Exterior, few drawbacks i feel are lack of body coloured door handles and mirrors in lxi model, and ugly design of the boot door, where minor damages can have a direct impact on boot door causing dents.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
Interior scores in Features and comfort but lacks in space, a few extra storage spaces can be provided. Now that the base variants comes with ABS and AIRBAGS, i am fortunate to get my car in 15 days for the optional variant, which generally take 2 months as mentioned by delaer. Safety features are top notch with Airbags and ABS with EBD.
Comfort levels like front two power windows, Remote central locking are provided as standard
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
This is one section where i could not complain about maruti engineers work. The engine does the job what it is suited for. The Pick up and NVH levels are fantastic, where u cannot notice the engine noise when car is manuevering. The gearbox is a sleek on with shorter gear shifts and gives u the feel of rigin a sporty car. Coming to fuel economy, i drove a total of 1170kms which city ride is 570kms and highway ride is 600kms. In the initial city ride, the MID was showing an average of 15kmpl. But after the Highway trip of 600kms cruising between 80 to 100kmph with two pax onboard and 4 heavy bags, the average FE in MID shot to 18kmpl, which says that the highway FE is around 21kmpl which is an impressive one for Petrol Car.
Ride Quality & Handling
On the Highway it manuevers smoothly and changing lanes was an easy job which can be done with power steering using a single hand. ABS with EBD is more helpful when driving with an unbalanced load which helped me in few cases on highway ride
The final verdict would be, if you are looking for a car in 6lac budget, go for it blind
Areas of improvement
As mentioned above, boot space and it's door design can be modified. Old design is more appealing
