    Tata Nexon facelift expected to look much sharper

    The Nexon facelift has been spied tested many times on the outskirts of Pune, and even though the test mules are camouflaged, some details are apparent, including the design direction that Tata Motors will take with this SUV. Expect the Nexon facelift to feature design cues from the recently showcased Tata Curvv, with a design overhaul at the front and the rear.  

    Upfront, the grill gets a twin-part design replete with diamond-shaped inserts in the lower half. A full-width LED light bar is expected to be positioned from end to end right above the grille, connecting both headlamps. The Tata Nexon facelift's front styling seems to be even more upright with a much flatter nose and a newly designed headlamp, which is positioned lower down. The side profile is expected to remain largely the same save for a new design for the alloy wheels. 

    At the rear, the tail-lamps sport a fresh design and also get a connected LED light bar. Higher variants are expected to get dynamic turn signals as well. The tailgate design is flatter and blends smoothly with the new-look rear bumper.
