Tata Motors is all set to launch the second facelift of its popular subcompact SUV, the Nexon, in the Indian market later this year. The first facelift of the Nexon was introduced in early 2020, and since then, the car has received several updates and new variants. The upcoming Nexon facelift will feature significant changes to its exterior and interior design, as well as some new features and options.

New Royal Blue Colour Scheme
The Nexon facelift was recently spotted during the shoot of its TV commercial, revealing its exterior design in full glory. The spy images show that the Nexon facelift will sport a new Royal Blue colour scheme, which was recently added to the Nexon lineup.
Major Makeover for the Front End
The front end of the car will get a major makeover, with a slimmer grille, a floating Tata logo, and a split LED headlamp setup. The sleek DRLs will be positioned on the bonnet line, while the main headlamp clusters will be housed within the front bumper. The bumper will also feature triangular pods on either side, which could house fog lamps or air vents.
Unchanged Side Profile with New Alloy Wheel Design
The side profile of the Nexon facelift will remain largely unchanged, except for a new alloy wheel design. The wheels will have a dual-tone finish and a five-spoke pattern.
Thorough Revamp for the Rear End
The rear end of the car will also get a thorough revamp, with a flatter tailgate, redesigned LED tail lights with an LED light bar, and a reprofiled bumper. The roof-mounted spoiler will be reshaped and wrapped around the C-pillar, while the rear wiper will be tucked underneath it. The car will also retain its roof rails, shark-fin antenna, and turn indicators on ORVMs.

The Nexon facelift will also offer the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine options as the current model, with manual and AMT transmissions. There are also reports of a new dual-clutch automatic transmission being introduced in the future.

However, these details are yet to be officially confirmed by Tata Motors.
