  1. Dear friends, I own a Tata Nexon AMT XZA+ model for last 3 years. Recently I went to Hyndai show room and found I20 N line DCT (top model) and liked the same very much. But when I enquired about it's on road price in Delhi, the same was informed to be INR 13.5 Lacs. I liked the interior and exterior of this car very much. I also went to volkswagon showroom to check the new Taigun. I liked the exterior, doors appered to be sturdy but I found the interior to be dull. I also observed the reversing camera of substandard quality. Although I am comfortable at arranging Rs 14 Lacs but am slightly confused weather to go for the taigun at an additinal expenditure of Rs 6 lacs more. I do not want to take MG Astor because its a completely new car and not tried and tasted. Moreover the thai support at the rear seat is less. I want a car with DCT/DSG automatic which has modern and good quality interiors. My average running per month is hardly 500 Km. Request the forum to please guide me. Thanks, Rakesh
  2. If you are considering i20 Asta (O), nothing better than her. She has got 16" tires with diamond cut alloys, 6 airbags with other safety features, smart key features. I think, front looks of Amaze is better than its rear which is flat and ugly. The new i20 now looks better from rear and with projector headlamps, it looks masculine from front. Interiors of Amaze is modern and is better than i20 (I think, it is even better than city). I have driven i20 and observed driving to be effortless with its smooth steering wheels. I would suggest, please drive Amaze also to decide finally. In my view, Nexon has got maximum features and appears to be safest car due to being a SUV and high driving position.
  3. Thanks very much for your guidance. In fact today i took test drive of new i20 and got impressed with driver quality and better interiros very well. However, once again when i visited TATA showroom at Mathura road to check delivery status, i found a Nexon in showroom having very fantastic interiors and exterior looks as well. ok, i shall stick to my first decision
  4. Hi, I have booked a TATA Nexon XZ+ petrol in last week of January'18 and waiting for delivery. However, I visited Auto expo 2018 in greater Noida to see the new Elite i20 launced by Hyundai. Post this I am in a state of confusion whether to consider Nexon as my next car or not. Prior to booking of this new mini SUV of TATA, I was told by few of my friends that although the car's specification is good including its drivieability, but the service level of TATA still requires major improvement and I will have to face issues later on. On the other hand, the i20 has been a great car and now Hyundai have launced a new facelift with addition of few new features once again including a 7" touch screen inside. The overall looks of car from front and rear has also been made aggressive. Against 2 nos. airbags of TATA, the Elite i20 has minimum 4 airbags and appears to be safer. Moreover the after sales services of Hyndai is supposed to be far better than TATA. But looks wise, NEXON still imprss me a lot. I am thereofore confused and unable to analyse my decision on opting TATA car in front of i20. Please guide me.
  5. Please go for Nexon which is a head turner. Moreover, it has 16 inch goodyear tyre which enhances it look and ground clearance capabilities. Nexon do not carry its spare wheel hanging out side (looks odd in ecosports). The only thing ecosports is having is its 8 inch touchscreen which is better illuminated than nexon. Interiors of Nexon otherwise are far better than ecosports
  6. I think Fiat will replace Linea with Cronos which is a better option with great looks and impressive interiors
  7. Nexon has edge over other small SUVs and mid sized sedan as regards interior quality, fit & finish are concerned. The time you enter inside the cabin, you will scream 'Wow'. it is unfortunate that TATA is delaying in releasing AMT version which is much awaited by people leaving in cities
  8. @PRANAB It seems you are disparately waiting for CRUZE owner
  9. GM has launched the new Chevrolet Cruze in India which is important car for them keeping in view their future growth prospects in India. In my view, its agressive pricing coupled with punchy diesel engine is hard to ignore. The car is stylist from inside and outside, is longer than Civic, Corolla, Jetta and Laura. Can we compare cruz with these cars in other important aspects? Is this car is really worth buying?
  10. Hi there We all are facing extreamly hot summer this year with temp 40-44 degree C. My car is looking like a fire pack and not comfortable at all till it passes 30-40 minutes from start with AC on. I afraid of some accident due to high body temperature. The car can be parked under a shade to avoid this but this facility is not available everywhere. Please suggest me for preventive steps to avoid any accident..thanks
  11. This is a good news for Chevy owners. GM are trying to expand their business in India. Their cars are very comfortable and good looking and they have to work hard to increase their sale figure including some innovations in marketing. Surprisingly the AVEO 1.4/1.6 are not amongst the best sellers despite better look, comfort and ride quality than its competitors. I am also an owner of this car. I know few optra owners wo are quite satisfied people. But News coming from US for GM's financial breakdown which too will not be in favour of their business.
  12. Not a great look.... I m not impressed, its a simple shape only. In fact Ford are working more on Fiesta and have avoided IKON due to this.
  13. ...then i think converting your car's gearbox into automatic will be best solution..and what is the problem in brake ??can u explain it...........if u have problem in left side road clearance u shud use the left side ORVM or IRVM Hi Vibhor, Thanks for replying. The car is wide and whereas I can easily see my right side from where I am driving, left side is completely missing, I always have confusion and use to ask my co-driver for clearance of this side. Any idea as even after height adjustment of driver's seat, I am facing this problem. Moreover, I use to bent towards gear for shifting which is dangerous.
  14. I have just competed driving-training. I have also got my first Car Aveo 1.4 LS Limited Edition and drive it upto 100 Km appx independently.<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> While learning to drive I have noticed my lack of co-ordination between the clutch, gearshifts and brake operation. A number of times I have changed the gear without properly pressing the clutch. How do I overcome these while driving my new Car? Please suggest some tips. I also have very little perception of the left side road clearance and parking the car using reverse gear. How to have a better judgment in this regard? It is more difficult for me to drive the car on busy road than learning on a big ground. Request your guidance as I am loosing my confidence.
  15. wat is yr personal view on chevy 1.4 LS in comparison to Fiesta, SX4, Verna (all petrol)?? I think the chevy is better as a complete package. u can see the test drive report of VV jetta in the latest edition of Autocar.
  16. hi, I also like black but then the maintenance cost will be high. Ya, its a new colour as I didn't see on roads with other cars. Which car do u own ?? and which others are yr favourites. Do u like Aveo Limited edition??
  17. It is <?:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Cashmere (light golden).
  18. Hi AKS Thanks !! But are there few concerns with AVEO related to safety (Poorly performed in NCAP crush test) and noisy gear shift ?? In my view people are talking on these because they hv tested and read reviews on AVEO 2006 and not the latest AVEO of 2008 which was relaunced in 2007. What is the average milleage it is giving?? In my view the after sales service is excellent in my city and don't hv idea about its resale. Looks, FE and comfort wise, it is better than the other cars of its segment.
  19. hi, Hona delears are not available in Ranchi (where I live in). The cost of Verna is also higher and the milleage is low as compared to AVEO. What I liked in AVEO is that they are providing all the luxuries in their 1.4 LS SPECIAL EDITION like 1. Alloy wheels 2. Tubeless tyres,3. Leathers Up..4. 2 DIN 6 speakers KENWOOD music sys 5 Keyless entry and antitheft alarm etc. Few of these features are not available in SX4, Fiesta and Verna at Just 6.61 L (They are offering a discount of 12 K to Reliance employee). Hi wat's yu idea. I am a family person and not an entusiastic driver. Please advise the pros and cosn of AVEO
  20. hi, Nice test drive report. Thanks, Can u pl update me further as I am confused among FORD FIESTA, SWIFT DEZIRE, MARUTI SX4 AND AVEO 1.4 (all Petrol sedans)?? Should I go for Aveo 1.4 LS Special edition?? I hv heard that performance wise Fiesta is better (??) but Looks wise Aveo is far better. Have you faced any difficultiy/trouble so far with Aveo??
