Hyundai i10 1.2
A beautiful car, which does not gets old, anytime. It has all the comfort of a bigger car, while drives, like a powerful bike. Driving it on highways, gives an impression of video games. Never fails in pickup, and power, with almost NIL cost of maintenance. Engine, never gives a problem, if regularly serviced. Service cost is also very less.
The engine has virtually no noise, and cutting through city traffic is like using a red hot knife, on a chunk of butter. The sitting posture is also high, so that, driving long distances is not an issue at all. The view is excellent, minus a slight block, through the `A` pillar. Lack of ABS, EBD, and BA, can be felt sometimes, though being a small car, that may add to risk, rather than safety. The lamps of the headlight also needs to be changed from 55V to 90V, since the car is fast, and has ordinary headlights. The back seats also, offer decent space, for occupants who are less than 6 ft. The backseats are better for children and ladies(since ladies are normally shorter, in posture).
Only drawback is the lack of strength, in the body, which is quite intimading.
A superior built quality, would have been, made the car a wholesome offer, but then again, there is a price point, which comes, with solid steel.
Recently, I went to Delhi, from Lucknow, and it was to my surprise, that my car, never complained, on any rough patches, while it was very comfortably cruising at expressway, at 120 to 130 kmph. There was not a point where I felt, I was loosing grip. I drove it, for six hours at a stretch, to Agra, from Lucknow, and the car never seem tiring. After a short break of 20 minutes, Where tyre pressures and all were checked, I climbed on the expressway, to find it amazing.
Truly a good car minus the built quality. It is completely a fun car to drive, and gives a family feel.
