Other new features include switching to using electric Power Assisted Steering (ePAS), a larger fuel tank, a rear hatch that now opens, enhanced safety, new connectivity features and a slightly revised design.
The new model can be ordered with either the aforementioned new five-speed automated gearbox or a four-speed manual. There is no change to the power unit which means the 0.6-litre 2 cylinder petrol still produces 37bhp and 51Nm of torque as before. Officially, the GenX Nano returns 23.6km/L.
Safety wise, the new model now features a crumple zone for front impacts while side doors come with intrusion beams to protect occupants from side impacts. An anti-roll bar has been added to improve high speed stabiltiy. The car also has 'SUV-like ground clearance' of 180mm for India's rough roads.
It is now on sale in India starting from S$4,165 for the base model. As a reference, the first generation Nano cost around $3,140 in 2012.
