According to Mr. Sujan Roy – Head – International Business, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors –
Our focus is to introduce products and services that not only enhance the brand, but simultaneously align well with the rising aspirations of customer segments. AMT as a transmission is ideally suited for traffic conditions, reducing the stress of driving at an affordable price, without compromising on fuel efficiency. In a constant endeavour to fill in white spaces, we are extremely happy to introduce the all-new Nexon AMT into the Nepal market. With the introduction of this LEVEL NEX product, we aim to tap a larger market and increase our market share in not only the Compact SUV segment but also the AMT segment.
Speaking at the unveiling, Mr. Rajan Babu Shrestha, CEO, Sipradi Trading Pvt. Ltd., said,
The Nexon has been a very well accepted product in the Nepal market. With the introduction of this brand, we successfully expanded our business beyond hatchbacks and sedans. Taking this association a step ahead, we are excited to launch the Nexon AMT today. With the capability to enhance driving pleasure with class leading features, we are confident that the Nexon AMT will definitely be a desired product in Nepal.
Sporting the all-new Etna Orange color, the Tata NEXON AMT comes with best-in-class ground clearance of 209 mm. Extensively loaded with features, the car is equipped with an intelligent transmission controller, which includes features such as anti-stall, kick-down and fast-off; helping optimize the automatic gearshifts to provide best power output during overtaking maneuvers or quick acceleration requirements. This combined with 110PS power output from turbocharged motors results in an enthralling and sporty drive experience like no other.
In addition to providing a clutch-free drive experience, the car comes with features like Smart Hill Assist and Crawl function, making the car high on convenience. While the Smart Hill Assist prevents the NEXON from rolling-back on uphill drives during bumper-to-bumper traffic, the Crawl function comes into play during slow moving traffic by helping the car move ahead without pressing the accelerator. Further adding to the convenience is the wearable PEPS Key, which will allow customers to wear their car key smartly as a wristband and enjoy hassle-free access and ignition of the NEXON.
Keeping safety as its core, this vehicle provides standard safety features like dual frontal airbags and ABS with electronic brake-force distribution in all wheels, to ensure peace of mind while enjoying a spirited drive. The spacious cabin along with a 350L boot space and rear 60:40 seat split to store extra luggage, makes it a complete package for long distance trips.
Additionally, the Tata NEXON AMT is not only pegged at drive convenience, but also comes with class-leading infotainment system. It comes with a 6.5” floating dash-top touchscreen infotainment with next-gen smartphone connectivity and an exclusively tuned 8-speaker system from Harman-KardonTM, for a surround sound theatre like experience. With next-generation of smartphone connectivity with Android AutoTMto ensure an easy and intuitive vocal interaction with the infotainment for navigation, music, making calls; the system additionally allows reading & replying to text & WhatsAppTM messages.
