Repositioned as a “smart city car” the Nano has witnessed little visual changes in its five-year spell. The punitive automobile received chrome strips and a revised rear bumper for the 2013 model year in addition to new colors and a feature-added dashboard.

The functional hatch door is the most significant new exterior feature.

The upcoming facelift however features comprehensibly restyled front and rear bumpers with larger smiley-shaped intakes. The headlamp cluster has been revised to include new reflectors and the front foglamps are now circular. The most significant improvement comes through the functional bootlid.

Inside, a new steering wheel (possibly only on the top-end variants) and plusher trims are expected.

The AMT gearbox supplied by Magneti Marelli will be the talking point of the facelifted Nano. The unit is likely to use the same four-ratio setup as the standard manual unit and would come mated to the 624 cc two-cylinder rear-mounted petrol motor which currently produces 38 PS and 51 Nm of torque.

    Drop the name Nano, and call it SCC. Increase the price by 60 to 70 K with increase in electronics package and you have a new category! Think Tata Think (T3) this is no rocket science.
    On a separate note Tata must start a new corporate initiative throughout the organization including the Jaguar called T3 to promote commonsense.

      Absolutely, it’s time to through this crap away and rebuild a new car. They can borrow few things which proved good from this car and a completely new car can bring Tata back to the game.
