Tata Nexon AMT Launch Could Happen Next Year

Tata Nexon AMT to launch in a few months. Prices will see a slight increment. Specs and mileage will remain mostly unchanged

The Tata Nexon is about to launch and has already created a lot of news for its stylish exterior, well appointed interior and powerful engines. Speculations are now abounding that the manufacturer is also planning to launch the Tata Nexon AMT a few months after the launch of the manual model. The Tata Nexon AMT price will be only a little more than that of manual models. Other than the inclusion of the AMT, specs and mileage will remain largely the same. We have come up with all the details of the new model in our post here.

The Nexon AMT will launch in both Petrol and Diesel models. It is likely to launch in all trim levels and hence, the new AMT models will get all the features of the regular car. Once launched, the AMT models will give the Nexon a clear edge over arch rivals Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. While the Brezza doesn’t yet offer an AMT in any of its models, the EcoSport has an automatic transmission only with the 1.5-litre petrol model.

Tata Nexon AMT Price in India

Petrol AMT Price Rs 7.75 lakh – 9.15 lakh
Diesel AMT Price Rs 9.50 lakh – 10.50 lakh

Prices will be only slightly higher than the manual models. We are expecting a price premium of roughly Rs 50,000 o over equally spec’ed manual models.

While the mileage figures will come out only closer to the launch, we don’t think they will be much different from those of the manual models.

In fact, AMTs are known to be marginally more frugal than manual transmissions.
