Oh in that sense. Yes for sure. That's its USP, SUV like road presence. Even though I've seen it very closely and even sat inside. I must admit a few times while passing it in the opposite direction its only later that I've realised its actually the Quanto and not the Xylo that just went by !

crazy is the right word cos some time you feell WOW..other vehciles dont annoy you, like cutting your way..trying to come more close to through you off road etc...and some times you think, M I DRIVING A TRUCK?

Thanks Vikas. It would be good if you post some pictures, of your Quanto sometime soon.
Also, umm, you might need to explain 'crazy' in a few lines. :) Since this word can be used in positive as well negative.

yup, not afull grown man can sit there though he can fit there...:p
no.. its not shaky,,,,but it robust but as you sit high (compared to verna at least)..you feel like you are driving some thing crazy..but now I am use to it and drive comfortably.

Hmm, so its good for little children at the back and an average woman at time probably. Right ?
Oh, a Bullet. Hehe. So you mean it does have considerable body roll?. Slight turning at speeds of 30-40-50, does it feel a little shaky as a first timer? ( I say first timer, because as you mentioned above, we all do get used to our car).

i have not sat there but my daughter (5year old) and my mom sat there...they did not complained any thing...my daughter was more than happy cos she can stand also, and she can play with lights above..:) my mom didnt disliked if not liked it..it was ok for her..me and my brother tried to sit there for a while but our knees were touching so we didnt tried travelling...
driving a quanto @ 70 and riding a Bullet motorcycle @ 70 gave a similar feeling in the begingin..but now i am in control.. :) i know how the vehicle will react..so plan accordingly..not a problem for me

I'll have a few specicific questions to ask you. I hope I can disturb you for that more than once. As of now, one of the few important questions I have in mind are.
Has anyone from your family sat in the 6th and 7th seat. Till now only Sitting experiences have been told, drive experiences for those sitting in 6th and 7th haven't been mentioned here. I know its not on the positive side, but would like to know your views for the same.
Also how sturdy does the car feel while driving at speeds above 60-70 ?
Vikas Gupta on 04 Dec, 2012 at 06:27 PM
yes tank full to tank full method
good things are many, and company can tell it too... bad things are also there.
for e.g. in my Verna car, when ever i stop the vehicle and turn the ignition off i can still operate my windows (glass up and down).. if i open my door only than it will stop...but in quanto i have turn the ignition ON again to pull up the window glass....stereo and other electic items dont turn off (except AC) when i start the engine, (it put load on battery, reducing its life) i dont know whether people are so technical or not...but i am bothered about these things...and i dont like the plastic used,,, its not class...seats are not an issue as i got leather seats installed and got it as per my requirement....bench seat (middle seat) is infact good in long drive as you sit straight and dont get tired...you can also ask any thing specific...

Thanks for the confirmations, And Did you calculate the FE by thea Tank Full to Tank Full method, or is it some other method that you're currently using.
Also I'd request you to tell us more about your Quanto.
Positives as well negatives.
