I ditto that. Plus you don't have to get out or move your frame for most of the things. Press a button the fuel flap opens, the side RVMs get adjusted etc.

On My Ford Ikon,

I am just bowled by the handling and the responsiveness of the car.

Just perfect, though a bit underpowered the response and control is just impeccable.

Cheers!!!

On my Zen LX, I like the gear shift and pickup. The engine is very smooth and peppy.

Santro

the ability to maneuver a "small car" during bumper-to-bumper traffic and jams coz of its great gear shift, gear ratios, and turning radius, and switch to a fun mode playing with its straight-line pickup, excellent front and rear view and great braking!

i love everything.

I like the way my Swift handles. Any tight semi-circle or full circle road ahead put smile on my face and I start pushing accelerator. I like to take circles/corner at high speeds.

Hey fellas, reviving an old thread, but couldn't help posting my 2 cents!

M800: Love the way I could zip around in traffic. Feels like riding a bicycle.

Indica V2:
Love the feel of the diesel engine.
Love overtaking one car after another once the beasty picks up momentum on highways.
Love the feel of a bigger steering.
Love the spaciousness and the feel of driving a big car.
Love the low end torque making city driving easier.
Love the robust suspension making the drive more comfortable.


Esteem MPFI:
Love the quick and smooth engine response on pushing the pedal to the metal.
Love getting a consistent mileage of 13.5-14.5 Km/l even after hard revving (sometimes) and aggressive driving (most of the times).
Love the degree of control available even on speeds > 100 Km/hr (except the braking distance)
Love cornering at high speeds.
Love the sound (oh that growl!) of the engine when moving from a stop.
