Tata Motors has recently launched the facelifted Nexon with two new gearbox options. Compared to its predecessor, the upgraded SUV now offers slightly better fuel efficiency. And when we talk about mileage, Maruti Suzuki often leads the way. So, here we’ve put the 2023 Nexon against Maruti’s two sub-4m SUVs, the Brezza and Fronx, to see which model is more eco-friendly.
|2023 Tata Nexon||1.2 Turbo-Petrol: 17.44 kmpl |
1.5 Diesel: 23.23 kmpl
|1.2 Turbo-Petrol: 17.18 kmpl (AMT), 17.01 kmpl (DCT)|
1.5 Diesel: 24.08 kmpl (AMT)
|Maruti Suzuki Brezza||1.5 Petrol: 17.38 kmpl||1.5 Petrol: 19.80 kmpl (Torque converter)|
|Maruti Suzuki Fronx||1.2 Petrol: 21.79 kmpl |
1.0 Turbo-Petrol: 21.5 kmpl
|1.2 Petrol: 22.89 kmpl (AMT)|
1.0 Turbo-Petrol: 20.1 kmpl (Torque converter)
- As seen in the table above, the Tata Nexon is available with both petrol and diesel powertrains, whereas both Marutis are petrol-only offerings.
- Tata offers the Nexon petrol with four transmission options, comprising a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed AMT and a 7-speed DCT. Both the petrol-manual variants claim identical fuel efficiencies, which are slightly higher than the Brezza manual. However, the Fronx surpasses both the offerings.
- The Maruti Fronx, with its 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, is the most fuel-efficient offering here, followed by its 1-litre turbocharged version.
- When it comes to petrol-automatic versions, the Fronx again leads the chart. Interestingly, the Brezza Automatic also offers better mileage than both AMT and DCT versions of Nexon petrol.
- Speaking of the Nexon diesel, it claims 23.23 kmpl with manual and 24.08 kmpl with AMT transmission.
