Although AMT has been one of the most important talking points about the Tata Zest compact sedan, the system is pretty widely accepted to be in need of better responsiveness and refinement. Most importantly, the Automated Manual Transmission unit in Zest lacks what is referred to as Creep function, which is pretty much unheard of because it is a fundamental feature applied to almost every other automatic variant out there.
Creep function is nothing but the automatic transmission control unit opening the throttle just a little bit to get the car moving from halt, the moment the driver lifts his foot from the brake. This helps inch forward in dense city traffic, or not let the car roll backwards from stop at a ramp (say on a hill or up from a basement parking structure), without having to depress the throttle at all.
So, the most affordable automatic car in the country to be, Tata Nano GenX, would have a smooth AMT unit hopefully without as much gear shift lag as in the Zest.
Here is the list of features expected in the new Tata Nano GenX:
New body colour options
New fog lamps
New alloy wheel design
Redesigned front and rear bumpers with better cooling vents
Boot space accessible form the rear, with a hatch door
New steering wheel similar to Zest’s and Bolt’s
Revamped dashboard and door panels
Fresh seat upholstery
