    Tata Nexon [2017-2020] XZ Plus Diesel Dual Tone Review

    Let’s face it, a decade or so ago, not many people would have recommended a Tata vehicle to their comrades. For years, the local brand was seen as a typical budget box on wheels, with hardly any compelling products. However, in the last few years we have seen Tata Motors bettering their quality and churning out some impressive cars, and what better product to represent the evolution than the all-new Nexon.


    Let’s face it, a decade or so ago, not many people would have recommended a Tata vehicle to their comrades. For years, the local brand was seen as a typical budget box on wheels, with hardly any compelling products. However, in the last few years we have seen Tata Motors bettering their quality and churning out some impressive cars, and what better product to represent the evolution than the all-new Nexon. 

    In a market as competitive as the compact SUV segment, being simply good isn’t enough, which is why Tata has come out all guns blazing with the Nexon. Stylish, comfortable and feature-rich, here’s how the Nexon is changing the public’s perception of Tata Motors to that of a brand that "has come a long way". 

    Design and Style

    As far as compact SUVs go, the Nexon is a bit out there – running in the midst of traditional, slab-sided, high-riding vehicles and there’s a lot going on with its design. With its multilayer headlights at the front, through the bulging wheel arches to the very specific and animated rear-end, if the Nexon is a vision of Tata’s future designs, that future is pretty funky. Throughout our road-testing period, the Nexon managed to turn heads wherever we went. 

    Better still, it’s one of those rare cars that fairly mimic its erstwhile concept form. Bits like the smiling mesh grille, high-set projectors headlamps and those razor blade-like 16-inch alloy wheels look striking without appearing overdone. It’s even got a few unique touches like the grey coloured roof and the thick white strip that runs across the car. While the no-frills, entry-level XE trim comes standard with the ceramic white trim on the bumper and around the glass area, it loses out on the grey coloured roof. Also, it doesn’t get projector headlamps, 16-inch alloys, LED daytime running lights and front fog lamps.

    The Nexon’s appearance, then, is a little more daring than what we have seen in this segment. We wouldn’t call it a heavily polarizing design but it is bold, indeed. 


    As funky as its exterior is, inside the Nexon, the cabin is sophisticated in its design and well finished to an extent. Most of that multilayer dashboard is made of good quality materials and even the design appears less generic and rather sleek. What you see is matched with some nice looking light grey trim bits and a higher standard of fit and finish compared to other models from Tata in recent years. It’s not entirely original though. You will notice some inspiration from European luxury carmakers in the layout of the media screen and a few other bits. Nonetheless, that BMW-like free standing touchscreen display and a centre console that extends all the way in between the front seats are elements that are entirely new to buyers in this segment.

    Sticking out of the dash, the touch display catches the eye as soon as you turn the key. Interestingly, the font design and layout for some of the functions resemble Audi’s MMI system in many ways. More on that later…

    As for the all-important quality, the Nexon is a step-up over the rest of the Tata line-up. The brand has nailed it when it comes to overall ambience by cleverly using black, grey and a few glossy black trim bits. Having said that, fit and finish is still an area of concern – bits like the power window switches, lower half of the dash and wiper/lights stalks feel flimsy. Overall, the material build and plastic quality is on par with Maruti Vitara Brezza, however, it isn’t as solidly built as the 2017 Ford EcoSport we recently tested. Ergonomically, the Nexon is among Tata’s better efforts, featuring a large glove-box and cup holders over the rear armrest, but it’s not perfect. The storage space under the front armrest is too narrow and useless for regular size cups and even the glove-box lid which comes with several tiny utility spaces is of no use when you have a front passenger. What’s more, the control stalks behind the wheel are oddly angled, meaning they require full twist of your palm to engage them.

    The Nexon gains back some points when it comes to space and comfort. The front seats are adequately large and the stiff side bolstering does a good job of keeping you in place. The legroom and headroom are generous too. The only thing that needs improving upfront is better thigh support and a more ergonomically sound driving position – the pedals are slightly off-set and the steering wheel feels a tad too close to the driver. The Nexon’s extra width over its competitors pays dividends as you switch to the rear seat. It is softly padded, offers more lateral support than all its rivals, has adequate contours and the backrest angle is close to perfect as well. Tata is even offering air vents at the back, a 12 volt outlet and cup holders in the armrest for added convenience. However, the latter arrangement is poorly finished. The boot, at 350-litres, is right on the money for a vehicle of this size. It’s wide, cleanly spaced out and thanks to the 60:40 split folding rear seats, can be extended to 690-litres.

    Safety and Equipment

    The Harman developed infotainment system with that pop-out display is definitely the cabin highlight. Unlike other Tata models including the Hexa, this system gets a crisp, high-res display that interestingly enough looks a lot like Audi’s MMI unit. While it looks nice and modern, this system could use better computing power as it’s nowhere as smooth as the new EcoSport’s multimedia system. That being said, the Nexon’s 8-speaker system delivers exceptional audio quality. 

    As for the overall equipment, the Nexon gets all the basics like climate control, key-less go, reverse camera with guidance and daytime running lamps. Meanwhile, ABS and airbags come as standard across all trims including the entry-level XE. The top-spec trim even gets a water-proof wrist band which acts like a key. It acts as a great feature for those who often go running and swimming and don't want the hassle of carrying the key fob. Oddly enough, the Nexon misses out on rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and cruise control – features that are common in this segment.

    Engine, Performance and Braking

    We will get past the numbers first. Tata is offering the Nexon with two turbocharged engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel, both developing 109bhp of power and 170Nm, 260Nm of torque respectively. Both are paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox and come with three driving modes - Eco, City and Sport. 

    The three-cylinder petrol motor is a quiet performer; however, its modest power output means it ends up struggling at times to pull the Nexon’s heft. Peak torque is available from just below 2,000rpm but peak power doesn’t come in until 5,500rpm, meaning that you have got to rev that motor more than you would economically like to zip along with traffic. The power delivery isn’t exactly linear either because of some flat spots around mid-range. Also, the engine feels extremely dull and unresponsive in Eco mode when it’s not on boost. That said, you can get around it by switching to Sport mode wherein throttle response is noticeably better. All said, we ended up driving the Nexon petrol in Sport throughout the testing period. In the latter mode, it’s not sluggish in any way, nor is it a hurried car. If you like driving in a relaxed manner then the Nexon petrol will suit.

    While the petrol powered version is nice and quiet, the Nexon is best served with the turbo diesel motor. The latter is simply effortless in its performance (thanks to the extra torque) and surprisingly refined. The motor, in fact, delivers torque in a linear way with just a hint of turbo lag below 1,600rpm. On boost, it pulls hard all the way till 4,200rpm without ever sounding coarse. There is no denying that it becomes noisy at higher revs but it does feel more refined than the Brezza’s motor. However, we would like to add that our test car’s engine, though smoother, kept making weird noises, especially after continuous hard pull. Meanwhile, the 6-speed gearbox is equally good when it comes to the shift action, but the clutch pedal is springy and you can never really gauge the bite point. 

    Strapped to our timing gear, the Nexon posted some quick times, with 0-100kmph coming up in 12.73 seconds. It does 20-80kmph in third in just 9.89 seconds and takes 12.02 seconds to accelerate from 40-100kmph in fourth, resulting in significantly quicker roll-on times compared to its arch rival, the Vitara Brezza. The Nexon has even got different drive modes that alter throttle response to favour economy or performance. In Eco mode, it accelerates in a fairly leisurely manner, taking nearly 19 seconds to hit 100kmph. The petrol Nexon proved to be marginally slower flat-out, taking 13.02 seconds to hit 100kmph. 

    Ride and Handling

    The Nexon holds its composure in a straight line, however, it isn’t exactly fun when the going gets twisty. It’s steering is pretty much dead on-centre and generally feels vague. Sure, its chunky tires offer immense grip and it’s fairly stable around the corners, but the Nexon doesn’t like to be chucked around – it’s tall stance and heft means it suffers from body roll and slow turn-ins. 

    As for the ride quality, the low speed ride is remarkably plush and absorbent with a nice, soft edge over rippled surfaces. Like most large Tata cars, the Nexon deals with high frequency bumps nicely and even if you hit large potholes they don’t transmit into the cabin. Once up to speed, the Nexon is comfortable and quiet, with little wind and tyre noise entering the cabin while the suspension irons out the lumps and bumps nicely. Now because it’s softly sprung (which gives it immense ability to absorb bumps at low speeds), there is slightly more vertical movement than we would have liked at high speeds, but it’s no deal breaker. 

    Price and Fuel Economy

    Tata is offering the Nexon in five trim levels – XE, XM, XT, XZ Plus and XZ Plus Dual Tone. The petrol range is priced between Rs 5.87 lakhs and Rs 8.62 lakhs while the diesel range is priced between Rs 6.87 lakhs and Rs 9.47 lakhs. In comparison, the Vitara Brezza costs between Rs 7.30 and Rs 9.94 lakhs. 

    The Nexon diesel delivered 13.9kmpl and 18.7kmpl in city and highway conditions respectively. Predictably, the petrol powered version used up more fuel, delivering 10.03kmpl and 14.1kmpl under similar conditions.

        • Engine & Transmission

          • Engine
            1497 cc, 4 Cylinders Inline, 4 Valves/Cylinder, DOHC

            Timely services will keep a motor efficient and in top shape.

          • Engine Type
            1.5 LTurbocharged Revotorq Engine

            The official title given by the manufacturer in terms of the name of the engine, the displacement and the number of cylinders.

            A bigger displacement and more than four-cylinders generally indicate a performance-oriented engine.

          • Fuel Type

            All cars in India either run on petrol, diesel, CNG, LPG or electric power.

          • Max Power (bhp@rpm)
            108 bhp @ 3750 rpm

            Gives a good idea of the performance of the vehicle under full thrust. A higher figure here usually means a higher top speed as well.

            Higher the power, the peppier the engine but it can also affect fuel economy.

          • Max Torque (Nm@rpm)
            260 Nm @ 1500 rpm

            Relates to in-gear acceleration. A higher figure here means better roll-on acceleration, fewer gear shifts, and possibly better fuel efficiency.

            The more torque at low RPM range makes the engine feel more responsive. It also allows the engine to run smoothly without too many gear changes.

          • Mileage (ARAI)
            23.97 kmpl

            This is the maximum fuel efficiency that an engine gives. All numbers are provided by the manufacturer based on tests conducted and specified by the standards of the ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India)

            Such fuel efficiency attained while driving in special conditions makes it unlikely to get it in real-world conditions

          • Drivetrain

            Cars come with different drivetrain configurations depending on the segment.

            Front-wheel drive (FWD) is most common in mainstream cars while expensive cars or SUVs come with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

          • Transmission
            Manual - 6 Gears

            Type of transmission used to transfer power from the engine to the wheels

            A manually operated transmission is the most popular type, thanks to its simplicity and low cost. Varied types of automatic transmissions are also available.

          • Emission Standard
            BS 4

            Set by the Indian Government, this governs the amount of air pollutants released by cars to make the atmosphere safer for humans.

          • Turbocharger / Supercharger

            Manufacturers today offer turbochargers to boost engine power without affecting its fuel economy. Superchargers are found in more expensive cars but on the downside, they are not very efficient.

            Turbochargers are more effective but require plenty of heat management. Superchargers, meanwhile, offer linear bump in power but they are comparatively more complex.

        • Dimensions & Weight

          • Length
            3994 mm

            The length of the car decides its segment. In India, cars that are less than 4 metres in length enjoy reduced excise duties.

            • Length: 3994

            Longer length results in more cabin space. It also adds to straight line stability.

          • Width
            1811 mm

            A car's width is defined as its widest point without its mirrors.

            • Width: 1811

            Although more width gives you more lateral space inside the cabin, it makes the car more difficult to park in narrow spots.

          • Height
            1607 mm

            The height of the car denotes the highest point of the vehicle from the ground.

            • Height: 1607

            Taller the car, the more headroom there is on offer inside the cabin. However, a tall boy stance also affect the car’s centre of gravity which can cause more body roll.

          • Wheelbase
            2498 mm

            The space between the center of the front and rear wheels.

            • Wheelbase: 2498

            The longer the wheelbase, the more space there is inside the cabin.

          • Ground Clearance
            209 mm

            It’s the space between the lowest point of the car and the ground.

            Ground Clearance
            • Ground Clearance: 209

            If the car has a good amount of clearance, it’s easier for it to clear big speed breakers and overall, deal with bad roads.

        • Capacity

          • Doors
            5 Doors

            The number of doors define the category of car. For example – four door means sedan, two-door means coupe while five-doors usually refer to a hatchback, MPV or an SUV.

            • Doors: 5
          • Seating Capacity
            5 Person

            The number of people that can be seated comfortably in the car, which has also been mandated by the car manufacturer.

          • No of Rows
            2 Rows

            Smaller cars usually have two rows which can seat five, but some SUVs and MPVs have three rows and can seat around 7-8 passengers.

          • Bootspace
            350 litres

            Boot space defines how practical the car is with respect to how much luggage it can carry.

            • Bootspace: 350

            A boot with a large and wide opening is ideal for loading heavy items. Additionally, a lower loading height also makes it easy to put in luggage.

          • Fuel Tank Capacity
            44 litres

            The official volume of the fuel tank of a car, usually denoted in litres.

            If a car has a large fuel tank, it can cover long distances without refuelling.

        • Suspensions, Brakes, Steering & Tyres

          • Front Suspension
            Independent McPherson Dual-path Strut with Coil Spring

            Almost all cars in India use an independent front suspension which is usually the MacPherson Strut type.

          • Rear Suspension
            Twist Beam with Coil Spring and Shock Absorber

            The rear suspension can either be non-independent or independent.

            Most of the budget cars have non-independent suspension while the more expensive ones get independent rear suspension which offers better bump absorption.

          • Front Brake Type

            Most of the vehicles sold in India get ventilated or non-ventilated disc brakes upfront.

            - The ventilated discs are more popular thanks to them providing better stopping power and it also works well in hot conditions.

          • Rear Brake Type

            In affordable cars, drums brakes are fitted at the rear as they are cost effective.

            Disc setup at the rear is now getting more popular as cars are getting faster in the real world.

          • Minimum Turning Radius
            5.1 metres

            The official kerb-to-kerb minimum radius a car takes to complete a 180-degree turn.

            Shorter the turning radius, the lesser space you need to make a tight turn or to take a U-turn.

          • Steering Type
            Power assisted (Electric)

            Almost all steering systems in cars today have an assist to help park them better at low speeds - these can be hydraulic, electro-hydraulic or electric.

          • Wheels
            Alloy Wheels

            The wheels used on cars are either steel rims with plastic wheel cover hub or alloy wheels on higher spec models or expensive cars.

            Razor cut, or diamond cut alloy wheel design are not getting more popular. Manufacturers usually offer these in top-end trim of their car models.

          • Spare Wheel

            Important in a country with varying quality of roads, spare wheels ensure one doesn’t get stranded when one of the main tyres gets damaged.

            Select premium car models feature space savers (smaller than the stock wheels) to save on boot space.

          • Front Tyres
            215 / 60 R16

            The profile/dimension of rubber tyre that fits on the front wheels.

          • Rear Tyres
            215 / 60 R16

            The profile/dimension of rubber tyre that fits on the rear wheels.


        • Safety

          • Overspeed Warning

            Mandatory safety system for cars sold in India, a single beep is emitted after 80kmph and continuous ones after 120kmph

          • NCAP Rating

            The official crash test safety rating given to a car by one of the many testing agencies around the world

          • Airbags
          • Rear Middle Three Point seatbelt

            Safer three-point seatbelts for passengers seated in the middle of the second row of seats.

            Budget cars are usually fitted with more economical lap belts for the middle-occupant.

          • Rear Middle Head Rest

            A headrest for the middle occupant of the second-row of seats.

            Budget cars are usually not offered with headrests for the middle occupant of the second-row to save on costs. Headrests are instrumental in reducing whiplash injuries in case of an accident

          • Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

            A digital gauge that provides the live status of the air pressure in every tyre of a car.

            For accurate readings, ensure that the sensors on the rim are not tampered with during any wheel/tyre repairs

          • Child Seat Anchor Points

            Anchor points or strap systems built into car seats to keep child seats in place, especially during a crash

            ISOFIX is an international standard for child seat anchor points, but not all car manufacturers follow this standard

          • Seat Belt Warning

            Mandatory fitment in cars sold in India, emits loud beeps when it detects that occupants are not wearing their seatbelts.

            Seat belt warning is mandatory for front-seat occupants, but it is recommended that all occupants wear seat belts.

        • Braking & Traction

          • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

            An electronic system that prevents the tyres from locking and skidding in emergency braking situations by pulsing the brakes (quickly releasing and reapplying the brakes)

            ABS is a great accident prevention technology, allowing drivers to steer while braking hard

          • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)

            An electronic system that redirects braking forces among the four brakes to stop the car as quickly and stably as possible

          • Brake Assist (BA)

            A system that increases brake pressure to help the car stop quicker

            Even when emergency braking, it is observed that drivers don’t apply maximum brake pressure through the pedal, the BA system provides additional pressure to help stop the car quicker

          • Electronic Stability Program (ESP)

            System designed to improve car stability and control, especially when the car is accelerating.

            ESP or ESC cannot increase traction but rather improve control or help regain control in slippery conditions.

          • Four-Wheel-Drive

            A system that sends the car's power to all the four wheels at the same time

          • Hill Hold Control

            A feature that prevents the car from rolling backwards when stopped on a slope

          • Traction Control System (TC/TCS)

            This system cuts power to those wheels that are spinning without grip/traction

            Given the option, keep traction control on all the time.

          • Hill Descent Control

            A feature that limits the car's speed without any driver input while traversing down descents

          • Limited Slip Differential (LSD)

            This function prevents wheelspin and maximises traction by shuffling torque between wheels

            It is also a nifty safety feature since it offers more control over a vehicle's power delivery

          • Differential Lock

            Locking differentials split power/torque evenly among both tyres on an axle.

            In off-road vehicles, locking differentials allows for better traction when one of the wheels is in the air, in FWD/AWD cars allows for better corner traction and in RWD sports cars allows for drifting around corners.

        • Locks & Security

          • Engine Immobiliser

            A security device that prevents the engine from being started unless the key is present

          • Central Locking

            This feature let's one unlock all the doors remotely or with a key

          • Speed Sensing Door Lock

            This feature automatically locks the car's doors when it reaches a preset speed

            A convenient feature for those who can't remember to lock the doors
