    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.
