Look and Style: Ok
Comfort: Good for 5, bad for 7 people
Pickup: Ok for city drive, but engine capacity is less when there are 7 people.
Mileage: Completed 4700Kms in 3 month, mileage measured using full tank-tank cutoff method - 16kmpl in city without AC and 14 with AC in Bangalore Silk Board road (drive most of the time during peak hours) (almost 5 times I got similar mileage consistent 14 to 14.5kmpl). Also, 18.5kmpl on high way Bangalore-Mysore-Coorg drive.
Don't go by AFE on display that always shows 1km/l more :)
Best Features: Nothing differentiated
Needs to improve: Not good as a 7 seater, remove the extra pair of seats, it would be better. Paint quality is pretty bad, low standard, even if you don't hit anyone the paint goes off, mine is just 3 month old.
Drove in night, highway was really scarced of light wondered whether I am driving a cycle with dynamo fit in. Poor light @ night. Not sure whether ABS is really working.
Lot of blind spots around, VDI model rare de-frogger missing, its pain during rain.
Last not the least, brought car from Kalyani Motors Bannerghatta road, they just made me think I should not have brought any car. Pathetic service and response, poorly managed and co-ordinated internal departments.
Just OK with car, not much excited, a good 5 seater with ample space. I should not have spent 10.5 L for a good 5 seater that's the crux. Just decide if you are looking for 5 seater go for petrol variant and thats it, diesel 5 seater? better buy i20 or Honda Jaaz.
