The Tata Nexon facelift has been spied numerous times in blurry pics till now but you might soon be able to see it in real life when it reaches a Tata showroom near you. It will get a refreshed exterior, new interior and features like a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen unit. The 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine is likely to be replaced by a 1.2-litre T-GDi petrol engine.

Tata is also expected to launch the Nexon EV facelift along with the internal combustion version. The exterior changes are likely to be the same as the interior ones. While the Nexon EV Max received the bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen, we can expect a newer driver display and more airbags than the current two. There are no details about the powertrain yet but we expect a tweak in performance and range of the car.
