In a nation fascinated by the lure of SUVs, fierce competition is raging within each SUV segment. And one of the most popular is the sub-compact under 4m SUV segment. Tata Nexon is one of the most popular models in the segment. The Nexon will be undergoing a massive redesign. Tata Motors is working on this and most probably will be launching it next month.
In this article, we will be going through the redesigns that’s going to take place in the model.
Talking about the Front-end redesign, as per sources, the upcoming Nexon Facelift’s front end will be completely renovated. On top it will be showing off the design of a modern split headlamp with LED DRLs and on the front bumper, the main headlight assembly. The Nexon Facelift will be in line with other Tata SUVs with this new design. The front end is going to get a lot sharper and more futuristic.
For the redesigning of the rear end, it will also undergo a massive change. We will get to see much sleeker and sharper LED taillights. These lights are also joined by a middle LED brake light, bringing it to 2023’s standards.
Coming to the new alloy wheel design, the side profile of the Nexon facelift remains the same as the old model. What is new, however, is the all-new design of the alloy wheels. These new wheels are likely to have a two-tone finish. These wheels are expected to remain the same 16-inch size as the old model.
Talking about the interior of the car, changes will be seen in the dashboard, ac control, steering wheel and infotainment screen.
The dashboard of the Nexon facelift will be redesigned totally. The main layout will likely remain the same, but the overall design will be much cleaner. Tata has taken a minimalist approach to the new dashboard and interior. The interior of the Nexon facelift is inspired by the Tata Curvv concept. The interior is two-tone with interesting textures and new materials. The air conditioning vents are going to be different from the outgoing model.
Next is the all-new 10.25-inch touchscreen in the centre. This new display is taken directly from the Nexon EV Max Dark Edition. It has the latest Tata user interface. This is a huge upgrade over the outdated 7-inch screen of the outgoing model.
Now, comes the two-spoke steering wheel. Behind the brand new two-spoke steering wheel comes a brand new fully digital instrument cluster. The exact size of this screen is currently unknown; however, it comes with a large number of advanced graphics. It also displays some driver assistance functions and information.
For the new automatic air conditioning controls, the physical buttons for the automatic air conditioning system will be removed from the forthcoming Tata Nexon. Instead, it’s going to have two toggle switches and a capacitive touch button. The blower and temperature controls are to be controlled by two switches.
Besides the features that already available, a lot of new features, including a 360-degree camera system, front parking sensors, wireless charger for smartphones, sequential turn signals, ventilated front seats, six airbags, a new electric sunroof, and a few others, will be added to the new Nexon facelift.
According to reports, an all new petrol engine will be offered in the Tata Nexon Facelift. The new engine will be a 1.2 liter turbo petrol unit. The exact power figures of this engine are not yet known.
Furthermore, it has been reported that the company is also planning to offer an all new generation of seven speed dual clutch transmissions. This engine will be mated to the new 1.2 litre turbocharged petrol engine. With the top-spec variants, the 7-speed DCT will be available.
