In a first, Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Shubham Nitin Ghute, has spotted what could be called the Nano Twist Active F-Tronic which gets the highlight features of both variants - the AMT and the opening bootlid. While the interior images show the AMT module, the picture of the rear shows the door handle and keyhole on the bootlid.

When launched, the new Nano variants will get revised exterior and interior design as well. The outsides see new bumpers with redesigned airdams and 'smoked' headlight clusters, while the interior will get a new 3-spoke steering wheel (not seen in these spyshots) with a similar design as the Zest's, wood-like inserts in the center console and center tunnel and new seat fabrics.

The refreshed Nano is expected to go on sale by the end of this year.

Competitors: Datsun redi-GO, Renault XBA, Maruti Alto 800
