It is a really good City car, can't deny it. I like it much much better than the competition (back then) like WagonR, A-star, but I really regret on not considering the Polo base model back then as compared to this. Good mileage in city and on highway(if driven under 100kmph). High Speed stability for the highways is poor, cross 100kmph mark and it floats like a boat stuck in tides.
The suspension is too soft for my liking, very bouncy on uneven/broken roads (the side to side body movement is too much). Other than that the engine for a 1.1 is pretty nippy, good enough for City not highways. Peppy engine which loves to rev high so it's fun driving it in the city adding the compact size. Build quality not really the German standards but it is true than these old Hyundai and Maruti (1st gen Swift, SX4) were much better in terms of quality as compared to the cars they sell today. The interior plastic quality too is good especially for the price we payed back then.
Coming to the service, I didn't enjoy the service experience much and seems costly at 5-7k for a regular service at an authorised dealership. I now get the service at the Bosch service center and it is really good, the service is very much satisfactory and the bills are much lower.
I believe it's a great city runabout with happy revving, peppy engine, good amounts of space and great mileage with only downside being the way too soft suspension setup and bouncy ride.
