I was pleasantly surprised by how silent this car is. Even my Maruti Swift petrol is not this silent.

BHPian smilingakash recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Hello all,

I finally got the delivery of my Silver Knight.

Delivery Day

The formalities were mostly done during PDI so delivery was a breeze. It took me an hour to reinspect and take a demo from the salesperson on the car.

Dealer added 5 Lt of petrol in the car so did not have to rush to a Petrol pump (Although I did venture anyway).

Initial Review

The car is extremely silent. Coming from a diesel vehicle (Duster), I was pleasantly surprised at how silent the cars can be. Even my Swift petrol is not this silent.

1) Fuel Economy

The car always tries to be on EV mode (Eco mode) and with light foot (so far), I am easily hitting 27+ km/l.

2) Acceleration

Tried all modes. Even in the eco-mode, it does move very quickly off the line. Amazing for a city ride. Have not pushed it beyond 80 Kmph but no complaints about its pickup.

3) NVH

No complaints so far. Have not done a highway run so will update you on this topic.

4) Road Presence

The car looks dashing. Looks grand on the outside and is well-proportioned. On the exterior, you do feel the money is well spent.

5) Interiors

Could have been better. However coming from Duster, this was still an upgrade. One thing which bums me out is the driver-side window pane buttons. They are not backlit (Except auto button for windows) and gives total cheap Maruti feel. Cost cutting done at the worst possible place.

Front seats are comfortable but I believe for some of the oversized adults, the bucket seats may not be perfect.

Rear seats- Biggest issue is the rear bump. Had that been better managed the space would have been adequate. Currently, only 2 adults and a child can manage.

6) Media Center + HUD

Android Auto and Apple Car Play work seamlessly and the screen is lag-free which is pleasant.

GPS with Android Auto gave me directions on my HUD as well as Tachometer. I am happy with the navigation feature on the HUD.

7) Auto AC + Ventilated Seats

AC is effective (Although we are hitting winter in Delhi) and hope it will take care of the thin sheet for the sunroof.

Ventilated seats are a blessing in the scorching Delhi heat during the summer season.

Overall Verdict

There has been a lot of confusion created over the car and its practicality. However, unless the boot is a major concern (It is doable for weekend trips), the car looks and drives very well. You will not be disappointed.
