What Are The Pros And Cons Of Tata Nexon Petrol?

The pros or advantages of Tata Nexon petrol are:

  • Value for money starting price for the Smart variant
  • A fairly wide and tall body gives it a great road presence
  • Best-in-class ground clearance of 208mm
  • 6 airbags are now standard along with other safety features like ESC, HSA, traction control and LED headlamps
  • Even the base model variant doesn’t instantly come across as the basic because of the LED headlamps, LED DRLs, connected tail lamps and new, 2-spoke steering with backlit Tata logo
  • Gets option of manual, AMT automatic and DCT automatic transmissions; if you also factor in the 5-speed manual, then the Nexon has 4 transmission options to choose from
  • Gets a good number of features for its class in the top variant

The Tata Nexon petrol has the following shortcomings or problems:

  • Several basic features are missing in the lower and mid-spec variants; for example, front and rear armrests only available in Fearless and its derivatives, height-adjustable driver seat in Creative and higher trims
  • No true value for money variant; no variant justifies the incremental cost over the base variant with the additional features
  • Lower trims get a 5-speed manual transmission for no apparent reason besides encouraging buyers to go for a higher variant with fatter profit margins
  • Missing features like 360-degree camera, side thorax and curtain airbags — addressed by Tata with 2023 model update
  • Overall, the variant-powertrain lineup is quite confusing and we don’t have have the ‘special’ editions on sale yet
  • Horrible communication strategy is leaving buyers confused as there are several mismatches in features based on when and where you source your information

Tata Nexon Petrol Smart - Base Model Features

Some of the features you might miss in the Nexon base model are:

  • Music system
  • Steering-mounted controls
  • Rear power windows
  • Power mirrors
  • Wheel covers
  • 6-speed manual transmission
  • Body-coloured door handles
  • Day/night inside mirror

Even though the base variant of the Nexon doesn't get a bunch of must-have features, it is the most value for money variant in the entire lineup. If you are on a strict budget and don't mind adding a few aftermarket accessories, then the Nexon Smart is a fantastic choice. More so, because the higher Smart Plus and Smart Plus (S) variants offer incredibly poor value for money.

The Smart Plus variant also gets the same petrol engine with the 5-speed manual transmission and costs Rs. 9.10 lakh, which is Rs. 1.0 lakh more than the base model. The Smart Plus (S) costs another Rs. 60,000 and carries an ex-showroom price of Rs. 9.70 lakh.

  • Rear parcel tray

The Smart Plus and Smart Plus (S) variants offer pathetic value for money while also greatly compromising on the value front. So, we strongly advise against buying either of these.

Pure variant onwards, the Nexon gets a 6-speed manual transmission instead of the 5-speed manual. The Pure variant costs Rs. 60,000 more than the Smart Plus and carries an ex-showroom price of Rs. 9.70 lakh. The Pure (S) costs Rs. 10.20 lakh, which is another Rs. 50,000 more expensive than the Pure.

  • Rear camera
  • Rear washer wiper
  • Rear defogger
  • Rear parcel tray

Even the Pure and Pure (S) variants maintain the status quo like the lower Smart Plus and Smart Plus (S). Instead of compromising greatly on the value as well as on the features front, we’ll suggest you either go for the base trim or stretch some for a higher variant.

Tata Nexon Petrol Pure vs Creative Variant - Features Comparison

Besides the manual, the Creative variant also gets a 6-speed AMT automatic and a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission options. The Creative manual costs Rs. 11.0 lakh, which is Rs. 1.30 lakh more than the Pure manual. The AMT automatic costs Rs. 70,000 more than the manual while the DCT automatic costs Rs. 1.20 lakh more than the manual.

  • Cruise control
  • Front armrest
  • Rear armrest
  • Split-folding rear seatbacks
  • Rear defogger
  • Rear parcel tray

Even the Creative variant doesn’t get a few features we consider must-have at this price point from a car of this class. Still, if you can manage without them, then the Creative variant is as good as it gets in terms of value. From here, the value ranking further deteriorates considerably.

Tata Nexon Petrol Creative vs Creative Plus/Creative Plus (S) Variant - Features Comparison

The Nexon Creative Plus petrol also retains the 3 transmission options and it is Rs. 70,000 more expensive than the lower Creative variant. The Creative Plus (S) with the sunroof is another Rs. 50,000 more expensive and it too gets all 3 transmission options.

  • Split rear seatbacks

Even Creative Plus and Creative Plus (S) trims don’t get a rear defogger and armrests (front, rear). Still, if you want the cruise control, then you can go with this variant. Please note that it offers worse value for money than the lower vanilla Creative option, which already is a compromise of sorts in terms of value for money.

Tata Nexon Petrol Creative Plus vs Fearless/Fearless (S) Variant - Features Comparison

Fearless variant drops the AMT automatic transmission but retains the manual and the DCT. The Fearless costs Rs. 12.50 lakh with the manual and Rs. 13.70 lakh (ex-showroom) with the automatic transmission. These prices are Rs. 80,000 more than the lower Creative Plus variant with comparable transmission options. The Fearless (S) with the sunroof is Rs. 50,000 more expensive than the Fearless non-S. It costs Rs. 13.0 lakh with the manual and Rs. 14.20 lakh with the manual.

The Fearless variant seems to offer the most well-rounded experience without any compromises in terms of missing features. But it’s again a terrible value for money option. Therefore, we will recommend against buying the Fearless and Fearless (S) variants.

The Fearless Plus variant costs Rs. 13.0 lakh with the manual and Rs. 14.20 lakh with the DCT automatic. It’s Rs. 50,000 more expensive than the lower Fearless variant. For another Rs. 50,000, you can get the Fearless Plus S variant, which gets a few extra features besides the sunroof, but only if you buy it with the automatic transmission. With the manual, you only get the sunroof for the additional Rs. 50,000.

While the top model of the Nexon 2023 is pretty well loaded and it’s difficult to find fault with it. Still, if we have to nitpick, we’d say that considering the competition like the Venue, we wish it had a telescopic steering, some ADAS features and a power-adjustable driver seat.

As far as buying recommendation goes, the Fearless Plus is where we once again see the value equation slightly tilting away from terrible to just poor. With the automatic transmission, it offers better value because of some exclusive features like JBL sound system and subwoofer.

Which Variant Of The Tata Nexon Petrol Should You Buy?

Among the petrol-manual variants of the Nexon, the choices are fairly straightforward. If you are okay with adding some aftermarket features, then the base Smart variant is a good choice. From there, the mid-spec Creative variant is a somewhat okay option even though it doesn’t completely justify the incremental cost over the base model. It is, after all, the 2nd most value for money variant of the Nexon. From there, the next variant worth considering is the Fearless Plus. Unfortunately, none of the variants of the Nexon earn our top recommendation. There’s either too much compromise in value or too much compromise in feature distribution or both.

If you have a bigger budget, then we suggest you go all out and buy the Fearless Plus (S) as it even gets exclusive features like the JBL sound system with subwoofer. It’s not available with the manual transmission even in the top trim.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Tata Nexon Petrol?

Compared to other turbo petrol B2-segment SUVs, the Nexon’s power and torque output are acceptable and towards the top of the class. However, the inclusion of 2 manual and 2 automatic transmission types with the same petrol engine could make it difficult for buyers to choose the most suitable powertrain combination.

Compared to the non-turbo petrol engines of the B2-segment SUVs, the Nexon turbo petrol has a better power and torque output. So, you can expect it to offer better drivability than non-turbo petrol engine SUVs.

    Your website is quite unique and built with passion, all the articles and videos are made with great understanding of Indian market and user base. It would be great while comparing if you put some aftermarket costs of the features for an end user to understand better.

    Very informative article. It seems XZ+/XZA+ (O) has been discontinued now. Tata have introduced XZ+/XZA+ (L) now. Could you please cover the same and provide your opinion whether it is worth to move to L variant from HS.
