LUV - Life Utility Vehicle is now Hybrid
LIFE UTILITY VEHICLE ( LUV )
A value for money 7 seater is good on road with great stability at higher speed 140 kmph with an Aero Dynamic front bumper with added chrome grills.
Rear Reflectors should have been lit for Higher Visibility during the night & highway driving which was also available in its predecessors.
Ski Bars would have added extra utility but it is missing from the top model too.
SHVS - Hybrid Technology enable greater convenient & fuel saving while struck in the traffic or driving at a higher speed and even at pushing brakes.
Due to this technology , it also accelerates the vehicle with Electric power generated during overall driving & boosts the speed of the vehicle if driven at improper speed or incorrect gear.
Push START & STOP button is a great keyless comfort alomg with i Key which makes sure not to put your keys out of your pocket & stay least concerned about it.
Sometime, if the vehicle is parked in with GEAR KNOB ON and pushing the engine start button with legs free from the clutch, The car sets itself NON MOVING & NO ENGINE START for at least 3 mins.( This is something MSIL will have to work upon)
A 6 inch Infotainment is a new addition with Voice command & Bluetooth in the TOP MODEL (ZDI+) though Auto Climate Control AC is missing which was available in its predecessors !!!!
The plastics used in the INTERIOR are of average style with an armrest on the doors are covered with Fabric which could have been better.
A top model ought to have a leather seats but surprisingly it is missing & have fabric wrapped seats.
Though MSIL offers 24 km fuel efficiency , it actually ends with 18-19 kms with Highway to City riding ratio 50:50.
Antena also needs some more styling like Shark Fin.
The Alloy wheels have a new design & are worth for this model.
AC Vents & Door trims should have been chrome for extra appeal which is some how compromised with MATT FINISH.
