In the price of getting a used Nano, you can get a used M800 / Zen. But both these cars are not suitable for aged people (regarding ingress and outgress). Spark is a good choice, if you couldn't find one, look for Santro / Wagon-R

I would advice him not drive in the first place, but if you are comfortable with him driving around, Nano would make perfect sense as its easy to drive and light on pocket,only problem is getting a used one, you can still look for a brand new one as tata is giving out good discount's on all their product's.

I too agree upon this i.e buying a Brand New Car instead of USED car; as one of my friend had also booked a Tata Nano in Chennai at Tafe Reach Limited.

First of All I would suggest you to make your father drive a car only if he is completely comfortable and fit.
As per reviews Nano 2012 has been a improved version of the old Nano.Don't know whether you could get a 2012 version in the second hand market.Nano would have been a good car if it had power steering in it.
Spark would be better for old people since its easy to drive and has a power steering in it. Mileage would be an issue when it comes to Spark.
I would suggest you to try and get a Alto LXi from the second hand market. It would be easy to drive , reliable and easy to maintain.

Re: Used Tata Nano?

i would advice you to take nano 2012 new one.
you will not find any 2012 for second hand, also, older versions are slight hard with steering side.

yes, nano don't have PS.so it will be slight problematic to park it in small space for your father. but the positive side is that, he will easily sit in and out of the car. also, TATA is known for its driver seat comfort , which is also made nano a very good car.

but dont go with 800 or alto, as they are very low seated cars, may be not comfortable with your dad !

i will still tell you to have a driver if its fine for you, bcoz of his age and health, its not safe to drive at own.

Re: Used Tata Nano?

nano has fabulous rear seat space.
also, its doors are opening about 80 degree so, entering / exit will not be an issue.

if you go with some other car, you may have to spend more money or you have to buy a 2nd hand car.
if you have any good conditioned 2nd hand car then its OK. but still all will be agree to have a driver for him. so , IMO,get a driver and a nano!! it has mechanical steering, but who care ? as you have driver . and you can get CX version which is true VFM.
