GenX XT (Manual Transmission) is the best: A Segment Budget Car
Looks & Style: TATA has changed the Nano to Smily Look in Front & Rear. Fog Lights are brighter. Mine is Sangria Red and with additional accessories I have changed the get up with Side Beading, Roof Rail, Chrome in HL/TL/Side Indicator. Interiors has been very nicely arranged by TATA Engineers.
Comfort: Enough legroom in front & rear seat. But it will be a great addition if TATA provided space at a 1L bottle behind the handbrake. Although this is not a big issue to keep the knick-knacks at the driver's range. If anyone keep the roof-lamp at door level, it works like a visual alarm. If any door is not shut properly, then the light will lamp ON until you close the door properly. I have short driven A Segment Cars (M-800, EON, KWID). In comparison to these cars, found NVH level is much more controlled. Music System is with BT Connectivity which is very much useful to receive emergency calls while driving. I drive the car alone so no experience about the rear seat comfort. Additional boot in GENX is very useful but will not serve the purpose of your weekend trip with family. REMOTE KEY is an�additional benefit to the XT users.
Pickup: Engine developed by TATA Team is good enough & peppy for city commute and occasionally long trip under limited speed. PLEASE REMEMBER, it is not a racing car. For the common people, who cannot afford high value for 4whl, honorable�RATAN TATA planned to launch this budgeted car with maximum features. But as per demand & R&D, a very good shape has been given to this Little Master. The choice is purely of the reader to opt this budgeted car with all general features or others.
Gearbox is very smooth like butter. I have TATA ZEST XT RT, the gear is even smooth than Zest. Regarding drum-brake, one�have�to use to with this system, keeping in mind that it is not a DISC Brake Car (those who are using GENX as a second car). Always keep safe distance & speed.
Mileage: AFE, as per MID, showing 20.5KMPL and as per tank full method, it is 22.65KMPL (w/o�ac) in�city.�
Best Features: BT Connectivity, Good Acceleration, Ground Clearance, Look, Turning Radius, Boot Space, EVERYTHING.
Needs to improve: For�the improvement, I believe, TATA R&D Worldwide team is working to provide necessary features with very competitive/minimum cost, but as a common man I will expect at least disc brake for this RWD & reverse parking sensor in the top model. �Yes, tyre noise inside the cabin can be reduced, if you keep the proper tyre pressure as per manuals.
Overall�Experience:�Nano�was my dream car, after detailed analysis (cost vs features/spec), I purchased this LITTLE MASTER and very much satisfied. Previously I owned, SANTRO, WAGON-R and now parked Zest-XT(RT) in Oct.2014 & GEN.X-XT(MT) in Nov.2015
