These robust powertrains ensure a dynamic driving experience with ample acceleration and responsiveness, further enhancing the appeal of the Nexon in its segment.

This accessible pricing and its outstanding safety and performance credentials make the Nexon an irresistible proposition for budget-conscious buyers seeking a feature-packed SUV.
