Expert Test Drive Review

Tata Nano front door

The Tata Nano is the car that put its maker on the world map as a car manufacturer. When it was launched first in the year 2008, it created a lot of buzz because of its ‘most-affordable car’ tag. The launch of Nano resulted making Tata Motors instantly recognized whereas the Nano became a hugely famous car among Indians. As famous as it might have been back in the day though, the sales for the Nano never really took off as predicted initially. Since its introduction, the Nano has been given mild refreshments to improve its appeal.

And with the current model, Tata has done a commendable job of resurrecting the Nano for the Indian masses. This model has been vastly improved and most of the changes have been made keeping in mind the target audiences’ requirements while customer feedback has also been taken into account. The enhancements come in shape of new aesthetics while the major highlight of the car is the introduction of an optional AMT (automated manual transmission) and an openable boot. .... read more

On the inside, the interior of the new model has been revamped as well. The large windows add to the airy feel, while you sit upright and there’s ample of leg / knee space. There’s a new steering wheel like found on the Bolt and Zest twins, but in the Nano it comes without controls for the audio system. The Nano is decently equipped with features like keyless entry, a 4-speaker audio system that supports Bluetooth telephony, a comprehensive driver information display that has two trip meters, etc.

In the AMT equipped versions, there’s a new AMT console which eats up a lot of space. That said, there’s still enough space to keep your knick-knacks.

What we like
Extremely spacious cabin, large seats, plenty of legroom and head room, now has a boot
What we don't like
AMT does not get front cupholders, seats need to be more supportive, fit and finish needs to be improved

On the outside, the Tata Nano comes with smoked headlamps, new bumper with a ‘smiley’ grille and a black bezel between the lamps two headlamps. Side profile is largely unchanged from the outgoing car, but there are no alloy wheels on offer as of now in the new model. At the back, the bumper is redesigned and houses a similar grille as on the front. The Nano also gets a revised rear design, thanks to the addition of an usable tail-gate. Lifting the tailgate gives access to the boot – 110litres in manual and 94 litres for the AMT equipped versions.

What we like
Well profiled, looks appealing
What we don't like
Small 12 inch wheels are dwarfed by the tall profile of the car

The Tata Nano comes powered by a 624cc petrol engine that delivers decent amount of grunt in a car of that size. In the manual version, the engine feels peppy and sprightly whereas with the AMT, it can be best described as relaxed. Even then, the engine offers adequate performance for daily running in a city, while it’s also light on the pocket.

The engine is refined and the NVH levels are well contained. The broad power-band offers excellent drivability in the city. At higher speeds/rpms it does tend to run out of breath though.

What we like
Good real world driveability
What we don't like
Engine runs out of steam at higher rev

On handling front, the new Tata Nano does not feel much different than the outgoing version. The power steering is light and features an ‘active return’ system that makes steering the vehicle effortless at low speeds, Around corners, the Nano does roll a fair bit, thanks to the combination of its ride-height and short-wheelbase.

The ride quality is satisfactory on the Nano in comparison to its rivals. It’s not overly soft or stiff, and does the job of gobbling potholes and bumps in a confident manner. At slightly higher speeds, the ride may get too bumpy for the liking of the occupants, but it is not uncomfortable or bone-breaking stiff.

On open stretches, the Nano can cruise comfortably at speeds of 80-90km/h. Braking, however, continues to be its weakest link as the vehicle swerves under hard braking which is a cause of great concern.

The Nano is aimed to be a city car and that’s where its strength lies! Around town, the Nano is easy to maneuver and effortless to drive, especially the AMT version.

In the new model, Tata Motors has stiffened the frame and chassis of the Nano. The frontal crash crumple zone/area has been increased in length, while side impact beams have been incorporated on all the doors. The changes result in an overall increase in torsional stiffness and rigidity, showing Tata Motors’ effort to enhance occupant safety in the car. Basic safety features like ABS and airbags have been given a miss though!

What we like
Handles decently for a city car, passive safety features have been incorporated
What we don't like
Plenty of body roll at higher speeds, unconfident line under hard braking, no ABS

The Tata Nano may have failed to take off initially, due to a host of problems related to the car as well as the associated image. But I believe that the new Nano Twist with power steering is as good as the car can get and offers everything a prospective customer would want. Which is why I have gone out and bought this car. With the new power steering, the Tata Nano I think is what the car should have always been. The suspension and brakes too have been improved overtime and the Nano is genuinely nice to drive. The power steering system has made the car very nice to drive with nimble handling traits. One of the best parts about the Tata Nano Twist though is its turning radius. It is so less that it is comical. And the associated convenience factor is fantastic. The car can be maneuvered in the tiniest of spots and parking it in tiny spaces is a breeze. The clutch is light and the gearbox is nice to use with fairly accurate throws. All this combined with the smooth and efficient engine makes the Nano Twist a very nice car to drive in the city. But the fact that, this tiny car is also so spacious inside makes it even more appealing. It can seat five people easily and there is even a usable boot now! Combined with the warranty offered by Tata on the car now, it makes the Nano Twist a very appealing proposition over the famed Maruti Suzuki Alto 800.
