The Tata Nexon is offered with two engine options. There is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol motor which produces 110PS/170Nm and a 1.5-litre diesel engine which churns out 110PS/260Nm. Both engines come mated to a 6-speed manual or AMT gearbox. Additionally, both SUVs get multiple driving modes - City, Eco, and Sport -, which alter the way the engines deliver power. Speaking of which, the diesel engine has a nice and linear power output in both manual and AMT versions. The petrol manual though feels a bit spiky in the city and needs you to constantly play with the gears. Tata has fixed that issue with the AMT version. The power delivery feels smoother and the lag is virtually unnoticeable as well. Moreover it depends on your daily car usage. If you are traveling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day. Talking about Ford EcoSport, it is the oldest member of the sub-4 metre SUV family and the recent facelift along with the addition of new engines and variants has refreshed its appeal further. It looks like a sporty little SUV and it particularly shines in the handling and safety department. The engines on offer pack everything a buyer could hope for - strong performance combined with impressive efficiency. Sadly, there is no automatic on offer with the diesel motor, while the petrol-AT combo is priced at quite a premium. Do take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort.
The Tata Nexon comes with a turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol (110PS/170Nm) and 1.5-litre diesel (110PS/260Nm) engine options. The Nexon offers the torquiest engines in its segment. They are some of the most powerful ones as well. Both the engines come mated to a standard 6-speed manual along with an optional 6-speed AMT. The Tata Nexon delivers a claimed mileage of 17kmpl for the petrol and 21.5kmpl for the diesel version in its manual as well as automatic avatars. If you are traveling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day. If you'll be driving more in heavy city traffic then we suggest you to opt for automatic transmission which are easier to use and more comfortable for the driver, while Manual Transmission vehicles are less expensive more involved & are more fun to drive on highways.
2 serious flaws in all nexon.If u start the car After 12-15 hours, switch on the blower and the A/C will switch ON automatically. Software issue. The idicator should turn off after the steering is turned beyond 45° but if u turn the steering in opposite direction it turns off even at 20°Both issues acknowledged but no solution since 1 year. Only excuses. Check doors from inside, lower portion begins to rust within 1 year.Pathetic car
Diesel is more power, more exuberance. Petrol is a bit down compared to dieael. However, in city mode in Kolkata rush hour traffic, performance of petrol is good. No complaints there. Beyond that, it also depends on how much the car would roll daily. On ocassional long drives, its a smooth cool car. Cheers
The XZ+ is the trim where you get all the bells and whistles that Tata has been touting. There are a lot of things to flaunt here, such as tambour door on the central console, DRLs, passive keyless entry, push-button start/stop, 16-inch alloys and more. Further, for a premium of around Rs 20,000, you get the dual-tone version, which really stands out compared to other models of the Nexon. The XZ+ trims do spike the desirability quotient manifold, but the asking price is slightly on the higher side. Overall, buy it if your budget allows as this trim offers one of the best packages in the sub-4m space.
On national highways in Hills like road to Simla, in normal traffic Nexon with AMT is fine. If there is bumper to bumper traffic with frequent stops, you will have two problems:1. When starting from car in halt position, moment you release brake, the car will roll back, even if it was in drive mode even on very mild slopes. Hence you must Apply hand brake, lift the foot of the brake paddle, wait for 2 to 3 seconds and then release hand brake. If you do not wait for 3 Seconds, the car will roll back as this is the time the Clutch takes to engage, after the foot of the brake paddle is released.2. Above was the case of driving on mild slopes. In case the slope is steep, (more than 10 degree), even after taking precaution or procedure suggested in 1 above, after lifting foot of brake paddle and waiting for 3 Seconds, you will be required to pick up accelerator, before releasing hand brake, otherwise the car will roll back.3. And after the hand brake is released, the car suddenly jumps forward (depending upon the race given to prevent it from rolling back and if suddenly the slope ahead of car reduces) and if the gap between your car and next is less, you are bound to hit or kiss or miss the car ahead.4. Similarly it is not easy to park the car on small places by side of hill roads (difficult to find parking in India in Hills) because of un-predictable behaviour of AMT.Please do not be under the impression that you can overcome above by using Manual Mode of AMT as releasing of clutch, both in Manual and Automatic Mode, is not in your hands. Actually it is same in both automatic and manual mode.5. In case you are going to buy Nexon with AMT or have one - a piece of advice, MAKE A HABIT TO BRING THE GEAR SHIFT LEVER TO "N" (NEUTRAL) POSITION WHENEVER WAITING AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS OR IN HEAVY TRAFFIC. IF YOU APPLY HAND BRAKE WITH LEVER IN "D" OR "R" POSITION AND FOOT OF THE BRAKE PADDLE, YOU WILL RUIN THE CLUTCH. (within 5 minutes you may smell burning of clutch plates – This is because of CREEP + CLUTCH FULLY ENGAGED and CAR at REST.For Hills, Manual Car is better than AMT (of Tata Nexon or Other Manufacturers having same operation logic). It is possible to improve software and hardware of Nexon AMT to overcome above problems. I think that Tata’s Designers who designed present AMT were not experienced to visualize the problems.......................I do Hope my comments above are of use to you in taking a decision.RegardsRamesh
You can fit CNG kit in Nexon Petrol, but it is not advisable as this SUV is not available with company fitted CNG option. However modern age aftermarket sequential CNG kits are compatible with most of the cars, but, I won’t advise you to fit an aftermarket CNG kits as they are not as reliable and safe as factory fitted CNG kits, and most importantly it will void your car’s warranty.
I use XMA petrol,driven 3000 kms,with one long journey of 1500 kms,the vehicle is very good.In sport mode it is too good without any lag and you feel like driving continuously.KMPL in long journey was 14.5 and local around 11.I have driven for 12.5 hrs continuously with lunch break and for breakfast,and for a65 yr old man ,I did not strained at all.XMA model petrol for 8.76 lakhs is absolutely value for money and I have exchanged this with one year old Tigor Xbox car.
Here, Tata Nexon would be a better pick. The Nexon brings a dose of freshness to the compact-SUV game. There's a lot to like including the design, features and the diesel engine. The SUV is sorted mechanically with two powerful engines. Plus, it now comes with AMT options for both petrol and diesel engines. It also gets an infotainment system which supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is no dearth of space either and the cabin is comfortable enough for longer journeys. With the aggressive pricing, the Nexon is one of the most value for money SUVs out there.Read More: - Tata Nexon Becomes Safest Made In India Car, Scores 5 Stars in GNCAP Crash Test: https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/tata-nexon-becomes-safest-made-in-india-car-scores-5-stars-in-gncap-crash-test/32488/ - Tata Nexon Petrol AMT & Diesel AMT Review: 5 Things To Know: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/tata-nexon-petrol-amt-diesel-amt-review-5-things-to-know/30157

Yes, it’s true the looks and features we became so much fan off, were not so smart features after all. In1plain and simple words the common-sense was totally missing from this vehicle.! Yes, you read it correctly,1the common sense is not their at all in TATA NEXON XZ+. First, the Dancing Mirrors…! Scenario:- You just1came out of your home and stepped in your car ….……as soon as you will push the “Start/Stop(SS) Button1only once…….your rear blower will start……? Dude I am sitting in the front…….you should have1started the front blowers….? As mostly it’s single passengers sitting in the Cars………so why the hell1in the world you are starting the rear blower first.? Strange it is……! Then for the Front blowers you1press the SS button once again……okay the Ignition is “ON” now, with front blowers….Good…….but1why the hell the Side View mirrors are opening……? I have not even started the car yet and maybe I was just1not going to go anywhere at all………but why the Side View mirrors are opening if I am not going1anywhere.….? Talked to TATA MOTORS……they said it’s a Welcome feature in Top variant……so can’t do1much about it…! Okay, then I closed the Rear view mirrors by pushing the inner controller downward….cool,1they are close now. Now, I start the Engine to go to my office by pressing the SS button(along with Clutch)1third time, engine starts….perfect…….Side View Mirrors open again…? Dude you just lost it…….It’s1insane……I am such a driver that never uses the Rear view mirrors, and always do the lane driving…….!1So, TATA engineers should have given some sort of disabling mechanism for Side View mirrors’ traumatic dance1moves again n again……! Keep it simple guys and don’t make a mess of such AI integration…….we are1humans and we don’t need such repeated welcomes by our daily ride……just for starting1engine…….twice……jeez.! Mockery of the SS Button? Suppose you have just reached somewhere, want to Stop1the car engine, and simply need to wait for someone……….and keep the Blower/ Fan “ON”……….dude1you need to press the SS button three times…….! Just to “Stop the Engine and keep the FAN ON”. Let me1do it for you…….First SS Button press shuts the ENGINE OFF(along with Ignition+ FAN+ Rear1Blower-everything “OFF”)……….Second Press, re-starts the rear blower…….Third press, re-starts the1front blower / fan for you…….now you can wait for your someone.……! TATA engineers could have just Shut1the Engine off and kept the Fan/ Blower running in the single press…….isn’t it simple and easy……!1But TATA don’t want you to wait for anybody in your car…….specially with your fan “ON”. Or be ready1to press it three repeated times…….! Second, the Central locking……again without common-sense….!1Guys, you’re just not safe in TATA NEXON specially the XZ+ model….yes the top variant is specially1designed for only those people who have enough of money to be targeted by robbers again and again……!1Don’t believe me…….just trying stopping at any red-light and ….and……and don’t try to STOP the1engine……….ever……ever……ever…….forget the fuel economy / environment pollution / fuel1conservation…………don’t Switch OFF your engine at any cost…….Because, the moment you will do1this…….NEXON has opened all the four gates for your being vulnerable to robbers outside your car…….!1THIS HAS BEEN THE MOST SHOCKING OF THEM ALL…….! It’s been one month now…….I never switched off my1engine at any red-light or anywhere other than my office or my home………I FEEL SCARED…….IN NEXON XZ+.1AS I CANNOT TURN OFF MY ENGINE ANYWHERE AT ALL…….I MUST, IMMEDIATELY PRESS THE LOCK/UNLOCK KEY DOWN BELOW1TO RE-LOCK ALL YOUR DOORS…….AND JUST HOPE THAT YOU ARE FAST ENOUGH THAT NO ROBBER/ MOLESTER / RAPER HOPPED1IN YOUR CAR YOU WILL START FEELING SAFE AGAIN IN YOUR CAR…! Third…….only until you open your drivers’1door unlock lever…….!? Yes, I travel mostly alone from my home to office and then back…….! The moment1I open my(driver) unlock lever….all the doors will open……? Dude this is not Central locking……! If I1need to open all the doors I will use the Lock/Unlock Button on the front console…….! I am just opening my1Doors lever to unlock and TATA has once again left you completely vulnerable……by opening all four1doors……! You can also add My Laptop on the Back seat, lying their with all Car gates open…….for the1uninvited snatcher…….….just waiting to be picked….…….jeez…….….I’m once again scared, even1my laptop is scared now….….! Now you know….why I told that common-sense is missing in this Car.! Fourth,1You cannot leave your Elderly people inside the Car…… in a NEXON XZ+. Yes, don’t blame TATA for1this……….you should not bring any Non-technical(or not so tech friendly people along with you in the1NEXON car)……….or teach them to immediately press the Lock/Unlock key(on Dashboard) for closing all doors1& for their own safety. Scenario:- My father/ mother both senior citizens, sitting in the car….me driving1….okay. Now, I stop for a moment to bring something from the Market enroute……they both are still sitting1within the car…….! I think I should leave them with atleast fan/blower “ON”…….or they may suffer1due to lack of ventilation / air.! So, the Ignition is kept “ON”….so the blower can work…….Now you1stepped out of the car, you just pulled your door unlock- lever…….once again all the doors are1open………….immediately teach them to press the Dashboard Key with “Lock/Unlock” Icon on1it………because even if you are carrying the Key in your pocket…….and you try to lock the Car by the1key in your hand from outside…….all the doors will remain open as the Ignition is “ON”….! What good1is the Mainkey button Lock when the Ignition is “ON” – NO Good.! Only way to close “ALL” the doors1in such a scenario….make your not so Tech-friendly old parents….learn some tech finally….…….as TATA1has once again left them totally vulnerable from outside attacks………! I hope you are getting to the main1issues, I’m trying to highlight here……….! Mileage………please don’t ask…….not atleast1me….please.….! My car has just ran 500 Kms in total run…….and the average shown in the meter for that1500 kms is 10.0……………….! Yes, the Trip meter which I never reset right from the start………is showing the1average of 10 kms for the whole life distance of 500 kms……! Forget the claims TATA motors / or ARAI did for 17 kms average……! You’re most welcome to see my Trip meter with 500kms total Car run at 10.0 kms average.! Live example for you to see. I had a word yesterday at my Dealer he simply said please don’t go with the Meter gauge…….they do not show the true picture…….!1Go for full –tank and then do the Mileage calculations. I mean okay……but didn’t he meant to say that1the Tata Fixed our NEXON vehicles with Faulty Meters….? On enquiring further he said he is a New joiner from1SKODA Motors….………and he agreed that my above mentioned points are very valid and their must be some1way to disable them through some computer setting….…….”but the actual person who can do this is not1present now”…………so maybe tomorrow he replied…….……….when the engineer will come they will1inform me…….!
Sharing My Yesterday (18/11/2018) Experience:- Tata Nexon Kraz Plus (Petrol) is Best Level Compact SUV till now as per my 700 Kilometer Local Drive Experience. All Doors Side Rubbers protectors came out easily on dust cleaning. Driver Side Front Pillar visibility issue and creates right side blind spot. Others no issue find in this compact SUV.Very Poor Level Tata Service Centre (Hartron Motors LLP, Sector-18, Gurugram) Washing, Air, Vacuum & Cleaning Service.Never advise to take this Washing & Cleaning service there. Best Quality Services available outside Service Stations at various locations in Gurgaon with cheaper cost within 45-60 minutes maximum.But Tata Service Centre staff don"t know the cleaning process of cars. They don"t wash, air, vacuum service properly.Dust inside cabin after Air Pressure and Tree Leaves left outside Wiper Area after wash remains in car washing, after than vacuum cleaner service also very bad and at last on remaining dust of inside the dashboard, they done the polish work for brightness increasing.Small Mud stains still remains outside the car body, which are very easily removable with wet cloth in-front of them I clean with my finger only.I don"t understand what they have done in my SUV in the name of washing & cleaning from 12:34 PM to 4:45 PM (4 Hours ++ Time Taken and All time I keep standing there and watched all their activities on other cars also.)At last I have took the gate pass, because I have to go somewhere for meeting.As per my experience totally dumb & untrained staff at washing & cleaning service.
Nexon is not just VFM but a great experience car. In few areas, it's difficult to even match it but my personal experience with car has not been so great ! Being a completely new car from scratch from tata stable,it has it's own share of issues. Rattling issues and random mechanical issues decreases the confidence on the car + in-experience of service staff make the issues and whole experience of owning a good car takes a hit!!!Rattling noises from plastic to mirrors, issues in basic car mechanic like gear-box problem in slotting 2/3/4 gear during driving, gear lever getting stuck on 3 gear , steering column noise, steering getting stuck on either of extreme ends, suspension rods noise etc are just few examples I've faced or facing currently.It's these experiences which eclipses the goodness of the car which are comfort of choosing different driving modes, classy interiors & exteriors, superb rear seating comfort, practical usable features etc PS: I drive daily 100+ kms to office with around 85+ kms in highway still getting not the best of results in terms of mileage
