The new Tata Nano comes with a number of improvements: better fuel efficiency, new premium interiors, new vibrant colours, best-in-class air-conditioning, lowest CO2 emission, among cars in India and most important all this at the same price.

2012 Nano is powered by a 624cc engine with 38PS (28 kW) and 51Nm (38 lb-ft), which is an increase of 3PS (2 kW) and 3Nm (2 lb-ft). Seems like nothing, but in car with such dimensions, it is a lot. The fuel efficiency is 59.7 mpg - 3.9 litres per 100 km. The top speed is 105 km/h, which is just enough for everyday city driving.

The ride and handling are also improved by revising the suspension with a front anti-roll bar, new steering system and booster-assisted brakes. All this comes as standard on the entry-level model.

The exterior is now available in different 10 colours, 8 of them new - Pearl White, Rouge Red, Aqua Blue, Neon Rush, Serene White, Meteor Silver, Mojito Green, Papaya Orange, Sunshine Yellow, and Champagne Gold.

There are three trim levels: Standard, CX and LX. It is priced from just 1.40 lakhs (€1 980) and comes with 4-year warranty. Check out the full equipment, below!
