  1. very very old technology and every manufacturer outside india already have everything shown here..... want to know the description? drive and Passenger dual stage airbag.. Side thorax airbag ... side curtain airbag ... knee airbag ...rear side airbag ... Active head restraints ... first stage pedestrian protection by bonnet lift and second stage protection against wind screen with active airbag ... :-)
  2. i think the best is Electro-Hydraulic like the ones in Fabia ... Hydraulic - Pros - Fantastic Feel of drive, most driver friendly & lot more accurate, can handle real high loads like all busses and trucks have hydarulic PS, Cons - Maintanance (imagine checking oils and leakages), ExWork costs, Lesser mileage (around 2~3%), Control of the Hydralic system is complicated and can not be switched on or off by wish of a will ... EPS - Pros - Light, best for city driving, no maintnance at all, higher mileage, Control system is sofisticated and there by can be switched on or off based on speed - mostly will be switched off at higher speeds as it becomes very sensitive, cheap even with controller Cons- vauge, lacks driver feel altogether, many a times you never know u have turned half or full ...
  3. i have i10... no problem what so ever at all ... i clocked a highway mileage of 21 and city of 15 w/o AC... as your choice is Diesel ... i would recommend you Fiat Palio 1.3 Qudrafire / Multijet ... Swift quality isnt great ..its rattles soon ...
  4. well.. I took my i10 today to Advaith Hyundai for a Body wash... after the work was done.. i was asked by one service engineer whether i am in urgency in taking the vehicle back.. when i said no... he told me that FUEL RAIL in i10 has to be replaced for certain BIN nos only... he also showed me the service buliten issued by HMIL... According to the letter it was written as follows.... the return less fuel system is introduced in India for the first time and there are some cases or bin number which have to be checked and if found need a replacement of the fuel rail.. upon confirmation with Advaith Head office i was advised that some pressure regulator have some dimensional problem and can cause fuel leakage ... This was done free of cost and i thank them to do this so soon ... APPRECIATE HYUNDAI effort in doing this...
  5. 65k kms.. 4yrs minimum... these stats are best suited for diesel... and city doesnt come with one.. SX4 has big blind spot issue and u aren't connecting with it ...then it leaves with you only two cars .. Verna & Fiesta ... (i never thought of GM in Bangalore due only one dealer and one service station) my choice .. FIESTA DIESEL ...u must also read the Top Gear review about this segment ... the last and most important ... to fit this car u gottu to stretch a little in your budget .. ;-)
  6. i10 awaiting three upgrades .. 1.1 Diesel CRDi... the new Gasoline & CNG Engine .....
  7. why compare santro with splash ...?? must we not compare Splash with the i10 ....
  8. take a close look at the third picture .... u can also see the "Interview with akira kamio" at Tokyo Motor show on youtube ... head room is quite less ....a tall Japanese can hardly fit in ... imagine a tall Indian ..
  9. according to the companys statement .. they sold 3144 i10s in november and have around 6000 bookings as of now (two weeks back) did u know ... they had maximum sales in Magna and they had more than expected bookings of magna (O).. which just proves the point that Indian customer are ready to pay if they get QUALITY and FEATURES ... the compact or mini segment is getting more matured and needs more fresh products like i10 ...
  10. ha ha ha ... looks at the quote with lots of stars in the swift mileage marathon... "Participants maintained speed limits as per city norms. The average speed of the 3 winners was 33 kmph taking city traffic conditions into account. "
  11. Heres more details about the driving and max speeds covered ... from Bangalore to Krishnagiri its part of quadrilateral.. so the speed was spot ion 100 at every opportunity else 80kph (Around 80kms) then return journey from mysore to bangalore spot on 100 or 80kph max ...(around 135kms) around 170kms no chance of crossing 70kph ... and around 40kms is Ghat section ...
  12. i am currently doing a mileage test in the city... but again this is without AC... you seldom get to use AC in bangalore... and i10 AC is too strong even at one.... but will update the post soon ...
  13. yes this is same as Speed it is super unleaded petrol... it is not equalent to Speed 93 or 98 but jsut Speed... i ALWAYS use Shell advanced in bike as well as car.. and find that its much smoother and better.... FRG .. i already wrote my review about i10 along with your i10 test drive report
  14. yes .. 33.56 anything wrong with that??... i still have the bill with me ... 33.560 L at the rate of 54.250 rs at Bangalore (for Super Unleaded)... if you haven't visited Shell, probably you should and find out about the accuracy till second decimal ... and fundoo service from Shell
  15. mmmm .... excuse me .... didnt get you... what is the litre problem you are reffering to ...
  16. didnt you know that I10 has different engine - four valve per cylinder - new ECM - new all aluminum block engine
  17. Hyundai i10 Mileage update Finally I completed my first long journey just with in two weeks of my i10. The details which the whole of net world is waiting for is right here, go on and fill your mind with the first hand experience Journey Details: Shell Fuel Station (Whitefield, Bangalore) to Krishnagiri (NH7)to Salem (NH7) --> Coimbatore (Traffic Filled four lane construction) --> Sathy (NH209) --> Aasanur (Ghat Section with 27 hairpin bends) --> Mysore --> Bangalore --> Shell Fuel Station (Whitefield) Road Details: Total Distance covered: 728.2 kms Around 50kms in City Around 40kms in Ghat section with 27 Hairpin bends Around 190kms of four lane Highways Rest all Two lane highways and some really bad roads Miscellaneousdetails: Four Adults in thecar for the entire journey with sufficient luggage (boot fully occupied) AC was used sparingly Mileage Details: 1) Filled Full tank at Shell Fuel Station with Shell Advanced fuel (till the grim after some vehicle shake) 2) Traveled a journey of 728.2kms 3) Came back to SAME shell fuel station in Whitefield and filled full tank with SAME fuel
  18. I will not buy UVA for one and only reason that it is due for a change .... UVA's another problem is noise.. which is spoken by all the Auto mags... UVA tends more noisier when you are accelerating in the city ... and also it feels a little slow to pick till some RPM ...
  19. hey ankit ... u can see my review on page 6 ... and i10 ERA is competitor to WagonR, Estilo, Spark..indica.. Palio Stile..Santro itself ... but I10 Magna will compete with Swift LXi, Getz 1.1, & UVA base models..
  20. oops i messed up my English while i was thinking too much about the problem .. one more thing i want to ask ... can you recall any particular place where you had filled fuel and only then this problem occurred ...?
  21. Gpriyesh .... can you recall whether your fiesta had this occasional starting issue only after the engine parked for some time after a long drive ....?? what i mean is ... consider the following example ... you have a sufficiently long drive and engine is quite hot... u park some where or leave the engine down for some time and THEN there is this starting problem occurs... recall and let us know .... this might just be a classic case of Vapor lock in gasoline engines... to get over it... either u need to get the pressure regulator on the fuel rail or fuel line adjusted or change the fuel pump ... i strongly think this is vapor lock condition in your car ... careful..can affect your fuel consumption drastically ... indica also has this issue... u can see sometimes the indica fan keeps running for sometime even after the engine is off .... bad design ... but its stupid indica..
  22. i10 will have a diesel power train by mid 2008... it will be a 1.1 CRDi engine... probably the smallest CRDi Bosch has ever developed...(excluding the 2cylinder CRDi for Tata 1 lak).. i also speculate that the engine will be entirely from South Korea like Verna or may be from Detroit Diesel like Viva.... after the i10CRDi launch.. it will be i20 launch... say Bbye to Getz ..
  23. i just filled Shell Advantage till the rim.. will take some time to come up with mileage calculations... one more thing i wish HMC wouldn't have removed is the Leg rest next to the clutch paddle... it had high utility ....
  24. my close circles in Auto world have a grape vine figure of 6.5 to 7.5 ... likely it will compete with Chevy SRV rather than Swift/Getz/U-VA/Fit/i20/
  25. "Q" Issues galore with Indica... you might end up getting a very peppy car or might get a very fuel efficient car... its all luck... sometimes the brand new just come from showroom cars also squeak... there are loads of areas where indica could be improved... the reason the car is Omnipresent as a taxi is running cost of DLS.. Avg Rs2 or < per km
