Thanked: 14 Times

Have driven this for around 6 + months now.
No issues so far. All is well.

Average FE (with AC on all the time) in city traffic = 11 kmpl
(I have noticed that in this car the FE actually goes up as much as 10% using Speed petrol ! I mean the car runs more in 1000 bucks worth of speed than 1000 bucks worth on regular petrol. This has been observed multiple times.)

Worst has been around 8.5 kmpl in bad traffic.
Never taken it out on highways yet.
  • Changed wiper blades (300 INR), engine oil to castrol magnatec (900 INR) & coolant.
  • Garware tints all around - 4000 INR
  • Added some padding and got art leather seat covers done - 4000 INR (still not happy here - NEED HELP )

ICE added -

Kenwood execlon x993 HU (with BT)
Front JL Audio co-axes
Rear JL Audio 6*9s

All standard fitment - no cutting panels or messing around with the wires or boot space.
Nice clean sound with punchy bass.
BT works like a charm.
Damping yet to be done.

Also - during next service, need to get the transmission fluid and brake fluid now changed now.

very usefull and detailed review about a 'real city car'

with the ever increasing traffic,
guess in future more users will opt for AT versions.

  • Buy a seat from another car that you like (Palio's is great) and get it fitted.
