power delivery is very smooth you do feel the difference in the CRDe engine..
..car feels too nervous braking down from higher speeds ...
its still very softly sprung ...bouncy ride...the rear seat leg room is still the same ...Pathetic
but they do have rear air conditioners (the one i drove did)...it also had voice alarms ..you will hear a man say "please wear the seat belts for your own safety"....it has a voice alarm when the car is running low on fuel aswell..

Its thrilling, but extremely dangerous...there should be a law against them. I've gotten into various scrapes with them basically because I cant stand the bullying. Once drove at about 40kmph or less constantly in front of one maniac half the way from Calicut to Trichur because he pushed me off the road while fighting for roadspace with another maniac. That must've been his longest drive on that route, one that he will never forget because we were all over the road as I kept him resolutely behind me.

Not to be attempted at home!

You seemed to have good luck,
Did you have any lucky charms with you at the time :-)
Just kidding

I tried a similar thing with a KSRTC BUS (Read that Karnataka state road transport)
Result one big dent on the left middle as the moron had the nerve to overtake from the left after he had pushed me off the road once

Mind you there was no road where he was driving when he overtook me
