The new Tata Nexon variant has been added to the compact SUV lineup. Priced from ₹9.75 lakh to 11.70 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the new Nexon XM+(S) version sits above the existing XM(S) and replaces the previously available Nexon XZ. The Tata Nexon XM+(S) gets a few extra features over the XM(S) which are borrowed from the discontinued XZ as well as the better placed XZ+ trim.
Along with the features already offered on the XM(S) trim, the Nexon XM+(S) gets a Harman 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, borrowed from the XZ, with a cooled gloves, rear AC vents, a rear 12V power outlet and a shark fin antenna, all of which come from the XZ+ trim.
The discontinued XZ version was only available with a manual gearbox for both petrol and diesel engines, the XM+(S) also offers automatic gearbox options for both engines. With this update, the Tata Nexon will be available in the following eight versions: XE, XM, XM(S), XM+(S), XZ+, XZ+(HS), XZ+(O) and XZ+(P).
Tata Motors recently hiked the prices of all its cars and SUVs, citing rising input costs. The Nexon saw the prices of the XM(S) diesel variants increase by a maximum of ₹15,000 while all other variants saw a flat rise of ₹5,000. Nexon SUV prices now range between ₹7.60 lakh to 13.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
