First thing i wanna tell you that I'm a Rookie in writing reviews so dont know from where to start. So lets start from the time when my sister thought of buying a new car.

the budget was not so high just about 5-7 lakhs car and finally started reading reviews of different cars on theautomotiveindia.com and team bhp. The average running is around 1000-1200 km so have decided to buy a diesel car.

SWIFT :- This is my favourite car but my sister denied it as she dont wanna buy a MARUTI SUZUKI (dont why she said so)

BRIO :- as it is petrol one so dont wanna go for it but due to the refinement of petrol engine my heart goes to grab it. But the back of the car changed my mind to go for it.

POLO :- both me and my sis wanna buy this car just because of its looks. but due to high spare parts and servicing cost we also let it go for our next ( I will buy it soon ).

finally i saw the adv. of hyundai GRAND i 10 in newspaper and just found it best because of its looks and fuel efficient diesel engine . Also it was in our budget. So we decided to take a test drive and went to SAMARA HYUNDAI, JANAK PURI, DELHI.
the very next day me and my father went to the showroom and took the test drive. I found that the car has negligible turbo lag. the fit n finish is quite good. the looks OMG its completely different from the current i 10. so we check out the prices and found that MAGNA model is in our budget (6.0 lakhs OTR) so decided to take that but than i told my dad that the sportz model is also not bad as we'll get chrome door handles, push button start stop, integrated audio system and muchh more in just 43k extra so booked the car by giving a token money of RS 10k.

The salesman told us that we'll get the car in 20 -25 days later (around in 1st week of October). I was quite disappointed after hearing this [cry].

9th OCT

this is he day when we have to go and grab the car. so after doing all financial work, the showroom owner gave us the car keys and the car was ready. also they give us coconut flowers and a biscuit packet[:)]

PROS:-
1. LOOKS AND STYLING
2. FEATURES
3. 3 cylinder engine is quite impressive
4. linear driving ( turbo lag is not that much such as in swift or polo)
5. interior quality
6. fuel efficiency
7. comfort
8. quite good gearbox
9. boot space
10. ground clearance
CONS:-
1. bad speakers
2. suspension is not comparable with other cars
3. abs only in asta (o) even i20 has it in sportz model
4. no steering mounted audio controls
5. mirrors after folding are at slightly outside position
6. NO DISCOUNTS OR FREE INSURANCE

that much i've find out the cons.

SHOWROOM EXPERIENCE :-

the staff of samara hyundai is very friendly. we got the T.D. of both cars (petrol and diesel ) instantly.

So here a few PICS of the beauty.

Did you get spare headlamp bulbs?How do you find the performance and fuel efficiency?
no i didnt get any spare headlamp bulb? wanna know if abyone got this.

the fuel efficiency i dodnt check but as the company claims an average of 24kmpl, may be i can get around 20-21 Ihope so.
performance i have checked on a traffic free road i checked out the pickup its quite good. the car is around 2200rpm on above 80-90 speed which i think good for 1.1 ltr engine. the pickup i found is sufficient in traffic to overtake however someone may feel of lacking of power on highway. the engine noise is on slightly higher side

Congratulations bro! I also got a green signal from my dad for the grand i10 crdi asta. Will go to the showroom and finalize the finance options.
thanx bro and i wanna suggest you to go for asta(o) model as it has some better alloys and features if your budget permits.

Even i felt so,but later realised its because of sound insulation in diesel grand i10. when i test drove petrol Grand,horn sounded louder(lesser insulation).Still dual horn is a welcome

i appreciate your point its because of insulation but i also think that a dual horn is must
