Tata Motors launched the new 2015 Tata Nano GenX in Mumbai yesterday. Prices start at INR 1.99 Lakhs* for the base XE variant with a manual transmission, while topping out at INR 2.89 Lakhs* for the top end XTA variant with the AMT (Automated Manual Transmission).

We’ve already gone about explaining the changes in detail, but here goes:

The most significant addition to the GenX has to be the  Magnetti Marelli-sourced 5-speed ‘Easy Shift’ Automated Manual Transmission. For easier progress in sticky traffic, it’s even got a Creep function.

Exterior styling has been smartened up with new, re-sculpted bumpers, while for the first time, the GenX adds an upward opening rear hatch to the Nano, which lends access to 110 liters of boot space (AMT version gets 94 liters).

The insides benefit from a new Latte finish for the dashboard in the top-end XT variants, two additional glove boxes, new, signature 3-spoke steering wheel, redesigned instrument cluster, updated seat fabrics, a Bluetooth-enabled AmphiStream music system with telephony feature and rear speakers. Fit and finish have been polished up too.

Other changes include a larger fuel tank with 24 litres of capacity,  more rigid bodywork etc.

The GenX Nano is powered by the same 624cc, multi-point fuel injected, water cooled, naturally aspirated, 2 cylinder gasoline engine with 2 valves per cylinder. The engine, mounted at the back, produces 38PS power @ 5500 RPM and 51 Nm torque.

 Variant wise pricing

In a bid to shift the Nano upmarket and revise its appeal, Tata is trying to pull of a Fiat Cinquecento, by offering a multitude of customization options, both on the outside and inside.

    Glad that you like them Satish. Yes, they’re pushing for an upmarket appeal with the GenX.

  • Satish says:

    Wow… I did not expect that customization options. And let me tell you it feels awesome. Its all lifestyle elements that have went into customization and all are quite economical (not sure if cheap). This would be a sole reason for many of the buyers. I bet there are many takers exclusive for sunroof and single red in all black alloys. Great job Tatas!
