  I bought this a month back and I like the look and pick up of the vehicle.Turning radius is good. BUT DO NOT GET CHEATED ON THE MILEAGE. The main attractive feature is its main defect . Mileage is very bad and varies too much. I have traveled around 2800 km . I filled petrol from various pumps and  most of the time I got around 14-16. The minimum was 12 and maximum was 21(only once) . Another issue ,I dont know whether anyone else observed this, vehicle automatically accelerates when lift your leg from clutch. Check this on plain road. Start the vehicle, do not put your leg on accelerator . Shift the gears one by one. You will reach a speed of above fifty by the time you reach 4th or 5th, without any acceleration given.    If you are looking for good car with comfort and pick up, go for it. But if mileage is the attractive part, do not buy it.

    NVH Level : RPM meter helps in Synchronizing the gears, so that you get maximum fuel efficiency. When you shift to 1st gear you can pull your car to 1500 RPM. On 1500 RPM shift to 2nd gear. Then on every 2000 RPM change gear so you don't strain the engine. Only in climbing you can pull it to 2500 RPM. Most of the time eco lite will be on and average and engine life will be good. People talk about high NVH level and the drive is very smooth. People who say NVH is high well they are idiots I have never heard high NVH so no complaints so far.

    NVH level, Clattering & Mileage : if one drives in one gear for a long time. To reduce the NVH and clattering - RPM meter helps to reduce it by synchronizing the gears as mentioned below, you will feel the difference. It will also increase fuel efficiency. Initially you may find it hard, but once you get the hang of it, you will automatically reduce your acceleration and your car will automatically roll in one gear and eco lite will be constantly on. In this way your gear shifting will reduce. Focus a bit more on RPM and Eco Lite you will get the hang of it. When you shift to 1st gear you can pull your car to 1500 RPM. On 1500 RPM shift to 2nd gear. Then on every 2000 RPM change gear so you don't strain the engine. Only in climbing you can pull it to 2500 RPM. Most of the time eco lite will be on and average and engine life will be good and the drive will be very smooth.
