@ vipul - hopefully will decide our car next month
and even my friends will be happy if i choose the liva and not another hyundai :p
1. Yes it is fun to drive. You will have a smile on your face driving this car. The "fun" part is the good handling + stiffer suspension which you get in competitors. But you have taken a td what do you think ?
If you compare a polo steering with a hyundai's you will feel the steering is super light in the hyundai but having driven 3 hyundai cars i don't mind it and i have never suffered because of it. Car is in my control at all times.
2. Not at all. Many people say vw , tata and fiat doesn't have good ass
. I say you will have mixed experiences , some might be bad and some will be good.
Don't worry about the ass
, it's good.
Ps : first gen i20 had lots of issues which couldn't be solved till date that's why i20 complaints are more but juse see the sales of elite i20 now and you can see what the company has done since ;)
3. Now a days every service center costs is high. Be it maruti or hyundai or vw. I am not defending hyundai but every service center try to add unnecessary items like ac disinfectant , engine spray etc. Don't fall for these whichever car you choose.
Many say maruti has cheap maintenence. What if i say my fluidic verna's 2 year service costed just 2500 rupees and my friend's cng wagon r 6 month service costed 5k rupees ? Shocked right ? It's all in your head.
Honda parts costs more than hyundai , hyundai charges a little extra labor.
If i think a part is expensive , i just take quotes from the service center and the a local mechanic and decide.
Normal paid service for petrol grand i10 will be less than 3k.
The free services will cost you less than 1k since my verna's free service were just a 1k rupees.
4. Grand i10's suspension is better than my 2012 fluidic verna. What more should i say :p
The problem before 2014 was that hyundai's suspension were on softer side so every car used to go up and down on uneven roads
but after the introduction of grand i10 , they made suspension stiffer in all of the cars for a more planted ride.
My verna goes up and down and when i took a td of grand i10 on the same road i was really surprised how planted the ride was compared to my car.
