My Switchblade Silver Chevrolet Enjoy LTZ TDCi 7 seater
The Chinese with an Italian heart and American Badge, but from a practical point of view very useful.
The so called globalization outcome.
Planning to buy a 6/7/8 seater in very near future.
Nature of drive: - Weekly trip of 650 kilometers with 5 persons (will increase to 6 in few months) on board with luggage and office commuting on weekdays with 1 or 2 on board.
Current weekly drive: - 2011 Indica Vista with national engine (Quadrajet) (I didn't by swift only because of the space constraints) I love Maruthi and hate Tata. But in a serious relationship with the Fiat Indian National Engine!
The cars shortlisted now to buy:-
Aria: - back off go to hell, even though the dealer offered me some serious discounts, not a Tata any more only because of the build quality.
Bolero / Xylo: - took the test drive, but in long trips dizziness makes the co passengers to puke which will be a pain for me. Also the mileage is okay! The new xylo is definitely a long distance rider.
Ertiga: - I love it and I could have booked the ZDI long back, but the other passengers especially my dad is not giving the green signal he looks only space and comfort, he says the comfort in Ertiga is less when compared to Enjoy in terms of space and seating
ENJOY :- there are hell lot of negative points which is already explained in the **** official thread by many, but the mileage ,price and comfort for co passenger’s make me turning head towards it seriously from a practical point of view.
Innova: - KMPL Diesel is the only concern rest all is top notch except the price
Ashok Leyland stile (Not Evalia):- No information was available on the time I booked Enjoy!
I am planning for LTZ because of the electrical outside rearview adjustment, ABS
Definitely, not for the alloy wheels
September 27:- Sold my 2011 Tata indica vista quadrajet
September 28:- Drove the Enjoy diesel LTZ (Test vehicle at Thrissur showroom) fitted with Red rooster racing Tuning box and was quite impressed with the response.
September 30:- Trivandrum, Booked My Switchblade Silver Chevrolet Enjoy LTZ TDCi 7 seater at DEEDI Motors.
Since it was the last working day of second fiscal / half yearly financial closing day, I bargained till 6 PM and got good discounts too.
