Tata Motors has amidst the entire lately developed buzz around the Nexon silently launched an updated 2019 Nexon. The new update brings a bigger touchscreen for the infortainment system and a new XT+ variant. The new XT+ trim is priced at Rs 8.02 lakhs and Rs 8.87 lakhs (ex showroom prices) and can be had in petrol and diesel.
The new XT+ trim replaces the existing XT trim and comes loaded with a long list of gadgetry and features such as projector headlamps with daytime running lights, front fog lamps height adjustable driver seat, 8-speaker system, rear A/C vents and a lot more.
