    Eye catching

    Good riding experience and car looks awesome in both interior and exterior design. Good competitor for Toyota Fortuner. We are expecting manual transmission from Isuzu company. The pick up is really very powerful. Engine and inbuilt quality of car is very good. Important factor is car have good control in higher.

    Only Features doesn't support the car Safety Shud Be tho most priority!

    If you are spending 30 Lakhs on the car at least u want the safety of level of 30 lakhs, not 3 Lakh! Totally disappointed on safety. Base model shud behave more safety features, for safety concern u have to buy higher variant, Features are not concerned it has all features which anyone wants but it's not right car according to the price.
