Pros : Automatic AC with rear aircon vents, 1 GB internal storage audio unit with BT

Cons : Mediocre diesel, no CVT option in petrol

Look and Style: The car is well carried forward from the Grand i10, the notchback bootlid looks decent with unique chrome inserted wrap around taillamps. The front end of the vehicle is carbon copy of the hatchback. Comfort: Rear dual AC vents adding the premium factor to this compact sedan plus the automatic climate control and 1 gigabite internal storage audio system which also boosts Bluetooth phone connectivity. all these features differentiate the sedan from its competitors plus the killer price tag. Pickup: The 1.1 U2 diesel is a decent performer, nice low end torque plus nice mid range punch. The petrol Kappa 2 VTVT is also a decent performer with segment first variable valve timing technology.  Mileage: With the company claiming 24kmpl ARAI certified for the diesel its a real heck of a deal! at 5.56 lakh ex- shwroom.   Best Features: Definitely the rear aircon blower no doubt! The rear aircon is also the segment first and is realy a plus point in hot and humid India!  Needs to improve: Koreans really need to improve the slightly absurd rear styling plus the three cylinder motor lacks the top end grunt and sometime it feels under powered although, the engine performed in city and light highway cruising. CVT is lacking in the petrol variants instead the company provided ancient 4 speed automatic in the time when every manufacturer is running for either CVT or Automatic Manaul Transmission.   Overall Experience: At a killer starting price of 4.66 lakhs for the petrol and diesel for 5.56 lakh plus you can take home petrol automatic for 6.29 (All Ex-Showroom Delhi). The Korean's really slayed the Japanese ( Honda and Suzuki) this time in the compact sedan war. The car will definitely be a run away success like it happed with the hatch sibling :)
