Tata Nexon Dark Edition will sport aesthetic changes over the regular Nexon, to both the exterior and interior, but won’t feature any mechanical changes
Tata Motor is all set to launch the Dark Edition variants of the Altroz hatchback and Nexon SUV, likely in the coming days. These Dark Edition models have already started arriving at dealerships, and the anticipation for them is fairly high. Here, we have a walkaround video of Tata Nexon Dark Edition, by Her Garage, which gives us a detailed look at the SUV’s new variant.
As the name suggests, the ‘Dark Edition’ variant features a lot of dark design elements. At the front, the silver-finished inserts on the foglamp housings and the highlights on the air dam have all been blacked out. The front grille gets a grey underline, and the faux bash plate continues to be silver-finished.
At the sides, we see 16-inch alloy wheels, which sport a blacked-out finish instead of dual-tone. There’s a ‘Dark’ badge a little above both the front fenders, and we see a dark grey finish on the window sills and the roof rails. The door handles are body-coloured, and the ORVMs feature matte and gloss black paint.
At the rear, we see a grey insert on the tailgate, which goes well with the black exterior paint. The rear bumper is the same as the regular Nexon, featuring a silver-finished faux bash plate at the bottom. The LED taillights remain unchanged as well, as does the roof-mounted spoiler with an integrated stop lamp. There’s Nexon lettering on the tailgate, which gets a matte black finish.
The Dark Edition version features an all-black interior theme, with piano black inserts on the doors and the dashboard. The ceiling also sports a black headliner, which matches the rest of the interior. The cabin design remains unchanged though, but we do see Dark badging on the seats. However, no extra features and equipment have been added to the Nexon Dark Edition.
The powertrain options will remain unchanged as well. The Nexon is available with two engine choices – a 1.2-litre petrol unit (120 PS/170 Nm) and a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel unit (110 PS/260 Nm). Both engines can be had with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed AMT. As for the price, the Dark Edition variants will be slightly more expensive than the corresponding regular variants, likely by around Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000.
