Tata Nexon modified with Kia Seltos-style DRL

Tata Nexon is on the fourth place in the top-selling compact-SUVs and it managed to clock highest sales ever. Nexon’s sales numbers were 8,225 unit sales in India last month, which is 143 percent when compared to the 3,382 unit sales in January 2020. One of the reasons for this success is the update that Tata gave to the Nexon last year. The compact-SUV now looks butch than ever and it does resemble the Land Rover Discovery which is a big thing. The appeal of the Nexon has increased drastically. Another thing that helps Nexon is its Global NCAP rating. The compact-SUV scored 5 stars in the Global NCAP crash test. Here, we have a Nexon that gets a front fascia inspired by the Kia Seltos. The modifications have been done by Rohit Mehta Sai Auto Accessories and the video has been uploaded on their YouTube channel.

In the video, we can first see the newly modified front of the compact-SUV. It looks much better than the regular Nexon. This is the XMS automatic variant which sits above the base XE and the XM variant. We can see a single strip of LED strip has been installed on the Nexon, which runs throughout the width of the vehicle. The person explains that the LED strip is a single-piece unit and is also offered for other Tata vehicles like Altroz and Tiago. Tata gives a glossy black grille in the front so the extended an outline in the same colour for the headlight surrounding too.

The headlight surround also gets three small red stripes. The fog lamps that we see in the video are installed by the shop. It is a multi-colour tri-ring fog lamp. So, it can be white in colour or yellow in colour. The vehicle also gets a huge plastic cladding and a faux skid plate that the person claims will protect the car from minor scratches that you can get when a motorcycle or something else touches your front in bumper to bumper traffic. The skid plate is finished in grey with a chrome belt running around the air intake.

At the front, there is also a Nexon badging in black which sits on the bonnet. The outside rearview mirrors and the door handles are finished in piano black just like the top-end variant. All the four windows get door visors with a chrome strip on them. The taillights also get a black surround.

For the interior, you are first introduced with a black steering wheel with white stitching and illuminated footsteps that spell out Nexon. Then there are the seat covers that are black and gets silver stitching pattern and Nexon badging. There is also an after-market front armrest. It also gets an aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system based on Android. The infotainment system can also show car alerts like an open door and it also shows climate controls. The buyer of the vehicle also seems happy with the modifications.
