Tata Nexon facelift revealed: Most tech-loaded sub-4m SUV with new radical design
Talking about the design first, the new Tata Nexongets a split headlamp setup up front, with LED headlamps placed lower on the new, more sporty-looking bumper.
Moving to the sides, not much is new apart from the funky looking 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. At the rear, the Nexon now gets a full-width tail light that it calls ‘X Factor tail lamp’, which also gets a welcome and goodbye function.
However, the biggest changes are the one made inside the cabin, with the Tata Nexon facelift gaining a new two-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel with an industry-first illuminated logo. The HVAC unit is now a touch panel, while the center console also looks more plush with a new gear selector. What’s more, the Tata Nexon facelift gets a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, along with a similarly sized fully digital instrument cluster.
Features on offer with the Tata Nexon facelift include Tata’s IRA 2.0 connected-tech, a voice assisted electric sunroof, a JBL nine-speaker sound system, wireless charger, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, first-in-segment navigation display on instrument cluster, a 360-degree camera, and more! On the safety front, the 2023 Nexon gets front and rear parking sensors, a first-in-class blind-view monitor, ESP, six airbags, Hill-hold control, roll over mitigation, traction control, ISOFIX child seat anchors and TPMS.
