Tata Nano, simply brilliant car
Pros : decent looks, mileage, brake
Cons : tyres, tank capacity, boot
I did a quite good market research before buying Tata Nano, test drive Maruti Alto, Hyundai Eon. I was very clear what I desired, I wanted to go with a car that has good mileage, decent appearance and under my budget of Rs 2.75-3 lacs. When I decided upon Tata Nano my friend suggested me ‘what people will say, I answered him whether I buy a merc or bmw or maruti car, I will be the one to bear EMIs and not people. So why go for hefty EMIs will loads of pollution, when covers all very well.
In the December month last year I got it home and since then have drove 4670 kms and this figure was achieved with effortless ease. With my budget I saved a lot of money as I it costed nearly 2 lacs for top model. The best thing about it is its excellent handling in city and open roads along with amazing parking space, which is too small considering its compact size. Although I cannot put a big luggage in the boot, but how many times I travel on longer routes, the space was sufficient also I had purchased it for city use and not long journeys. It delivers 20-21 kmpl city and 24-26 kmpl highways, what else one wants in these soaring times of petrol? The control is proper at high speeds and the brakes, though they are all-drums, works well. The car has enough space for 4 adults. It looks compact from outside but is very spacious compared to Alto and Eon, as per company 21 percent more space. Once I covered 350 kms with Nano, the longest distance till date, with 2 stoppages of 25 minutes each and there were no issues. Please do for efficiency, go for nano. One liner would be, BEST IN CLASS CAR.
