With these variants, Tata Motors has also added an Ivory White roof colour option on the Nexon.

Our opinion of the Tata Nexon AMT
We have reviewed the Tata Nexon AMT trims and found them to be likeable. Our road test of the Tata Nexon AMT petrol proved that the SUV is very capable and is a useful asset while driving in the city. The AMT has been tuned very nicely and is receptive of throttle inputs too. Tata Motors has also tuned the suspension to be very absorbing while the brakes (discs in front and drums at the back) are very sharp too. With the introduction of the XMA trims, the affordability of the Nexon has increased. It is now better equipped to take on the Maruti Suzuki Brezza AMT.
