New bee alert,
Hi Guys, Proud owner of a Grand i10 - Asta 1.2
I been watching this thread from 2 weeks but due to my busy schedule never had time to share my opinion. Manage to get some time today so here it goes. * Battery draining issue.
(Since the is pretty hot issue with Grand picked it first)
Didn't knew about the battery draining issue when i took the delivery on Nov-18. Brought the car home Parked it in the parking straight for 5 days. Started the car on 6th day, with just a push of a button the engine was ON without any hiccups. After driving the car to my parents and return, left the car in parking for 5 more days, during these 5 days i was going through many grand i10 threads here and some other website and came across the battery draining issue
. Honestly i was sad after reading the comments on Hyundai's fb page.
Started the car again on 6th day it started on single push of a button, very happy at this moment but now I'm thinking "Whats gone happen if i leave the car untouched for more than 7 days, it can't be an keyless entry/start problem, this is not the first time Hyundai is introducing this technology it was there already in i20". Drove the car again to my parents and return, this time the car was standing idle for almost a week. 2nd - 7th-Dec. Started it on 8th-Dec and again no issue started with push of a button.
Hope Hyundai has sorted the issue with new models. I will keep this thread updated. * Riding quality.
Me and My wife absolutely love this car. Ride quality is smooth on both city/highway. Driven it 120Km/h on highway and this car just floats, in fact i did not even notice i was doing 120 until i saw the speedometer. With AC on i never felt tired driving this car. Noise cancelation inside the cabin is really superb, my 9 month old baby sleeps peacefully throughout the journey. Never heard/felt any vibration from the engine during idle/running. Parents were very happy with the space at back and Rear AC vents cooled the backseats very fast. * FE.
Although i have yet try the Full tank to Full tank method, with the help of the trip computer and refuel indicator ON i was getting around 17 on highway with AC. My driving style is decent and i prefer changing the gears on 2000Rpm although the gear shift indicator fires up around 2100 - 2200Rpm. * Features
Outstanding features best in its class. Filled with many features here are my favourites.
1, Key less Entry/Start stop button. (Key always stays in my packed. Use the button in door opener to lock/unlock the car.
2, Folding mirrors.
3, Leather rapped steering with mounted remote controls.
4, Rear AC vents.
5, Press button dicky opening and its available space.
6, Rever parking censers.
7, Ipod connectivity through built in USB/bluetooth and 2x 12V charger ports.
8, Cooled glove box, water bottle space in all 4 doors and back seat legroom.
9, Built in music system. (Sound quality is decent) Accessories i got with this car.
1, Rubber mats.
2, Cheap Perfume. (All i can smell inside the car is the smell of a new car)
3, Idol. Accessories that i brought.
1, Car cover.
2, Transparent mats.
This car comes with Anti rust coating (visible on the metal just below the doors). I'm planning to get one more coat done. Things i thought that were not up to the mark.
1, Speedometer is not accurate +5 Km/h higher than the correct speed. Compared it with my iPhone app.
2, 5th wheel is not an alloy.
3, Felt the clutch was very soft, took some time to get use it.
At beginning i thought of writing my own review but later i thought it would be very helpful for people planning to buy this car if they can find most of the information under single thread.
Here are some photos. Cheers
