Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which variant is best in Tata Nexon which justify it's price as well? If I buy basic variant in petrol manual then would I be able to add some features separately similar to upper variant versions?
  • As. per current scenario You should go with the Tata Nexon XZ+(O) manual variant which is fully loaded with all the features and most important features like sunroof, connected cars Cruise controls, all the safety feature like ABS, EBD, hill assist, traction control, automatic head lamps, rain sensing wipers, and lot more and in the price of 11.7 lakhs onroad you will not get better deal in any other car. Now if you want base Variant than you can choose XM variant in this you can add some features after market but those additional features will not be durable and reliable.for long time. You should go and take a look at both variants and then decide.
  • As per your info the sunroof will not very affect the build because because of sunroof the other roof part company make stronger than the car which have no sunroof is . I will not recommended you to add sunroof aftermarket because when company makes a car with sunroof the structure is different and have high strength steel so that the sunroof will not effect very much on car build quality

Q. What is the minimum waiting period for Nexon? Which is the best selling varient of Nexon .This will help to get the Nexon as soon as possible
  • Tata dealers are so worst. I booked my nexon on 14th dec but still there is no update from Sagar Motor, Delhi. Even I went to showroom so many times and everytime they have no idea about when car will be allocated. Even I register a complaint against dealer. But Tata customer care service is also worst. They didn't take any action. No matter car is good or bad. Important thing is customer service which totally worst from tata. I think they should stop selling car when they can't provide proper service to customer or if they want to save their company then please cancel dealership of such dealers like Sagar motor.
  • Tata dealership is so worst. I contact Tata dealership on Dec first week on month he updated I will provide Tata Nexon with in week .After long time when I contact to sales executive please wait I will provide you vehicle. On 8 Jan he said please deposit booking amount the vehicle is coming soon. I have taken lone from bank. When I call The sales executive daily updates please wait very soon I provide the vehicle. On 18 Feb I call sales executive he told me please return the payment I can't provide the vehicle Tata goldrus Faizabad road is my dealer.
  • Pl ask the sales executive to send details of allocation like chassis number, Engine no. Please verify the chassis no (means the 10th and 12th character shud b am and A/B) am for 2021 and A for Jan, B for Feb. He may ask you to make partial payment. In my case I confirmed his allocation mail and transferred the car loan AMT 5.5L and informed in mail that cheque of remaining amount will be given after PDI. After 7 days I was informed that vehicle is ready for PDi. I did PDI and given cheque for balance amount. After 6 days got the vehicle delivered

Q. I am going to take first car and I am just a beginner in driving as I recently finished my driving classes. I just can't judge the vehicle by test drive also. Is Tata Nexon XM good for me? does XM having basic features. budget point of view also, I am planning within 9L?
  • All features are positive. The most important thing you are going to get is SECURITY or SEFTY. against which you will have to loose better mileage. Better the security, the lower the mileage. Above all it is a sports like car and so good pick up and sturdy body cannot be combined in lower model.It is well said manual car gives better average than an automatic version. No of views support this fact. For a new beginner, manual gear operation may be advisable to get best mileage. Diesel variant gives better average but, it is not suitable to an average user. It is for a business urpose who has to drive more than hundred kms everyday.and has to earn by more and long driving.Pl go through no of opinions in this regardsHariom Vyas
  • Do not make the mistake of going with Tata Nexon as your first car. All the dreams you have about your first vehicle are gonna come crashing on you once you find out the manufacturing defects, quality issues, bad service. Go for Ford if You want complete peace of mind, Kia or Hyundai if you are okay to compromise a little bit on Safety and performance. On Nexon, you'd be compromising on everything. Its a 5 star safety car because it stays in service centers more than it stays on road man!!
  • Yes Tata Nexon is the best car and best choice. XM Variant is very good, you will get DRL projector headlights, all safety features like hill assist descent comtrol ABS EBD and everything you want go for it you are gonna love this car.

    Approaching 2½ years and completed 23k kms and countings I'm in love with the diesel motors the grunt, it pulls easy, put in 3rd and drive within city with zero efforts as if you're driving an automatic minimum gear change. In 3rd it can move the car from standstil and pull from as low as 25kmph that's the level of torque it has. Also own a swift vdi and an aspire titanium dragon series but trust me nexon is my fav daily car love driving around with it all in all am happy with my purchase apart from few niggles being an early bird got it within 3 months of launch which were rightly taken care by the TASS guys. Before buying one i had shortlisted nexon and ecosport after test driving one i never looked back at ecosport. Nexon striked all the checklist and its not that am compromising anywhere it being a Tata. Its a myth many carry around about a Tata product. The only thing I'm dissatisfied is the professionalism shown by the service advisors nothing sort of a deal breaker for the potential buyers if one knows how to deal with them. I know how to get things done for me. But, Tata should concentrate on training their staffs basic professional approach on handling customer. Otherwise a thumbs up. Initially got it for my highway drives after driving a dicor for a decade but seems like it has become a daily car now.

    I bought the nexon xm after thorough research and it is the best compact suv under 10 lakhs.I got it for 9.20 lakhs.But i would prefer others to go for the xms variant if they have an extra 60, 000 (also if you need the sunroof) in their budget.It lakhs some features like touchscreen infotainment and armrest.But no one would prefer these features over the build quality.I mean, These are parts that can be installed in the future when you have enough money but the safety features and build quality can't be installed like that.So nexon provides all safety features including traction control which is a luxury under 10 lakhs.

  • 5.0

    Performance wise nexon is best in its segment with a engine of 1.5 litre diesel engine with a top class interior and comfortable on long route smooth and very tough body of tata as it's one of the best model tata has made i am not a person who just praise like that but it's a ultimate car muv in this range and i have taken test drive of tuv 300, s-cross which i think is not a car to compare with this,and venue which is 1.4 l engine and EcoSport but this vehicle is best in its segment power comfort milenge toughness everything is perfect.

  • 5.0

    I won't expect RR or Beemer kind of things from a 12 lakh vehicle, But what Nexon offers you is the Safety, Comfort, Fun of Driving, Fuel Economy and a lot of satisfaction. Have done 10000+ kms in 4 months, and never ever had any major issue apart from the ones that comes with new vehicles like software update, usb port issues.Highly recommended in the budget around 10 - 13 lakh.Now that Mahindra XUV 300 is also 5 Star rated, you have two worthy options in the price range.

  • 5.0

    Fantastic vehicle on job. No one can believe that it's an Indian vehicle. Structure, superior specifications, safety and comfort for the driver and passengers. Very big wheels in alloy fitted version. I used to drive majority of my drives on highways. Giving me average mileage of 22.50 for a round trip of 409 kms driven in 150 kmph. Amazing, proud to have this vehicle, kudos to Tata and team to have taken Tata's image to very next levels.

    The car has been a good experience for 2 months. Delivers what we have paid for it. Ample of space and surprisingly behind is really good. There is some cabin noise and minor issues, but overall worth the cost we pay. Mileage is around 14 to 16 depending on driving in the city.
