The Tata Nexon SUV has been spotted testing with a Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS) mounted to the back of the compact-SUV. The test mule was spotted in Pune and was completely undisguised.
As per the images posted by Rushlane, along with the Nexon SUV, the upcoming seven-seater Tata Gravitas has also been spotted testing. the company could launch a new powerful variant of its Nexon compact-SUV in the Indian market. Based on some previous reports, Tata Motors could introduce a new DCT transmission option on the Nexon for the 2021 Model Year.
The new transmission is expected to be offered with the petrol version of the compact-SUV. It could also possibly have a more powerful turbo-petrol engine. However, the outgoing model of the Nexon is offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. One is a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine producing 108bhp of power and 170Nm of peak torque.
While on the other hand, there is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine churning out 108bhp of power and 260Nm of peak torque. Both the engines are offered with either a standard six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed AMT automatic gearbox unit. The compact-SUV also features three driving modes to choose from ‘Eco', ‘City', and ‘Sport'.
Speaking a bit about the Tata Gravitas, it is essentially an extended seven-seater version of the Harrier SUV. The new Gravitas is said to be 63mm longer and 80mm taller than the Harrier while retaining the same 2741mm wheelbase. This extension in dimensions on the Gravitas allows it to accommodate a third-row of seating.
Powering the Tata Gravitas is the same 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine, which does duty on the Harrier. The engine will also produce identical power and torque figures of 172bhp of power and 350Nm of peak torque. The engine will further come mated to either a six-speed manual or torque-converter automatic transmission unit.
