Tata Motors has rolled out the 100,000th unit of the Nexon compact SUV from its manufacturing facility in Ranjangaon, Pune. The company has thus managed to achieve the 1 lakh production milestone for the Nexon in just 22 months since its official launch in the country. The 100,000th unit was finished in the Moroccan Blue colour scheme.
The Nexon’s popularity is a result of multiple factors. First up, it is undoubtedly the most value-for-money compact SUV that you can buy in the Indian market. At a time when the Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300 manage to touch the Rs. 12 lakh price tag for their respective top-end versions, the Nexon manages to cut the right ends from its feature list to make sure it is priced aggressively. Also, the fact that the Nexon managed to become the first 5-star rated compact SUV in the safety department does inspire some buyer confidence.
Powering the Tata Nexon is a 1.2-litre turbo petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel. Both engines develop 110 hp, with the latter being more torquey. They also come with the same transmission options – a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed AMT automatic.
Tata has also equipped the Nexon with state-of-the-art features and technology like steering-mounted audio controls, automatic climate control, reverse parking camera with guidelines, rear AC vents, an 8-speaker audio system from Harman, and free-standing 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Priced in the range of Rs. 6.58 lakh to Rs. 10.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Tata Nexon competes against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300, and Hyundai Venue.
