The Nexon showcased here has automatic sunroof sourced from Webasto and its range costs between Rs. 60,000 and Rs. 1 lakh
Tata Motors does not offer sunroof with the Nexon subcompact SUV, the brand’s second best-selling model in the country. Competitors such as Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300 do offer the popular piece of equipment, as customers across the board prefer to enjoy airy feel on their vehicle.
The homegrown automaker does give the privilege of optioning out the sunroof from Harrier’s accessories list but the Nexon does not get that but it did not prevent owners from reaching out to customisation firms to fit one. We can expect Tata to address the customers’ voices and provide sunroof as an option at least when the facelift gets introduced.
Automatic sunroofs are far more convenient than manual sunroofs due to the easy access of space and the ability to be retracted at the touch of a button in most cases. The aftermarket system equipped on this Nexon is from Webasto, which is renowned for sunroofs, panorama, folding or solar roofs in automotive and various other applications.
The Webasto sourced automatic sunroof on the Nexon costs Rs. 60,000 and depending on the usability and preference the range expands up to Rs. 1 lakh. The auto sunroof showcased here can be operated with the touch of a button and if anti-pinch function and sunshade are your priorities, you will be charged accordingly.
While it costs Rs. 75,000, the addition of auto lock and in-built sliding glass will dig a deeper hole in your pocket. The Nexon is priced aggressively in the domestic market and can be had with 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel engine choices with either six-speed manual or six-speed AMT transmission.
The coupe-like styling of the Nexon has been well thought out and it does not get in the way of rear occupant headroom. The five-seater SUV has 209 mm ground clearance as it can tackle mild off-roading scenarios and most importantly it is the first India-made SUV to achieve five stars in Global NCAP crash tests.
