This is my first thread in TAI.

Model:SX4 ZDI SILKY SILVER COLOR
Purchased on march 2011
Mileage:9300kms

POSITIVES:
1)Muscular,Beast like looks,good road presence
2)16 inch alloys,205/60 wide tyres
3)Superb ground clearance(really made for INDIA car) and balanced ride quality & handling
4)Engine: may sound underpowered on power,but a test drive will change the view.good in gear acceleration.initial pick up,requires mimimal gear shifts
5)Low NVH
6)Slick gearbox
7)Comfortable seats
8)Good space
9)Airy cabin,rear seat set higher than front seat which offers good road view for rear passengers
10)Features worth the price(ACC,steering mounted controls etc)
11)Large boot space
12)Brakes: best in class
13)MARUTI service back up

NEGATIVES:
1)Interior plastic quality is not the best like VW VENTO,FLUIDIC VERNA
2)No bluetooth
3)No MID
4)Rear floor hump
5)Single reversing light
6)Lacks top end punch,runs out of breath after 140km/h
7)Stiff suspension contributes to bouncy ride on low speeds
