Excellent Entry level sedan
I purchased Dzire VXi in Bangalore by last year. I had an old Santro earlier, so wanted to go for the entry level sedan for which I preferred Dzire. After the purchase in 1 year, I have covered 15000 kms which include 15% city and 85% highway. Exterior has no major changes (in VXI and VDI) when compared to the old Dzire other than retractable OVRM, other changes are just for namesake. I personally feel the gauge thickness of the sheet are less (when compared to old Santro) to reduce weight and improve mileage. The salesman himself says while closing the front bonnet just drop and do not apply force to close which will damage the bonnet. The fog lamp assembly plastic are fixed in the bumper so it is not so rigid which we cannot expect also. Interior is beach color which is very difficult to maintain black would have been a better choice. The boot space also not bad it will easily accommodate a family stuff of 3 to 4 days family trips. Sear thickness is more if it is moderate will looks like more spacious. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy, and Gearbox Sometimes you need to check the RPM meter to check engine is ON or OFF. Engine performance is awesome in highways. I reached car with 160 KMPH and maintained for 2 to 3 mins for checking the vibration. You won't believe the vibration is very less. I constantly maintain 120 in highways. The co-passenger will not feel it is in 120 unless they check for RPM meter. The Gear shifting is very smooth. The mileage @ highway is very decent in highway but do not compare with the city like Bangalore. Ride Quality & Handling Ride quality is awesome. Final Words This is the best car in this segment which has good comfort, moderate pickup as 1.2 l engine, good Mileage. Areas of improvement 1. A/C vent should have connected to glove box to place cool drinks. 2. The rear vent should have been for facelift Dzire there as Hyundai provides for I10 grand itself 3. ABS should have been for mid and high-end versions it has provided for VDi. 4. Steering wheel could have been even sporty. 5. Reverse parking sensor is missing.
