The Nexon XMA becomes the first AMT in the country to flaunt multiple drive modes…
It hasn’t been so long since Tata Motors gave their popular compact SUV Nexon, an easy to drive AMT autmatic varient. But back then, the new AMT transmission had come handy to just the top spec XZA trim of the car. However Tata Motors definitley haven’t dared to keep their
eyes shut to the ever booming popularity of the AMT box and has now come up with yet another AMT trim of the Nexon. The car maker has now added the HyprDrive Self-Shift Gears (S-SG) to the medium spec XM trim of Nexon, that is in high demand these days. Christened XMA, the mid spec Nexon is available in both petrol and Diesel avatars, both of which now get the convenience of an Automated Manual Transmission that offers multiple drive modes!
The gearbox gets three Drive modes, viz ECO, CITY, SPORT and a forward and reverse crawl function that would definitely ease up things in the bumper to bumper city runs. The smart transmission controller also comes with features like anti-stall, kick-down, and fast off, that would give the driver a more convenient driving experience.
The petrols get a 1.2L Turbocharged Revotron mill while it is a 1.5L turbocharged Revotorq motor that get the job done in the diesels!
Nexon XMA also gets a new ivory- white roof that further accentuates the car’s coupe like stance. The equipment and feature lists remain unchanged from the regular XM trim. The car is priced at INR. 7.50 lakhs, (ex-showroom Delhi), for the petrol XMA and at INR. 8.53 lakhs, (ex-showroom Delhi) for the Diesel XMA models.
