SUVs are the rage in the country, and every segment of these SUVs is bustling with competition. Of these segments, one of the most popular is the sub-compact under 4m SUV segment. And in this segment, one of the most popular models is the Tata Nexon. The Nexon has been around for a while now, and it is due for a major facelift. Tata Motors is working on this facelift, and it will most likely be launched next month in September. Now, if you are one of those individuals waiting for this SUV and want to know what changes will be on this upcoming facelifted model, then you have reached the right spot.
As noted from the numerous spy shots and renders, the front end of the upcoming Nexon Facelift will undergo a complete overhaul. It will now boast the modern split headlamp design with LED DRLs on top and the main headlight assembly on the front bumper. This new redesign will bring the Nexon Facelift in line with other Tata SUVs. The front end will become a lot sharper and more futuristic-looking.
Just like the front, the rear will also go through a massive redesign. It will boast much sleeker and sharper LED taillights. These taillights will also be connected via an LED brake light in between, bringing it up to the 2023 standards.
New alloy wheel design
The side profile of the Nexon facelift will remain the same as the outgoing model. However, what will be new is an all-new design for the alloy wheels. These new wheels will most likely feature a dual-tone finish. It is expected that the size for these wheels will remain the same, 16 inches, as the outgoing model.
All-new dashboard design
The entire dashboard of the Nexon facelift will be revised. The main layout will most likely remain the same, but the overall design will be much cleaner. Tata has gone with a minimalistic approach with the new dashboard and interior layout. The Nexon facelift interior takes inspiration from the Tata Curvv concept. The interior will be finished in a dual-tone scheme with interesting textures and new materials. The air conditioner vents will be significantly different from the outgoing model.
New 10.25-inch infotainment screen
One of the biggest highlights of this new interior will be the all-new 10.25-inch touchscreen display at the center. This new screen has been taken directly from the Nexon EV Max Dark Edition. It will boast the newest user interface from Tata. This will be a huge update from the outgoing model’s outdated 7-inch display.
All-new two-spoke steering wheel
Another major highlight of the interior of the upcoming Nexon will be its two-spoke steering wheel design. This steering wheel also made its debut with the Tata Curvv concept. Also, right behind the new two-spoke steering wheel will be an all-new fully digital instrument gauge cluster. The exact size of this screen is not known at the moment; however, it will come equipped with a ton of advanced graphics. It will also display a host of driver assistance features and information.
New automatic air conditioning controls
The upcoming Tata Nexon will ditch the physical buttons for the automatic air conditioning system. Instead, it will be getting two toggle switches and capacitive touch buttons. The two toggles will be for the blower and temperature control.
Additional new features
Apart from the already available features, the new Nexon facelift will come with a ton of new features, including a 360-degree camera system, front parking sensors, wireless smartphone charger, sequential turn signals, ventilated front seats, six airbags, a new electric sunroof, and a few others.
It has recently been reported that the Tata Nexon Facelift will be offered with an all-new petrol engine. This new engine will be a 1.2-liter turbo petrol unit. As of now, the exact power figures of this engine are unknown.
In addition, it has also been reported that the company will also be offering an all-new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This engine will come mated to the new 1.2-liter turbo petrol engine. The 7-speed DCT will be available with the top-spec variants.
