Exterior Good.


Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Seems quite good.


Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Haven't driven it.


Ride Quality & Handling Haven't driven it.


Final Words I liked it very much.


Areas of improvement They are not advertising it properly. Auto Car magazine doesn't even have Premier name written in its bracket when I tried to check Reviews, unlike Photos here in are perfect(44).  Its reasonably priced but slightly costly for a top-end model. They should thoroughly look after Sales  Service issues seriously n it would be like "Premier is back & is here to stay". Also they should appoint Dealer in almost every District which will make people think of buying as it will be very practically convenient for the customer if the Service Centre is in town only. I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be a hit in India as many like SUVs but the kind of Traffic system & the congested Roads & Localities India has, one would prefer a mini SUV to an SUV which retains the qualities of an SUV. All the Best Premier.
