Currently, the AMT is only available in one single top-spec XZA+ trim, priced at Rs 9.41 lakh for the petrol and Rs 10.3 lakh for the diesel (ex-showroom, Delhi). The carmaker is now looking at introducing the AMT gearbox in the mid-spec XTA and XMA variants to make the automatic option more affordable.
The upcoming Nexon AMT (XMA and XZA) will have the same features as their manual versions (XM and XZ). The XMA gets dual-tone wheel covers, remote-control locking, power windows for all doors, an infotainment system with 4 speakers, steering-mounted controls for audio, phone and voice, a 12V power outlet, an MID with a real-time fuel indicator and rear parking sensors. The AMT XZA will have the same features as the top-end XZA+ variant, but won’t get the PEPS smartkey with push-button start, DRLs, alloy wheels, a 60:40-split folding rear seat, front and rear fog lamps and a rear defogger. The XMA and XZA also get smart hill-assist and the creep function.
The XMA and the XZA variants will come in both engine options – the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel. The lower-spec XMA variants could cost Rs 7.51 lakh for the AMT, mated to the petrol engine and Rs 8.54 lakh for the diesel. The higher-spec XZA versions may be priced at Rs 8.59 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 9.69 lakh for the diesel (All expected prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
