Somehow the white ceramic line spoils the look for me. Looks highly out of place especially for the black colour along the shoulder line and back. The rear is just too busy... No elegance in design. I would pick a Brezza over Nexon any day

Its much better to be bold, turn heads, be noticed.. rather than play it conservative/safe and go unnoticed: Specially by a brand that is trying to revive itself.

Love the way Tata is taking strides. Making Indians Proud. "After all Dil hai Hindustani".

Two things were the sour points of old Tata cars - the smiling face (no, they were laughing loud!) and tower tail lamps. Now the tail lamps are modified in all the new cars, now they have to get rid of that smile.

And a bit more lowered stance would have helped better, IMO.

Most of us agree that the Punto and Linea are among the most elegant of designs. But that didn't help with the sales.
For a late comer in the segment, it is probably more important to look radically different rather than elegant.

Don't know where the "Indian" got in the way. I am just stating my liking for the design.. I think there is more than just design for people to start buying a car.. Else Tiago, Tigor and Hexa would be flying off the shelf. Tata need to enhance the buying, delivery and reliability experience till which time even the best looking cars will be shunned

Palio, Punto and Linea being the case... (2 of which I have owned and loved them to the core...)

Tiago is just a well made Conventional Looking Small Hatch.. the Tigor is a nice desgn, but doesn't really stand out in the traffic.. and whenever I look at the Hexa I can't help remembering the Segment leader the Innova.. non of them are ground breaking Design.. something that the "Nexon" is

Exactly.

When you are late to the party, its better to dress out loud and get noticed. Else people just might miss noticing you.

I guess it'd be fairly easy to get 3M Car Wraps (or stickers) installed over the ceramic strips if one doesn't like them.

While design is a matter of personal choice, the original Nexon looks far better than what has been done to it in the image on the right ! A little smile on the face didn't hurt anyone.

Ground clearance has become a very important topic for most car buyers across segments - explains the hunger for "SUVs" in all price points. Every review talks about how a car is good to make it through bad roads or poorly designed speed breakers. So lowering the stance wouldn't help much in terms of sales.

I didn't mean to offend you. I didn't know that you owned a Punto/Linea until I saw your previous post just now.
All I meant was that a routine design might be lost in a fiercely competitive segment.
When it is so difficult to wean away customers from the market leader, even an excellent product and good customer service/experience may not be sufficient.
When you are a new entrant in such a segment, you probably need all of the above, plus radically different looks. I feel that Tata are trying their best.

Exactly.

One has to Get Noticed to enter into the "Consideration Set" of the customer. Especially if that brand in not a Maruti Suzuki in India.

The below images were posted by BHPians Car Architect and CrAzY dRiVeR. The Nexon looks much better with a little sheet metal change to the bonnet and a change in head lamp cluster design to accommodate the bonnet.

IMO its not the grill but the bonnet and headlamp design that should be changed for a more sharper front end.

But the design of the car is the first part, TATA have taken care that, i.e being different from the rest of the CSUVs/Crossovers. From few reports on how TATA responded for TD request for Hexa, it is evident that TATA is moving in the right direction w.r.t to buying albeit with odd shortfalls in expectations, next step would be to focus on the ownership experience.

He says Nexon as a product and not the buying and ownership experience since the product is yet to be launched.
