Tata Altroz, Nexon, Nexon EV Dark Editions launched. Harrier Dark gets an update

Tata Motors has finally launched the much-awaited Dark Editions of the Nexon, Harrier, Nexon EV and the Altroz. The new variants are available at the dealerships and booking are also open. The move to introduce the Dark Edition on other models is likely in a bid to boost demand with the Harrier Dark Edition having become a popular choice amongst buyers.

Tata Altroz Dark Edition

The Altroz is one of the best looking premium hatchbacks that you can buy in the Indian market. It is also Tata’s first attempt at a premium hatchback. Tata has introduced Dark Edition with the Altroz and the colour is known as Cosmo Black.

Altroz Dark Edition is available in the fully-loaded petrol XZ+ variants. Buyers can choose between a 86hp, 1.2-litre naturally aspirated unit or the more powerful 110hp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine – both with a 5-speed manual gearbox. With prices starting at Rs 8.71 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Altroz Dark Edition is about Rs 30,000 more than the standard petrol Altroz XZ+.

The alloy wheels are also finished in a dark tint and they measure 16-inches in size. It also comes with piano-black elements in the interior and the leather upholstery has tri-arrow perforations in deep Blue colour. The front headrests also get #DARK embroidery. The Altroz Dark Edition will be available only with XZ+ variant and you can have it with the naturally aspirated petrol engine or the turbo petrol engine.

Tata Nexon Dark Edition

Nexon Dark Edition is finished in Atlas Black. The Nexon Dark Edition is meanwhile available in the XZ+ and XZ+(O) trim in both diesel and petrol guise. The engine options are the familiar 120hp 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 110hp 1.5-litre diesel from the regular compact SUV with both available with a 6-speed manual or AMT gearbox option.

The Dark Edition comes with new 16-inch Charcoal Black alloy wheels. The exterior gets Sonic Silver highlights along with Matte Granite Black cladding. The interior is also finished in black theme with leather upholstery and tri-arrow perforations.

Tata Nexon EV Dark Edition

The Nexon EV meanwhile is finished in a Midnight black paint shade and retains its blue highlights that helps set it apart from the regular Nexon on the nose. The blue highlights on the beltline though are replaced by satin black inserts.

The blacked out theme carries to the inside as well, with leatherette upholstery with blue inserts and darkened trim inserts. Interestingly, the Nexon EV XZ+ trim additionally gets split folding rear seats – a feature only available on the fully-loaded XZ+ Lux trim of the standard electric SUV – and a tyre pressure monitor is standard fit as well. Prices start at Rs 15.99 lakh or about Rs 43,000 more than the Nexon EV XZ+.

Tata Harrier Dark Edition

Tata Harrier was the first product to come with a Dark Edition variant. It was supposed to be a limited edition product but it did extremely well. Due to this, Tata Motors decided to keep the new variant. Now, they have updated the Harrier’s Dark Edition with some cosmetic upgrades.

The updated Dark Edition models now get additional darkened trim inserts – most notably the window trim and Harrier badge on the tail on the exterior along with revised upholstery and larger 18-inch alloy wheels. Earlier, it was offered only with a 17-inch one. This gives a more sporty and aggressive stance to the SUV. Tata says that the Harrier Dark Edition is now finished in a new Oberon Black as against the outgoing version’s Atlas Black.

The roof liner and the sun visors are also now finished in black. Tata is using Benecke Kaliko Leatherette upholstery that has tri-arrow perforations with deep blue elements in it and there is #DARK embroidery in the front headrests. The Dark Edition will be sold in XT+, XZ+ & XZA+ variants of Tata Harrier.
