I own a 1.4VD grey.The exteriors give you a sporty and tough look.I was one of the first customer of the cross in my town and hence when i drove it i enjoyed the popped up look of the passerbys.Since I am a doc by profession,everyone queried y i chose a sportz vehicle rather than a vehicle which most doctors own.The rails and the grilles gives the vehicle a tough look.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
The interiors are all too good when compared to its cousins the etios and etios cross. There is enough leg space and 5 persons can ride comfortably for longer distances without much weariness.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
For a diesel version there is a slight sluggishness and it takes a fewer seconds longer for the machine to bust of over the road. Riding uphill still has to be improved .The city ride when concerned is excellent.the gear shift ratios are good,still u have to make slight dealays for a sec to place gear plays. the fuel economy has been consistent for the past 1.5 years and gives me 18.75-20 km/l and long drives fetched me a decent 22km/l a number of times and that too with the aircondition on
Ride Quality & Handling
The bumpy roads and humps have given me only little concerns.My friend who has got an etios says there is much better road clearance fo the etios cross and i too have felt it quite often. stability wise its relatively better than any maruti variants.
Value for Money
Areas of improvement
More insulation to reduce the exterior sound.The pull while over taking and riding uphill.
