Tata Nexon BS6 Facelift || Review || MotoJunkie


Tata Nexon is a compact crossover SUV launched by Tata motors in 2017. It was based on Tata's X1 platform which also includes Tiago and Tigor. It is first ever crossover SUV produced by Tata, before Tata was into making proper SUVs. This car got attention in 2018 when Global NCAP safety test results were out and Nexon was the only Indian manufacturer car which score 5 out of five stars. Since then only We got to know about this test and safety is now given some consideration while buying a car. Every one brags about the safety of Nexon so I will now not say a word more and bore you out, except that it scored 18.2 points out of 20 in recent test. Now, Tata has given Nexon a comprehensive update or rather a facelift. So let us throw some light and visualize changes in 2020 Tata Nexon.

  Engine & Transmission

Nexon is powered by two engine options, a 1.2L Revotron engine and a 1.5L Revotorq engine. 1.2L Revotron engine is a 1199cc inline-3 cylinder turbo-charged DOHC petrol engine. It produces 120 PS of max power at 5500 rpm and a peak torque of 170 Nm starting just from 1750 rpm.
The 1.5 L Revotorq is a 1497cc inline-4 cylinder turbo charged DOHC engine producing 110 PS of max power and a peak torque of 260 Nm. Both of these engine are BS-VI compliant engines hence they are more refined, cleaner and greener than the older units which these have replaced. The power is transmitted to the wheels via six speed manual transmission or a six speed AMT. These are the exact units used in the BS4 models. As it is a crossover SUV the power is channeled to Front wheels only, which is a sad part. I wish we at least got a 4*4 variant option. 


Being a compact crossover SUV, it features a muscular and tough appearance. It even gets the highest ground clearance in its segment at 209 mm. Tata has recently updated all its car according to its new design language known as Impact2.0. This one gets some interesting changes. Starting from front, it now gets a thick piano black  bar running through the grille. It is similar as seen on Altroz and Tiago. Below it lies a chrome strip running through the and merging into headlamps. The headlamp has also been redesigned with some handsome two piece DRL strip on the side of Halogen projector.

The bumper has been redesigned as well and now is a sharper looking. The vents on the bumper featues tri-arrow design . The fog lamp housing has been redesigned and looks quite busy. Below that lies bash plate to boast that SUV appeal.
On the side, we get a coupe like roof lining running with blackened A, B And C-pillar to give that floating roof stance. There is still that signature white window lining which runs on three-quarters of the car. The plastic cladding on the door has been redesigned and features the tri-arrow. The major change on the side is the 8-spoke or rather double 4 spoked wheel-cover. I might sound confusing here but there are technically 8 spokes but spaced like 4 spokes, so pardon me here. 
On the rear, the major change is the clear lens LED tail-lamp cluster and a new rear bumper with a rear skid plate.


The interiors have been reworked according to the new design language and now offers a luxurious appeal. The steering wheel has been carried over from the Altroz with steering mounted controls and a flat bottom. The instrument cluster have been changed, it is now a fully digital unit. It is similar to Altroz. There is now dual tone interior with piano black finishes on door and AC vents. The seats feature the tri-arrow design. We now also get electric sunroof as an option. We just love sun roofs no matter we are going to use it or not. In the centre, we get a flaoting 6.5 inch ConnectNext infotainment display with touch-screen feature. It also have Android Auto and Apple Car play connectivity. Rear seats have been reworked too and now offer a plush feel with adjustable headrest. Boot carrying capacity is 350 litres which is enough for some long adventurous trips.
