Apart from few aspects, most of the features in these trims looks to be the same, which eventually encourages its sales. Most of its features are retained, while few add ons have found their way into the comfort quotient nevertheless. It can accommodate five occupants and can keep all of them comfortable.

It is the same 624cc engine that is based on a single overhead camshaft valve configuration. It comprises of 2-cylinders and it receives fuel through a multi-point fuel injection system.

This high performance engine is mated with a four speed manual transmission gearbox that boost up the engine's ability to be quick and fuel efficient. At the same time, it is also available with an automated manual gearbox option that further eases the handling.
Ed's take: The Nano 2012 that had undergone revision in gear ratios, has enhanced fuel efficiency due to the new tall gearing. The Nano is the most fuel-efficient petrol cars that are today sold in India. The Nano CNG is more efficient.

Meanwhile, as per the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), the AMT version gives mileage of about 21.9 Kmpl, which is rather impressive. On the other hand, its CNG version can deliver a peak mileage of about 36 Km/kg, which is rather remarkable.

It gets all the aspects like a CD player with MP3 player along with connectivity options like Bluetooth, USB and AUX-In. At the same time, it also gets front and rear speakers, which can deliver a stereo quality sound output. However, these features are given as standard to the XT and XTA variants only.
Ed's take: The Nano is definitely a good handling car that has one of the most precise steering wheel. The steering wheel is direct and feels like a go-kart.

On the other hand, this vehicle is also blessed with a superior electric power assisted steering system that includes active return function, which further eases the efforts required to handle this vehicle.
Ed's take: The Nano gets seat belts for all the five passengers, the rear seat benchers get a two-point seat belt.
This facelift version has retained a lot of its signature features as well as gained a few additional functionalities. The safety quotient of this small car has always been a significant section that have the eyes of its buyers on. There is a central locking system that is integrated to all the doors. This is a feasibility that any driver would wish for as it enables to ensure the safety of all the occupants and at the same time, gives control to the driver in offering or denying access to or from the vehicle. The wheels have been mated with a set of radial tubeless tyres that have a sole benefit of not getting punctured that often and hence avoiding an abruptness in the drive. Furthermore, this series is provided with booster assisted brakes that play a keen role in making the handling even more efficient. At the rear end, there is a high mounted stop lamp integrated which is a very helpful feature. This light lets the other vehicles acknowledge the presence of this car even from very far off distances. This, therefore, avoids many bump-in accidents that are quite possible when otherwise.

Moreover, the vehicle is built with a strong immunity design as the protection of the vehicle is strengthened by strong steel beams. This helps in keeping the occupants too in the safe zone as the impact of accidents can be reduced immensely by such design.
