I booked this car in the year 2014 in Jaikrishna Maruti Mettupalayam Road as an Exchange for old maruti 800 which I dropped in there at the same morning as advance for the new car and paid remaining amount in loan. They didn't have any choice to select the preferred chassis number by testing multiple one engine sound. The delivery experience should be made a little better they thought it is one of their regular duty but for the customer it is special day.
This car has a 998cc engine. The pickup is little low compared to alto K10. The top speed of the car I have touched is 162Kmph. But it can go easily till 120. You can touch 140 sometimes, but more than that will be a risky ride. In 2nd gear we can push this car upto 80Kmph and Reverse gear we can pushup to 55Kmph max.
3.Looks and Performance
Looks like an Innova from the front
Side views are also good
Door handles and side mirrors are not same as the color of the body.
Back view is really awkward. I really really don't like it.
Performance is good and enough I hope the I could make a show like fastest car on the road if it was given to a perfect driver.
4.What comes to our mind when we say maruti is cheap and best, but now service cost has been increased like other cars. Repair faults are not attended with the car. They don't let you see what kind of work is done.
5.Pros and Cons
i. The rear seat entry will be convenient for old aged people because the two door connecting support metal is made in that way. In this thing it is good compared to swift.
ii. The height is good for a little luxury ride comparing to 800, alto, omni, alto K10.
iii. The boot size is little big compared to other hatchbacks
iv. It doesn't have a bucket seat in rear so you can dump 3 in the rear seat comfortably.
v. Mileage is satisfactory. I get 18.2Kmpl but they promised 23.1Kmpl.
vi. Performance satisfied.
vii. Headlamps positioned very well.
i. No Airbags & Seatbelt Warnings & ORVM
ii. No Rear Wiper and Washer
iii. Braking Traction is lesser compared to altoK10.
iv. Suspension is dissatisfactory compared to AltoK10.
v. Power of Headlamp and Horn not sufficient.
vi. Compared to alto K10 and other models you cannot see your front hood in this car you have more blind spots.
