Futuristic Design Inspired by Curvv and Harrier EV
The Nexon facelift draws inspiration from the futuristic Curvv and the captivating Harrier EV concepts, promising a visual spectacle that will leave you in awe.

An attention-grabbing full-width LED tail-light complements the rear, while redesigned alloy wheels add a touch of elegance to the overall profile. Notably, the facelift bids farewell to the previous Y-shaped design motifs, signaling a bold departure from convention.
Sleeker Interior with Futuristic Touches

The sleeker AC vents and a futuristic touch-based HVAC control panel are testaments to Tata Motors’ commitment to modern design. The SUV’s interior raises the bar with a spacious 10.25-inch touchscreen display that serves as the command center for an array of functions. This is complemented by an all-new two-spoke steering wheel and a futuristic digital instrument cluster that provides vital information in style.

Performance and Powertrains
Beneath the hood, the Nexon facelift retains its powerful 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine and the robust 1.5-litre diesel engine, ensuring an exhilarating driving experience. The petrol variant offers a spectrum of gearbox choices, including a cutting-edge 7-speed dual-clutch automatic for seamless gear transitions, a sporty 5-speed manual for the driving enthusiasts, an engaging 6-speed manual, and a swift 6-speed AMT for convenience. On the other hand, the diesel engine is paired with the trusted 6-speed gearboxes that deliver a blend of efficiency and performance.
Embracing Change: The Punch Naming System
Tata Motors is gearing up to bid adieu to the traditional ‘X’ nomenclature for the Nexon, making way for the dynamic Punch naming system. This shift in naming strategy adds a dash of excitement to the lineup, which comprises an impressive array of 11 trims: Smart, Smart Plus, Smart Plus (S), Pure, Pure (S), Creative, Creative Plus, Creative Plus (S), Fearless, Fearless Plus (S), and Fearless Plus.
