The Tata Nexon AMT (Automatic) was launched sometime back. To counter it, Maruti launched an AMT version of the Vitara Brezza and became the most affordable automatic SUV in the country. However, Tata did not lose any time in matching up and it has now introduced the AMT in the mid-spec version, which is the XMA. The XMA starts at ₹ 7.50 lakhs for the petrol and ₹ 8.53 lakhs for the diesel (ex-showroom, Delhi), making it the most affordable automatic SUV in the country. All the AMT variants from the company are termed as Self-Shift Gears (S-SG). The Nexon Hyperdrive, as Tata Motors calls it, comes with few first time features for an AMT. The SUV gets three driving modes in the AMT version as well. This will be available in both petrol and diesel versions. Tata Motors have also introduced ‘IMAGINATOR’, which is an online platform to visualize and customize the Nexon. The bookings for the Tata Nexon AMT Hyprdrive are open since over a month. The deliveries will begin in this month.
We were the first to spot the Nexon with an AMT, much before the Nexon launch. Both petrol and diesel versions will get AMT. The Nexon has just added another feather in its cap by introducing an Automatic, that too before Maruti did with the Vitara Brezza. Tata Nexon has been selling well and is amongst the top ten selling SUVs in the country. The new Tata Nexon Automatic (AMT) in petrol and diesel will help Tata compete more fiercely with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport and Honda WRV. The Nexon AMT was also showcased at the Auto Expo 2018. Very soon it will be seen on our roads. Read further to know more about the Tata Nexon AMT.
