    CarWale's Take

    Good Things
    • Probably the best affordable off-roader in the country
    • New-age features and cabin comfort
    • Potent powertrain and improved drivability
    • Design.
    • Interior fit and finish.
    • Feature loaded.
    Could be Better
    • Not a family car, even if it seats four
    • Lack of boot space
    • On-road dynamics could’ve been better
    • Notchy gearshifts (MT).
    • Inconsistent ride quality.
    • Top-end trims are expensive.
