A perfect Family Car - Got delivery on 8.12.2011
Look and Style Looks Good, a fresh & new model. Other models have been around for sometime, as they were much before. Liva is new arrival in hatchback segment. Comfort Inside the cabin, space is plentiful. We were looking for a family car, where if required all members can travel together. In space, only Vista can match Liva. Swift, Micra etc are good for people looking for individual car or additional car. But for Middle Class people like us, who can afford only one car, we have to see if space is enough for family to go together. Flat rear floor is a big boon in liva. Pickup : Fine Mileage : This car is very fuel efficient and in todays time it makes a great sense. First, Diesel as a fuel and top it up with high fuel efficency - this translates less load on your finances. The running cost of this car is definitely economical, which counts in long run after intial euphoria of a new car gets over after a few days. Best Features Space, Mileage, After Sales Support, Resale Value Needs to improve Introduce a detailed Multi-Information Display. Currently, Door open warning is available. temp, clock, avg mileage etc can be intoruced under M.I.Display. Overall Experience Good and very satisfactory. Liva has to offer all that which are essential and practical for driving (ABS, Central locking, tilt steering to mention a few), instead of loading it with accessroies or gadgets that are seldom used. I have decided to buy Liva after considering almost all other hatchbacks in its category. Vista was ruled out due to quality issues associated with TATA, same holds good for Punto. Fabia and Polo are over-priced, their after sales service/support does not have a good reuptation. Swift and Micra were short of space for my family. In Swift, rear seats are actually meant only for kids, it is a car for 2 adults and 2 kids only. Small rear windows in swift, giving claustrophobic feeling. Furhter, Figo, Punto, Polo, Fabia will not only expensive to maintain but will also not fetch good resale value. i-20 diesel, is also not worth its price, given space constraints. To summarise, Liva is the only model at its price with ABS except Vista. ABS models of i-20, Polo, Fabia, Micra, Swift are far expensive.
