Honda City (2004)

Yep its an old car!
But I don't want to change the car.
It still runs beautifully in the city and is very fuel efficient in Bangalore's bumper to bumper traffic.

Features wanted:
- Bluetooth music system, without changing the look of the current dashboard layout. I do not like non OEM looks which I have seen in other cars. Also do not like touchscreen music systems. Buttons are any day better.
- Cooled leather seats (have stanley leather currently)
- MID such as fuel consumption, like how many liters of petrol exactly. Would be awesome to see how fuel efficient this 14 year old car can get in a city like Bangalore, with air - con switched on for 90% of the time.

I'll restrict the wishful thinking to the price range in which the vehicles are offered:

2010 Figo Petrol:
  • 1.5 L engine of the Current Figo
  • Reverse Parking Sensors
  • Better Seats

2012 Duster 110PS:
  • Better Speakers
  • Better Seats
  • Passenger seat height adjustment
  • Bigger Brakes
  • Gearbox from the AWD

2015 Duster AWD:
  • Rear A/C Vent like 2012 model
  • Better seats
  • Placement of navigation screen above A/C vents

Fiat Linea Classic Plus

1. Aux input
2. DVD playback
3. USB input
4. 6 airbags
5. Bigger tyres like in Linea Emotion
6. Odo reading, Range and mileage show on the MID always
7. All 4 power windows with autodown and autoup like in VWs
8. Electrically adjustable ORVMs
9. Lumbar support
10. Leather seat covers since the base variant gets it.
11. Remote locking
12. Wish it had been more powerful, 73 bhp feels less and I get fatigued on long drives.
13. Rear seats fold flat
14. Auto AC, my humble Beat has it. Have to change the AC settings so many times on long drives.
15. Reverse parking camera and sensors and front parking sensors.
16. Self dimming IRVM
17. Seat belt buzzer that doesn't stop till all the passengers put it on including rear.
18. Full size spare wheel
19. Drivers and co drivers armrests
20. Bottle holders. My Ford Classic has 4, Beat has 2 and Linea has zero.
21. Rear AC vents with bottle holder in front of them either in the front or rear to keep the water chilled.
22. Short stub like antenna. This stick like one had to be removed many times while parking in multi level parking areas.
23. Google maps and navigation.
24. Mobile charging slot thats functional and works.

Will try to add to the car whatever features I can over time but I am very satisfied with the car and Fiat. Will buy a Fiat again anyday. Hope the upcoming Fiat Tipo addresses all these.

2013 Fortuner 4x4

Better brakes - I'm sure no one can disagree with this.

Otherwise I think its a heck of an SUV and I prefer the utilitarian cabin instead of a 747 sort of cockpit

4.4 reverse sensors instead of 2

Default Re: What features do you wish your car had?

Features? Well, the elite i20 in the Asta trim comes fairly loaded. But yes, some more features wouldn't go amiss . So here's my take:

1. Revolving number plates: to fool even the most astute Indian copper, when I'm caught jumping the signal.

2. Beggar proof windscreen: so tramps and beggars at traffic lights & signals can't see inside, and so can't come knock on the glass.

3. On board Star Wars "The Force" generator: so, like Obi Wan Kenobi, at the push of a button I can just move that errant & annoying, lane hogging, diesel fume spewing, overloaded/overcrowded three wheeler out of the way.

4. Camouflage generator: so I can disguise my piddly little hatchback into a mammoth Landcruiser Prado with political plates & regional graffiti, at the press of a button, and then people will just run away and clear the road for me.

5. Infinitely height adjustable suspension: so no matter how deep the pothole is, I should be able to raise the ride height and sail over it in peace.

6. Amphibious capabilities: so no matter how much it rained last night, i should be able to go wherever the heck I want without worrying about sinking & hydrostatic locks.

7. Intelligent biker repelling wing mirrors & bumpers: Everytime a biker approaches my car and tries to squeeze into a gap that can't be squeezed into, the wing mirrors & bumpers should expand automatically and block the biker from attempting the move.

8. Random political party affiliation generating nano-paint: if I'm traveling through an area with affiliations to a known political party, the paint should automatically match that parties chosen color, like say, orange! Then do whatever I want & get away with it, because my car bears the same color! Easy peasy.

9. Toll booth receipt generator:: Because, who the heck likes paying toll, amirite?

And, the ultimate, Pièce De Résistance:

10. Targeted EMP burst generator: pissing me off with your gas guzzling, smoke spewing, lane hogging, bullying piece of s#!7 vehicle? how about I fire a targeted burst of EMP at your engine and disable it! Eat that, sucker!

- Cabin filter
- Better tires than the crappy Goodyear/MRF
- Lighted steering controls as well as power window buttons
- Auto up power windows, at least the driver's
