    DRIVING:
    Few hundred kilometers
    Buying Experience: We had to wait for 2.5 months for our variant - HTK Plus DCT Black Pearl. The front end sales staff gave us wrong info regarding delivery multiple times and then stopped picking up our calls. We escalated it to the senior staff and only then did we get a proper response. 2. Driving Experience: DCT variant is just so smooth that you don't even notice the gear shifts. It's a good experience driving in traffic as well as on highways. I have two complaints though 2.1 The handling could have been more sporty. You won't get confidence manoeuvring at high speeds (100+) even though you won't feel you're driving at 100+ if you're doing that in a straight line. There is a lil body roll. 2.2 The apple car play and android auto is very buggy. It keeps getting disconnected and that is very annoying and is a huge distraction while driving. Imagine driving in Delhi traffic and navigating using Google Maps via apple car play and then suddenly it gets disconnected. You need to press multiple keys on the infotainment screen to get it back and this keeps happening over and over. 3. Looks & Performance: It feels very sophisticated from outside as well as from inside. The cabin feel is amazing. It'll give mileage from 10-20 depending on which mode you drive, how you drive and the traffic conditions. The max I got from one of the trips was 21Kmpl but you rarely get this much mileage. 15 is more realistic. The throttle feels amazing and powerful when you're driving in the sports mode. 4. Servicing and Maintenance: I've driven 1.5k KMs so far and the first service is free, so can't say much about this.
