Silently Tata introduced a new XZ+(S) trim standard to the line-up of the Nexon. Prices for the latest version start for the petrol manual at Rs 10.10 lakh. And so the diesel manual model at Rs 11.60 lakh. The automatics (XZA+(S)) are rated respectively from Rs 10.70 lakh, and Rs 12.20 lakh.
The pricing makes the latest XZ+ (S) about Rs 60,000 more expensive than the XZ+ trim standard but about Rs 30 000 more economical than the XZ(O) trim that is fully loaded.
The S has some notable additional features over the XZ+. With the inclusion of an electric sunroof, which was previously exclusive to the XZ(O) cover. And is one of the most prominent. Other XZ(O) trim hardware, including the leather-wrapped gear-knob and steering, tire pressure sensor, auto headlamps and wipers, cruise control and an Xpress cool feature for the climate control system, also find their way into the new model. However, the company’s connected-car platform remains limited to the XZ(O) trims fully loaded.
Offered engine choices include a pair of 1,2-liter turbo-petrol and 1,5-liter diesel engines compatible with BS6. Each equipped with a 6-speed manual or AMT gearbox option.
Adding a sunroof to a lower model could give the Nexon an extra boost in the market. Particularly considering the feature’s popularity among Indian buyers. The Nexon facelift runs up against the iconic Hyundai Venue. The newly introduced facelift of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and the Mahindra XUV300.
