Engine options on offer are - a 1.2 liter turbocharged Revotron petrol engine and a 1.5 liter diesel engine option. Now, the company is all set to bring in their compact crossover Nexon around the festive season this year. On the torque front, the 1.5 diesel develops maximum torque of 260 Nm at 1500-2750rpm and the 1.2 petrol outputs 170Nm at 2000-4000rpm.

Commenting on the announcement, Tata Motors - President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Mayank Pareek said, "The engine is the heart of the auto and along with the SUV like design and features, we wanted to offer punchy, responsive and refined engines". The Revotorq 1.5 diesel motor will make its debut in the Nexon which is slated for an India launch around September 2017.

Both the engines have been developed indigenously with inputs from global technology suppliers like AVL, Bosch, Mahle and Honeywell.

While the Revotron engines will be manufactured at the Sanand facility, the Revotorq engines will be produced at the Ranjangaon facility, the company added.

In Loaded Gun Case

"Both these engines have been designed and developed after extensive feedback from auto enthusiasts, expert drivers, followed by extensive testing across India, on different terrains", he said.

"We are confident that this new family of engines will further help us build our brand and deliver a memorable experience on-road", Pareek said. According to Tata, the sole transmission on offer will be a TA6300 six-speed manual unit.

Tata Motors is yet to reveal the fuel efficiency figures on its new engines, but says that the new engine family will offer an unrivalled package of fuel efficiency, performance, and refinement.

The Nexon will take on the likes of the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti Vitara Brezza, both being popular contenders in the sub-four-metre compact SUV segment. With the competition in the Indian market, we expect Tata Motors to price the Nexon aggressively in the range of Rs 6 lakh to Rs 9 lakh.
