Check out this digital rendering of the upcoming Tata Nexon facelift.
Tata Nexon has been a game-changer for the Indian manufacturer, and the car has brought a lot of young and enthusiastic audience towards the brand. A lot of that can be credited to the Nexon's coupe-like styling and the 5-star NCAP Crash-Test Safety Rating. The car has already been in the market for quite some time now, and now the company is looking to update the car with a simple cosmetic revamp and an updated features list. Here we have a rendering which shows how the upcoming Tata Nexon facelift would look like.

The digital rendering of Tata Nexon facelift.
Tata Nexon test mules have been spotted quite a lot of times around Pune, Ladakh and almost every test ground available in the country. Thus, we expect the company to launch the car early next year, somewhere between the Auto Expo and the BS6 deadline (between February and April 2020). To make things easier, CarToq has come up with a digital sketch to portray a much clear image of how good the things would look like with the upcoming Nexon facelift. Let's compare it with another rendering from out sister blog, IndianAutosBlog.
With a look at the test mules and the digital rendering of the Nexon, the picture becomes very clear. The car will shed its bubbly looks for crisper lines all around. The front end has a slew of changes, like a new bonnet with clam-shell design, sleek headlamps replacing the rounder unit seen on ongoing car, a re-profiled bumper in accordance to the sleek and sharp theme of the overall car, and a squared-off design for the fog lamp housings.

A similar theme is expected is to be carried over to the rear facet to incorporate sleeker LED units for the tail lamps as seen on the Harrier and Buzzard. On the side though, the only change that would be seen is a set of new alloy wheels. They are expected to come in a size larger this time with optional 17-inch rims, while Tata will retain 16-inchers for the lower trim levels. With minor changes to the chassis and no major mechanical upgrades to the structure, the car will retain its current delineation.
For Reference: The recent spyshot of Tata Nexon facelift.
The Nexon was recently spied with a new iteration of Tata’s steering wheel and a larger screen for the ConnectNext infotainment system, and we expect them to be the only physical changes to the car’s dashboard design. The option of a sunroof and an updated feature list will woo the buyers, as the Nexon will now come loaded to the brim.

The powertrains are expected to remain largely unchanged apart from inherent changes from the jump to BS-VI compliancy. As of now, the Nexon comes with two engine option to choose from, a 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo-petrol and a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo-diesel, and both the units’ belt out 110 PS of peak power. The transmission options include a 6-speed manual box and an AMT, which we believe will be carried over to the facelift with revised gear ratios. Expected to be showcased at the coming 2020 AutoExpo, Tata will launch the facelift early next year in Feb or March. Tata is developing an electric version of this compact SUV, and we aren't opposed to a JTP variant as well! The latter will sit on a tighter suspension and offer better tractability from the engine and would take on the likes of Hyundai Venue DCT.
