2023 Tata Nexon, Nexon EV Facelift: Design
The exterior transformation of the new Nexon lineup is significant and has been inspired by the Tata Curvv concept. It gets redesigned DRLs, headlights, and front fascia. It now sports a revised front bumper housing bi-functional LED headlamps and also gets a fresh wheel design. At the rear, a new bumper design and connected tail lamps complete the look.
On the other hand, the design of the latest Nexon EV has also undergone extensive changes, featuring entirely redesigned front and rear sections. Similar to the outgoing generation, the facelifted ICE Nexon and Nexon.ev will get similar design but look more distinct due to addition of features such as the end-to-end LED DRL on the EV version.
The updated front fascia introduces a split LED lighting configuration with full-width DRLs positioned at the top, complemented by projector headlamps placed below on the bumper. The faux grille panel has been streamlined, and the air vents now adopt a trapezoidal shape. On the rear side, it gets a revised bumper, connected LED tail lamps and a roof-mounted spoiler.

While the interiors for the duo are more or less same, the electric version, however, gets a bigger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system adding a bit more premium quotient to the cabin.

Tata claims that the Nexon.ev facelift LR variant can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in just 8.9 seconds and achieve an electronically limited top speed of 150 kmph.
