As an ongoing upgrade, the company has added a few important upgrades t the Nexon, which are not visible. This has been done to make the vehicle safer and also more user friendly. The projector headlamps of the Nexon have now been fitted with silicon pads. This has been done to endure that the wiring of the headlamps does not interfere with the projector units.
This move eliminates the risk of a fire due to accidental contact of these components. Secondly, the infotainment system software has been updated. There were complains about the touchscreen system hanging and also problems with bluetooth pairing. The key fob off the Nexon also gets a new plastic cover to enable a longer life for it.

Tata Nexon Design
The Tata Nexon is designed as a crossover. This is not very different from the concept shown at the Auto Expo. It takes a departure from the boxy styling and comes out more stylish and suave in the SUV segment. There is a large honeycomb front grille with humanity line. The headlamps seem like a part of the grille. The LED DRLs are in the headlamp cluster. The front bumper is quite large and the fog lamps are round with big bezels. The hood has a crowned look.
The side profile is very much like a crossover. It has three colours on it – a grey top and pillars, a white window line and then the body colour. The roofline slopes towards the rear. The rear also unique and very different from any other SUV in the market. The Tata Nexon will come with multiple colour options as well. The rear looks compact, and there is a neatly integrated rear spoiler also. The Nexon surely turns heads wherever it goes and looks really impressive and attractive.
Tata Nexon Colours
The Nexon is available in five colour options:
- Moroccan Blue
- Vermont Red
- Seattle Silver
- Glasgow Grey
- Calgary White
Tata Nexon Interior
Tata cars have always been spacious and so is the Nexon. This is also one of the biggest USP of the Nexon. In terms of space and features, the Nexon is extremely competitive. There is generous amount of leg room and headroom, both at the front and at the rear.
There are a number of features including keyless entry, push start stop, HD touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and reverse camera. Navigation can be connected from a smart phone. For rear passengers there will be AC vents with blower speed control and rear arm rest too.
The space on offer is good enough and the Nexon has more than sufficient space. Both the rows are comfortable enough to seat five people. The boot space too is good.

|Transmission||6-speed manual, AMT|
|Steering||Electric power assisted|
The Tata Nexon comes both in petrol and diesel. It has a 1.2-litre turbo petrol that delivers about 108bhp of power and 180Nm of maximum torque. The Tata Tiago also uses the same engine, but it gets a turbocharger in the Nexon, for better performance. The power output is also higher. It comes mated to a 6speed manual transmission. This is something unique in this segment for a petrol vehicle.
The other engine is a 1.5-litre diesel engine that churns out about 108bhp of power and it comes with best-in-class torque of 260Nm. The diesel engine is the most powerful one in the segment and this also comes with a 6speed manual transmission. This engine is a four-cylinder one, unlike the three-cylinder one found on the Tiago. Both engines get multiple driving modes which are Eco, City and Sport. The Nexon is a front-wheel drive SUV and it does not have an AWD system.
Tata Nexon Mileage
|Tata Nexon Mileage||Diesel Mileage||Petrol Mileage||Diesel AMT Mileage|

|Highway||19 km/l||16 km/l||18 km/l|
|ARAI Claimed||22 km/l||19 km/l||21 km/l|
The Nexon delivers good fuel efficiency. As the petrol is similar to the Tata Tiago, it should return close to 13km/l in the city and about 17km/l on the highway. At the same time, the diesel engine will return about 17km/l in the city and 20km/l on the highway at least.
