Tata Nexon Exterior
The baby SUV looks modern and fresh, regardless of whether it follows the exact design cues of the concept vehicle. Its contemporary and elegant appearance is a result. Many of the design elements seem to be inspired by Tata’s latest age vehicles, such as the Tiago Bolt, Bolt and Zest. It has a bold front and is accented with lots chrome to add bling.

For that matter, the front features a piano-black grille with integrated sleek LED headlamps on each side. Daytime running lamps are also included. The company’s logo draped in chrome in the centre gives it a strong appeal for young customers. The roofline curves towards the rear, making it appear like a coupe that has been merged with Tata’s symbol of strength and functionality. The tailgate is a unique creation by engineers at Tata Motors. It has conical-shaped tail lights that seem to have been meticulously designed. It is equipped with 16-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels.
