    Recently My cousin bought Etios and it was his first car, mainly driven by driver. I got to know after he bought it. I drove it in the city last week and the gear shifts are one of the worst in this category. The clutch was hard even after just 2.5 K at ODO. The engine has very less lag which makes it good to drive at City. The back seat space is very good. I hate the center console and looks like aftermarket and after thought. Did not drive in highway.

    I had to praise the car in limited way because not to disappoint him for his first car. He told that he bought the car for back seat and Toyota badge of reliability and other car he was considering was DZire. Thank god he dropped that because thats even worse. I just wished he had driven himself to know what a terrible car to drive it is. :sad1

    While sifting through some old auto magazines I found this on the last page. It was posted as a prank and in jest, but a few years down the line we were given the exact replica- Swift (un?)Dzire!

    Guys, lets hope he does not get a Punto and come at TFI and see what all we are talking here. :p

    No offence. My colleague today asked me about Avventura. He said he saw Polo cross, Etios cross and Avventura and would like to buy one when available. Otherwise he does not like any car from Fiat. As many would have guessed it right, he drives a dzire zdi. He says Punto has better AC than dzire, punto has heavy doors like Octavia, punto has big dashboard that gives big car feel but still does not like the car.

    Infact recently a Swift low end owner who bought it just 2 months ago, sat in my car for along drive and keep praising Punto for everything. Due to his wifes decision he has to opt swift. Such a sad story :(
