The car is now available in six different color variants that include - damson purple, dazzle blue, papaya orange, pearl white, meteor silver and royal gold. The Nano Twist XT comes equipped with a ZF-designed electric power steering unit (EPS) that uses a brushless motor. The brakes are dual circuit, vertical split operated by tandem master cylinder with vacuum booster. The front and rear wheels are 180 mm with drum brake.

Also, the Nano Twist XT comes with a new four-speaker AmphiStreamTM integrated Music System with Bluetooth, Aux-in and USB connectivity. A luggage space of 80 Liters is provided in this car behind the rear seat.

Coming to the safety concerns - The engine is located at the rear of this car. As a result, the load on the front wheels is low. Hence drum brakes at the front are provided instead of disc brakes. After the fire incidents, a lot of concerns were raised surrounding the Tata Nano's safety. On its official FAQ page, the officials have now shared that Tata Motors conducted investigations by a team of internal and international experts and found that the reasons for the incidents were limited to a few Tata Nano cars. The experts noticed instances of additional foreign electrical equipment having been installed or foreign material left on the exhaust system in these cars. Tata Nano Twist has been made more robust with enhanced features in the car’s electrical and exhaust system.
Unveiling the Nano Twist, Ranjit Yadav, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors, said, "The Nano Twist will redefine customer's driving experience in city traffic with the EPAS. It comes loaded with trendy features, exciting new colour and sporty interiors."

    First of all the Nano was meant to be the cheapest car.

    Ok. Now that it's not - Why would city users need a small car? - for parking ease.

    I actually know a business man located in Kochi who owns high end cars like Audi and Range Rover - but uses the high end version of Nano for 'City shopping'.

    If I was looking to buy a Nano 'twist' - here's what I would expect -
    1. I would want it to be available in a coupe (2 seater) model - more fun I believe especially as it's better than cramming 4 people in a small car.
    2. I would expect some sort of design variation/variety compared to the original 'cheap' car look.
    3. I would be willing to pay upto 2 lakh rupees for the coupe - yes style does matter in a city!

    Verdict: I would rather get a Maruti Alto/Chevrolet Spark for a little more cash than a Nano 4 seater.
