Spied – Tata Nano 2013 caught fully undisguised

Posted on: Apr 29, 2013 - 5:23pm IST

The Tata Nano 2013 is the model year refresh which is expected to give the compact city runabout a shot in the arm before a major overhaul comes to the brand’s rescue.

Overdrive.in has come up with the fully revealing spyshots of the car that was caught by one of its readers, Mr. Shubhankar. The car was busted when it was being filmed for the new ad campaign.

The car’s rear is consistent with the test mules that were spied previously. Interestingly, the Nano 2013 incorporates the looks of the subtly different Tata Nano Concept that was showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo last year. The chrome strip along the bonnet lip, a similar strip just above the rear bumper, and a ventilated rear bumper are all borrowed from the Auto Expo concept.

There is a new blue exterior color option in the lineup which we think looks cool! The rest of the car remains the same as the Nano 2012, including the interior. Unlike the current car, the 2013 model is expected to have a proper hatch door but we can’t see any external provision to open it, perhaps it is opened through a release mounted near the pedals?

Apart from the current petrol version, the 2013 Tata Nano would be available with a CNG variant and a diesel variant, but not from launch day. The diesel engine is a 800cc turbocharged twin cylinder unit which is likely to produce 40 bhp of power (according to information provided by Garret, the turbocharger supplier).

The Nano 2012 was a significant improvement from the previous car and that puts a lot of weight on the 2013 iteration’s shoulders to be an even better package. The filming of the ad suggests the Nano 2013 is not far away from its market launch.

    I Love Tata Nano If Tata Nano need to change the car dashboard like newly lunch Vista D90, Nano have to modify Seats quality and luggage space. Place the battery at new place. Give easy fuel point.

    That blue colored Nano really looks super cool at least in the pics. Hope to see that soon in flesh. True that 2012 model was a very good improvement from the previous iteration in interior plastics, engine noise and the A/C was a great chiller.

    I doubt this would have a open-able hatch.

    Wish Tata had some sense and launched the diesel variants by now which would have shown the real potential of this. This ain’t a highway car I mean the petrol engine at least.

    I’m already impressed from Nano’s day one, and more feathers added to the cap after the special edition. But I wonder why one of the Nano’s ad featuring Dhanush has never made to television or did I missed?

    Not only this variant of the Nano, but also the diesel variant,with heavily disguised radiator areas, have become a common sight on my daily evening stroll. These were always accompanied by a convoy of arias on the ajmera road,pimpri, pune which is at a walking distance from the TATA motors factory.

    I really like what I’m seeing here. The one in blue looks really seductive and super cool ๐Ÿ™‚

    The 2012 Nano was a huge improvement over the earlier versions, it was niggle free, offering surprisingly very good build quality and kit for its price point and created a bunch of satisfied customers. Now, the 2013 Nano looks the perfect city car for me.
