Grand i10 the Grandest hatchback
Sometimes big comes in small packets. Yes, Hyundai motors have made it big in this small little yet marvellous city hatch. Living in big cities is a quite a boon as bumper to bumper traffic is what we suffer from, so my desire was a car with technology, features, low maintenance and off corse a car that's fun to drive and easy to steer in the city. Yes, I found it and it's my Grandi10 which fits perfect to my needs.
Exteriors- the exteriors are appealing and make an appreciable statement with its curvy and fluidic design. The front lights look masculine with a neat body and the rear looks sweet and friendly. The silver alloys are also notable which match quite well with the chrome door handles which simply leaves all its competition way behind it.
Interiors- the interiors of the car look good and are very practical the two tone dash design is pleasant to look, the plastics are of good quality, with good spaces to store your cell phones, wallet, and bottles. The car also has rear AC vents which make the rear passengers happy in the blazing sun.
Features and Technology- The car has features which give you a premium feel of a car segment way above. The cooled glove box is a blessing in hot weathers to keep water and other drinks cool. The keyless entry system with the press of a button and the engine start-stop button is simply smart. ORVMs can be folded and adjusted simply with buttons inside. The Bluetooth function helps in playing the playlist from the phone and rejecting and receiving calls. The AC is very effective, even when the car is parked in the direct sun and does not take fractions of minutes to chill the cabin.
Performance and Drive- With a small 1.2 litre petrol motor the car gives good fuel economy of 15.46kmpl which is quite impressive in normal road conditions, on a long trips which included driving on city,highway and climbing hills the car returned a fuel efficiency of 14kmpl which is very unbelievable as cars become very thirsty on climbing hills but at the same time it does not compromise with its Performance. It is easy to drive as the steering is very light and yet responsive. The car is good to drive on highways and can touch 155km/hr easily on straight stretches. The motor seems to be effortless no matter what speed you drive in, as there is negligible engine noise which you may sometimes doubt for an electric motor. It is a good performer in hills too as it is effortless in climbing and overtakes.The seat are well cushioned they just dont let you feel the pot holes and other bumps.
Service- The car is low to maintain and comes from a brand which we have trusted for years.The service experience always has been very smooth as the the staff is very pleasant.
My final verdict is that it is the best car one may ever need for daily life and the Gandi10 being my first car I just want to keep this forever with me and would recommend it to every one looking for a practical car.
