Both the Tata Altroz and the Nexon will get updated touchscreen infotainment units and no physical media buttons. Instead the cars will now come with their respective Nexon and Altroz badging on the dashboard.
A set of leaked images indicate that the Tata Altroz and the Nexon models could soon get updated infotainment systems by Harman. The first image, which appears to be a leaked photo of an internal presentation, shows a before and after photo of the Nexon’s dashboard. The image tells us the media controls positioned below the central air-con vents have been removed, and instead, now the car will come with a ‘Nexon’ badging on the dashboard. The Altoz will also get the same update, which is confirmed by the second image, which is a photo of the actual car’s dashboard, featuring the new unit and the Altroz lettering instead of physical buttons.
Now, in both cases, the media controls will be part of the touchscreen unit. However, we must tell you that while on the Altroz the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is offered from the XM+ variant and above, on the Nexon, it’s only offered from the XZ variant and beyond. The units will now also come with the Harmon branding on the touchscreen housing, which wasn’t the case before. The system in both cars also comes with features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, and of course, the company’s connected car system iRA, which is offered with the top-of-the-line variants.
