The one -ve thing about this car is the accelerator pedal which isnt suspended from above. I found it a little wierd to use. Other than that, really enjoyed TDing it.

I think a fully loaded civic will have a cubersome CG, which is a major cause for worry.

@mobike008 : Can you define the very low ground clearance ?

It is about 170 mm, more than my Indica which is at 166 mm !!

But if you meant that you will end up scraping some oddly positioned small hillocks that pose as speed breakers in Indian cities , yes, but not if you are careful.
