Tata Nexon Uncamouflaged Pic Leaked; Update: Its Kia Sportage!

Update: Moments back we shared this spy pic of an interesting car and our happiness was cut short by one of our friend. He tells us that this looks more like the Kia Sportage!

We compared the pic we have with the Kia and it does appear to be real similar. So, in all possibility this is the Kia Sportage brought here for some benchmarks. However, we did mistake it as the upcoming Nexon compact SUV considering the similarities. We apologize for the gaffe!

Against what has been reported a few days back, Tata Nexon just doesn’t look like Evoque at all! And this, we say based on what we have for you today – an absolutely uncamouflaged spyshot of the eagerly awaited compact SUV.

Against Evoque’s very muscular beefier and flatter front, Nexon gets a very crossover or more of a car-like face which has an uncanny resemblance with siblings Zest and Bolt! The headlamps are a lot sleeker and it gets a chrome outlined grille.


The fog lamps, their housing and the connecting line between them reminds us of Mobilio RS and the lower part gets black body cladding which moves on to the wheel arches and other areas as well. However, it is minimalistic.

The falling coupe-like roofline of the beautiful concept has been bid adieu for a more practical one which should aid in better interior space. The roof is black in color and the tyres appear to be fairly large, possibly 16 or 17 inchers!

The B-pillars are blackened and there is the addition of silver colored roof rails. Alloy wheels are different from the concept and appear to be derivatives of current Storme’s.

At least in the pic we have, it doesn’t really look tiny as EcoSport and should be at the ballpark of 4 meters however, as expected it is a lot lower in height than Tata Safari (parked by its side).

To us the car looks production-ready and against the general expectation Tata may surprise us with its launch earlier. However, we like what we see and EcoSport may brace up for some real competition…
