- Expected to be launched in early 2020
- Features production-spec body panels
- Will get BS-VI compliant petrol and diesel engines
It’s been quite a while since Tata Motors has been working on an update for the Nexon. We have already seen quite a few pre-production test mules of the compact SUV. That said, what we have here is the upcoming Tata Nexon facelift in near-production form. The car was spotted testing on the outskirts of Pune recently.
The Nexon facelift features an updated front fascia and tweaks to its rear. There are new wraparound projector headlights with LED DRLs, a redesigned front bumper and a slightly tweaked hood. There are no noticeable updates to the profile, although we can expect it to get a set of restyled alloys. Changes to the rear are minimal as we can only notice a tweaked bumper with prominent scuff plates.
The Tata Nexon always had practical interiors with good quality material. So, we don’t expect the facelift model to get many changes. That said, it may come with new upholstery for the seats. Under the hood, it will continue to come with turbocharged 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines respectively, and with the same gearbox options. However, these will be BS-VI compliant.
The Tata Nexon facelift is expected to be launched in India in early 2020. We can expect Tata Motors to showcase it at the upcoming 2020 Auto Expo in February. The Nexon competes against the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra XUV300.
