    Underpowered 300d..good lipstick works on interiors & exteriors but lacks power punch & smoothness punch

    Pros: Space,plush interiors & features Cons: 300d underpowered for such bulky vehicle..understand 350d getting launched soon with the more punchy powertrain. No Air Suspension given at this cost is beyond my comprehension..it's affecting drive capability in bad patches & off-road capabilities.
