Tata Motors will be launching the Tata Nexon compact SUV this
festive season. The Nexon will take on the big guns of the compact SUV segment
and Tata has equipped it with two new performance oriented engines from its
powertrain portfolio. Powering the Nexon will be a 1.2L turbocharged petrol
engine from the Revotron series and a 1.5L diesel mill from the Revotorq family
The name Nexon has been derived from 'Next-On' signifying a next
level of things. The Nexon compact SUV has been designed by Tata's in-house
facility in Pune while the new engines have been indigenously developed using
inputs from global technology suppliers -- AVL, Bosch, Mahale and Honeywell.
Tata's Revotron engine will be manufactured at their Sanand facility while the
Revotorq engine will be produced at the Ranjangaon facility.
The new engines will also come
with multi drive modes -- Eco, City and Sport. The Eco mode has been created to
cater to a relaxed driving experience also delivering better fuel economy. The
City driving mode has been tuned to deliver a perfect balance of power and
torque to ensure smooth city driving. Sport mode is for a better throttle
response and a more jaunty drive experience. Tata has designed these new engines
to be light weight and low on friction.
