Tata’s debut of multiple new models at the Auto Expo was a huge success. It also unveiled two new gasoline engines matched to the vehicles: a 1.2-liter turbo and a 1.5-liter turbo. The 1.5-liter engine is brand new and can generate 167 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque.

This motor can provide 123 horsepower and 225 Newton meters of torque. Compared to the existing 118 horsepower and 170 Nm of torque, that is a sizable increase. Tata claims that their engine is BS6 stage 2 ready and is suitable for use with E20 ethanol.

Tata is modernizing the Nexon’s 1.5-liter diesel engine for the forthcoming BS6 stage 2 requirements, thus it will continue to be offered with the updated model.

Tata might instal the updated engine in the current Nexon in time for BS6 Stage 2 regulations before the vehicle receives a facelift.
