Tata Motors has officially started accepting bookings for the upcoming Nexon AMT. With the launch of the Tata Nexon AMT to be held sometime in May 2018, booking for the SUV can now be made across all Tata Dealerships for an amount of Rs 11,000.
The Tata Nexon AMT was first unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo and is the first sub-four-metre compact SUV offering from Tata Motors. The new AMT transmission will initially be available only on the top-end XZA+ variant of the Nexon.
The Nexon XZA+ variant will carry forward all the features of the top-end manual XZ+ trim. Additional features on the AMT include Smart Hill Assist, Crawl Function and an Intelligent Transmission Controller with anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off.
The Nexon AMT is similar to its manual variants in all aspects, with only the new badge and the option of a new paint scheme, Etna Orange with a Sonic Silver dual-tone roof, to help differentiate between them.
According to Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors,"Since its launch in 2017, the Tata Nexon has set new benchmarks in India's fastest growing SUV segment and has been one of the most appreciated products from the house of Tata Motors."
He further added, "With the AMT market in India thriving, we are all set to leverage this opportunity by introducing our Level Nex star player on the pitch - the Nexon with HyprDrive Self-Shift Gears."
He also mentioned, "This car has been one of the most awaited products in the AMT segment and we are confident that this product will not only be high on convenience but will also thrill the customers with its sporty drive performance. We look forward to introducing many more such path-breaking products in the near future."
The new six-speed AMT gearbox from Tata Motors comes mated to both the 1.5-litre Revotron petrol and the 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engines. Both engines produce 108.5bhp with 170Nm and 260Nm of torque respectively. The engine gets three different drive modes: Eco, City and Sport as standard.
The AMT transmission can also be used in a manual mode, which once engaged shifts the drive mode automatically into sport.
