The Nexon facelift is one of the most anticipated new models from Tata Motors among the slew of launches lined up over the next few months. The Nexon facelift's launch is expected by September 2023, and ahead of that, we have fresh details on its trim line-up, as well as a few key features.
- Nexon facelift to have a simplified trim line-up
- Will get new features like 360-deg cam, front parking sensors
- Likely to get a new 7-speed DCT gearbox
Tata Nexon facelift trim line-up
Our sources have revealed that the Nexon facelift will be offered in more than 10 trims, and that Tata Motors will ditch the current trim nomenclature (XE, XM, XM+, XZ+, and XZ+ Lux), and instead, use names similar to the Punch line-up, which has trims like Pure and Creative.
At launch, the Nexon facelift will come with only the core trims, but special editions like the Dark Edition and Jet Edition will join the line-up at a later stage, likely in a phased manner, and will continue to be based only on top-spec trims. Such special edition models are hugely popular in Tata’s line-up, especially for its SUVs, often contributing upwards of 15 percent of total sales for each model.
Currently, the Nexon has as many as four special editions – Dark, Kaziranga, Jet and Red Dark – although it remains to be seen if all are brought back with the facelifted model.
Tata Nexon facelift key features revealed
The Nexon has dominated the sales charts in the sub-compact SUV space for several months now, but on the features front, it did not quite match up to the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet or even the Maruti Brezza. With the facelift, however, Tata is seriously going to up the game on the features front.
Spy shots have already indicated a new 10.25-inch touchscreen from the updated Harrier and Safari, a new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, and an all-new two-spoke steering wheel with a backlit Tata logo. We have now learnt that it will also get sequential turn indicators, a 360-degree camera with HD display, and even front parking sensors (the XUV300 and Sonet are the only other SUVs in this segment to get this feature).
Further, six airbags will be standard on all trims, as well as LED headlamps with LED DRLs and multi-drive modes. Higher trims will come with Tata’s new patented touch-based HVAC control panel, wireless charger, leatherette upholstery, ventilated seats and a new LED DRL welcome signature. As is the case with the current Nexon, a single-pane sunroof will be offered starting from the lower trims.
Stay tuned to this space for updates as more details on the Nexon facelift are expected in the lead-up to the launch.
