WHICH VARIANT TO BUY?

Which Variant of 2020 Tata Nexon Petrol Most Value for Money?

The base, XE variant of the 2020 Nexon facelift is a great value for money considering the following 2 things

  • it doesn't look like a base variant
    • projector headlamps
    • LED tail lamps
    • LED DRLs
  • It gets most of the safety features of the top variants and has 5-star Global NCAP
    • HSA
    • ESC
    • Traction control
    • ABS
    • Parking sensors
    • 2 airbags
    • ISOFIX

The only feature missing is a rear camera, which you can easily add later. It also gets 16-inch wheels with pretty wide 195-section tyres. More importantly, the XM and the XZ variants are overpriced for the features they offer. So, the XE variant is highly recommended for buyers on a budget or for those who are looking for a great value for money variant of the Nexon. Beware though, that there’s no standard music system slot in the Nexon XE variant. So, you may want to consider the XM or find an aftermarket solution that fits the music system slot.

The XM and the XZ variants don’t justify the price gap considering the additional features they add. So, we’d suggest you either get the XE variant and accessorize according to your preference or consider upgrading to the XZ Plus variant.

However, the introduction of XM (S) variant between the XM and XZ variant changes the equation a fair bit. The Nexon already looks fairly well decked out from the outside even in the base variant. The XM (S) adds the sunroof and almost completes the exterior style package. The only feature remaining then are the alloy wheels, which you can add later and give it a fully-loaded vibe from the outside.

Unfortunately, the XM (S) variant does not get many useful functional features. But, for what it offers, it’s a value for money package.

For decent value and a functional package, consider the XZ Plus variant, which is under Rs. 10 lakh. So you enjoy lower registration taxes in most states and a lower psychological barrier. Although it’s not the best VFM variant, it has a nice mix of functional and style features.

If you don’t want nice-to-have features like cruise control and electric sunroof, then this is the variant for you. But, if you want these features, then from an ex-showroom price POV, the XZ Plus (S) makes the most sense. It gets all the features of the XZ Plus (O) minus the telematics. This is our top recommended variant of the 2020 Nexon petrol facelift.

Consider the jump to XZ Plus (O) only if you find the additional price for Internet-connected features acceptable. We don’t. So, we’ll leave this decision in your hands.

Recommended for budget buyers 

XM

₹7,84,500

MT buyers should consider XE and accessorize. Style-conscious buyers should buy the XM (S) or XMA (S) as it delivers better value for money.

XM (S)

₹8,36,500

₹8,96,500

Better value for money than XM and perfect option for style-conscious buyers on a budget.

XZ

-

Not a value for money upgrade. Consider XZ Plus or a lower variant

XZ+

₹9,64,500

₹10,44,500

Good mix of must-have and feel-good features. Expensive upgrade from lower variants. This is the most affordable variant we’d recommend to buyers looking for a more functional feature package.

XZ+ (S)

₹10,24,500

₹10,84,500

Top recommended variant

XZ+ (O)

₹10,54,400

₹11,14,500

Up to buyers to decide

For buyers interested in the 2020 Nexon petrol with the automatic transmission, the XMA is worth considering as it not only gets most of the must-have features, it’s also more affordable than the higher variants. If you want a sunroof, the XMA (S) is as good as it gets. It takes the style quotient to the next level.

The XZA Plus will cost a lot more in terms of on-road pricing as in most states it’ll carry a much higher registration fee (>Rs. 10 lakh ex-showroom price).

If you don’t mind crossing the Rs. 10 lakh barrier, then consider the XZA Plus (S) instead. It offers better value for money and most of the top variants for a lower price. The XZA Plus (S) is our top recommended automatic variant of the 2020 Nexon facelift. Just like the manual transmission, we leave the decision to upgrade to the XZA Plus (O) in your hands. The only additional feature it has over the XZA (S) is telematics and Internet connectivity.

Which Variant of 2020 Tata Nexon Diesel Most Value for Money?

If you don’t mind the Rs. 1.5 lakh price jump for the diesel engine, then the base, XE variant of the 2020 Nexon facelift is a great value for money considering the following 2 things:

  • it doesn't look like a base variant
    • projector headlamps
    • LED tail lamps
    • LED DRLs
  • It gets most of the safety features of the top variants and has 5-star Global NCAP rating
    • HSA
    • ESC
    • Traction control
    • ABS
    • Parking sensors
    • 2 airbags
    • ISOFIX

The only feature missing is a rear camera, which you can easily add later. It also gets 16-inch wheels with pretty wide 195-section tyres. More importantly, the XM and the XZ variants are overpriced for the features they offer. So, the XE variant is highly recommended for buyers on a budget or for those who are looking for a great value for money variant of the Nexon. Beware though, that you’ll have to find a compatible music system for this as it doesn’t have a standard slot for an aftermarket music player.

However, the introduction of the XM (S) variant between XM and XZ changes the equation a fair bit. The Nexon already looks fairly well decked out from the outside even in the base variant. The XM (S) adds the sunroof and almost completes the exterior style package. The only feature remaining then are the alloy wheels, which you can add later and give it a fully-loaded vibe from the outside.

For buyers interested in the 2020 Nexon diesel with the automatic transmission, the XMA is worth considering as it not only gets most of the must-have features, it’s also under Rs. 10 lakh. So, lower taxes in most states. 
Style-conscious buyers should get the XMA (S) variant if the on-road price difference is justified. The on-road price jump to the XZA Plus diesel is quite high but almost worth it.

The XZA Plus (S) is our top recommended variant and the most value for money option too. We leave the decision to upgrade to the XZA Plus (O) in your hands. The only additional feature it has over the XZA (S) is telematics and Internet connectivity.
