Not only this, by taking around Rs. 13,000 more, company is also providing new audio system along with Bluetooth compatibility, four speakers, glove box covers and keyless entry etc which are not present in Nano’s other ongoing variants. Also, the paddles have come closer as per the comfort of the driver. Its car boot seems small but still could match easily with the car size and also when people use this car for daily use then 80 liters of boot space would be enough for sure.
Nano’s outside glimpse is not so much stylish and trendy but it looks cool overall. Now with this twisted Nano Twist, attractive Purple color has been added in the color option along with Dynamic Blue. A new badge of ‘Nano Twist’ is the other remarkable change which makes this Twist XT variant different from its remaining variants.
