- It will feature an upright stance and a redesigned front fascia.
- The Nexon facelift will employ BS-VI compliant petrol and diesel engines.
- It could launch in early 2020.
A test prototype of the Tata Nexon facelift was spotted testing in Pune recently. The new set of spy shots reveal the front and side profile of the compact SUV, and we must say it has substantial changes made to the front fascia.
For starters, the compact SUV features an upright nose and the angular headlamps have made way for sleeker projector units. The humanity line grille has been revised and so has the front bumper. In profile, besides the upright nose, there aren’t any changes. And since the rear profile or the interiors aren’t visible in the spy shots, we can’t comment on that.
Under the hood, the Tata Nexon facelift is expected to continue with the same turbocharged versions of the 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel engines. However, the powertrains will be BS-VI compliant. And although unconfirmed, the power figures may be reduced slightly owing to the stricter emission norms.
While the official launch timeline of the Tata Nexon facelift isn’t known, we can expect it to launch in early 2020. Competition in the compact SUV segment has risen manifold with the introduction of cars like Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300, and it would be wise for Tata Motors to keep the Nexon relevant in the market. Additionally, Maruti Suzuki is set to launch the Vitara Brezza facelift in India in the first quarter of 2020.
