This is actually the smartest Car Money can buy in the 4L range. I ve just done a rapidfire testing of many small cars in the range( Even more). Blasephemy apart, This one does rounds around its competition, mind you, I m talking of Stile, Estilo, UVA, Spark et al. Irony is that the car coming close enough is the spark which is selling slowly. But a Hyundai carries a lt of support in Brand value and customer satisfaction

Good Buy friends , this one rocks

Default my new i10 magna

Took delivery of my gray-color i10 Magna on friday.

Drove around extensively the weekend, and feel it to be great! And it doesn't feel like a "face-lifted" Santro!

I was promised delivery within 2 weeks.
Dunno how come this KLG is keeping you on hold for so long....
I had enquired with the dealers in chandigarh(since I am working here) and they said that they are giving ready delivery or max in 2-3 days....
Try calling them posing as a prospective customer and ask them what is the waiting period of i10 magna. Tell them that the other ones are giving within 4-5 days. I am sure this will be helpful to know whether what they are saying is genuine or not.

I have an Aveo which has a strip of beige right against the windshield and I find it quite irritating in sunlight or when passing under trees. The i10 seems to have a much bigger beige area!
The answer is "YES".
i10 has quite a big dashboard(compared with SANTRO/ZEN) and when sunlight falls on it, it does reflect on the windshield.

But personally i havent faced any problem due to this.

Hi.. Finally got my i10 magna champagne gold on friday. Could post it today only because my net connection was down.
Thanks chopra for your suggestion-the delay was told to be due to their trailer breakdown on way from chennai
I drove around during the weekend and found the vehicle really good..
Felt it very different from santro..

Hi

I took my i10 from Chandigarh to Delhi and back yesterday..
It was very satisfying, except for the back seat being a little bumpy in areas where the road condition was not that good.

The handling was excellent at speeds up to 100kph (beyond which i didn't cross coz of the "run in period"?)

Did NOT find the steering wheel to be very loose and scary at high speeds in contrary to the opinion of some team bhp members.

Got an FE of ~18 with the AC on..

Hearty congratulations achopraa! Haven't seen one i10 yet, but I know it must be a great feeling to be one of the first few to drive one around!

I am planning to buy my first car and have shortlisted I10 as one of the candidate. Now after looking at this post I am concerned. Would like to hear back from I10 owners if the absence of impact beam is true and also want to hear back from the experts on real significance of this. Is it the case with all small cars?
