The Tata Nexon facelift and Nexon EV facelift will be launched in India on September 14 and they will get big revisions inside and out
Tata Motors will officially introduce the facelifted Nexon and Nexon EV on September 14, 2023 in the domestic market. Both have been spotted testing multiple times over the last several months on public roads and they will get big updates inside and out. The exterior will be heavily influenced by the design of the Curvv concept showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo.
The Nexon nameplate has garnered consistent volumes for the brand since its market debut in 2017 and the arrival of the mid-life update in early 2020 has really increased its popularity. It is currently one of the best-selling SUVs in the country and the updated model will look to carry forward the momentum.
The Nexon EV is the top most selling EV in India and it will be subjected to its first major update visually and inside the cabin this time around. The 2023 Tata Nexon will get a redesigned front fascia featuring a split cluster with sleek LED Daytime Running Lights sitting on top and deep C-shaped housings for the headlamp.
The revised bumper gains wider air intake while the bonnet will be more muscular. Other cosmetic updates are newly designed alloy wheels and minor changes to the sides but the rear will be a thorough makeover. It features full-width LED tail lamps branching out to form a Y-shaped pattern, a tweaked tailgate, an updated bumper with new inserts and reflectors, etc.
The homegrown manufacturer will also introduce new colours and the variant lineup will get a new naming structure in a similar fashion to the Punch. As for the powertrains, the same 1.2L three-pot Revotron turbo petrol and the 1.5L four-cylinder Revotorq turbo diesel engines will continue. The former makes 120 PS and 170 Nm while the latter kicks out 110 PS and 260 Nm.
The gasoline mill will be available with a five-speed manual transmission in the lower trims and the existing six-speed MT will be carried over. The six-speed AMT will be accompanied by a new seven-speed DCT borrowed from Altroz. The oil burner will continue with the six-speed MT and six-speed AMT.
The cabin will get massive updates as it will feature a revised dashboard and centre console along with a new two-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated logo, capacitive controls for HVAC operations, sleeker AC vents, a 360-degree camera system, wireless charging facility, a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and new UI, a 10.25-inch digital console and so on.
