Tata Nexon has always been one of our favorite compact SUV due to its safety ratings. It is the first car to score a 5-star rating for adult occupancy in the GNCAP. The compact SUV has been in the market for almost three years with a minor facelift, now due to the BS6 regulations, it has undergone quite a major facelift. The major and minor changes on the New Tata Nexon will be explained to you in this blog below.
The changes on the exterior of the Tata Nexon 2020 are very much noticeable. It can be easily identified as the BS6 version. Firstly it gets the piano black finish on the grille. It now has a completely new headlamp unit with reshaped LED DRLs and new projector headlights. There are minor changes done on the front bumper and also on the fog lamp unit. The bonnet of the Tata Nexon 2020 is a completely new piece and resembles the Tata’s Impact 2.0 design.
From the side, it continues to have similar styling to the predecessor. It continues to have 209 mm of ground clearance and 2498 mm of the wheelbase. However one will easily notice is the new alloy wheel design. From the rear, the overall design remains the same as the BS4 counterpart. However, the taillights are reworked and now have the LED strips embedded nicely, which looks attractive. The Nexon badging is now shifted towards the middle, similar to Harrier.
The interior of the Tata Nexon 2020 much or less is similar to the predecessor. The interior theme is now somewhat cream colour dual-tone unit, unlike the silver theme seen on the BS4 counterpart. The upholstery is also an updated unit that looks fresh. It continues to have the floating touch screen infotainment system, electronic ORVMs, and other interior other bits. However, it now gets a new flat-bottom steering wheel.
The feature we like the most is that it gets ABS with EBD, dual airbags, and ESP as a standard feature across the variants. It also gets premium features such as cruise control, sunroof, tyre pressure monitoring system, digital instrument cluster, and rain-sensing wipers.
The Tata Nexon 2020 gets the same engine options as the predecessor, but now a BS6 compliant. The engine options are the- 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel. The 12-litre engine produces around 108 bhp power and 170 Nm peak torque, while the 1.5-litre diesel produces around 108 bhp max power and 260 Nm peak torque. Both the engines are mated with a 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed AMT gearbox.
The pre-facelift model was priced around Rs 6.58 lakhs(ex-showroom) to 11.1 lakhs(ex-showroom). The pricing of the Tata Nexon 2020 starts at Rs 6.96 lakhs(ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs 12.70 lakhs(ex-showroom) for the XZA Plus DT Roof (O) top trim. The price certainly has a hike over the BS4 counterpart but for the reason, we all know now. It competes against the Mahindra XUV 300, Ford EcoSport and Maruti Brezza.
