Something is better than nothing at this price
Pros : Exterior look attractive, mileage good, less price
Cons : Many important standard features not provided
I enquired this car at Ooty and it was not available at there. Finally I approached to one of my friend who purchased this car four months ago from Delhi showroom. I had good discussion about this car with him and also went on friendly test drive for small distance on a highway. My experience as per test drive of this car is as under. My experience are not totally confirmed, rather you may have your own experience while driving in different areas.
Exterior look: - good exterior look, tyre, front grill, way for enter is good. Spare tyre is attached at rear, color of car & side skiers are having good combination, opening of door do not give good feel. It appears that light quality of material is used in body.
Interior fitting/ Features: - Out of 14 standard features only following features are available
1. Power steering
2. Power window front
3. Cup holder front
4. Remote fuel lid opener
5. Central locking
Thus interior standard features like, steering, wheel, seats & dash board are not of good quality and gives feel of lower quality material used. Glove box is also not up to mark. Boot space in door opening is not good.
This is an average price diesel driven can having power engine of 1489cc and on road price at Delhi is Rs. 5, 61,234/- . Its average in city is 12 kmpl and 16 kmpl on highway. Riding and handling is of average quality. Body roll beyond speed of 90 kmph is not stable.
Finally this car is of average feel with limited feature & economical in fuel & price. We may have to ensure good service from dealer by purchase of this car to avoid inconvenience after purchase.
In present days price hike in petrol & diesel is also considerable. Government is also having plans to remove subsidy on petroleum products. Thus price gap in diesel & petrol will be huge & diesel driven vehicles will only be economical in present environment. Hence it would be appropriate to purchase diesel driven car like premier Rio ex.
