Indian indigenous automobile manufacturer Tata Motors is working on a facelift (2020) version of the Nexon and the crossover compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) has been spotted again. The upgraded Nexon sports a new front fascia, while the other design aesthetics are generously borrowed from the Harrier. The 2020 Nexon has a sleek, trapezoidal grille along with slim projector headlamps. The car is also expected to get redesigned alloy wheels and taillights, though none of these have been confirmed.



The 2020 Tata Nexon is expected to be hauled by the same diesel and petrol engines that power the car’s current version. The 1.2-litre petrol motor produces 110PS maximum power and 170Nm peak torque. The 1.5-litre diesel engine, on the other hand, outputs 110PS maximum power and 260Nm peak torque. Both motors are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox with automated manual transmission (AMT) available as an option. The 2020 Nexon will conform to the upcoming BS-VI emission standard.



The features of the 2020 Nexon are likely to include cruise control, automatic headlamps, and a coloured multi-information display. The touchscreen infotainment system with phone app connectivity from the existing Nexon is expected to be retained in the facelift version, along with climate control, Harman audio system, keyless entry, push-button engine start and stop function, and steering-mounted controls.


The 2020 Tata Nexon, according to industry sources, is expected to command a premium of around ₹20,000 to ₹1 lakh over its current ex-showroom price of ₹6.58 lakh. The car will continue to lock horns with the Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport, and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in its class.



Tata is likely to introduce the Nexon facelift version at the 2020 Auto Expo, with sales commencing soon after. Tata also has plans to introduce an electric version of the Nexon in the first quarter of next year. The car will be based on the Nexon facelift.
