2018 Tata Nexon

Our car buying options do not get restricted within the new launches, as you are going to feel the same warmth, affection and comfort from a used car as well. Today, we have picked up a Tata Nexon that is 1 year old and whose odometer shows the car has been driven for 20,000 Kms only.

We thought reviewing a new car will be so much mainstream, why not explore a new segment of reviewing a used car in today’s perspective to find what it feels like owning a 2018’s Tata Nexon in 2019. So, we wanted to figure out whether anyone be eager to purchase this pre-owned car over a brand new or is it even worthy doing so? Let’s find out that.

Tata Motors has never ever left us disappointed in any segment of vehicles. It goes against the brand behavior of Tata that it does not come up with one offering in each segment at regular interval. It was also true two years back when Tiago, Hexa and Tigor – 3 cars were introduced in different segments. But, Nexon was not a car catered to a single segment, as it is a compact SUV.


The Nexon is not conventionally boxy as one has increasingly become accustomed to in the SUV and compact SUV design language. Instead, the designers attempted to incorporate the traditional squarish-frame of an SUV with the sleek and sloping lines of a sports car.

Tata had chosen to use chrome only in the front wayback- something which other manufacturers have now begun depending on extensively in their newer cars. Encompassed above the chrome line and between the headlights is the honeycomb grille which may be a take forward from some of Nexon's siblings and yet, sits well into the overall design philosophy.


The Nexon on the inside is defined as much by an upmarket feel as a spacious one. The large windows really help in giving the cabin a generous feel, and hence the commanding view mentioned previously. In addition, there is more than adequate space for four adults and a child for long drives in this car. The rear seats fare better in terms of cushioning and lumber support than the front seats which are a tad too stiff, and despite the stooping roofline, tall passengers at the back are not likely to feel confined. The rear seats also have a 60:40 split functionality which opens up more space in the trunk - already quite generous at 350 litres, much bigger than other competitors.

The biggest highlights of the car on the inside though are the premium quality of materials used and the plethora of creature comforts. The dash is made of decent plastics and it is easy to see just how many steps Tata Motors has taken forward in terms of their attention to detail.

There is an open sunglass holder with a velvet layer to prevent scratching. Then there is a really big dashboard which not only gets cooling feature but also a removable tray for food items. These are just some of the well-thought out additions - apart from the usual USB and AUX port, rear AC vents, folding rear arm rest etc., that make the Nexon's cabin stand out.

What also helps the cabin stand out is the floating infotainment system which is adequately responsive to touch. The Harman ConnectNext technology has been taken forward into this car and it does the job well. The screen also doubles up as a rear-view camera - and that's not just when the reverse gear is engaged.


The Nexon offered in two engine options - 1.2 L Turbocharged Revotron Petrol and 1.5 L Revotorq Diesel which are mated to a six-speed manual transmission box. And we have picked up a 1.5 L Revotorq Diesel Automatic version of 2018.

There are also three drive modes which add a customizable option to how the car moves. This is changed by a smart dial which sits just below the gearbox and every mode is accompanied by a colour scheme change on the infotainment display. So, City gets a blue theme, Eco gets green while Sports gets a red colour theme. By default, the last chosen mode is the starting mode when the car is next started.

We observed the used version and the new version is coming with the same specifications with some minor tweaking, which won’t hamper the style element, comfort factor, safety measures, design sharpness or the attractiveness.

After such a lengthy comparative study, we finally came to a conclusion. Actually, it was not that difficult as it was quite convenient decision. We think it will absolutely be great to choose an older version at Rs. 6.20 lakhs with a few missing features on and above the new Tata Nexon at Rs. 9.50 lakhs (on-road price). After hearing this you won’t be interested to buy the latest version of 2019.

There is no harm in purchasing a used car as far as you are aware of the real-time condition, history and fair market price of the car and enjoy the ride with ‘new-wali’ feeling in a used car. But, if you still want to explore something new with Tata Nexon, you can wait for Tata Nexon EV.
