I got it already its Accent GLE
Dont know about stability since i havent taken it above 125 as of now and GC is an issue

Accent is a good car; I believe you should have been able spare some of your budget too. It is good & fun to drive vehicle; boot is also decent – I have driven my brother-in-law’s Accent a lot within city, but not on highway. Take care of the stability at high speeds. Once on my highway drive, an Accent tried to get past my IKON at 120+kmph and it started wobbling – the driver took a hasty retreat.

Yes stability is a big concern with all Hyundai's so first change is gonna be tyres to 15 inchers or 14 at least

Nice pic. For getting in some stability, give her some good shoes with alloys. GC you will not be able to do much as you have to bear with it. Colour looks good.

@Akshay- The car looks wonderful and colour is also good. Overall looks like a very good buy. Change tyres and you can start clocking the miles. Happy and safe ride.

Regards
