In its new avatar, the least expensive car of Tata Nano GenX is packing more features than we had expected. There is a functional boot lid in place and comes with Automated Manual Transmission. With the introduction of new AMT, GenX AMT is expected to become the most affordable automatic car in India, with a price tag of around ₹2.7 lakh.

Under the hood, new Nano GenX is likely to have the same 624 cc twin cylinder petrol engine that can churn out a 38 PS peak power and 51 Nm peak, and is likely to be offered in both manual and AMT variants. While Nano Genx XE, XM, and XT are likely to be available with a manual transmission, the XM and XT are expected to get AMT.

The new Nano GenX will be available in an all-new Sangria Red along with Meteor Silver, Pearl White, Royal Gold, Dazzle Blue, Damson Purple, and Persian Rose colours.
