Tata Nexon has witnessed a replacement of the regular tri-arrow grille with bi-arrow design. However, this grille will be only available on higher variants
Earlier this year, Tata Motor has launched the facelift Tata Nexon. The new model comes with some significant exterior updates. However, recently, it is reported that Tata Motor will include a small design update for the existing Nexon model. Instead of the old tri-arrow grille, the new Nexon will adopt a new tri-arrow grille design. This design update has been confirmed by Tata Motor via its notification to its dealerships.
Tata Nexon will come with a bi-arrow grille design instead of the current tri-arrow grille
Since its debut, the grille of the Tata Nexon has been a topic for discussion since the tri-arrow pattern looks similar to the Mercedes-Benz’s widely-recognized three-point star logo. In the new model, Tata Motor has decided to make a change to make Nexon’s grille more distinctive.
On the existing model, the front grille sports seven tri-arrow elements. However, on the new version, these tri-arrow elements will be replaced with seven bi-arrow highlights on the grille. Even though one arrow is missing, the grille design still retains the symmetry approach. On each side, there will be three bi-arrow signs pointing outward with one bi-arrow element on the centre pointing upward
However, the twist here is that Tata Motors will not include this new design element across the range. Instead, the bi-arrow grille design is limited to be used on the top-spec variants from XZ+ trim upwards. For the rest, Tata Motors will continue to apply the old bi-arrow design.
Tata will offer this new design element for the upper variants only
The facelift Tata Nexon is available with two choices of BSVI-ready engines, 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. While the former is capable of making a top power of 118 BHP and maximum torque of 170 Nm, the latter’s power outputs are rated at 108 BHP and 260 Nm. There are two transmission options including a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed AMT gearbox.
Tata Motor is currently carrying out testing on the new dual-clutch automatic gearbox on the Nexon. This gearbox unit is expected to be the Punch-sourced 7-speed DT-2 DCT which will also be used on the Tata Altroz. In addition, earlier this month, Tata has launched the new XM variant to the range at Rs 8.36 lakh. Tata Nexon is currently available from Rs 6.99 lakh to Rs 12.69 lakh.
