As for the initial acceleration, ya its slow of the blocks but today i raced a NHC ZX, Hyundai Verna Petrol & guess what i won, though they had good initial pick up.

Hey Varun,

Congrats for your Chevy !! Nice review .....

this is another car that was on the competition list while i was deciiding on the ford fusion. That time it lost out just beacause if its gears and power delivery(i drove the 1.6 and thought it lacked the attributes of the other 1.6 in delivering power. Not sure about the 1.4)

And 10 km n city with full ac before first service clearly shows that you will get around 15-16 on highways. Now thats not a bad mileage man. Cool. Enjoy you car.

Nice review, Kamy. I tend to agree with most of what you said. The car comes pre-loaded and an average customer need not pay extra dough for those "extra" fittings (which otherwise are essential to make the driving experience complete). I had my car (1.4 base) driven by a few of my friends who own other sedans and they were all floored by the silky smooth drive . In fact, the car drives like a dream (of course I've not revved it beyond 3k). Potential buyers get put off by what is written about this car. The gear shift (after 200 km) is as good as it can be; I was apprehensive about it when I took the test drive. But later the manager at the dealership told me it was an old vehicle (that is before the modification). The pick up is good, may not be phenomenal, but how many among us need that kind of ripping acceleration from a family car. The size of the car can be quite intimidating for those who are graduating from small sedans. From close quarters the car looks very muscular. I think it is also solidly built. Lift the hood and you know the car is built to last. I could feel the difference between Aveo hood and the onion skin like hood of Esteem, which I owned earlier (well, Esteem has its own plus points, but that is a different issue). In short, I'd recommend this car to anyone who wishes to buy a good family car and has a little above 6 lakhs budget. You will not be disappointed. You get the feel that your money was well-spent. The adoring glances of neighbours is only a bonus point.
