Meri Pyaari Pyaari Gaadi Ko kisi ki nazar na lage
The reason I am giving 4 stars is because I don't want any evil eye casting a spell on my pyaari pyaari gaadi. This is a small 814 cc engine with 13-inch trims, 55bhp engine, and about 7200 NM torque, with airbags, tilt-adjustable steering wheel and power windows. The engine is sohc and geared to give fuel efficiency. compact and easy to drive. the power steering has no memory but does not take away the feedback from the road like the other new cars do.turning radius is 4.6 meters and it runs smooth in the city traffic. the gear is still a bit rubbery right now but it has been improving since the first day. the interiors are plush. It gives the feel of a vehicle in the luxury segment. no cheap plastics here. however, the small engine takes a little getting used to. once you get the hang of it, you will be surprised at how smoothly you maneuver into and out of the tight parking spaces and heavy traffic. The car is stylishly built and the best color on road is the passion red. the gear lever has a curve which you will notice when you install the gear lock. First, drive review: it is peppy with enough grunt in the low rpms. Ladies will like it and so will the children. the drive in the economy range is smooth and really much to write home about. You will enjoy the plush feel you get at this price and also the squinting looks from guys driving bigger cars. It does make them notice the curves and the aggressive lines. the stubby tallish stance is a little awkward but the flared wheel arches make up for the style quotient. kwid is the better looker here, but it runs on three lug nuts and has a plastic oil sump. this car runs on 4 lug nuts on the wheels. it is heavier than the other wannabes ie kwid, redigo and the alto. the company gave me MRF tyres which are a little bit of a letdown because the santro came on bridgestones. take heart, however, the original Bosch power windows still do the duty on this car. on the flats it is fine till about 80 and then suddenly you feel the urge for more power. my first 0-100 was about 29 seconds with some obstacles but the handling was alright. I had used the alto earlier and it was too light at those speeds of above 100. this car sits squat and handles well upto 115. thereafter it gives the same feel as the kwid or the alto. Those two breaths a little better but handling wise this car is behind the alto but miles ahead of the kwid/redigo. The interior is where this car scores and scores heavily. is it a car for the male of the species? well, not too many males would moon over the capabilities of this engine. it is a tough little cookie which is an all out city engine. In the city, it will put even a Toyota Altis to shame with its maneuverability and power. with the ladies, this is a winner. it has the looks, it has the style, it has the interiors, it is plush, it is fun to drive and it is more fun to park. rear seat folds up and you get tons of space. in terms of dimensions it is just a couple of inches narrower but is that much taller than its main rival -- the kwid.alto has just taken a beating with this offering. however, in this engine displacement, the alto engine is a formidable performer. but as an overall package- looks, power, performance this is the go to car
