Going by their website, I feel there are some cutting on the features Viz. the atomtic climatic control. Anyother features cut down compared to the petrol version?

HOLY COW? 5500 RPM redline...? Was that a typo?

If for real, then...this Chevy would quite blur the necessity of a modern petrol powerplant now, wouldn't it..

The Torquey diesel drive out does petrol cars any day with torque so early and substantial this is going to be a fun car to drive

sorry for that, meant 4500.

the tachometer also shows redline around 4500.

im sure it would go beyond that but the test drive car had only 80 kms on it and did not want to be any harsher.

mods pls make the change if possible.

Not always applicable, The east was the first to run out of stock of the stock clearance OHC VTEC's and even the Palio Adventure (I dont mean adventure sport).

Got my car yesterday. Thanks to cooldude1988765.

Initial impression : Load of torque what is got is really not very useful. It refuses to move below 1600 rpm and you need to kick the gear down. I find my Palio diesel more convinient. I guess it will take some time to get use to it. Very impressed with ride and overall quality.
