Tata Nexon is a very popular sub-compact SUV in the Indian market. It was first launched in India in mid-2017. It became an instant hit and also it was the first Indian car to bag 5-Star Safety Rating in the Global NCAP Crash Test. With this, it achieved the title of India's Safest Car back then and became even more popular. Now earlier this year, Tata gave this sub-compact SUV a mid-life update. Thanks to the recent facelift, the Nexon is now selling like hotcakes and has a long waiting period. So, Tata Motors is offering free RSA and extended warranty to some new Nexon customers as a token of appreciation.
As we have already mentioned before, the Tata Nexon got a mid-life update in January 2020. The Nexon Facelift was introduced with new revised looks, BS6-compliant petrol and diesel engine options and some new features. All these things coupled with the 5-Star Global NCAP Crash Test Rating make it very popular among the buyers and a great value for money offering in its price range. Thanks to all these updates, there is a high demand for the Tata Nexon. The demand level has surpassed the supply level and also the expectations of the car manufacturer and there is a long waiting period for the car.
So, Tata Motors is now offering free one year extended warranty and road-side assistance (RSA) to the Nexon customers who have booked their Nexon previously and have been waiting for their car for more than a month now. This free one-year extended warranty and RSA are offered by the carmaker as a token of appreciation and goodwill gesture for being patient. Some customers even claimed that they have been waiting for their Tata Nexon for almost 70 days. Thus, this is a very good step by Tata Motors and it is a win situation for everyone. It will prevent the customers from cancelling their bookings and at the end, the buyers are also getting good benefits.
Talking about the Nexon Facelift, it is powered by a BS6-compliant 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine. This turbo petrol motor churns out 120 PS of maximum power and 170 Nm of peak torque. It also gets a 1.5-litre diesel engine that pumps out 110 PS of power and a whopping 260 Nm of torque. Both the engines come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed AMT.
