An automatic SUV splendid in every way!
Look and Style: The car looks very stylish from every angle. The build quality is excellent with no uneven panel gaps or flimsy body parts. Although I wish it had LED DRLs instead of LED parking lights because the ones that already come with it are not visible in daylight.
Comfort: The car offers a very comfortable and composed ride over all kinds of roads. There is no bumpy feeling when going over broken roads. The seats are very comfortable for the passengers. Driver seat is not as comfortable due to lack of lumbar support and you will surely miss it during long drives. I think it is a very capable highway cruiser from my experience.
Pickup: The pickup is outstanding for an automatic diesel SUV. I have read somewhere that this is the fastest compact SUV in this price range. Also the 6 speed AT is very smooth and fast shifting. Even though I own the auto variant, I have test driven the SX-O manual variant twice and I have found that the engine noise of auto variant compared to the manual is much more audible in the first 3 gears. Also, the Braking is average compared to the excellent braking of the manual variant. It feels annoying at times.
Mileage: I have driven 3500 km so far and I'm getting 12 kmpl in the city and 16 kmpl on the highways, not bad.
Best Features: The Touchscreen and Navigation are very smooth with no lags, the audio quality is excellent, Automatic climate control is very effective and chilling, good stability at high speeds, good passenger and boot space, Smart key system is very accurate and the Ground clearance is a big plus.
Needs to improve: The Braking system in AT variant, Engine noise in AT variant and the most important driver seat lumbar support is missing.
Overall Experience: Overall it is a very nice SUV.
