      Chennai>Bangalore . 362 km . 20.5 kmpl

      Did Chennai - Bangalore drive, left Chennai Royapettah home at 6:45 pm yesterday, dined at Sai Sangeet near Walaja toll plaza for 45 minutes and reached Bangalore Basaveswara Nagar home at 2:06 am today. It rained in Krishnagiri and surroundings.

      Paytm FASTag behaved flawlessly in all toll plazas. There was a big queue at Attibele toll plaza at all the lanes, but we passed through the exclusive lane without waiting. Here are the timings:

      How does the car manage stop-go on climbing slopes in D mode as my test drives were futile.I noticed a good 3 sec delay where car had rolled back hit a biker as well, TATA SA had given a wide smile and asked me to "Just give more power" !

      Is this configurable to a lesser delay say like a hill assist ?

      Since this is my first automatic, I am still learning the nuances of AMT. Nowadays, I drive in Sport mode always on highways and City mode in city. I find my Nexon climbs the ghats easily. The ghat road climbed four times was Melumalai located between Krishnagiri and Hosur, where buses and lorries struggle to climb, whereas Nexon zips through them easily.

      I experienced the creep function does not set in when starting from stand still unless the brake is pressed after starting the engine. After releasing the brake, it starts moving at a faster speed, especially while reversing, which is scary. So, I press the brake after starting the engine and release it after a few seconds to prevent roll back.

      In the last couple of days, I washed and used the recently acquired detailing products from the US and now, B Diamond glitters brilliantly.

      I observed that if I try to reverse or drive forward, keeping the door open, the creep function does not set in and B Diamond stands still. When I accelerate, it slowly moves. Only if the door is closed, the creep function sets in - another good safety feature.
