Default Query for Palio Sports owners!

Guys, bought Palio Sport 1.2 4 months back...being my first car wasn't very particular abt the accessories & inspection.

I realised recently that the fifth wheel is normal (not alloy like the other four). Palio owners lemme know if its the standard or the dealer duped me.

Congrats on your car. I also own a Palio 1.2 ELX NV Purple color and am from Bangalore.

Yes. It is the standard. When I was checking with Sundaram about NV Sport, they told me that you will get 4 alloys and a steel. Looks like this is a standard practice. The dealer hasn't duped you.

What...you paid 10k for formula red in Palio D? I think the dealer duped you. I did not pay any premium for my similar car.

Korean often try to push up their valueformoney aspect by providing more goodies as compared to their counterparts otherwise its pretty much an industry standard to keep the spare tire as a spare tire itself and not a replacement tire.
