Hi,

The Tata Nano is best car for the people wanting to upgrade from two to four wheeler.It has all the features required for a low cost reliable four wheeler.Though it offers 4 seater capacity the fact that its a rear engined vehicle due to which there will be discomfort Rear seat passenger.Maintenance costs will not be too costly as related spare parts costs will also be on lesser side.For long range of usage it will be very comfortable for two Pax and little bit uncomfort for Four. However this is only analysis from the features of Nano and actual success on road is to be checked.

Hi..

Nano is a car made for only city ride.. not for high way or a long run of 200Kms... due to rear engine.. the heat at rear seat can be felt, also it's grunt is like an 4S Auto riksha...

Till date no one vehicle has come with economical maintenance which has got rear engine....

Better u plz aproach a owners of Nano b4 making any decision...

Else i suggest u go with a used car like Zen, Alot or Vagon R u will get it in a same price...
