Price comparison: Tata Nexon vs Kia Sonet vs Maruti Suzuki Brezza vs Hyundai Venue vs Mahindra XUV300
The Tata Nexon has just received its much-awaited facelift and has renewed its rivalry in one of India's favourite segments. The Nexon was already a very famous vehicle in this segment but did receive a lot of competition from the Maruti Suzuki Brezza and the Hyundai Venue.
