S-SG comes with a ground clearance of 209 mm.
Extensively loaded with features, the car is equipped with an
intelligent transmission controller, which includes features such as
anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off; helping optimize the automatic gearshifts
to provide best power output during overtaking maneuvers or quick acceleration
requirements. This combined with 110PS power output from turbocharged motors

to wear their car key smartly as a wristband and enjoy hassle-free access and
ignition of the Nexon.

the SUV provides standard safety features like dual frontal airbags and ABS
with electronic brake-force distribution in all wheels, to ensure peace of mind
while enjoying a spirited drive. The spacious cabin along with a 350L boot
space and rear 60:40 seat split to store extra luggage, makes it a complete
package for long distance trips.

image viewing options.
