The only odd points i could find in this car are:
1. Typical diesel vibration/shake when cranked. It settles to a refined idle afterwards though. Didnt notice this in my friend's Nissan Sunny Diesel which i used to drive. May be i am spoilt by the fast cranking super refined Beat petrol motor.
2. Front foot wells could have been more accommodating. They could have reduced the width of gear console by 1-2 inches. This could also avoid the passenger seat rubbing gear console.
3. The build is light for a Ford. However its still well put together than 2014 Honda City.
I am in the dilemma of choosing between Trend and Titanium. I find rear washer/wiper/defogger to be useful but not a fan of those alloys in Titanium. Any Suggestions?
thanks for your wishes.
i agree , even when i turn off the engine, the car shakes a little bit. but you do get a 1500 cc engine.
even i noticed the passenger seat touching the gear console. i guess have to live with it.
if you have the budget go for the titanium , you get fog lamps , ABS
, driver seat height adjustment , auto AC , power folding mirrors , perimeter alarm and the features you mentioned. i think these are worth the 70k rs.

I think the car skips immobilizer as second key is normal one.
thanks bhvm. i took the car for a drive yesterday and people were looking at the car guessing which car is this
i am not sure , i think every car from 2010 onwards have immobilizer regardless of having a normal key. correct me if i am wrong.

Registration should not take not more than 48hrs..others please correct me if I am wrong. Because I got the number within 48hrs for 2 bikes and 2 cars so far...
Take care n enjoy..
By the way, I have a Polo (P) but never had hard clutch issue or pain on my leg etc. Looks like test drive vehicle was abused badly by the people like us trying to make it a sports car or changing gears by pressing half clutch etc.
thanks shalinder , it really is awesome
all my friends scratched their head when i told them this car has a 1.5 diesel mil. they are confused how the hell they achieved this at the price point. and the delay in registration was due to delayed payment from the bank. after the payment , i too got it within 48 hours.
the polo's clutch wasn't hard but the clutch travel was long and maybe i am habitual of short travel clutch , it seemed a little tiring to me.
