Tata Nexon facelift exterior design
On the outside, the Nexon facelift gets a split-headlamp set-up with a thick upper grille section that houses the Tata Motors logo. The lower portion of the headlights are placed in a trapezoidal housing with a bigger grille that has a thick plastic bar running across. The refreshed Nexon also gets new sequential LED daytime running light signatures.
In profile, not much has changed in the Nexon facelift, apart from the new accent line, which is now highlighted in a contrasting colour as well as new alloy wheels. At the back, the updated Nexon gets a full-width LED light, with the Tata Motors logo in the centre. The reverse light has moved from the tail-light housing to the bumper. Like before, the number plate is housed in the bumper, which also gets a faux skid plate. The Nexon facelift has a ground clearance of 208mm, the same as before.
Tata Nexon facelift interior and features
Inside, the Nexon facelift bears a close resemblance to the Curvv concept’s interior, with a new touchscreen set-up and a two-spoke steering wheel. The AC vents are now slimmer and more angular, and the dashboard uses fewer physical buttons. Speaking of which, there are two toggles in the centre console that are surrounded by a touch-based HVAC control. The dashboard also gets a leather inserts along with a carbon-fibre-like finish.
Front and centre is a free-standing 10.25-inch touchscreen that made its debut in the Nexon EV Max Dark edition that launched earlier this year. The other screen in the Nexon facelift is the 10.25-inch full-digital instrument cluster which can be customised to have navigation as well. Other features in the top-spec Nexon facelift include a 360-degree camera, connected car tech, a wireless charger, ventilated front seats, air purifier and more. Safety features on the Nexon facelift include six airbags as standard, ESC, three-point seat belts for all seats, ISOFIX as well as emergency and breakdown call assi
