Pros : Looks and style

Cons : Fuel economy is terrible


Look and Style: The car looks neat and better than Honda Amaza and Suzuki Dzire. The dashboard is nicely styled and everything is ints place - except may be the switches for the windows whcih are place near the gear lever. Since I had driven Japanese cars for many years it has taken me some time to get used to the position of the switches - more often than not my hand goes to my dood as the Japanese cars have the glass / window switch on the doors. Comfort : I found the car to be confortable. Considering I am ore than 6 feet tall there is enough leg room for me when I drive and also for the passenger behind me. Pickup: I picked up my new car of 21 Dec 2013. I have driven 440 km so far. The pick up is bad on 3rd gear, I must go down to 2nd gear, sometimes even to 1st when the car is moving very slowly in traffic jams. Mileage: I have driven 440 kms so far and find the mileage to be a HORRIBLE 10-11 kms/liter. So whatever reviews you read on car sites and magazines are false. I challenge those reviewers t get me even 16km/liter. I will have this matter chekced when I go for the first 1000km check up. Best Features: Nothing to write about other than the affordable price. Needs to improve: Get rid of the terrible FIXED roof antenna and either install a retractable antenna at the back. I bought a car cover which even has a pocket for the roof antenna - looks terrible. I should have checked whether the antenna is rectractable or not before buying the car. Overall Experience: UNHAPPY.
