The facelifted Xenon could get minor cosmetic upgrades and engine tweaks.

Given that the Delhi NCR has a ban on diesel-powered cars with engines displacing over 2000 cc, Tata could introduce a sub 2.0L diesel engine for products that offer the 2.2L VARICOR turbodiesel unit, which includes the Tata Xenon. As for the 3.0 common rail turbodiesel engine, it could get slight engine tweaks for better refinement and fuel efficiency.

Details on the cosmetic tweaks are also scarce. It could feature a new front bumper design, revised grille and headlamps and new wheel cap designs and could include an Harman infotainment system.
