Look and Style: It is a love hate relation. While the look from the front mesmerizes, the rear look needs to be improvised. I believe a replacement of the lamps and the bumper at rear would do the difference. The style within is superb and the plastics are of a good quality unlike the other indian cars where the plastics make one puke. Comfort: Spacious, my colleagues who are 6'3 were comfortably accomodated in the rear too. I would suggest this test to all the car buyers and you would be shocked with the results. This is a important test as Indian roads are bumpy and you wouldn't like to sprain your head/neck. Pickup: Good enough for a small car. I have driven the car in Nepal's ghats too with excellent pick-up. Covered the road from Sunauli to Kathmandu in 5.5 hours sharp loaded to capacity and bulky relatives and luggage :) Mileage: In city, 12-14 kmpl. On highway Surprising at 17~19 kmpl. One word of caution, Indian petrol bunks have the ability of pouring 40 litres of petrol in a 32 litre tank. Something, I find difficult to interpret. However, numbers i have quoted are post filling tank to tank at reliable stations. Best Features: Interiors. Recently we have driven the car for continuous 1100 kms in 15 hours without a sneeze from the car. I can confidently say you could trust the car for long drives. Needs to improve: Look from the back. Overall Experience: I couldnt believe that most of the electronic linings were done by birth for the car although this was a Standard version. This car had even the linings for the stereo and speaker inbuilt beautifully and was just plug and play. The service is Global and can get car serviced anywhere in India. Top speed: 150+ I had bought this car, not on a budget but as I had required a small car to fit into my small garage space and local driving. The cars that I had compared before purchase were: Chevy Beat, Maruti Swift, Maruti Ritz, Maruti Alto, Tata Indica, Tata Nano, Skoda Fabia, Nissan Micra, Hyundai Santro. All petrol. All failed either due to stability, space, comfort, quality of plastics, engine dependability or vibrations.
