Grand i10 is the one car that ticks all the requirement in a small car. Space; Comfort; Convenience; features. Even the Magna comes loaded with Standard driver side Airbag; Rear AC vents & a Music system. Compared to Maruti WagonR or the older version swift; i felt the cooling & the AC to be really powerful & keeps the cabin really cool with just 1 blower setting even to the rear passengers. The legroom for the rear passengers is generous and seating is comfortable too. Was surprised to see the length of the car to be shorter and yet ample of leg room. The hyundai elite i20 doesn't get as much leg room as in the grand i10 even though the length of the i20 is considerably longer.
The Driveability in the city limits & in the highways is comfortable thanks to its light steering wheel & super smoother gearshiftss!! The only thing that puts me off with the Grand i19 is the fuel economy which is just around the 10-12kms per litre mark in city & 15-16 kmpl in the highways. The other thing is the lack of low end torque and though on papers it is a 83 BHP engine; It goes short of breath when power is required for quick overtaking in the highways.
Service cost & reliability of hyundai is proved and tested so no complaints till date.
