Tata Nexon price hike
Depending on the variant, the hike in prices of the Nexon range from a minimal Rs 1,000 up to Rs 11,000 for the fully loaded diesel XZA+ (O) Dark Edition. Some variants, however, are unaffected by the hike. The petrol and diesel XZ+ manual variants’ prices remain unchanged, as do prices for the petrol XZ+ and XZA+ Dark Editions and sunroof equipped-diesel XM (S) trim.
While previously Tata had built up the Nexon range to over 30 variants – dual tone not included – the carmaker has streamlined the line-up over the past few months. The diesel range now starts from the mid-spec XM variant onwards and the carmaker has also quietly pulled the plug on three other diesel variants – the XMA, XZ and XZA+ (S).
