Tata Motors, the country's largest auto maker, seems to be busy in the development of a facelift version of its iconic Nano hatchback. Sources have revealed that the upcoming model will be packed with several advanced features and a number of improvements. Industry experts believe that the upcoming model will feature a power assisted steering wheel, which will make driving Nano a breeze for the driver. Also, there will be many cosmetic changes in the current generation model, which will further add to its popularity in the Indian auto market.
Another key highlight of the 2013 Tata Nano will be that the model will come equipped with a CNG kit. Auto analysts are of a view that the incorporation of CNG kit will be the most significant enhancement in the new model as this fuel type is believed to be the cheapest, among the currently available options in the country.
Coming to the designing of the new model, the 2013 Nano will feature chrome strips on its front fascia. Also, the rear bumper of the upcoming model has been also modified in order to provide multiple air vents. Along with cosmetic changes, the upcoming model will also feature some improvements at interiors. The model is likely to come with dual glove boxes and an advanced music system, which will have Bluetooth and USB compatibility. Industry experts believe that the upholstery of the upcoming Tata Nano will be also of better quality and the centre console will be illuminated, making the new model it sportier. From the technical point of view, it has been reported that the Tata Motors will incorporate the same 800 cc petrol engine in its revamped avatar, but with a dual fuel model, which will make a significant difference.
Sources have revealed that the model will witness the Indian daylight somewhere by the end of July 2013, amid great buzz. It must be noted that the Tata Nano has managed to win the hearts of Indian audience by great miles and has emerged as a trend setting model all over the world. The launch of a facelift model of Nano will surely assist Tata Motors in consolidating its foothold in the entry-level hatchback segment of the Indian auto market.
