1. Honda City Facelift

2. Tata Nexon/Nexon EV

The Tata Nexon was first launched in 2017 and since then this has been the second time it has received a facelift, and this time Tata has taken things almost 2 levels above the competition.

The only things that remain the same are the chassis and the engine and transmission options while a new DCA automatic gearbox has been added to the fleet.
