The 2013 Tata Nano facelift model gets stylish chrome strips on the front and rear ends, while the bumpers have been redesigned. The exterior design is mostly same as compared to the outgoing model, however the little changes definitely have definitely refreshed the Nano's overall style statement. The rear bumpers are now provided with bigger air vents that would ensure enhanced cooling of the car's rear-mounted engine.

Considerable design changes are evident in the interior setting of revamped Nano model. For instance, a new glove compartment has been provided in the entry level small car. The reworked Nano comes with refined fabric, trim and colour changes in its interior cabin, along with more comfortable seating arrangement than the outgoing model. The top-end Nano trim will come equipped with an integrated audio system with CD, MP3, Aux-in, USB and Bluetooth capabilities. The car stereo system has been coupled to two speakers that are placed on the dashboard. Tata Motors have worked hard on making its cute Nano more refined and sophisticated, and their efforts have paid off nicely.

It is going to be interesting to see if the updated Nano is able to drive sales for Tata Motors in the Indian auto market. The 2013 Nano facelift is expected to come with a marginal increase in its price tag. At present, the company offers its Nano range within a price band of Rs. 1.5 lakh and Rs. 2.17 lakh in the country.
