant. However, only time will tell.
We expect the launch of the standard variant in the coming festive season, however, we are also keen to see the AMT variant of the Nexon at the Delhi Auto Expo early next year. Post its launch, the Nexon will rival against the Ford EcoSport, Mahindra TUV300 and the Maruti Suzuki Brezza.
