Was trying for upgrade from 9 years old Santro which has served me well. Budget initially was 4-5 lakhs. tried Punto, Getz at that time. Punto was dropped due to lag in pick initally, also interior was not very appealing.
I was also looking for an upgrade from 1 ltr /1.2 ltr to higher grade level.
Initial search is then moved to I20. Since we have already an exp with Hyundai and its services family was keen to buy from Hyundai itself.
sales guy bought car to home, TD done , Space factor is gud but i was disappointed with intial pick up . didnt feel much pick from 3rd gear other than revin more. Since back then the engine was same as of i10 1.2 kappa the feeling of power was less. also the price was nearing 5.5 lk.
Then sales guy said go for accent . Its packed with features only thing is its one model which has been a while being launched. nearing to phase out stages now. Any how i decided to try a TD. next day sales guy called and gave a TD car. I was surprised with the pack of features for the model.
interior looks executive with wooden finish, leather wrapped steering cover and gear knob. Sitting position was good added with features like steering adjustability , power steering, braking, Defogger , Immobilizer . Price range coming around 5.5 on road. after disc 5.3. Immediately fell in love with the car with such class interior. Td drove it. couldn't drive much but car felt smooth with long gear length
. Felt drive comfortable a far better from Santro.
Discussed with parents and decided to go with Accent metallic grey. price range after discounts ranged to 5.3 lakh. Dealer offered seat cover, mat as offer.
Drive as cool since till first service there was limit in speed didnt rev much. car was smooth for city drive. drive position is gud. steering light.
