- The base variant remains unchanged but all the other variants get a rejigged feature list.
- The Nexon has been on sale since September 2017 and is due for a mid-life update.
Tata has discreetly updated the feature list of the Nexon. The sub-four metre SUV now gets additional equipment across the trim levels with both petrol and diesel models. However, the entry-level XE trim remains unchanged. A leaked document that surfaced online revealed all the details about the feature updates but there hais been no word from Tata regarding the same.
According to the document, the XZ+/XZA+ trim now gets two 12V power outlets with the addition of a new outlet behind the rear seat. The door trim finishers on these two variants are now finished in piano black instead of satin chrome. Barring the XM, all the other trims now have rear air blowers upgraded to proper AC vents. The rear seat AC vents also get adjustable control at the back as well as on the front controls. These trims have also received newly designed roof rails.
Meanwhile, the changes in the XM, XMA, XT and XZ trims include – dashboard mid-pad colour changed from silver to glossy Warm Grey and a new piano black finish for gear shifter and AC control panel surround. Also, the XM, XMA and XT variants get new aesthetics for non-touch infotainment screen with improved fonts and an increased antenna length.
Apart from these, there have been no mechanical changes to the Nexon. This sub-compact SUV continues to be sold with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine which puts out 108bhp and 170Nm and the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel which produces 108bhp and 260Nm. The transmission options are a six-speed manual as standard and an AMT as optional.
There seem to be no changes in the pricing either and we are unsure about when the updated models will hit the showroom. For that, we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from Tata. So keep watching this space.
