As small as a Maruti 800, but as powerful as a Evo VI. Now isnt that a HOT HATCH. 3 Litre V6 produces around 252 bhp that can propel you to 100 kmph in just 6 seconds. And if u r patient enough to wait for some more time, it cud take you to a top speed of 250 kmph. Yours for 27,000.

Though a very powerful and quick car, it's handling gets worse as you reach it's limits.

As seen in the top gear video, the car just refuses to get into corners. Then there's the turning radius that makes a range rover feel like a small car.

It's a good car for stop and go, but isn't capable of handling what ever comes in between.
