The updated Tata Nexon will be available with both BS6 petrol and diesel engine options. The electric variant will be launched on 28th Jan.
At an event in Mumbai, Tata Motors launched the 2020 update of the Nexon. The base petrol trim has been priced from Rs 6.95 lakhs, and diesel base is priced from Rs 8.45 lakhs, ex-sh prices. The price hike compared to the previous model is justified as with the update, Tata has brought in BS6 motors, modified the looks of the SUV and increased the features on offer.
On the outside, the Nexon now looks smarter with a sleeker grille, sharper looking headlamps, new LED DRLs, updated fog lamp housing and a new front bumper. The cosmetic changes help the SUV to look less bulky from the front than the outgoing model. Below are the detailed prices of Tata Nexon petrol BS6 and Nexon diesel BS6.

|Tata Nexon XE||Rs 6.95 lakh||Rs 8.45 lakh|

Tata has also introduced a new set of dual tone alloy wheels which further add freshness to the looks of the SUV. Changes on the side and rear are relatively limited. Talking about the overall design, the 2020 Nexon looks very similar to its electric sibling, except some EV-specific design changes.
Under the hood, the 2020 Nexon gets the same 1.2 litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel motors which were on offer earlier. However, now both the engines are BS6 emission norms compliant. The petrol unit churns out 110 PS and 170 Nm of max torque while the diesel guzzler dishes out 110 PS & 260 Nm of peak torque. Like before, customers have options to choose between 6-speed manual and AMT transmissions with both the engines.
Apart from refreshed interiors and instrument cluster, the highlight of the 2020 Nexon is the inclusion of sunroof and connected-car tech in the top-end trims. XZ+ (O) and XZA+ (O), both now come with an eSIM which opens up various possibilities associated with connected car features. Tata has baptized its connected car suite as iRA (Intelligent Real-Time Assist ) which allows customers to use their smartphones to lock/unlock their car, turn on AC, share live location of the vehicle, check car’s data and much more (overall 35 connected car features).
Since its launch, the Nexon has been delivering consistent sales, month over month. The fact that it was the first Indian car to get a 5-star safety rating further increased its fanbase in the country. Just like before, the 2020 Nexon will be competing with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Ford Ecosport and the upcoming sub 4 metre SUVs from Kia Motors & Renault.
