Many cars today boasts of some features never heard before in that segment. Many of such features (small or big) are not known to all except the owners of that car (some maybe known to all here!). So, in this thread, please share if your car has some feature, which is not present in any other car in that particular segment/price range.

Note 1: Please mention you car model name & then the feature(s).

Note 2: If that feature is present in a car of the segment below or a lower price range than yours, then its NOT a 'special' feature! For example, if you have an SX4 & it has a feature which the verna/linea/fiesta does not have but the swift has, then its not worth to be mentioned.

Let me be the first.

Car Model - Fiat Punto MJD - Emotion

Feature List
  • Fire Prevention System in case of accident
  • Electrically Adjust Outside Rear View Mirror
  • Boot Light
  • Immobilizer - This is to prevent starting of car without actual key, which sends some digital information (rolling code) to engine
  • Rear seat can be folded in 60:40 and complete 100% (I am not sure if this special though, but useful)
  • 2 trip computers & MID, to see the multiple information like Outside temp, digital clock, Fuel Consumption (Instantaneous and total) etc.
  • The car gets locked once the speed crosses 20KMPH (this cab pe programmed)
  • Follow-Me Home Head Lamp - The head lamp glows for few seconds after you come out the car and get switched-off (once you enter your home)

power & torque figures, FE, power to weight ratio are highly debatable & hence i have specified only features!

1.- Wat actually??
2.- Wagon R
3.- Indica
4.- All Marutis- iCATS
5.- Not a special feature. Even my humble 8oo has it.[50/50 & 100%]
6.- Again not a special feature-Logan.
7.- I guess iCATS has this feature. Cn somebody confirm??
8.- One heck of a useful thing, and cool too.[clap]

6.- Cant describe as a feature, a patent for mahindra though.


My Humble 800 doesnt have much feature, but if aftermarket things are counted, i can sure give many cars a run for their money..[evil]

My comments are in bold.

1.- Wat actually??
It cuts fuel connection in case of accident, to prevent catching fire.
2.- Wagon R
I am not aware this.
3.- Indica
4.- All Marutis- iCATS
I have Alto, and i am not aware if this is there. I will check and confirm.
5.- Not a special feature. Even my humble 8oo has it.[50/50 & 100%]
i already mentioned, it is useful and not a great feature.
6.- Again not a special feature-Logan.
Logan is 1 leg above. Punto is hatchback and Logan is sedan.
7.- I guess iCATS has this feature. Cn somebody confirm??
As Renegade mentioned its Autocop, and i think you should not count aftermarket accessories otherwise no car will have any special features.
8.- One heck of a useful thing, and cool too.[clap]
And guys, instead of pointing fingers, it would be better if you list your car's cool features, if any. Any useful feature, if we like, we can add to our cars.

Few More -
  • The MID shows which specific gate is open.
  • "Aero Twin" wiper from Bosch.
  • 15K KM service and oil change interval

as far as i can remember "rolling code" immobilizer i don't think maruti has.
ur punto must also be having a speed limit warning indicator!

my car- palio 1.2 nv sports
loved a few features
double crank prevention system
fire prevention system
palio was also the 1st hatch to have a 32 bit microprocessor!
the "manual" central locking in palio can be operated from co-driver side also which i haven't seen in any car yet!
the built - except for punto and fabia no other hatch in india has doors as heavy as a palio...i think i missed the 500[;)]

Add Baleno to that list.


A unique feature i noticed in Baleno is the wiper's int. functions time can be adjusted.

i agree! lets not point fingers. guys, at the same time, please mention only features & not debatable things like performance, ride quality, build quality, etc.

Few More -
[*]The MID shows which specific gate is open.
[*]"Aero Twin" wiper from Bosch.
[*]15K KM service and oil change interval
now these 3 things are interesting.

cant be really described as a feature though.

this is one really useful feature which should be present in all cars.
