Expected to be the game changer for Tata Motors, the much awaited Tata Nexon subcompact SUV is finally out in the open with all the details revealed. In fact, we have driven the sub 4-metre SUV as well and can say, it holds a lot of promise (Read: Tata Nexon Review). However, the subcompact SUV space is a crowded one with a healthy load of SUVs and even crossovers are already present in the market from bestsellers including the Ford EcoSport and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, to the likes of Mahindra’s TUV300, Hyundai i20 Active and the all-new Honda WR-V. So, where does the Tata Nexon stand amidst the multitude of rivals? We do a quick spec sheet comparison to find out.
