Tata GenX Nano AMT (EasyShift) Review
We got our hands on Tata Motors’ latest car – GenX Nano AMT (EasyShift). The test drive was conducted on Kanakapura Road which is at the outskirts of Bangalore. Before we reveal more details on our experience with the car let us have a look at the engine and transmission specifications of GenX Nano
The car which we got is the top-end variant of GenX Nano which the company calls as XTA which is equipped with Automated Manual Transmission mated with 5-speed gearbox.
These are the points which we noted during our test drive:
- At the first we felt transition between gear shift is bit rough
- Easy to shift from manual to automatic mode
- Best suited for city rides
- One handed drive is comfortable
- Best suited for first time car drivers
- Turning radius of the car is small which is welcoming
- Legroom in the front as well as at the back is good
- Air conditioning is good even for back seaters
- Cabin lamp + different type of storage system in the front
- Best suited for travel individuals and working professionals
- (Cons) Pre calculated ascending and descending of gears
- It took 12 to 15 seconds to reach a maximum speed of 60 kmph
- Pickup of the car is good
- Engine produces whirring sound during reversing
- Good suspension + Ground clearance is fairly ok
- No skidding effect observed even in rainy condition
- Road grip is good.
- Best suited for long drives (distance of around 100 to 150kms) It is a good travel car as it small in size.
- Good to drive in village like road conditions
- It is a small car expect comparatively small luggage area
- Small business owners cannot use this for transport purpose
- (Cons) Mileage of the car is relatively less when driven on auto mode
- Sports mode and Creep mode works as advertised.
Overall, we liked the car. If you are a scooter or motorcycle owner planning to own your very first car, this can be a GO-TO car – It is within your budget, comes with automatic gearbox, it is small and can crawl through any streets in India and most importantly a Tata brand.
If you are wondering if this review is too small for you to make a decision to buy then check out all key features of Nano GenX Easyshift which we posted earlier and give a second thought!
