The company has introduced a mid-spec, AMT-equipped Nexon XMA, which is priced at Rs 7.50 lakh for the petrol and Rs 8.53 lakh for the diesel. The six-speed automated manual transmission and the 110hp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel powertrains remain unchanged.
The AMT gearbox features a manual mode and a crawl function as well. You can also choose to get an optional new white contrast finish for the roof. Kit is the same as the manual XM trim and includes dual frontal airbags, ABS with EBD, wheel covers for the steel wheels, an infotainment system by Harman with USB, Aux and Bluetooth connectivity, four speakers, steering-mounted audio controls, rear parking sensors, follow-me-home headlamps, all four power windows, central locking and power-adjustable outside rear-view mirrors.
The XMA variant also gets 60:40-split folding seats, but it misses out on some kit - projector headlamps, daytime running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, an automatic climate control system, the Harman-sourced touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto compatibility and the rear wash, wiper and defogger – all of which are available on the top-spec XZA+ variant.
