The Tata Nexon facelift has been spotted several times and, as we've previously reported, it will go on sale in August this year. While all images so far have only given us a glimpse of the exterior design, we now have the first images of the interior of the Nexon facelift.
Like the exterior, the interior of the updated Nexon will also borrow heavily from the Curvv concept. In fact, the spy images hint at a major overhaul of the interior with a significant step-up in equipment levels and quality.
- Nexon facelift interior to be inspired by Curvv Concept
- Will get new two-spoke steering wheel, larger infotainment screen
- Nexon EV facelift will have slightly different design updates
Tata Nexon facelift interior spied
The most prominent thing that’s visible in the latest spy images is a new two-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel that was seen on the Curvv concept. The steering houses a couple of toggle switches at either end along with several touch-sensitive haptic buttons. The coolest thing about this steering wheel, at least in concept form, was a seamlessly integrated backlit Tata logo, although it remains to be seen whether it makes it to production or not.
What’s also partially visible is a redesigned centre console with a new touch panel and toggle switches for the HVAC control, which, again, is a direct lift from the Curvv concept. As expected, Tata’s new 10.25-inch touchscreen will also be offered, and it means the entire dashboard will likely be redesigned. This also suggests that there could be a step-up in quality and equipment levels, with a new digital instrument cluster that’s currently seen on the new Harrier and Safari Red Dark editions.
What's also clearly visible is the lower centre console area, which, however, remains largely unchanged. The drive mode selector has been carried over as is, there’s a slightly redesigned gear lever, while the manual handbrake and wireless charger have been retained. The spy images also preview a new purple upholstery for the seats.
