Tata Nano Gen X Road Test Review

Tata’s latest shot to make Nano more popular culminates in the form of Gen X variant. We get behind the wheels to find whether it succeeded or not.

Tata Nano GenX Review

Just like human beings, Tata Motors seems to be engaged in an eternal quest. Whereas for mankind this quest relates to find something happiness-bringing elusive else, in case of Tata Motors there hasn’t been any such baffling with continuous improvement of its stable topping its quest agenda. In line with this perennial revision process that now symbolizes Tata Motors working philosophy, company has launched Gen X, another Nano variant but with the convenience of automatic transmission. Now whether new Gen X will able to make fortunes shine brighter on this currently ailing proposition or not is what makes rest of this road test story exclusively brought to you by Ecardlr. 

Engine, Transmission, & Dynamics

We set off to take Nano for a spin to find out the difference the automatic transmission has made to it. The addition of new automatic transmission has made a lot of difference in the way Tata Nano Gen X drives and behaves. It has now become more comfortable and thanks to the addition of power steering, driving the Gen X is child's play. Throttle inputs are responded well and there is no hesitation whatsoever in the way the entire engine and gearbox works. In fact, it has come across as a pleasant surprise as we didn't expect the AMT to behave in such a nice manner. You there are some grouses; the chief one is the lack of power can we think that I should have done with the bigger engine here. Overall the addition of automatic in the Gen X is a big stride forward by the Tata Motors and it should benefit the sales of Nano in entirety.

A quick sneak into the specification sheet of this new Nano variant reveals that Nano Gen X coms with similar suspension and tire specifications. , Nano looks quite skinny in its pretensions especially on the front where the tread is 135 mm wide. With the power steering option Tata could have bettered Nano by endowing its frontage with wider rubber however company seems to be more interested in keeping the overall cost factor in check that would have been gone up with the extra wide tires. Also as automatic addition has already upped the retail price of the model, Tata Motors may have reserved this wide tire ace and even disc brake option for the next upgrade.

Design, Style, and Interiors

Inside the cabin the fresh and airy feel of the Nano has been intact with Gen X feeling equally roomy and spacious. The difference, however, has been made on the centrally located instrument cluster that now comes with host of added features.Gen X  comes with the added information display that gives the driver about the crucial information like Distance to Empty and Average Fuel Economy in addition to trip-meter and odometer. LED display of digital clock along with the bars-type display for fuel gauge and temperature control has also been included in this latest iteration.

Dash integrated sound system is also fairly equipped as it runs all the formats including CD/MP3/AUX/USB though sound quality is average even at its best. Dual glove boxes with proper lid are feature retained in Gen X as this has got considerable admiration at its inception in the last upgrade of Nano. Seats are wide, comfy and surprisingly roomy. While front seats have sufficient space, it is the rear bench that has won accolades for its overall comfort and convenience. Wide opening doors and high-set rear bench are sort of benchmark when it comes to the ease of ingress-egress and Gen X packs in all this good stuff.

Overall Verdict

Undoubtedly Nano Gen X is the huge leap forward by Tata Motors and thankfully in the right direction. This is the change in the right direction and inclusion of automatic transmission has made the deal even sweeter than before. Now we feel that now Tata Nano has almost got it all what makes it a complete city-friendly effortless car. Still being an Indian we would like to have many more features in Gen X like wider tires, more capable engine, and of course, disc brakes. Priced in the bracket of Rs 2.06 – 3.03 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), Nano Gen X is definitely a car you should take a long hard look at.
