SPIED: 2013 Tata Nano Caught; Comprehensive Refresh Planned

Tata Nano is not really having the best of times for a while. The car’s sales figures are dismal to say the least and Tata Motors are looking pretty much down the barrel with the Nano.

But they are a resilient company and they are looking to revamp the Nano for good. Similar to last year we will see an annual updated 2013 version of the car. Many mules of the car have been caught earlier but these are the first conclusive pics, shared by Indiancarsbikes.in, which reveal the changes we can expect.


  • The boot lid gets a chrome strip to give it some amount of premium-ness.
  • The glove box on the dashboard which we saw on the Special Edition Nano will now become standard. Hope that is better finished than what we witnessed on the Special Edition Nano.
  • The rear gets additional vents for added cooling.
  • The speakers will be integrated in the dashboard.
  • The rear bumper will get added skirting
  • The rear parcel tray will also get a provision for speakers.
  • The stereo will be integrated in the dashboard.
  • We also expect some new colors to be offered for the new Nano
  • The C pillar of the car instead of being bare metal will now be covered
  • The console is also expected to go through a mild makeover.


The 2013 Nano would not become bigger in size, it is just expected to get better in quality. Nano has been a gift from India to the world showcasing our engineering prowess. It’s a pity to see the fact that car has not managed to take off in its home markets despite being very competitive. We will discuss the various reasons sometimes later, probably!


Nonetheless, Tata will be hoping for a turn of fortunes with this new 2013 edition of Nano. And, with this we also can be rest assured that the other upcoming variants – Nano CNG and Nano Diesel will carry all these changes. And considering the current condition of sales of Nano, we do not expect Tata to increase the prices a wee bit on this tiny little hatch. Expect the launch to happen pretty soon.
