Agree. Looks like they ran out of ideas and simply stretched the grill area. Grill to me symbolizes 'guzzling' aspect of a vehicle. It may be because, most of the sports cars and trucks with oversized engines have large, aggressive grills. Also in terms of the styling trends, grills are going to disappear soon (as all cars would go EV way) and the current IC engine powered cars should adopt cues in that direction.

The interior picture itself shows why it should do well. At that price point no other car will provide that level of fit and finish.

I find the shape has a certain appeal while not being anything fabulous. There has clearly being some compromise towards practicality and function. A far cry from the ugly duckling looks of the previous model.

I think a lot of i10 owners will be seriously considering this if it meets the ask on space, engine refinement and mileage.

Drive on,
Shibu

I doubt anyone has noticed, the Manual Gear system in AMT is in opposite direction from Maruti Cars. In Maruti AMT Cars, we need to push the lever forward to downshift and backwards to upshift. In Santro AMT it is vice versa.
Very few manufacturers have - upwards and + downwards. Maruti Suzuki, Renault and BMW are the only ones I've seen. Rest all have - downwards and + upwards which is logically correct too. Down for downshift up for upshifting. Volkswagen, Tata, Hyundai, Mahindra and Audi I've seen.
Similar to the indicator stalks, it's just a matter of getting used to. I drive 2 cars with both if these in opposite directions. Once in a blue moon I do mix them up but all times I do it right subconsciously.

I think it is fine. They mentioned source Team-bhp at the bottom of the article with a link to specific page where they took the pictures from.

It’s like the gears on some of the bikes, Few had all downshifts while others had upshifts. Someone riding a bajaj 4 geared bike will be confused at first if riding a honda or a hero afterwards as the shifting is exactly reverse.

The one down rest up was the most universal gear change pattern that I was comfortable with at least on bikes. But I agree that once we get used to the shifts it doesn’t matter if we are on a bike or a car.

But to remember the pattern on an automatic, that when we should supposedly not do anything else is a bit strange. These things should be standard fare I feel.

I wonder what was wrong with designing a straight window line that they have come up this! It might look better in the flesh but the picture isn't doing any justice to the side profile at all! Coming to the over all design, I wish they had departed with the i10 design philosophy and made something bolder. I do understand that this is targeted at the mass audience and the design needs to please all and offend none but I wish they had taken some other car as a design reference. I think it's safe to say now, the previous Santro in it's Xing avatar was a looker.

The interior though, wouldn't look out of place in a premium hatch/sedan (save for those manual AC knobs)! Tough days ahead for Maruti then?

Front design is quite radical and unlike any other mass market car in the segment (even in 2-3 segments above it) This is not like a cute front of the original i10 (pre face lift) or a mature, straight forward design of the Xing. I am sure this is going to put off quite a few prospective buyers (like me).

Yes you are right here ! I can't deny this fact.

But those who are able to get over the face value of this car, and actually understand what this car is offering will be enjoying a worthwhile time behind its wheel.

Edit. Maybe the front will look better when the number plate has been attached to the wide grill.

The fit and finish and quality seems very high quality.
The only couple of irritant I find are the recirculation slider and the flap type door handles. At least the door handles could have been pull type.

Agreed. That slider looks terribly out of date, especially under that touch-screen display

Anyone noticed?



How dealers are treating a new model!


Although it very normal even for big cars but a new model to handled more carefully as the colour shades are also new to touch up.
