Tata Motors is back in the groove with the launch of Nexon compact SUV. The Nexon is hogging all the limelight owing to its radical design and a lot of clever engineering touches. The white ceramic strip running along the windows is a clever visual touch and merges well with the other design elements like tear-drop headlamps, smiling grille, muscular bonnet etc. Step inside and the quality of the cabin is pretty impressive, especially in terms of choice of materials and their soft-touch feel. The Tata Nexon is powered by a set of new-age powertrains - 110PS/170Nm, 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and 110PS/260Nm, 1.5-liter turbocharged diesel engine. For now, both these engines are mated to 6-speed manual transmission though AMT is soon expected to join the ranks. Priced between Rs 5.85-9.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Nexon has primarily got Maruti Vitara Brezza in its crosshairs along with Ford Ecosport and Mahindra KUV1OO NXT.
At first look, it's hard to say that Tata's latest SUV tucks under four metres in length. Its voluptuous design and the use of vibrant colours on the outside makes it look striking. Speaking of the design, it has been kept really close to the 2014 concept. The white band which runs along the side, at the boot and underlines the fog lamps really livens up the look. The dual tone roof, along with a rising shoulder line and a sloping roofline makes it look sporty as well. Overall, as far as exteriors are concerned, the Nexon is arguably the best looking sub-4m SUV out there.

Tata has really put in a lot of thought to the design, but not so much in terms of practicality. The cabin looks premium with the use of good plastics, 3-tone colour scheme, floating multimedia display and a high centre console. But, bits like the deep and narrow storage, lack of proper cup holders and a narrow opening for the USB port cause a bit of trouble. The seats are really comfortable and both the head/legroom are adequate.
The Tata Nexon is offered with two engine options. There is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol which produces 110PS/170Nm and a 1.5-litre diesel which churns out 110PS/260Nm. Both engines come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Additionally, both the SUVs get multiple driving modes - City, Eco, and Sport -, which alter the way the engine delivers power. Speaking of which, the diesel engine has a nice and linear power output, whereas the petrol feels a bit spiky in the city.

The Tata Nexon is available in five trim levels - XE, XM, XT and XZ+ and XZ+ dual tone, all of which are available with both the fuel options. The base XE starts at Rs 5.85 lakh for the petrol and Rs 6.85 lakh for the diesel. The top-end XZ+ (dual tone) variant is priced at Rs 8.6 lakh for the petrol and Rs 9.45 lakh for the diesel. The XM variant in the lineup comes out as the most value for money as it offers features like remote central locking, reverse parking sensors, electrically adjustable ORVMs, rear power windows and a music system with four speakers, barely missing any essential feature.

Maruti Vitara Brezza: Arguably the best package in the segment, the Vitara Brezza is built for India and has everything that the average buyer wants, and nothing else. The 1.3-litre diesel, 5-speed transmission and the suspension setup work very well to give you a sporty drive. Not to mention, it has all the space you will ever need.

Ford EcoSport: The Ecosport is the oldest member of the sub-4 metre SUV family. It looks like a sporty little SUV and it particularly shines in the departments of handling, safety and in terms of the engine options on offer. It will even undergo a facelift soon.

Honda WR-V: Honda’s late entry in this space, the WR-V is based on the Jazz, but that’s where their similarities end. It gets a lot of goodies that include a sunroof, aggressive looks, high ground clearance and a big boot. Did we mention it has a sunroof?

The Tata Nexon is a little late to the party, but it has arrived well prepared. The SUV is sorted mechanically with two powerful engines. Inside, it is loaded with features and has a lot of space to get comfortable over longer journeys. With the aggressive pricing, the Nexon is one of the most value for money SUVs out there.
