With the engine details and features of the top-spec Venue announced, we evaluate if it’s worth waiting for or is it better to opt for one of its already available rivals? Let’s find out:

Tata Nexon Rs 6.36 lakh – Rs 10.80 lakh

Tata Nexon: BUY it for assured safety and standout design

The Tata Nexon became the first made-in-India car to get a full five-star crash test rating from Global NCAP. The Nexon scored five stars for adult and three stars for child protection, and is the safest made-in-India car tested by global NCAP till date.

Safety is not its only appeal as the Nexon’s styling makes it stand out on the road. Its coupe-like profile and dual-tone colour options rarely go unnoticed in a crowd. The Nexon is also competitively priced in the segment. In fact, the base-spec petrol Nexon is the most affordable sub-4m SUV in the country as of now.
