Which are those cars that he is comparing the steering of it
I recently drove an i10 grand and a jazz. The Tiago did not seem very different from both of these except for what I already mentioned about the negatives. In fact, for me nothing stood out as bad in the driving experience of the Tiago, except the slightly coarse engine.
I'm willing to overlook the coarseness because some ownership reports here have indicated that only some test drive cars have more of it and a software upgrade has reduced it.
On the other hand, the 5 good characteristics that stood out for me were the suspension, the music system, the attention to detail, the overall fit and finish and the overall package.
The car I drove had about 8k on the odo and I'm sure that almost all of them were abusive as for most test drive cars. But i didn't hear a single squeak or rattle! This was genuinely a pleasant surprise to me.
Cars like most complex machines are greater than the sum of their parts. Individual parts might be good or bad but it's how well they work together as a whole that differentiates one car from another.
The Tiago is a very good package and at its price, it makes a very strong case of itself. As good as the Tiago is, the i10 Grand is also a very good car and costs only a little more. I'm waiting to drive the facelifted i10 grand before I make up my mind and put down cash
