Tata Nexon

The new power-trains-a 1.2L petrol from the Revotron series and a 1.5L diesel engine from the Revotorq family, are performance-oriented and offer higher fuel efficiency and performance.

Ahead of its impending launch, Tata Motors has teased the Nexon compact SUV and released the first set of details which is set to be launched in a couple of months. On the torque front, the 1.5 diesel develops maximum torque of 260 Nm at 1500-2750rpm and the 1.2 petrol outputs 170Nm at 2000-4000rpm. With the launch lined up for around the festive season this year, Tata Motors has announced the engine specifications on its all-new offering. Both these engines will get the multi drive modes - Eco, City, and Sport, which are present in Tata's other modern day cars as well.

We expect the petrol engine to deliver about 85 PS power & 114 Nm torque and diesel engine to deliver about 110 PS. Transmission options expected are 5 speed MT for petrol, 6 speed MT for diesel and AMT.

Both the engines have been developed indigenously with inputs from global technology suppliers like AVL, Bosch, Mahle and Honeywell.

First showcased as a concept at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, its dimensions in production-ready guise will be similar to that of the concept. The Revotron engine will be manufactured at the Sanand facility while the Revotorq engine will be produced at the Ranjangaon facility.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, "To introduce this all new SUV into the market, we are not leaving any stone unturned".

"Both these engines have been designed and developed after extensive feedback from auto enthusiasts, expert drivers, followed by extensive testing across India, on different terrains", he said. The Revotron engine will be manufactured in Sanand, Gujarat, while the Ranjangaon factory near Pune will build the new diesel engine.

The Nexon will take on the likes of the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti Vitara Brezza, both being popular contenders in the sub-four-metre compact SUV segment.
