Within days of launching the Nexon AMT variant in the XZA variant, fresh reports have emerged that the company is now considering introducing the AMT option in the lower spec XMA and the XZA variants as well. Currently, the top-spec AMT petrol version is priced at Rs 9.41 lakhs while the diesel version is offered for Rs 10.3 lakhs. The lower spec AMT option will further strengthen Tata’s foothold in the Indian market.

When introduced, the Nexon XMA AMT will be the most affordable AMT option, while the XZA AMT will stand as the mid-level offering. Mechanically, it will continue to be powered by the existing petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol iteration gets a turbocharged 1.2-litre engine that generates 108bhp of power and 170Nm of torque. The diesel version gets a 1.5-litre unit that produces 108bhp of power and 260Nm of torque. Both the engines come mated to a new six-speed AMT which the company calls as the Hyperdrive S-SG.

In an effort to keep the XMA AMT variant affordable and reachable for the masses, the company is expected to cut slack on expensive features such as projector headlamps with the LED DRLs and diamond cut alloy wheels. However, it continues to be offered with ConnectNext infotainment system with steering mounted audio controls, follow-me-home headlamps, electronically adjustable ORVMs, wheel covers, four speakers, power tailgate and more.

The Nexon XZA AMT on the other hand is expected to miss out on features like keyless entry and a few more. It might be offered with a large touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, auto climate control, parking sensors with reverse camera and a cooled glovebox. Additionally the variant will also offer height adjustable driver’s seat, along with more features.
