Tata Motors has commenced the advanced bookings for the upcoming Nexon AMT version. Interested customers can book the subcompact SUV at a token amount of Rs 11,000 at all the Tata Motors’ authorized dealerships across the country. The automaker had showcased the Nexon AMT at the Auto Expo 2018 and since then the speculations regarding the launch has been making rounds in the market. However, the launch date is still not confirmed but since Tata Motors has commenced the advanced bookings for the Nexon AMT, it is expected to be launched soon.
Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, "Since its launch in 2017, the Tata Nexon has set new benchmarks in India's fastest growing SUV segment and has been one of the most appreciated products from the house of Tata Motors. With the AMT market in India thriving, we are all set to leverage this opportunity by introducing our Level Nex star player on the pitch - the Nexon with HyprDrive Self-Shift Gears. This car has been one of the most awaited products in the AMT segment and we are confident that this product will not only be high on convenience but will also thrill the customers with its sporty drive performance. We look forward to introducing many more such path breaking products in the near future."
In terms of looks, features and designs the Nexon AMT looks identical to the standard Nexon. According to the company, the Nexon AMT is the first car in India to offer driving modes along with an AMT unit. Also, it gets additional 'creep' function, which helps with the driving in heavy traffic, the stop-and-go kinds. Smart hill assist which keeps the car from rolling back when it begins to move on a slope and an intelligent transmission controller which offers features such as anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off are the other features to be offered with the upcoming Tata Nexon AMT. The company also claims that the variant is the first AMT in India to have multi-drive modes Eco, City and Sport in automatic transmission.
Tata Motors introduced the Nexon in 2017 and since then it has reached a production milestone of 25,000 units just last month. This led the automaker think about introducing the automatic version of the first subcompact SUV by Tata Motors. In terms of pricing, the upcoming Tata Nexon is expected to carry a pricing somewhere between Rs 7 lakh to Rs 10 lakh for the petrol and diesel options. Currently, the car is on sale at prices starting at Rs 5.85 lakh for petrol and Rs 6.85 lakh for diesel variants. However, Tata Motors later launched the petrol variants of the Nexon XZ priced from Rs 7.99 lakh while the diesel versions are tagged from Rs 8.99 lakh, all prices ex-showroom, India. One more thing to notice is that the automaker is likely to offer the AMT option from mid-trim upwards.
Expected to be launched in early May this year, the subcompact SUV will take against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Ford Ecosport and the upcoming Mahindra TUV 300. Stay tuned to V3cars.com for launch updates of the upcoming Tata Nexon AMT.
