Anyone has any idea of the turning radius of the Reva? considering its size, I'm sure the radius must be smaller than the Nano

from practical experience m800 and santro are the best. Even with upsized tires (185/60/13) my santro can be parked in my society's tight parking. Infact my rental appartment's tight parking, is the reason, I am not upgrading my car right now if i need a new bigger parking, i need to cough up 2k per month . Unless i buy a fiat 500, i don't think i will be upgrading soon. Too bad fiat 500s are not available in petrol turbo variants!

In my tight parking area, I tried both SX4 and Linea. I could drive SX4 easily whereas Linea was very difficult. TR figures for SX4 is 5.3 and Linea is 5.5. Even though the difference in paper is small, practically it makes lot of difference. Anybody observed this between SX4 and Linea?

Red face Reva's turning radius is 3.5 metres

I just searched through this thread and also checked the Reva website and it is 3.5 metres or 3503 mm which would make it a clear winner.

I don't have the technical details,but the Sipani Dolphin I had years ago could turn on a dime. It was a RWD.

The Spark has a turning radius of 4.6 meters which isn't too bad!

My FIAT Uno can turn in shortest of the lanes and I find it very easy to drive in congested lanes in Pune.

It has got one of the very short turning radius and turns in very short places. Indeed great car to drive.
