Default Re: Supercar & Import Crashes in India

The showrooms should get a speed limiter and electronics toggled off for demo cars. It's very simple to do them these days with the electronics in the car. That will save the hassle and the risk too to a certain extent. Most of the rich entitled brats think they are a prodigy on the road and turn off traction control when they sit inside a high-end car thinking they can control wheel spin with their non-existent skills just because they watched a highly experienced car reviewer do it. Most demo cars in our country are abused badly because we have a typical mindset that since it's not our car, we should test its limit as much as possible. Setting a rev and speed limiter will keep these habits in check.

It appears to have hit a biker/2 wheeler before veering off to side of road.

Watch the guy in white shirt for 2 reasons, how lucky he is to escape this and how unmoved he is with a crash happening right behind him! Maybe he was shocked or didn't get time to react.

That is the pic when parked outside the Pondy Bazar police station in T.Nagar, Chennai. I live close by and happened to spot it during my morning commute. Maybe the cops removed the plates after impounding the vehicle.

Needless to say, he very quickly managed to scare the living daylight out of both myself and the sales advisor. So much so, that half way into the drive, I had to ask him to pullover and let me also drive.

Moving on to the i20 next, I asked him to go alone on the test drive, while I stayed back in the showroom. Guess, by then, it was obvious to him
Agree! For sane, sedate driving almost all cars are suitable for our roads. More important things to look at are I think seating comfort, ergonomics, view from the drivers seat for your height etc.

People in our own community too tell Ohh the Altis is very underpowered, some other car has great low end torque, the power delivery is linear, gears 2 and 3 are not so tall etc etc. But for sane, sedate driving and for top speed of 100kmph on highways all cars sold in India can do that. Each car has something to offer and there are people who bought it for just that.
