After having some discussions here
and searching for a budget good car,(This is my first car,learning driving.)Finally bought a used Alto Lxi BSIII. :) Got the car on 2/2/2012.
45584 Kilometers when bought the car,Got it for 2.10Lakhs. Interiors
~ Stock was a mix of Grey and Blue Fabrics.Budget Stuff.Nothing to complain.Offers good comfort too. Exterior
~ Not so sporty,But i love the looks.It looks cute too.Totally a small cute exterior looking car.
~ Its a 47Bhp 796cc 3-Cylinder Engine,Enough for a beginner to learn driving.Fine for City Driving and Not the best car for highways.It mainly lacks power for overtakes at highways.I used to drive at 60-80's in highways here and its fine for me.Then with A/C on,the power of car reduces .Sometimes i use AC to control my speed.
Overall its enough for a learner or for a small family.
~ Gear shifts are neither hard nor very smooth.But its good,no issues. Brakes
~ They are Good,Not the best,but enough for Alto. Suspensions
~ Good too.Not the best,But offers good comfort for the budget. Fuel Efficiency
~ I am getting 10-15kmpl on city with A/C,Bumper to Bumper Traffic,Its a very busy city and the best i got was 22+ on highway With A/C. Service & Spares
~ I got my car serviced at my Trusted Local Mechanic. Didn't visited SVC for servicing my car.I am satisfied with the local mechanic's work and economical too.Only engine related works will be done from outside and small works are done by self. DIY!
Spares are easily available and Cheap too.I have two MGP Dealers here,Everything will be in stock almost every time.They are very good. Troubles
