Drove this tiny smart hatch back now for more than 5 yrs, a smart hatch back for easy city drive.

Selected to have Petrol over diesel as the 3 cylinder was first time launch at there and had concern of balancing, also more than 80% of my drive is city commutation which monthly drive of 1000~1500.

Let me now come to more details-

Driving comfort-

The Driving position & posture is well taken care with also the option of tilt could easily flex driving comfort either in city or highway. you can have good view from the driver seat but there where cases you will feel blind spots on the sharp turns. The hydraulics power steering lead on better manure ability but sometime feels too hard in city. the front seat are adequate and have make a comfortable journey for the front row while at the back you feel a crunch of space and clumsy head space too. The boot window is quite narrow and need precision on reverse and in that the OVRMS do a fairly good job.

The boot space is not too big to cherish for but the 60:40 split seat does a nice work to accommodate that extra perhaps you must 2 person to drive then.

The Driver console in looks is quite smart giving a feel of bike, has 2 trip meter, the fuel tank display is also well calibrated.

The Only hatchback at the moment which had automatic A/C and does the job very well.

suspension are quite good but the low ground clearance and size of the tyre which kills the car on the Indian roads most of the time.

The 1.2 lt. engine churns 76.8 BHP of power, and car drive smoothly in city even with the automatic ON all the time. The drive train is good but the gear throw could have being better. The bumper is also quite low which is lift up in the next version which is good move.

The car has gr8 integrated music system ( Harman is the OEM I believe) with AUX CD & FM band. No Bluetooth this time but the later variant has one now with option of hands free.

You can only put 2 big water bottles in side pockets of front doors while next to gear console there is lack of smart storage.

No ABS for LT but the LT (O) had option.

The Dash board is classy and catchy ( would say best in segment!)

It has glare holder right above the drivers doors which was not seen in most of the hatch back!

All windows are powered with child lock feature for rear seat is there but not speed sensing auto door lock & dimming lights. The rear window glass doesn't flushes to end but left with small portion.

Never had concern on the mileage as the car has given me most of the time 15km/lt with most time the air con in automatic at 18~20 Deg C.

The 3 yr comprehensive after service coverage from Chevy was boom and didn't spend any on the maintenance for the first 3 yrs.( only consumables)

The roof rails & stylish rear door handles which piano black finish interiors are very refreshy!!I have rim version which has smartly designed small wheel covers and looks smart too.

Over all a gr8 city car and the biggest hit from Chevy after travera..

with 3 yr service agreement the car is perfect ..!!

~cheers
