Tata showed off some new sportier accessories for the Nano, Bolt and the Safari Storme at the Big Boys Toys Expo 2015 in Mumbai. These accessories have been designed to give a more sporty look to the small cars while a more rugged and mean look to the Safari Storme. There are no mechanical changes on any of the models.
The Tata GenX Nano comes with alloy wheels roof spoiler, sunroof, body graphics, remote controlled hatch release, leather seats and carpet. Nano is equipped with 624cc engine two-cylinder motor. The Nano AMT delivers marginally lesser or similar efficiency to that of the manual gearbox version which returns 25.35 kmpl to a litre. The AMT gearbox will be the same F-Tronic unit currently seen in the Zest compact sedan.
The Bolt hatch comes in a rally avatar with 5 point safety harness, rally livery and tires and multi-spoke alloy wheels. The Tata Bolt is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The Revotron 1.2-litre turbocharged Multi-point Fuel Injection (MPFi) petrol engine produces 90bhp of power and 140Nm of torque. It features three multi-drive options that include Sport, City and Eco modes. The oil-burner is a 1.3-litre Quadrajet mill that churns out 75bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. We can expect the diesel AMT to arrive at a later date, but currently only the five-speed manual gearbox is offered on both the petrol and diesel models.
The Safari Storme comes with hood scoop, hood deflector, navigation device from Garmin, roof mounted fog lamps, DRL’s, tailgate mounted cycle carrier, bumper mounted fog lamps, door visor, chrome garnish, chiller cum warmer, seat organiser, coat hanger, rubber mats and mud terrain tires. The Safari Storme sports 2.2 litre VARICOR engine borrowed from cousin Aria that gives it an extra 10 bhp at 148 bhp and 320 nm of peak torque. Prices start at 11 lakh and blow upto 17 lakh for the 4×4 variant.
