Special-edition Nexon gets neon green highlights on the outside and inside; no mechanical changes expected.

Tata Motors has begun teasing a special-edition Nexon Kraz, which is expected to launch soon. Details of what’s unique on this special-edition model have surfaced on the internet.

The Nexon Kraz features a black and grey dual-tone paint scheme on the exterior. There are neon green highlights on the outside mirrors, the front grille and wheel caps, which add a dash of colour to the exterior. On the rear, it sports the ‘Kraz’ badge that's highlighted in the same neon shade. The Kraz edition is expected to be available on the XT variant, which means there won’t be a touchscreen infotainment system or alloy wheels on offer. 

The neon theme continues in the cabin as well, in the form of highlights around the AC vents and the stitching on the seats. 

Mechanically, the Kraz is expected to run the same engines and gearboxes as the standard Nexon. The line-up includes a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine making 110hp and 170Nm of torque, and a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-diesel motor that produces 110hp and 260Nm of peak torque. Both engines get two transmission options – a six-speed manual and a six-speed AMT. The Nexon was also recently awarded a four-star safety rating by the Global NCAP.

Unlike the Nexon Rose Gold edition, the Kraz is not a dealer-level customisation job, but is, in fact, a limited edition straight from the manufacturer.
