Let me begin with all the things that I hate about this car.

1. Very looooong, which is difficult for U-turns and parking.

2. Slow speed ride quality is average, due to the stiff set up

3. Below average plastics, creates rattling as the car ages

4. Turbo lag, which might annoy during traffic conditions, where low end power helps!

5. Poor NVH in-spite of brilliant sound deadening materials

6. The Engine 1.3 MJD has lived it's life already, the competitors provide the next generation engines which are drastically refined and smooth compared to this.

7. Ergonomics- Seriously I hate to share my ride with any one, only for this reason. It takes at least 30 minutes to sort the optimal seating position.

8. Space - As lengthy it is, the less space it offers. The interior space is nothing phenomenal to write about. Just average.

9. Stock ICE is very poor, and switching to an aftermarket HU is a tiresome job.

10. Electricals: There will be frequent niggles in this department

Coming to the Pro's

1. The Car is just Brilliant to drive on a proper tarmac

2. The Stability at high speeds are just mind blowing, sure you can keep up with Cars of higher segments

3. Mid end and top end is good, it revs neatly to the redline.

4. Steering response: The only car which communicates and listens to you, I mean seriously. Very engaging drive as a result.

5. Ride quality at high speed is excellent

6. High ground clearance helps to tackle the our road conditions with ease

7. Enormous Boot space, you can fit 3 people in there JK :P

8. Handling is the best, sharp cuts, lane changes and cornering are fun!

9. Build quality: Matches to Cars which are segment above

10. Fiat's Service: They take the utmost care of your car, reason is they are not crowded as Maruti's or Hyundai's. There are only minimal number of Intakes for service per day, hence you can get all the issues sorted out. Spares has never been an issue till now. All the spares are readily available in my city.

Note: This is a Car for people who listen to their Heart. Many criticized me for my choice, but not one day or moment I regretted my decision.

If you wanna commute, look else where. If you wanna "Drive", you made the right choice.
