A test vehicle of the Tata Nexon has been spotted at a hill station during testing. This is the first time a camouflaged prototype has been seen. There were reports and speculation that the Tata Nexon facelift would feature the Impact Design 2.0 philosophy that made it's debut in the Tata Harrier, the Tata Altroz, and the H2X.
However, it seems unlikely because the vehicle spotted has the same front fascia and side profile of the current generation. The test vehicle was also seen sporting 16-inch silver machine cut alloy wheels that are seen on the to end variants of the Tata Nexon. According to GaadiWaadi, this prototype could be testing a BS-VI compliant 1.2-litre Revotron petrol or a 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engine.
BS-VI emission rule will be enforced in less than a year, and auto manufacturers are racing to make all their portfolios BS-VI complaint. Some manufacturers have already made announcements that they will stop production and sales of cars with smaller diesel engines because of costs involved in upgrading the.
The upgrades will have a big impact on the sub-10 lakh segments of the auto industry. Companies will have to make changes to the engines and still keep prices close to what they are now. The Tata Nexon is a very aggressively priced SUV and upgrading the oil burner to meet BS-VI emission norms will be quite a challenge for Tata.
New reports suggest that the Tata Altroz will initially be available only with a diesel engine. The vehicle will feature a de-tuned version of the 1.5-litre Revotorq engine that is seen on the Tata Nexon. However, the engine will produce about 90bhp of power and 210Nm of torque, and will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. A petrol variant is being planned for a later launch.
Maruti Suzuki has decided to phase out diesel engines from it's domestic portfolio, and Ford has confirmed that it will upgrade all it's diesel engines to meet the BS-VI norms. We expect Tata Motors to upgrade it's SUV portfolio as well as the Tata Blackbird that is scheduled for a 2021 launch.
Thoughts About The Tata Nexon Facelift Being Spotted
We can't help but agree that the only possible tests that Tata is currently doing is for an upgraded engine. However there are chances that the company might add cosmetic upgrades after they finish with and are satisfied with engine performances. Let's wait and watch.
