It gets projector headlights, a ceramic side finisher, contrast roof, LED taillights and LED daytime running lights in addition to a piano-black grille element.
Tata announced that the Nexon will be powered by a turbocharged Revotron 1.2-liter petrol engine or an all new 1.5-liter diesel engine, which will output 110 PS and 260 Nm of torque. A new 6-speed manual gearbox will drive the front wheels of the Nexon, while three driving modes will be available on the compact SUV.
The Tata Nexon will slot into the highly competitive sub-4m SUV segment comprising of the Ford EcoSport, Mahindra TUV300 and the soon-to-launch Maruti Vitara Brezza.
