Comparison: Nexon vs. Brezza vs. EcoSport vs. TUV300 vs. WR-V

Tata Nexon was recently launched in India for INR 5.85 lakh. They simply nailed the price part while keeping features at an all-time high value. Not just that, buyers get a product that is completely different from all others of its kind. Here is a comparison for all five sub four meter SUVs available in India.

Detailed Comparison: Tata Nexon vs. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza vs. Ford EcoSport vs. Mahindra TUV300 vs. Honda WR-V

# Design & Style: Starting with Tata Nexon, one thing is pretty sure that Tata Motors have worked hard to keep most bits from the concept version. It looks the best from both sides as one gets a glimpse of coupe inside a full grown SUV. Front comes with a smiling face while rear gets futuristic design bits around the taillight area. On the other hand, TUV300 is extremely boxy (aka rugged) and looks bigger than all others in its segment. Vitara Brezza even feels small in length as compared to its height. EcoSport is preparing for a design update while WR-V feels quite inspired from Jazz in most terms.

# Engine & Performance: Tata Nexon is the most powerful SUV in this segment. Both the engines are good for 110 HP of maximum power while diesel engine did a miracle with 260 Nm of massive torque. Second most powerful option comes on TUV300, Ford EcoSport and Honda WR-V, all producing around 100 HP of maximum power with variable torque values. Maruti Vitara Brezza is least powerful with 90 HP but weighs quite less when compared to all others. Overall, Nexon shines here with most power on both engines. None of the option here offers 4WD on any variant.
