Tata Motors has expanded its Dark Edition all-black cosmetic package to now include most of its lineup. The Tata Nexon, Tata Nexon EV and the Altroz now all get this package as an option on their top models. The Tata Harrier was the first to get these visual enhancements, and that has been updated with this widening of the range. Scroll on to see what separates these Dark Edition versions from the standard ones.
2021 Tata Nexon Dark Edition
The Tata Nexon Dark Edition should be the most popular of the lot here with the segment it competes in. The Dark upgrade is available on the top XZ+, XZA+, XZ+(O) & XZA+(O) variants in both petrol and diesel options. Prices start from Rs 10.40 lakh, a Rs 45,000 premium over the regular version.
The shade of black used on the Nexon, Nexon EV and ALtroz are very similar with slight differences in finish. Most of the styling elements are done up in the colour
The brushed grey finish along the Tata Nexon's beltline has been carried over to this version. Note the discreet black on black name plates
All the interior panels are now in black, replacing the light grey from the standard car. The gloss black centre console is a carryover with the same cross-patterned textures
2021 Tata Nexon EV Dark Edition
The Nexon's electric derivative gets the same treatment, although limited to only the mid-spec XZ Plus variant. The Nexon EV's lithium-ion battery is of 30.2kWh capacity and feeds a permanent-magnet AC motor that puts 129PS and 245Nm through the front wheels. This allows for a brisk 0 to 100kmph time of 9.9s, the top speed is limited to 120kmph. The SUV will do over 312km on a full charge as per the ARAI, a real-world range of around 230 km can be expected. Read about our Mumbai-Pune road trip in a Nexon EV here. The Tata Nexon EV Dark Edition is priced at Rs 15.99 lakh, again Rs 45,000 more.
The Tata Nexon EV Dark Edition is the beetr looker in our books, lately done to the contrast from the flurescent blue highlight carried over from the standard Nexon EV. The 16-inch alloy wheels recently added to Nexon have been done in black here
All the Dark Edition models get this chrome fender badge
The Neox EV Dark Eiditon has lost the blue windowline highlights for a brushed grey shade
Aside from the semi-digital instrumentation, the inetriors are the same as the Standard Nexon with the same black-themed changes. Again the blue-highlights specific to the EV add a nice contrast
All the Dark Edition cars get this black leatherette upholstery with the embroidered badge, grey contrast stitching and cross patterns
Tata Altroz Dark Edition
The Tata Altroz Dark Edition is available only with the petrol versions on just the top XZ+ variant. with the N/A petrol and iTurbo variants. Read our review of the Tata Altroz iTurbo here. The Altroz iTurbo is powered by a detuned version of the three-cylinder 1.2-litre turbo-petrol from the Nexon. The motor makes 110PS at 5,500rpm and 140 Nm at 1,500- 5,500 rpm and pairs with a five-speed manual gearbox, instead of the six-speed in the Nexon. The N/A petrol motor is the 1.2-litre Revotron 3-cylinder, as seen on the Tiago, with 86PS at 6,000rpm and 113Nm at 3,300rpm. The Tata Altroz Dark Edition N/A is priced at Rs 8.71 lakh and the iTurbo at Rs 9.36 lakh.
The Tata ALtroz Dark Edition carries a glossier black colour, although the black beltline is lifted from the original as is the dark tinted lighting
The chrome headlamps surrounds could have been black too, although the grey tint to the alloys make them the most attractive of the lot
The gloss grey centre section of the dash is now black, as is the lower portion of the cabin. Note the new button-less Harman infotainment, also fitted to the Nexon
Tata Harrier Dark Edition
Tata Motors has updated the Tata Harrier Dark Edition with this move. This package is offered from the mid-spec XT Plus version here, unlike the other with prices starting from Rs 18.04 lakh, an Rs 18,000 increase. The XT no longer can be had with the Dark package.
The Tata Harrier is powered by the FCA-sourced 2.0-litre diesel with 170PS and 350 Nm. This pairs with a six-speed automatic, available on the XM, XZ and XZ+ trims, and a six-speed manual. Notable features the Harrier comes equipped with are auto AC, keyless entry and go, tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, auto headlamps and wipers, panoramic sunroof, xenon projector lamps, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with JBL audio and semi0digital instrument cluster. The Harrier is also the only one to get the military-themed Camo package.
The 2021 Tata Harrier Dark gets quite a rich-looking blue tinge to its paint. The black additions are otherwise the same as before
Another change is the larger 18-inch alloys from the Tata, finished here in grey. Note the Harrier plaque also done in back above the rear quarter glass
The wood panelling has been replaced by a textured grey while the brown surfaces are now all gloss black here
