The all-new Tata Nano GenX is coming.
According to IndianCarsBikes, Tata Motors will be launching the Nano GenX on May 19. The Indian carmaker has done quite a lot to improve the bad rep that the Nano scored among the Indian masses. This all-new GenX model is set to wipe out the “cheap car” tag of this Tata city car and usher in some much needed solace for those behind the Nano project. Bookings for the Tata Nano GenX commenced in the last week of April, with a booking amount of INR 5000. The Nano GenX will be launched in the following avatars/trims: XE, XM and XT for the manual Nano, whereas the AMT-equipped Easy Shift version, in most likelihood, will come in XM and XT variants.
The AMT shall be reserved for top-end trims, only.
The Tata Nano GenX gets a host of upgrades over its predecessors and these include the Magnetti Marelli 5-speed Easy Shift AMT gearbox, new steering wheel, improved fit & finish, better exterior styling, newer cabin fabrics, new upward opening hatch, Bluetooth-enabled music system with rear speakers & telephony feature, manual Nano gets 110 litres of boot space (AMT version gets 94 litres), fuel tank now accommodates 24 litres, reworked instrument cluster and then some.
The instrument cluster is far more informative, now.
We do think that the Tata Nano GenX, especially the AMT version, is within a shout for better reputation as compared to its earlier self. That said, all will boil down to the pricing of this, the most affordable car in India. There is certainly more room for improvement, but with the Nano GenX, Tata Motors has made significant alterations to the model. It remains to be seen how the GenX gets along with some of its peers.
