The newly launched EcoSport is a refined product that now comes with an all-new engine and a lot more features. On the other hand, the Tata Nexon which was launched recently appears to be an extremely thought out product as well since it is quite feature-rich and offers a set of capable engine options. So can these cars collectively or individually upset the king i.e. Maruti Brezza? We find out in this comparison infographic.
Pricing is the key strategy for Tata, and the Nexon undercuts the competition by a long margin and yet manages to offer great value. While it may be more or less comparable in terms of wheelbase, height etc. It offers best ground clearance in class at 209mm, which would make it extremely hard to scrape its belly. Brezza and EcoSport are very comparable in terms of pricing as well as other specifications. However, if you would look closely, you will find out that EcoSport does offer a lot more features for the extra price you pay.
Nexon offers a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine along with a 1.5-litre diesel motor. Both develop similar power figures, however, in terms of torque, diesel has a distinct advantage. Ford EcoSport, on the other hand, offers two engine choices instead of three and turbocharged petrol has been discontinued. In its place, you get a three-cylinder petrol motor that develops respectable power and torque figures. Vitara Brezza offers a 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced diesel engine only with no option for petrol. You get a traditional automatic transmission with the EcoSport 1.5-litre engine while other two offer only manual transmissions at the moment.
Though Tata Nexon offers quite a lot of impressive features like floating touchscreen, a music system from Harman, a place where you could keep your umbrella etc. It does miss out others like cruise control, rain sensing wipers etc. You get these in the case of Ford EcoSport as well as the Vitara Brezza. EcoSport is the best in terms of safety features, and you get features like six airbags, ABS, EBD, ESP, EBA etc. with the top variant. In our opinion, the EcoSport wins this comparison test fairly and squarely. However, if you are on a somewhat tighter budget, the Nexon is a great second option and is our close second choice.
