No doubt. Esteem is a Good car in terms of value. But esteem cant top up 170+ which getz can do.
Hey Spawner Bro.... Has anybody ever heard about Getz being faster than Esteem. Can you please tell us what you mean by faster? - is it acceleration or top speed?

How can you say that Getz with a 0-100 timing of about 14 secs is faster than an esteem?

spawner - sorry to tell you mate. the getz is slower than the esteem. nad your written about the elantra beating the civic etc. ive been using one for the past few weeks. and its quick no doubt but i dont think it beats the civic. at least not the way you make it sound like. oh yeah and it give me 5kmpl in city.

and theres no way in hell you are beating civics in your accent unless you have an elantra engine in it or the other cars were running in limp mode.

You guys don't know anything. The Hyundai accent 1.6 comes with a 102bhp engine plus a 102bhp gearbox. That makes it a 204 brake horse gear power (bhgp) powerhouse. Obviously it can beat any car on Indian roads.

And I always thought that the engines generated the power, and the gearbox helped in putting that power to the road.

Boy was I wrong.

PS : Blackpearl, stop spending money on these stupid mod-shods, just plonk an accent gearbox in your car and you will have another 102 horses to pull you.

Alright guys, let's not continue this. What Spawner says might defy logic, but he is entitled to his opinion. - Mod Team

This is not a discussion thread, only report top speeds here. Any more off-topic discussion regarding Spawner's claim will be considered spamming.

165kmph during run-in period and i am sure the rpm must be crazily tilting upwards of 4.5K.

So mate, this aint a run-in run anymore, you can take it to its tops which i guess is about 190kmph ( speedo)

189kmph in a 2003 Baleno on NH4 mid last year... it just didn't seem to push any more and I had to deal with my wife asking me to slow down :P I top 170 quite often when I drive outside the city.
