Tata Motors has launched GenX Nano in India for Rs 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This comprehensive update for Tata’s entry-level hatchback now sees it being offered in five variants, a functional boot lid and most importantly an AMT gearbox.
Tata Motors had exhibited this model as a pre-production concept at the 2014 Auto Expo. The GenX Nano is a facelifted version of the hatchback that was sold in India. It is being offered in five variants of which three are manual are two are automatic. The colour options inlcude red, purple, gold, silver, blue, white and rose.
The latest iteration gets cosmetic changes like redesigned front and rear bumpers, smoked headlamp clusters, tweaked air dams and spoiler at the back. Changes to the interior include a new three-spoke steering wheel and better quality inserts for the center console. The biggest and much needed change in the hatchback is the openable boot lid. The previous versions of the Nano did not have an openable boot but now it has been redesigned and there are 110-litres of usable space.
The other changes include a 24-litre petrol tank in place of the earlier 15-litre one. The other features in the top-of-the-line variant continue like the power steering, air conditioner, central automated locking, heater and a music system that provides Bluetooth, AUX, USB connectivity.
The GenX Nano is powered by the same 624cc twin-cylinder petrol motor that produces 38bhp of power and 51Nm of torque. This engine now comes paired to a five-speed automated manual transmission (AMT), while the other normal versions come mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Power is sent to the rear wheels. The AMT spec models have an ARAI efficiency of 21.9kmpl while the manual variants have a fuel efficiency of 23.6kmpl.
With the introduction of the GenX Nano in our country, Tata Motors have given existing Nano users an option to upgrade to this latest version by offering lucrative discounts on exchange and referral. Car buyers in India have now got this as another option to choose from apart from the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 AMT in the entry-level segment of cars.
