Good one . I have really enoyed driving the man. I do agree that engine is a bit noisy at high RPMs, but it has good cruising capability on highways at 140 kmph. It is another matter that we don't have too many of such roads in India

Same here too. These parameters of highest power, smoothest drive doesnt matter to me at all.

Its just quite a bit of fun. The moment the car goes above 80(primarily because bad torque below 2k RPM) the fun starts. I notice it a lot especially when i drive the SX4 after a week odd(long time).

Another thing is test drives definitely dont do this car any good. Most of the time we test drive the car in heavy traffic where its the worst.

Shocked that we're not getting ABS even for a car priced 7 Lac+ ex-showroom (Vxi).

I strongly feel that safety features like ABS/EBD etc. should be a standard feature, at least for all cars in this segment.

I hope Maruti guys are reading this!

Default Great work, Sid!

Great Work! Damn, this actually looks yummy.

Funny, but are there no cup holders in the new SX4?

The Fiesta'ish grill looks a lot better than that of my SX4.

Is this Eclair colour is same as Ritz's Chocolate in real?

Great work Sid, as always!!!

The Old 5 spoke alloys would look really bold and nice for this colour.

The car looks awesome. Thank God, SX4 is still there. I had heard the news that SX4 production had stopped. Being a proud owner of SX4, I felt sad. But thats good news. THe Auto gear transmission should have been there long back, but I am glad that finally it has come.
