Dont tell me its that big, it could be bigger than what we assume, but definitely not that enormous.

Thanks v1p3r, probably thats why i like it better than the other 'latest' cars.

Well, that rear size accentuated by that huge boot catches you off-guard if you're behind it closely for the 1st time.

Exactly.
The only time I "had trouble" was the first time I drove an Opel Astra. Got used to the stem switches within 5 minutes of driving. It really didn't matter after that. Anyway, most European cars have it that way.

Saw another Silver one near JP Nagar 6th Phase. Looks like JP Nagar is going to be full of Logans. Now this officially takes my count of Logans spotted, to more than the SX4 spotted. Luckily for me I've always spotted different colours of both the cars so its not a case of seeing the same one twice.
The count now is Logan - 4 to SX4 - 3

John, thats bound to happen the first time. Soon you get accustomed to it.

When i went for a test drive on the Swift-D, i wanted to take a right turn, and the wipers went screeching. The sales guy who came along immediately asked, "Sir, Ford??". Pat came the reply, "YES".

But the esteem wiper control is a knob at the end of the stem which needs to be turned, you cannot switch on the wiper by pushing the stem like we do for the turn signals. Or it has to be pulled up for wash/wipe. I guess it has changed in the swift.

Looks like its Logans galore here in Bangalore. Since my last count which was 6, i assume, i have spotted another 5 more, with them being red, black, and gold. It cant be called a flop any longer, i feel.

Now, i have decided to stop counting. Doesnt make sense to me anymore.

For all those friends who think that there is nothing right or wrong about having wiper controls on the right...it would be interesting to read the Hyndai Tucson website...

Thy say - India is RHD country so the Tucson sold in india has RHD controls.

Way to go Hyundai.

An example to show wiper controls on the right doesnt benefit sales.
