    Simply amazing at this price!!

    Such a crazy good and futuristic product at this price is going to disrupt semi-premium SUV market. This will challenge all the SUVs upto 30 lakhs easily. Waiting for the automatic to book mine. Not to mention about how powerful the petrol engine is, in terms of power and torque, both more than the diesel variant - rare to see a petrol engine delivering more torque than their diesel siblings. Seltos, Creta, Harrier, Safari, Compass, Hector...watch out!!
