Tata showcased the Nexon AMT at the Auto Expo in February, 2018. And now, a couple of months later, the Indian carmaker is set to launch the automatic version of the sub-4m SUV in India. The Nexon will get a 6-speed AMT which will be available with both petrol and diesel engines.
The gearbox is a 6-speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) and the compact SUV will get multi-drive modes – ECO, CITY, and SPORT.
The Nexon AMT also gets the creep function, which basically makes the car move forward without any accelerator input with the gear stick in ‘D’ mode.
In terms of pricing, expect a premium of about Rs 50,000 over the current top-spec models – the XZ+ petrol (with the dual-tone finish) retails at Rs 9.02 lakh while the XZ+ diesel costs Rs 9.89 lakh (all-prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
