    Need some

    It's is good car but shock absorbers are not good. It is very hard and some time noisy. It feels some features need to be added in base variant like remote lock for all 4 power windows and led DRL and height adjustment of driver side on touch up down driver side window because at least spending on road price 8.15 Rs.

    Kiger is king

    Very nice ground clearance. Drives like an Suv. Amazing judgment when driving. I took a test drive felt amazing. I rode at a speed of 100 kilometers per hour and felt amazed like compact SUV. We are planning to buy this car in next 5 months.
