Tata Nano Twist Active spied with refreshed interiors
Tata Motors are reviving the ailing Nano, and it seems that they are finally getting some success. Latest iteration of Nano, Twist comes in with power steering and it has managed to pull increasing number if buyers back to the brand. Now, to further their reach, Tata Motors is going to introduce new variants of Nano in the future.
One of them is the Nano Twist Active. Showcased earlier this year at the Auto Expo, this new edition is slated to sport Auto Manual Transmission (AMT) which proved its mettle on board the Maruti Suzuki Celerio hatchback. The car is currently being tested on Indian roads.
Besides existence of AMT on board 2014 Tata Nano Active, various other interior specifications have come to the fore. These include a new front fascia with a smiley shaped front bumper, a new set of fog lamps and turn indicators positioned above headlights. These indicators sport black coloured surrounds and clear lenses. Interiors also see better finish with electric power steering, a new instrument cluster and front power windows. Exteriors have also been enhanced to show an openable tailgate contributing to added boot space.
Engine specifications on board the Nano Active will continue in the form of a 2 cylinder 624cc engine producing 38 PS power and 51 Nm torque. Twist F Tronic will pair this engine to a Magnetti Marelli 5 speed automatic manual transmission. AMT costs less than the conventional auto gearbox which will allow the company to continue with its lower pricing.
A recent report also indicates that production has been stopped at the company’s Sanand Plant for a tool up for the start of production of refreshed Nano and new Nano variants.
