Pros : Beast of an engine, all 4 disc brakes, competitive pricing, roomy

Cons : ABS and airbags should have been at least an option in lower models


The exteriors of this car are nothing radical like the Honda city nor dated like the Baleno. The sparlking diamond may be a good choice for color. The interiors are quite roomy with appropriate elbow and leg room at the back. The drivers seat is comfy too, but i would have preferred an electronic multi way seat adjuster. Lets come to the main part, the engine, it is one hell of a beast, with 121 horses waiting to spring at your command!!! This engine has a lot of oomph factor and is a real thriller to drive. There is little or no noticeable turbo lag, and it kicks in at around 1500-1700 rpm. Chevy has done a good job with the transmission, by replacing the notchy gearbox of the Aveo and optra with a cable driven transmission with just the right feel. The handling too is pretty impressive at high speeds not as good as the Skoda(i took a steep turn at 120 and the car felt real solid)
