      Car traveled more than 500 kms in 15 days on office runs and errands, mostly city run and few highway runs. Measured fuel economy using tankful method, it came out to be 16.1 kmpl as expected. I am yet to cross 80 kmph, car didn't get a chance to spread her wings.

      One new observation is that rear is quite bouncy on speed bumps under minimal load like 2-3 passengers, though it glides nicely on bad roads. Tyres pressure is 29 psi as recommended. I am yet to find a way out to not to start the audio when engine is cranked, it annoys me and kind of botheration to mute the speakers on every engine start. Android Auto and Suzuki Smartplay Studio apps connections are seamless and quick.

      Being used to Diesel, I am bit struggling with the car in first gear. I.e. when I am being careless with clutch and accelerator synchronization in 1st gear, it lugs and vibrates when starting from standstill or at times I apply excess pressure on accelerator.

      This is what happens when I drive a Small petrol after Driving diesels.
      The torque at idle is addictive in diesel.

      Suzuki cars don't auto center like Hyundai.
      If you are used to Hyundai then Maruti would feel odd.
      If you used to Maruti, then Hyundai would feel like a toy steering.
