Tata Motors has launched the Tata Nexon HyprDrive Self-Shift Gears (S-SG) – XMA, sporting the AMT gearbox in its best-selling XM variant. With this introduction, the Nexon range will henceforth have two AMT variants – XMA & XZA+ which will be offered in 1.2L turbocharged Revotron petrol and 1.5L turbocharged Revotorq diesel engines respectively.Priced at Rs 7.50 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, for the petrol variant and at INR. 8.53 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, for the Diesel variant, the Tata Nexon XMA will be the most affordable SUV with AMT in India to offer Multi-Drive modes (3 modes – ECO, CITY, and SPORT).Tata has also brought out the all-new “Ivory White” roof-color option to further accentuate the Coupe-inspired design of the Tata Nexon. Sporting a ground clearance of 209 mm, the car is loaded with features like the transmission controller, which includes features such as anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off; helping optimize the automatic gearshifts to provide best power output during overtaking maneuvers or quick acceleration requirements with 110PS power output from turbocharged motors.The Nexon AMT also comes with features like Smart Hill Assist and Crawl function, making the car high on convenience. While the Smart Hill Assist prevents the NEXON from rolling-back on uphill drives during bumper-to-bumper traffic, the Crawl function comes into play during slow-moving traffic by helping the car move ahead without pressing the accelerator.In terms of safety, the Nexon XMA provides standard safety features like dual frontal airbags and ABS with electronic brake-force distribution in all wheels, to ensure peace of mind while enjoying a spirited drive. The spacious cabin along with a 350L boot space and rear 60:40 seat split to store extra luggage.advertisementTata Motors launched the AMT version of the Nexon in May 2018 and branded all its 2 pedal transmission cars as ‘HyprDrive’ while all the AMT variants from the Company were termed as Self-Shift Gears (S-SG). With the remarkable response to the Nexon XZA+ Tata plans to capture more market share as a part of its on-going Turnaround 2.0 journey, the Company has quickly responded to market and introduced the AMT in its mid-variant.
