Thumbs up Nice Snaps

Hey,
It sure does look cute! Aptly named "TiffinBox" by your dad.

Can we have more pics of the interior?
How is the legroom for rear passengers ? is it really scarce ?

Don't worry mate am sure as Hyundai ain't a Maruti so no delays as such.

Moreover if you check my signature am also awaiting its launch to buy(though maybe Linea if priced correctly may steal my heart from i20 in midway)

It looks great !
I feel darker shades would have been even more attractive, something like red color.
On the whole, you have chosen the best car for your mom to drive in the city.

Congrats - A* looks decent in this color!!

btw, What is it with maruti and reversing? This is a quantum ugly leap ahead of the swift's horrendous C pillars.

With all those useless stickers, how does your mom reverse? I find swift a pain - this seems worse!

/NOM - the rest is surely typical good MSIL stuff!

I somehow felt the quality is on par with Swift and SX4. But since the car is a segment lower than the Swift, it feels more solid. That is, same sheet metal quality, smaller size, it feels more solid. But one thing I appreciate is, doors don't shut with a gentle push. They have to be shut hard. Thats how the TD car was. Is it same with your car too?

Hi memo,

Any update on the mileage? I think you would have driven enough to get an idea by now?

Thanks!
