Hitting showrooms Tuesday, Tata Motors announced its latest variant of the Nano city car: the GenX Nano.

Starting price for the four-passenger GenX ranges between Rs1.99 lakh ($3,000 USD) for the XE trim, to Rs2.89 lakh ($4,535) for the XTA model. Power comes from a 624cc two-cylinder with multi-point injection, and is good for around 38 horses and 38 lb-ft of torque. A four-speed manual and a five-speed “Easy Shift” automated manual route the power to the back, with the latter providing enhanced acceleration and traffic-friendly features.

Other features available include: smoked headlamps; 24-liter fuel tank for longer trips; electric power steering; 110 liters of luggage room; connected-vehicle system with Bluetooth, CD and USB/AUX ports; “SUV-like ground clearance”; and structural safety enhancements.

The GenX Nano will be on sale at all 450 Tata showrooms Tuesday, with the XE, XM, XT and XTA models available immediately; the XMA trim will arrive made-to-order beginning in August. Its competitors include the Hyundai Eon and Suzuki Alto.

    Multi-point injection on a two cylinder? wow! double the injectors over throttle Body. Although I suspect some of the competition consumers are cross shopping are carburetor equipped.

      If you are talking about used cars older than 15 years, then perhaps, but carb equipped cars became outmoded ever since India 2000 norms came around in the year 2000 (duh..). All cars sold in India meet Bharat Stage 4 emissions norms, which are closely aligned to Euro 4. There are also rumours that we may go straight to BS-6, skipping BS-5 altogether provided the fuel refineries get upgraded

    This looks like a two-eyed version of the "Cyclops" car that Stan Mott drew for so many years.
