Pros : Mileage, small size,

Cons : Poor pick Up

Look and Style I was thinking to buy a small compact car at an affordable price. Then I came to know that Tata is launching its new Tata Nano with improved features, so I waited for it and now I have owned it. Tata Motors has done the great job at exteriors of this new Tata Nano that makes it more stylish and quite comparable to other premium small cars. Comfort Looking towards its interiors, the new Tata Nano is more comfortable with soft hues than before. The interiors of the car allures with the three different exciting color tones. Pickup The new 2012 Tata Nano is not a powerful car but still it offers a decent pick up. It takes around half a minute to cross the mark of 100 kmph and capable to touch the top speed of 106 kmph. Mileage Talking about its mileage as per the company the new Tata Nano offers the mileage of 25.4 kmpl as compared to its earlier 23.6 kmpl. Looking at this figure it is the most fuel efficient car of the country. Best Features Feature that I like the most is that its compact size that renders it get parked easily. Other than this its quite amazing that Tata Motors offer the new features at the same price. Further it is a fuel efficient car that make it pocket friendly. Needs to improve The only area where this compact car lacks in feature is that it generates very low power. Overall Experience Overall being the cheapest car of the country, the features that it offers are amazing. Its quite amazing to add such number of features at such a low price. In my opinion those who are looking for a hatchback Tata Nano 2012 is a great deal.

    I am extremely sorry to state that all these tall claims of such a fabulous mileage of 23.6 Kms which has apparently now been increased to 25.4 Kms per litre are far from the truth. I bought a Tata Nano on 9th November 2009 and the wretched car gave me a miserable mileage of just 10.5 Kms per litre in city traffic. After one and a half torturous years of correspondence with Tata Motors and several test drives during which time I was able to conclusively prove to them with unshakeable evidence in black and white that my Nano gave me a pathetic mileage of just 10.5 Kms per litre Tata Motors agreed to change the engine of my Nano in April 2011. Imagine my shock when the Nano with the new engine returned a even more pathetic mileage of just 9.5 Kms per litre from April 2011 till date. I have again gathered conclusive evidence to prove beyond an iota of doubt that my Nano is returning a pathetic mileage of just 9.5 Kms per litre. If any reader would like to have a look at the data gathered by me please send me a mail at It is absolutely shocking to note that when the ground reality is that my Nano is returning only a pathetic mileage of 10.5 Km per litre initially and subsequently 9.5 Km per litre after change of engine, Tata Motors is stating that the Tata Nano gives a mileage of 23.6 / 25.4 Kms per litre. Is there any comparison between 10.5 Kmpl / 9.5 kmpl and 23.6 kmpl / 25.4 kmpl ? A harassed & frustrated Nano owner S. Prabhakar 98407 27528

    Sorry to read it. But my 2 years experience with my NANO is very good. It never has given below 18kmpl.

    I am driving Nano cx from the last 3 years .My car is giving a milage of 21KMS to 25 KMS per ltr. It is the best car in its class. Your driving may not be proper. You might be using car for the first time . Learn driving then look performance of Nano.

    Please do not compare your 2009 model with the 2012 model. The newer model is supposed to be better, as claimed, and I am sure it will be true. Tata Cars are really good, devoid of all nonsense. My March 2002 Indica V2 has done 135000 km, engine is unopened, highway mileage with ac is 18-20 kmpl, local 15-17 kmpl with ac. Space is voluminous and ergonomics are better planned than Honda City, believe me. Getting in and out of City, a tall person or a sikh gentleman bangs his head / ruffles his pagri, none of this nonsense in Indica or Nano. Tata Cars need better marketing effort. I have no regrets having bought Indica V2,

    I agree 101% with Mr Nalin Kishore - our Nano is just 3 weeks old, nearing 800 kms, not even gone through 1st service - already gives me between 16-17 kms/litre, depending on driving and traffic conditions - the AC is fantastic for an engine with this power - yes of course the car does not have the pick up of an alto, but just see what you pay for it.....WORTH EVERY LAST PAISA.

  • Abhishek panchal |30 Nov,2011 07:42:02 PM

    i completely agree with Nalin Kishore there might be some problem with ur nano in 2007 i sold my indica that time it use to give more than 20kmpl without ac highway(diesel). now i have tata indigo petrol. as it is petrol car it gives 10-11kmpl in city(with ac) &14-15 on highway, i know it is low but what u expect 4m petrol sadan

    I had purchased NANO on January-2011, Sorry to say that TATA NANO milage is very bad about 10-11KMPL in city. Pickup is bad, Most bad part is its AC . I had to repaire/taken to the service center 4 times and still it is creating problem, cooling is not good, and almost Rs.1000approx. i had to pay per visit. sill not working (it is in warranty period and i had to pay for electrical wireing & other parts.)

  • Jayraj Pathak |05 Dec,2011 10:27:15 AM

  • O. K Saha |09 Dec,2011 10:58:59 AM

    worst design to expose engine just like auto tempo

    RAJESH |18 Mar,2013 07:20:48 PM

    Please just think what you paid,...... and don't compare with other cars

  • lokesh |09 Dec,2011 12:12:38 PM

    it is a nice but not a fabulous car due to its pickup power

    sanjay mehra |21 Mar,2012 08:32:54 PM

    If it is a fabulous car that you want, then pay more for it and get it from some other company. Nano has created a whole new market for people who could never imagine owing a car. Ask a marketing fellow or a blue collar employee if he would mind small problems for the pleasure of owing a car with a AC at Rs. 202,000/ with a down payment of Rs.24000/ and monthly instalments of Rs.4,000/ and then you will get your answer of who is the actual market for this car. It is an excellent buy at the price as a second car, student buying first car, people upgrading from a motorcycle. It is not a racing car and its engine is too small to give anything but reasonable airconditioning.

  • Soumen Chakraborty |06 May,2012 09:01:00 PM
