Best in class budget family car
I am an engineer and I am using beat diesel LS red color for past 3 years. It's love at first sight for me with this car. Till now I crossed 45000km. I love this vehicle. It's very good with Multi-handed Usage. It is one of the best cars for small families with solid Body and overall very attractive looks a sporty you can call rest features explained below.
Exterior: I love its looks. It has very manly looks. Mainly headlamps are awesome. Radiator grille up front along with a revamped headlight cluster and a new newel effect tail lamp that gives it a refreshing new look. It has a unique body shape and looks. It looks very trendy. Rear door handles placed on side of mirror is first in class and now everybody like KUV100 and swift 2017 model also are opting for this type of styling. Ground clearance is somewhat low.
Interior: It's seating is very comfortable. Interiors dashboard is good. The instrument cluster is very trendy and first in class. Installed seat covers for showroom itself and it now it's good. The seats are well cushioned and quite comfortable and the car reasonably spacious enough.central locking and keyless enter came from showroom itself. Boot space is somewhat less but manageable.
Engine: It comes with 1.0-litre 56.3bhp 12V XSDE Engine. It's very smooth. I went to top speed up to 120km/hr. Getting Mileage around 23kms. Services to be done frequently to get fewer problems. Expensive parts, Servicing is good, though. Let's come to the steering. It is a hydraulic power steering. Frankly speaking, I think this is the best part of the car. there is the suspension. It is slight stiffly sprung suspension, which means handling in the corners is reasonably good. This does not mean it is any way uncomfortable, it also rides well (tends to crash through the bigger potholes, though). Gear shifting is not so good while going back to 2nd gear we have to apply more pressure. The handbrake is also not so effective. Recently faced a problem of engine oil draining but after servicing it was rectified.
Chevrolet should concentrate on increasing service centers. I am from Kakinada and for servicing every time I have to go to rajamundry.
It has more pros than cons. Overall good family car. we can use it like a bike. Full marks for styling and engine. Interiors and boot space bit lacking. Ground clearance is low. If you are from a remote area, service centers will be a problem. Spares are costly.
