Gr8 value for money/unique/family car in entry level sedan
I did a lot of research on internet and test drives before buying my etios G SP. I compared swift dezire, tata manza, I-20, Ford fiesta classic. I actually started looking for premium hatchback and ended up buying a stunning entry level sedan car as I hardly had to compromise on the budget. I have driven it for couple of months for 2500 kms and the experience has been wonderful. Look and Style : It's definitely a headturner. It has got stunning looks. I genuinely feel that its the second best looking car in the market after Honda city. Looks create an impression of a premium class car. The colour option are also better than other models. Comfort : The great pick up, smooth steering and the smmothest gear shifting gives extremely nice driving comfort for the driver. Long drives are so much comfortable that you would want to go farther and father. It's very light on highways that yiu dont feel its weight. I drove it at 150 -160 kmph and it was still ready for more. One more thing is little turning radius. I was astonished to see the space it requires for U turn. Definitely an excellent feature. And for other passangers, the gr8 legroom for all the seats makes it very comfortable too. Espeially, 3 big size people can sit comfortably on the rear seat. Flat rear floor for middle sit makes it easy sitting for the middle person in behind. Even the boot space in the truck is largest in class; better than MANZA and CITY too. Pickup: Just Fantastic! Mileage: I have not been very meticulous about calculating mileage. Company claim is 17.5. But I get around 15 avg. Which I think is good for a sedan car. Best Features: All mentioned in pros. + powerful AC + AC oulet in front glove box for keeping water bottles cool in summer. Needs to improve: It makes some cabin noise while starting engine. It can be improved. But not so noisy. could be neglected. Overall Experience has been mindblowing literally. I feel this is almost 90% HONDA CITY car you could get in 7 lakhs. Manza was a close choice. It has been loaded with features. But driving experience was clumsy. Etios is much smoother in class. Its unique and gr8 value for money. I am proud of my decision.
