Just what India was waiting for!!!
Was awaiting for this launch. Went for a test drive infact twice on the same day. Amazing Car. Lots of room inside, good features, tried the Blu & Me, is very useful. Car is good on safety too. The top line version is loaded and will put its competitors to shame. Airbags, ABS, Trip computer, Service Reminder etc etc all other features found on cars one and half times the price. Finally we have a car with all the safety features but not at an astronomical price. Infact airbags and ABS should be mandatory in India in all cars like most other countries and will definitely save more lives. Good tyre size. Drives very well, amazing suspension, should have had the earlier Siena horn though. Pick up is a little less but for everything else this car offers it is a bargain. Good boot space though high loading bay. Alloys are good. Music system is adequate has a USB port and MP3 player & 6 speakers. Gear shift slick, though u need to floor the accelerator initially. In 3rd gear it is effortless, good for the city. Drove the Diesel variant and is sure a jewel of an engine though can be a little noisy with life of 250000 km with a service interval of 15000 km! Another useful feature is the steering mounted controls for the audio and bluetooth mobile. Most buttons are one touch. The trip computer has even a programmable speed limit warning. There are also double folding seats at the rear, opening up a huge space. Another useful feature in our country is a rollable flexible curtain to avoid the sun in the rear glass. The boot hinges open away from the loading area. I compared the stopping distance from 100 kmph to a dead stop is even better than the new Honda City, The brakes are that good. I researched the Torque, it is even better than the New Honda City, Ford Fiesta and even the Innova. That is the uniqueness of this engine so when required you will have the grunt and a good pull. The inner fascia and dials lights up a deep amber red and it is awesome to look at, has an upmarket feel. All around a good family car at an amazing price. Planning to buy one soon.....
