Tata Nexon Facelift set to make its debut on September 14
Tata Motors will unveil the Nexon and Nexon EV facelifts on September 14. Ahead of its official debut, the facelift version of the sub-four-metre SUV was also sighted many times in its entirety. It's been a long time coming, since we first saw it testing in March 2023, but the wait is now coming to an end.
Tata Nexon Facelift: Design
The Nexon facelift will undergo a dramatic facelift on the outside, obviously taking style aspects from the Curvv and Harrier EV designs. This is the Nexon's second significant makeover, and it will have a new split-headlamp configuration, a full-width LED tail-light, a new design for the alloy wheels, the removal of the Nexon's Y-shaped design elements, and much more.
The Nexon facelift's rear end has been significantly redesigned. The C-shaped protrusions, identical to those visible in the front, house the reflectors and are pushed to the edges, creating the illusion of a wider SUV. The back design is noticeably flatter than the previous model's cascading shape.

Tata Nexon Facelift: Powertrains
The Nexon makeover will retain the original 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine and 1.5-litre diesel engine. Gearbox options remain the same - 6-speed manual and 6-speed AMT - however the petrol engine now has a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. As a result, the Nexon facelift 1.2 petrol is projected to be offered with four different transmission options.
The diesel will retain the 6-speed manual and AMT transmission. With the Nexon makeover, the turbo petrol engine gains 125 PS of power and 225 Nm of torque and as for the diesel powertrain, it will remain unchanged at 115PS and 260Nm of torque.
Tata Nexon Facelift: Interior
We anticipate significant modifications to its feature set as a result of this makeover. The Nexon might have a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a fully digital driver's display if it gets a makeover. Ventilated front seats, automated climate control, an electric sunroof, and wireless charging are also available.
It might include up to six airbags and a 360-degree camera for safety. It may also receive advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) capabilities, making it the first subcompact SUV to do so. It already has electronic stability control as well as a tyre pressure monitoring system.
The Tata Nexon facelift is set to be released in mid-September, and it will compete with small SUVs such as the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet, and Mahindra XUV300. With the comprehensive list of improvements, we expect costs to rise significantly over the outgoing model, which is now priced between Rs 8 lakh and Rs 14.54 lakh.
