Congrats on one of the best looking mini/SUV's in India. I simply love the styling of the GV. And in white (my favorite color for a car) its outstanding.

Cool, especially when getting into the car. After the puja we had to feed the baby in the car and we could do it without spending 10 minutes cooling the car with AC. That was unthinkable with the black Baleno.

The camera model is a secret, I'll have to kill you if I tell you.

First let me do some real off-roading, videos can follow. Actually I want to measure the FE first by running it on road for a while. Once I finish one full tank on normal road, then I will think of off-roading.

Wow Samurai! Congratulations on your new acquisition! A new SUV! Looks wonderful. You made an excellent choice of the car color + seat combination!

I love the fact that the GV is on Full Time 4x4!! The speedo/rpm cluster looks like a lcd panel (I mean the dials and numbers r displayed like a lcd and not printed etc)

Have a happy ownership with it. Sure adventurous of you to take it to where it belongs on the 1st day itself (off-roading).

Hey man, that white looks like sheer class. Congratulations and wishing you a great ownership experience with the GV.

Next up on your schedule should be to post pictures of the GV, doing what you bought it for : OFF-ROADING!

Congrats, Samurai, on your well-deserved buy. The GV looks huge in that white color. The kind of roads you have to travel - you really needed an offroader ages ago (much like me - hopefully soon).

Regards,

johy
