beautiful buy! I was always a 'BHP' guy. However, after experiencing the Laura DSG briefly and the Civic AT extensively, all those 'non-essential' features made the drive feel so special every single time! Haven't experienced a sunroof yet, do post on its usefulness in Mumbai.

Sigh, I just can't sit in my rattling Swift Vxi anymore!

thanks a lot. thats the problem, dispite of all issues i was blindly getting the swift vdi which had nothing for 5.8 laks. my parents just dint seem interested at all. at the hyundai showroom. both were so impressed and a good discount of 50k clicked the deal on spot, and money was paid. maruti needs to pull itself together. they dont offer discounts at all. why the snobbish attitude.

Default Disappointing Quality

My mother has a new i10 Automatic Transmission, and while it is a great gearbox and a smooth ride, the quality of the interior finish is poor.

For a start, the buttons for the electric windows (front and rear) are cheap plastic and feel cheap too. Then the curved dashboard always reflects into the windscreen, which is very distracting for the driver!

Having said this, the seats are comfortable and the gear change is superb, both changing up and changing down.

Fuel economy is excellent too, but the a/c isn't really up to the job in hot weather.

The main disadvantage of Automatic Transmission is that you can't get your car valet parked! They have never even seen AT and have no idea how it works!

Despite these small complaints, I would certainly recommend the vehicle if you need AT and power steering, which, as an elderly person, my mother can't do without.

If you're asking for the tire pressure because you upgraded your tires to wider ones, then sharing my experience might help. My Verna CRDI came with Bridgestone B250 185R14 stock tires. I did the recommended upgrade, to Bridgestone Turanza 195R14 sport. After delivery, I emailed Bridgestone India as well as Hyundai asking them what pressure I must maintain given that I had done this upgrade. Hyundai never replied, but Bridgestone sent me a prompt reply asking me to maintain the same pressure as recommended in the manual.

I did some more reading on this topic at that time. This is what I understood:

Like all parameters in an automobile, the recommended tire pressure is also a compromise formula, an optimized value. If you have high pressure, you will face lesser rolling resistance and consequently that will get you more fuel mileage. However, your ride will not be smooth. Too much pressure can make your tire a stone and can even damage the car due to excessive vibrations. On the other hand, a lower tire pressure will give you a smoother ride, but will increase rolling resistance, thus reducing your fuel mileage. Manufacturers give you a middle value as recommended pressure so that the ride is smooth as well as the mileage is good. Not to mention that too low pressure can affect handling as well as damage the tires.

Also, in general, the wider the tire, more your friction, since friction is proportional to the surface area of contact. So by just upgrading your tires to wider ones, you get better handling, but at the cost of some drop is fuel mileage (not significant if you upgrade within the recommended 10 to 20mm range).

Therefore in your case I guess using the same pressure as what Hyundai has suggested should help.
