It is no secret that the Nano entry level compact car hasn’t really managed to leave a good impression on the minds of entry level compact car buyers in India. Call it the effect of various fire-incidents that marred the image of the car or the effect of a marketing campaign that went really wrong. Whatever the reasons might be, the truth is that Tata really needs do something to revive the fortunes of the “world’s cheapest car.”
It has emerged that Indian passenger car and CV maker Tata Motors will launch the Nano facelift within the next ten days. CarWale says that other than the launch of the facelift, the Nano is also looking all set to get two for more rounds of updates within the next few months.
Talking about the above updates, the car might get a CNG variant, power steering and features from the special edition variant that was launched earlier. This means that the car could get features like dual glove boxes and a USB compatible music system.
The Tata Nano facelift has been spotted on numerous occasions and we hence know what the car looks like. The 2013 Tata Nano facelift comes with chrome strips on the bonnet and at tailgate, just above the bumpers. The rear bumper gets more air vents and this should help in better cooling of the diesel variant’s 800cc oil burner.
The car also gets a new blue exterior color option. The interiors too are being expected to get minor updates such as an upholstery change, a revised centre console and probably an updated features list.
It remains to be seen if the addition of new features, along with inclusion of a CNG variant in near future would enable the Nano to have a better showing on the sales charts.
