The Tata Motors has launched the GenX Nano, amid expectations that it would have a technical edge over its parent brand, the Nano Twist. Based on the 'infinity design' theme, in which the well-sculpted front and rear bumpers come with an infinity motif grille, giving the car a solid and planted look, the company has perceived this 'feature rich' edge to help it boost its falling budget-car sales.
While the company retained the engine capacity and power at 624 cc two-cylinder gasoline engine with two valves per cylinder producing 38 PS power and 51 Nm, compared to its preceding budget-car Nano Twist, the new one offers an automated manual transmission (AMT).
GenX with the AMT feature has also covered the sports mode for enhanced acceleration and "creep" feature for heavy traffic manoeuvrability and parking ease.
Over the car body, the GenX variant retains the ground clearance, wheelbase and the turning radius but is wider and longer than the existing Twist variant. The company has claimed the new model's interior space to have 4 per cent better shoulder room and 6 per cent better legroom.
Tata Motors back in 2013 had thought of positioning its brand, Nano, as a smart-car and added Bluetooth, a CD player cum radio with USB and AUX features along with digital information display to the new car to meet basic new generation expectations.
The company also stated to have included intrusion beams and anti-roll bar for effective safety.
