Pros : Style, Sport Looks, Safe and Smooth Ride, Spacious, Good Interiors, Excellent Mileage
Cons : Boot Space and Quality of Materials for Interiors
The exterior looks very sporty and compact, especially when we watch it on the roads. The design and the finish qualty is excellent and can easily match with the other cars in this segment.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
Very good interiors with a jazzy look. Initially there might be a bit of confusion with the controls and the menus, but once you get used to it, there are no concerns and everything is very smooth. the car is very spacious from inside, not only the front seats but the back seats as well. There is a lot of space for keeping utilities such as water bottles, mobile phones and eatables. The only backdrops is the boot space which is a bit less as compared to similar cars in this segment, although there is a provision to increase it by folding the rear seats in the 60:40 fashion.Secondly, the quality of material being used for the interiors is a level below most of the cars in its competition.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
Engine pickup and performance as such is excellent with a very smooth pick up and ride through the worst of roads. You don't feel the bumps that you normally might feel with other cars as the shock controls are able to absorb the bumps very well. Recommended to drive at medium speeds in the first few weeks (60 to 80km/h) so as to have the best possible mileage. I have bought the Trend + Diesel version recently and have been using it for the past 2 weeks and have already been able to achieve a mileage of 21kmpl. gear controls are easy and smooth to handle and navigate.
Ride Quality & Handling
Ride quality is very smooth with the car being able to absorb the bumps very well. You feel very safe and secure inside the car. The 6 airbags in the Titanium + variant adds to the safety factor.
An excellent choice if someone is looking for a car in the 8 to 12 lakh bracket with a sport look and great mileage. Very comfortable for the front and the back rows with a great pick up and ensures that the ride is very smooth and safe. highly recommended.
Areas of improvement
The boot space and the quality of materials used for the interiors design can be improved upon.
