On-Road 19.48 (with 14% Road Tax). At the time of launch OTR was around 21.6 to 21.7.
Yes seats are comfortable and I liked ventilated seats as well. Compared to City this car has low stance like sports car which is going to take some time adjusting to getting in/out. As I am big fan of automatic torque converters compared to CVT and Dual Clutch, I am enjoying driving this more than my City. I think people who are spending 16-17 Lacs on City top end should seriously consider Elantra AT as the experience is completely different. Space inside looks similar to City and not more than that.
Finally someone who agrees with me. ~17L OTR for City CVT Petrol is just atrocious. For just an lakh or two more, you get a car with better build quality, with decent feature list compared to City and equivalent space and A.S.S like Honda. I feel Hyundai diesels and Petrols have come a long way then they used to be. They are pretty reliable and smooth nevertheless.
I got slammed by sellers in used market when I question them about high prices for pretty beaten up City and all I get was "It is City man, it is costly!". I was like WTF!
Meanwhile, I can get pretty good deals in used Elantra fluidic one. But since I was on serious lookout for Corolla, I somehow neglected it! If only my house construction didn't come in between, who knows, I might have drove home an curvy Elantra now.
