Earlier this week, a test mule of the Tata Nexon facelift was spied testing in the country. According to reports, the Nexon facelift will feature Tata Motors’ IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy. Furthermore, it is believed that the company will update its entire passenger vehicles’ product portfolio with the IMPACT 2.0 design language. So based on it, here is a digital rendering of the upcoming Tata Nexon facelift.
Taking cues from the Tata Harrier, the updated Nexon is likely to feature the two-tier headlamp design with the LED daytime running lights placed on top of it. The SUV could feature an updated honeycomb grille along with a pronounced design pattern for the humanity line. Apart from the updated front-end, we don’t expect the Nexon facelift to receive many changes.
We can expect the Tata Nexon facelift to receive a few feature additions and new paint schemes. Apart from the cosmetic changes, the SUV is likely to come with BS-VI compliant powertrains. However, this will be done closer to the 1 April 2020 deadline. The updated Nexon is expected to continue with the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engines.
The Tata Nexon is the most affordable compact SUV in its segment, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the company increases the price of the SUV with the facelift. The Nexon has been in the market since the last two years and has been doing well against the competition. The facelift will be an interim job until Tata Motors comes with a new-generation model, which will be based on the ALFA platform that underpins the Tata Altroz premium hatchback.
