    This car should have also come with an Auto transmission in the first place here in India. I don’t know what stupid strategies HM keeps playing. Its a good car but for people like myself who prefer the convenience of an Automatic gear box will be left disappointed. We have stop and go traffic situation every day specially in Mumbai and manual is a pain to use.

    HM, get the refreshed model here in India SOON with all the tech and auto box and then see the response you get from potential buyers. I will be first in line to book one.
