Tata Nano is a compact city car that might make the dream of owning a car come true for the poor people of the world. Tata Nano is a four seater ultra-cheap car with good fuel economy. Nano is available in the standard Nano, mid-range Nano CX, and luxury Nano LX models.
Existing Tata Nano models come with 2 cylinder 624 cc engine mounted in the rear of the car offering a maximum power output of 35 PS at 5250 rpm. Tata Nano has a four-speed manual transmission system. Nano models targeted for the European market called Nano Europa will come with 3-cylinder engines to provide more power.
Tata Nano lacks features like ABS with EBD, Power steering, and airbags. Nano standard models offer very little, they lack Air conditioning, Power windows, and radio. If you need these features, you have to pay a bit more for the higher models. Tata Nano CX comes with air conditioning while Nano LX adds front power windows and central locking.
When buying your Tata Nano, it is a good advice to buy what you need, do not rely on an upgrade. For example, you cannot fit an a/c into the base Nano. So, if you want a/c feature buy Nano CX or Nano LX.
Tata Nano LX is equipped with cup holder, anti glare inner rear view mirror IRVM, and rear and front fog lamps. Also available only in the Tata Nano LX luxury model are Trip meter, rear spoilers, charging point, and body coloured door handles.
