I realised (thanks to our team here (Hyundai Grand i10 : Official Review)) that I had the key in my pocket while I was doing this - no wonder it would open each time I pressed the boot unlock button.

Have tried it with the key far away and it doesn't open.

Hi Grand23

Yesterday took the test drive of Grand Diesel. Well I had mixed response.
I liked all the features except auto door locking, which i have been used to since 1999 (Autocops in Santro)
I had problem with the starting torque and the engine only kicks in after 1500 rpm. Even for city driving, i would expect a better initial torgue.

The engine behaves well between 1500 to 3000, thereafter it seems to cut-off. Now how is that possible as maximum rpm is 4000 at least (rated power level)

Was inclined for Sports or Asta but may have go for Asta(O) for ABS & Airbags.
This puts me in another segment fight, as in comparison to Asta(O), you have new polo 1.5 Diesel.
Polo all the model have common safety features.
I did take the test drive of Polo and I was impressed. once you are in third gear, you need not change gears, even for U-turn and I also tested it for start-stop situation.

Hello BHPians,
After long time I am here. I was bit busy in construction of my house.

I hope the ownership thread of my car would have helped most of them.
My car is now crossed 22000 kms in 1 year 4 months. Itís been pleasure to drive the car.

Few issues I faced was,
  • Tyre (Goodyear) damage when I ran into pot hole.
  • Pickup was too low. After long drive around 1200 kms, I felt the car was losing the pickup power at low end gears. I took the car to service, but adviser said everything is fine there was no issue. But still I was experiencing same thing. But after few days, it got settled by itself. I couldnít understand what is the reason? I am sure some experts can throw some light on this.
Okay, now the real surprise is here. I was planning to treat my car after she completes one year of service. But somehow couldnít do it due to my budget issue.
Then finally in December, I made necessary arrangements to treat her. I took her to the new 3M showroom which was located at Hopefarm circle, Whitefield Main Road.

About 3M Hopefarm:
The manager Mr.Kumar was very kind in understanding the requirements of the customer. He also gave lot of information on 3M car care products and services. He has setup the service center very close to main road of Whitefield-ITPL.

I took some time to understand the services he is providing and then made decision to go for:
  • UV protection
  • Exterior and Interior Cleaning
  • Car flooring mats
  • Stripes over car
I will let my pictures to talk about:

[*]Stripes over car I will let my pictures to talk about

Hi Grand23, car looks really neat and well maintained.

My Asta (0) in twilight blue also needs a similar clean-up treatment.

Could you please help me with two things?

The overall cost of this entire package and service experience.
The exact cost of the stripes over the car. Looks really good and am guessing would look on my car's twilight blue as well? What do you think?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi Parth,

The overall cost of entire package was 24130/- Rupees.
Cost Breakup:
Wraps (Stripes) - 8740/- Rupees. 190 Rupees per square feet.
Mats - 4800/- Rupees. 240 Rupees per square feet.
I took annual car treatment package - 10590/- Rupees (Which includes 3 UV Car treatment, 5 free car washes).

The overall experience was good.
It's a new setup, hence wrap film was only available in black color. But now they have more colors. Attention to detail is good but can be better. Wrap films are trimmed manually by using flat scale, I think now they are planning to trim it by machine. So expect more precise wrap films on the body.

You can contact Mr.Kumar (3M manager) for more details.
Contact: 9845154455

For twilight blue, try white wrap film.

Happy revving..

Thanks for the heads-up GRAND23, most helpful.

Certainly planning on visiting this outlet soon and figuring out what needs to be done. I agree, white should look good as well. Let me see some samples in person and then take a call.

Thanks a lot!

Hi Wanderer,
Yup, Auto door locking is missing in this car.
But there is manual lock/unlock button on the driver side door.

You are right about starting torque, but I didn't experienced initially. I experienced it after 15000 kms. Technically, I am not aware why this is happening? I took my car to service adviser, he says 3-Cylinder diesel behaves in this way after few thousands of kms.

Yes, 1500-300 rpm is the sweet spot. Frankly speaking, car behaves like a petrol engine. Smooth torque delivery, low noise levels.

Yeah, not only polo you may get overlap with i20 as well.
In Grand too, you can do u-turn without changing gear from second to first. The low end torque delivery is pretty good.
The plus point with Hyundai is established service network against polo. In my personal experience service network matters lot, when you are frequent Wanderer.

Make a wise decision!

Hi

Thanks for reply.

I finally bought Grand i10 diesel Asta on Diwali.

I did have some apprehension about initial torque but its not so much of a concern now. In fact I find it better than i20 diesel.

I don't know about drop in torque after initial run-in period but it can't be true, there might be other reason.

Try changing the Petrol Pump. This drop could be due to adulterated diesel or water in diesel.
Another issue is vibration after switching off the engine, but I guess, its the nature of a 3-cylinder diesel engine.
