I have never felt any car behaving like this.
I test drove the elite i20 after 45 minutes and the engine was gaining after 1900 rpm though the punch was missing and the delivery was linear.
I do have driven all these cars for ample duration. All those cars are weigh less and that
helps them in keeping the momentum (I don't think i10 is in as agile as Brio or swift).
I am not of the openion that Jazz is in the same league as Brio or Swift in city driving. with
a super smooth clutch paired with an equally good gear shift mechanism,this title weakness can
Again, just barring this, it has an excellent midrange and nice high end.
Why no one is mentioning the engine performance after 60-70 kmph?
Are we going to stuck always in 2nd and 3rd gear, below 50kmph?
What about the refinement of the engine?
what about the safety features it offers sans bottom 2 variants?
What about handling, suspension and breaks?
What about the space and practicality that it offers?
What about FE?
A single small factor which can be managed with proper gear shifts has been exagerated to a
level that creats a perception in peopele's mind that the car is "un-drivable".
I am not of the assumption that Jazz is flawless. It has a bit weak low end acceleration; a
bit overpriced and miss some fancy features.
You haven't mentioned not even a single positive point of Jazz in your drive report. The only
thing it conveys is the car is just un-drivable and every one should stay away from it.
You have the right to report like that; but being a public forum and thousands of common
buyers are going through our comments, a balanced report would have given justice to the car.
(Just my opinion)
