So after reading a lot of reviews, asking questions and TDing bought this Nova White Italian Beast.
Paid 6.5 lac ( with insurance, accessories, 4 year Warranty and RSA ) (Ex-Showroom)
Salesman was very generous throughout the purchase process.
- While closing the door with a loud thud, i just felt sitting in a big car and not a hatchback.
- Drove for around an hour in and out of traffic.
- As known to everyone, the Driving quality is superb.
- As you accelerate the car it just digs into the road giving you a sense of security. It was not a superhighway so bumps and uneven road was expected but car cruised through everything with excellence.
- Automatic AC is chilling( as in every new car ) but it is easy to navigate with that temperature knob.
- Steering controls are easy to use.
- Blue me was configured in no time ( iPhone and HTC ).
- You feel good while shifting gears because of the Leather mounted gear knob
- Tyres are wide and big. The puntos i TDed were having apollo tyres but this batch has come with Goodyear tyres. Don't know about the quality of Goodyears.
-/+ ( Long Clutch ): As i was driving i felt that the clutch is very long. You have to go a long way to change the gear. But on the other hand found out that in the city with bumper to bumper traffic i can move in first and second gear by just releasing the clutch and without pressing any accelerator. Which is kind of good when you move just a few meters and have to stop again.
-/+ ( USB Port ): hmmmm.. USB port in the Glovebox of the car. It helps if you move also move around with new people. They don't know where the music is being played, reducing the risk of theft. But it is also a bit hard to place it. You have bend over to properly put it into place. But we do this once a month so it is kind of a positive.
- ( Length of seats ): ( Just my opinion ) Front seats are very long( in height ) compared to other hatchbacks and the passengers sitting in the rear cannot see ahead on the road, which i think is not a good thing because in our country everyone likes to watch the road ahead as if they themselves are driving. I think by removing the head rests i can solve that problem. Also long seats kind of act as a barrier if you are talking to the people sitting in the front.
- Rear-View: It is not wide and sometimes troubles you while reversing the car.
So this is my review till now.
