Based on my two months of driving Hyundai grand i10 Asta (O) version, I found it gives a feel of premium hatchback car with stunning look available today in the market in 6-7 lakhs onroad price segment.

Its a comfortable 5 seater front wheel drive with enough boot space.Its perfect for a small family living in crowded city.The city mileage is around 11-12kmph with ac. Highway driving gave the mileage of 15-16 kmph. Handling in city and turning radius is superb due to its relatively smaller size.

Exterior wise : Pure white colour with chrome finishing in door handles gives grand look.To have more safety and stylish appearance, the car is equipped with fog lights, headlights and taillights, along with wide tyres.

Interior :Interior is built well. Features well in class quality and materials. Dashboard looks graceful and everything feels within reach. Rear ac vent is plus point. AC cooling is superb. Automatic climate control feature is missing. Leg space for rear seat spacing are quite comfortable as per hatchback segment is concerned. Five people can sit in hassle-free manner. Didn't get the reverse parking camera in my car. Position of gear is nearer to dashboard unlike other cars so it takes some time to adjust. Clutches are smooth which makes handling easier. Engine is quite silent. Has multiple storage option with nice safety feature as smart key with push button start/stop.Nice bluetooth enabled music system with decent bass and steering mounted controls. It comes with power steering.

Safety wise it has dual airbags with ABS. EBD is missing. Fabric seats are comfortable.Luggage lamp is a useful feature. Reverse parking assisting sensors are handy in strict parking areas.Electric adjustable and foldable mirrors gives a premium feel. The car incorporates suitable Anti-Lock braking device to prevent skidding of vehicle. Other than this, child safety locks installed in Asta model assures proper safety of children while driving the car.

Engine performance : Its a four cylinder engine with 81BHP power at 6000 rpm and 114Nm torque. This engine gives a decent sporty power and torque combo with nice pickup.Driving uphill was comfortable. Highway driving is fun with this. The car has not disappointed me yet. Even the gears switch smoothly and the handling is easy even for beginners. Suspension is good. Didn't give much jerking on off road driving.

To conclude, it can be said like best thing about this model is its affordability in price.One can afford the feel of premium car and enjoy long drive in luxury car with your family by spending less. Its a nice option available in the market for middle class office going family guys.

After sales service of hyundai is also nice. So far can't comment on the maintenance cost of the car but people say its affordable but a bit more than Maruti avg. yearly maintenance and service charges.

My final ratings are Overall

Looks - 4.2/5

Performance - 4.1/5

Space/Comfort - 4.2/5

Fuel Economy - 3.8/5

Value For Money - 4.4/5

I highly recommend this affordable car for family looking for city driving with occasional highway driving.
