Summary:

Very good car overall with some reservations

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

The car is very reliable.

Fuel-consumption is friendly at 280 Km per 20 liters on highway, 220 Km in- town.

One cause of discomfort is its very initial acceleration causes other passengers to get a neck jerk of a mild to moderate intensity.

Engine somehow loud with non-idle RPM.

Another relative disadvantage is caused by a new type of essentially continuous-gear transmission system that removes the sudden acceleration/"kick" from pressing down fuel throttle and makes acceleration rather dull, necessitating driver to shift gears often for even minor up-slopes. I guess as it is this does cause a saving of fuel overall.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
