    DRIVING:
    Its my mate since ages
    We purchased the car in 2018, in the SX(O) 1.6 AT spec with the torque converter automatic. Currently the odometer reads 35000 km's. The ownership experience in the last 3 years have been pleasant apart from a few incidents, one where both the headlamps started to develop condensation and after many emails and complaints they were replaced under warranty. The other time the steering reduction gear failed, the only symptom of this was a rattling sound this too was replaced under warranty. The driving experience is very good, the car has sorted highway manners and is extremely easy to drive. The NVH levels are stellar, and the car overall is very refined and silent even after 3 years. The torque converter box responds best to a light foot. If you drive it spiritedly you will have to modulate the throttle very carefully to control the gearbox as too much input will make the gearbox drop two gears instead of one, and then the engine becomes very vocal, in these situations its best to use the excellent manual mode. Unfortunately there are no paddle shifters, there is a tiptronic function on the gear lever. The mileage is expectedly poor for a petrol torque converter, it averages 9-10kpl in city driving and on the highway cruising it delivers anywhere from 14-16kpl. This car is prefect for long journeys the ergonomics are spot on, the ventilated seats are a boon in Indian weather. As far as features and infotainment go Apple Car Play and Android Auto are the best features, there is a button to invoke Sri/Google Assistant from the steering. Cruise control is a useful feature too it can help on ling empty stretches. Servicing and maintenance costs aren't too bad they are in line with what you would expect for a car of this segment. Coming to the cons, the sheet metal gets dings easily from stones etc., there are a few small depressions on my car even though it has never touched anything. The interior plastics are hard and scratchy. Paint quality isn't too great but apart from these small flaws its a great car to own. It has been a pleasant experience so far. I would recommend getting the extended warranty for 5 years as there are a lot of electronics and everything is eye wateringly expensive ( a pair of projector headlamps cost 60k+).
