Considering that the top end version (even without the optional sunroof) will cost more than 5 lakhs on road Delhi (excluding discounts), the A/T may be launched (if at all) in a lower spec version only.

Hi Folks, finally i m in TBHP with my first post on my new car booking , yes, i booked I10 Magna today itself and couldn't able to stop my excitement on sharing this new with TBHP members as i m a regular follower of TBHP.

Here are my booking details :
i booked I10 magna (gray), on road price is 4.54lks (hyderabad) and i would be getting my car on this sunday.

Here are my impressions which made me choose I10 over Santro XO (which i booked last month n canceled it for I10 today)

Exteriors :
refreshing, i opted Gray colored and front grill with H badge in combination with gray color body felt great to me.

Side look, it looked like a compact car as in fact its B segment car, but surprisingly the front view gives u a feel of a big car
Rear view was good not nothing special except the boot release with H badge

Interiors :
This is what made me to choosing this beauty over Santro. No comparison to any car in this segment, in fact the interiors are better to most cars of B+ segment.
I m 5'10 n when adjusted properly myself in the driver seat i felt the I-Steering was really cool to use. i don't want to detail more on interiors as we had good enough from all our members already.
rear seating was comfortable and was better compared to santro & WagonR. In Santro i used to feel like i am sitting on rather than sitting in the seat. Better thing about the rear is, hand rest with PW switches on then unlike in santro. Rear width was best in comparison to any car in this segment.
Surprisingly when u get into the car, u definitely feel like u r in a big car, probably that cud be because of the refreshing interiors.
I disliked on thing in the interiors. There cud have been more storage slots been provided like in WaganR.
speakers slots are provided in all the 4 doors, so i need to see how they will sound.
Boot space is almost similar to Santro, a boot light has been provided in magna.

Well, now the most awaited one, abt the drive. I was lucky to get a TD even though there was no TD officially started in Hyd. I got it through my friend.
They got me the test vehicle which was already loaded with 3 H-people, so with me it was 4. First impression when i opened the Test vechicle, WOW what a cool AC (surprisingly blower was at 2 level). Its was in fact terrific. I initially sat in the rear to feel the comfort. Its good.
I then moved to the driver seat, adjusted to my comfort and immediately felt the gear position was really good. Thanks to HY for their initiation in the B segment.
I gear shift felt little hard, i know it happens to be with new vehicle. But from 2-3-4 was good.
With I10, H is going ga ga over the engine(IRDE) refinement n i felt its true, it was really noiseless. absolute calm cabin.
I was surprised with the torque. With 4 members on board, in third gear i was able to move on the speed breakers with out any gear shift and that too with AC on and absolutely there was NO rattling at all. It gave a confidence of lower gear shift even in our heavy traffic.

Well to sum up all, i decided to give up 40K for, best interiors, similar feature of XO, refreshing looks, well refined 16V engine (santro was 12Volves engine), nice torque, and good I-touches like steering, front seats etc, etc.

Will post u the images once i get my much awaited car I10.

hope this will help if anyone is considering I10.

Great review shobit15! You seem to have looked into every possible information to test out. The brakes not performing as how we expected is one downside I guess. Did you take any pictures of the interior?

I hope this comes with a better & refined Auto tranny than the Santro.

Btw, kalyan_I10, congrats on your booking for i10. Hope you recieve it soon and be the first BHPian to get it, and I hope it lives up to all your expectations.

cya

I booked it @ Talwar Begempet. They will prepare the vehicle on saturday, like installing the music system, remote locking and other accessories. i asked them to deliver the vehicle on sunday as its dasami and they agreed to it. They said like they got 30 cars in the first bunch and said 20+ were booked already which they wud be delivering till nxt week. They said it might take a month more to get the next batch.

Are you getting these accessories free as in Santro ? Or you paying extra for it ? If its free then it is real VFM especially the Magna.

Does this have temperature/climate control on A/C, probably fully loaded one should had this feature.

I thought since the pics are already there on the web, I didn't click.
