Black is just launched and one of our members from Bangalore will soon have one. Don't want to break the suspense.

Default Verna touched 200 kmph?! Was it safe?

Quoted in part for clarification

On which road in India did you manage to reach 200 kmph?! Was it safe?

"I am ZAPPED.................... DUH...............processing command ........................ Dunno why these stupid junkies need sudden speed........... well lets give it to them anyways" !
WOW! I am so surpirsed on how do you manage to express this beheviour so perfectly! I have an ANHC AT and sometimes, I do feel the same and I was wanting words to express this....great!

So, is it like, all ATs display this kind of beheviour when flogged hard?

You need to press the pedal deeper to trigger DBW/ECU electronics to execute a kick-down. Yes one would feel some delay in response. This is more so in D mode and is when paddle-shifters/tip-tronic come in handy. Use 'S' mode otherwise.
