First Impression: I waited 2 months for the launch if it. My first impression after seeing the car and after completion of several rides - I can say this is All-rounder in performance and Looks.

Exterior: Best in market for this price. No doubts that from outside it is a real stunner in looks. Its aggressive stance is a treat to eyes and also the curved LED on the headlamps attracts attention.

The recent changes on the front bonnet with re positioned fog lamps adds to its looks. The arches on the bonnet also needs to be mentioned.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) The top end version W10 is a real pleasure to drive. The user will have awe-inspiring experience. At the start it is bit surprising to see the big waterfall dashboard but soon you would feel that all buttons are falling at the convenient distance and are easy to operate.

The Sunroof is a welcome addition along with the 6 way automatic seats. I personally liked the reach of driver seat movement.

Many manual users have mentioned about the stiff clutch lever, however the AT version have completely taken away that issue and made this car a pleasure to drive. Whether you are in the crowded roads or on a multi-lane highway you would be greeted by this car’s liveliness and powerful torque. Such a nice pickup and torque is adequately mated by 4 wheel disk brakes which will keep you in control. It has ability to bring the vehicle to a halt at any speed. Nowhere would you feel any shakiness while braking, the car can stop at a straight line.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox The 2.2 L engine is able to accelerate at any speed. The engine noise is more as against the manual transmission, that’s due to the gear change setting of AT. But it would never be intrusive. Moreover, it is audible only at lower gears, the engine sound becomes fainted on higher gears. Music system can compensate this.

Overall: As I said it is best in looks and performance for this price.
