Tata Motors would launch the much anticipated Nano Genx tomorrow - May 19, 2015 - in the country. The new Tata Nano Genx would feature an automated manual transmission (AMT) unit and would succeed Maruti Suzuki Celerio as India's cheapest automatic car. The Nano Genx is expected to bear several cosmetic changes at the outside and multiple upgrades inside the cabin. Mechanics would be retained from the ongoing model, save for the AMT gearbox.
New Tata Nano Genx would be available in four trims - XE, XM, XT and XTA - in the country. Talking about the cosmetic changes in length, the Nano Genx would flaunt a new 'Smiley' shaped honeycomb front grille with redesigned bumper. There would be smoked headlamps to accentuate the sportiness of the small hatch. In addition, Tata has introduced a new 'Bright Red' exterior color with the Nano Genx to lure more buyers. At the rear, the exhaust pipe now sits at the left side of the restyled bumper against the current model's position at the centre. The new C-Pillar is also quite sturdy and rigid. It would be the first Nano to have an openable boot, with a space of 110 litres.
Side impact beams and a better front crumple zone would ensure maximum safety of the occupants in the Nano Genx. Inside the cabin, it would get a new steering wheel chrome AC vents and new instrument cluster. The top-spec model is also expected to feature front power windows, Bluetooth telephony and a rear parcel tray with integrated speakers. Mechanically, it would continue using the same twin-cylinder 624 cc engine, which would deliver a fuel efficiency of 23.6kmpl (ARAI Specified) with the manual variants, while the AMT variant would yield 21.9kmpl (ARAI Specified). The fuel tank has also been enhanced from 15-litres to 24-litres for better convenience. New Nano Genx is expected to be priced in a domain of Rs. 2.25 - 2.75 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom).
