Conclusion:

With cars like the Honda Amaze, Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the upcoming Tata Zest, this vehicle has plenty of competition. The wait is for the ride quality and the stability of the vehicle, which will be covered once we get our hands on one of them. For this car to last in the Indian market this vehicle should deliver with the mileage that the company has claimed.
