Pros : amazingly powered and good fuel economy
Cons : body roll
Exterior I liked the exteriors a lot especially the rear looks (subjective to individuals). The tail light cluster looks very good and class apart in night driving. Day times also I feel it is one of the best clusters. Front cluster too is nicely placed. GENUS has rear wiper which improves the look. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Front seats are the best, lot of head room and wind screen gives lot of space for the driver and co-driver. I feel this gives a feel like a MUV/SUV in front seats. Rear seats too has good head room but the knee space is little less if compared to the kind of space we have for head room. Three moderately built people can easily sit. AC is chilling. I could not go beyond the three pointers in Bangalore weather. I didn't want more cooling :) I never felt that the adjustable steering will be of much use but I realized in the first 600 kms itself that it is a feature I am going to use very frequently in long drives. RPM meter is best placed though it is making the cluster very simple. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Engine is simply awesome, just rev it and you will feel the power. I know that it is more of a family car and not for the enthusiasts but till we are driving in straight line and do not go for cornering or control the speed at curves it will not let you down. But surely at corners there is problem of body roll. Gear box has some problem while changing 2 to 3 but that is may be because it’s new and I am not used to it. Positioning is surely very good, hands fall naturally to the gear knob. Ride Quality & Handling It’s smooth in town and amazing on highways. Though not very sure about the rear seat comfort on long drive as we didn’t have any one to judge that. Final Words It’s amazingly powered, beautiful, and spacious and economically best hatch. No doubt about it. Areas of improvementI don’t know if it is possible to improve the stability while cornering with the tallboy design and having soft suspension but that needs a definite improvement. Rear seats could have bottle holders in door or near the hand breaks. Music system should have Bluetooth and USB, It is need of the hour. You can’t offer just a CD player and AUX in today’s time.
