Pros: well known- Vehicle good in ride comfort, excellent road stability and handling is good. Pricing is competitive compared to the rest of all vehicles in the same lot of 8-9 Lakh vehicles. Fuel economy can't be quoted as the best in class but 18~19 kmpl is not bad for a diesel engine (70 Ps). Pickup is sluggish at lower RPM (till 1100 RPM) could be felt if you are climbing uphill, turbo kicks in after that & betters the acceleration at mid & high range. It doesn't need any intro, well-known Fiat 1.3L Multi jet diesel engine proven across the globe. Noteworthy to say the taxi fleet in other OE stable shares the same engine that's the clear indication of its proven engine reliability.
Cons: - Expect the turbo noise & squeaking noise inside the passenger compartment, steering pulling towards left is often observed in vehicles.
Power steering could be felt heavy compared to most EPS vehicles. Service support could be challenging & limited service centers availability could be challenging at times, remember the rainy days in Chennai had to wait for about 20 days for a slot.
