Perfect City Car
Purchased As : New
Familiarity : Have driven for a few hundred kilometres
Fuel Economy : 21 kpl
Good : Style, Fuel Economy, Acceleration, Lots of space for a hatchback
Bad : Top Speed, No safety feature in Magna variant except seat belts
Front: Massive upgrade on styling on the old i10, car looks small and narrow from front but is actually lengthier on side and spacious inside. Looks sharp from front. Headlamps and fog lamps look very pleasing.
Rear: Looks great with 3 brake lamps, 2 reverse lights (even i20 has only one on left side and looks very odd) and 2 big reflectors on bumper. Illumination at the back is excellent. Huge Hyundai logo on back looks impressive too. Boot opening has a button not a lever. Very easy and convenient to open.
Sides: Very nice and simple design. Big windows on front and back doors which go down fully. Thick black molding on doors to avoid scratches (I added these, Magna variant doesn't come with these).
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
When I got into the car for the first time, my immediate impression was that there are no visible signs of any cost cutting. Interiors look very pleasing to eye wth the dual tone colors. All 4 windows are automatic. Auto adjusment of OVRMs through a joystick control is superb feature. The amount of space in this car is amazing. I don't know how Hyundai has managed to do this. Storage space in all 4 doors. Rear AC is a great feature which no other car has in this segment. Govt. has banned tint films so this AC vent at back will be a very useful feature. Space for keeping God idols on dash. There are many other tiny features, I can't write all, which will make you go Wow!
More specious than other cars of similar category. Features are unbelievable. no one can offer you such features in same cost. Comfort very high. Earlier I had I10 petrol. Now i havent feel any change in driving comfort. Back seats also have very high level of comfort. That rear AC blower in mind blowing fetarure.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox, Ride Quality & Handling
Being a diesel engine, there are some vibrations and some noise but it's not a bother at all. Clutch pedal is smooth like a petrol car, not entirely jerk free though. Gear shift is slick. Great acceleration and it will help you through city traffic. Highway driving is satisfactory but not comparable to a car like Swift Diesel. Cruises well between 90-120. Suspensions are soft. Comfortable drive. The Electronic Power Steering (EPS) is so buttery, you can turn with your fingers. Great drivability and handling.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Very less noise. proper isolation provided through Window shields, Very smooth. Fuel economy has not calculated yet. But it Seems about 20 kmpl with AC & 24 kmpl w/o Ac.
Ride Quality & Handling Driving qualityis like Petrol vehicle. Very very smooth & Comfortable for City & Highway driving.
Perfect diesel car for city and odd highway long drives.
I have driven a little above 1500 kms over 2 months.
