According to the manufacturer, the new model of Tata Motors features overall dimensions worth 1,994 mm x 1,811 mm x 1,607 mm (L X W X H), 2,489 mm wheelbase and a ground clearance of 209 mm (9 mm higher than its rival EcoSport).
Interior-wise, it seems that Tata has taken inspiration from the Range Rover Evoque shown in high-set centre console, sliding tambour-style door and rotary knob. Besides, the Tata Nexon will come loaded with a 6.5-inche free floating high definition touchscreen infotainment unit dubbed “ConnectNext system”. This system is also coupled to an 8-speaker setup and especially, supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Thanks to this, the Nexon will be the first Tata to come with this feature, putting it one step above the Tata’s flagship Hexa.
