Should I buy one?
It’s all about looking at the bigger picture with this tiny car. The in-built flaws of its original, budget-driven design remain — the top-heavy shape, tiny wheels, limited cabin storage and small boot — but you really have to hand it to Tata Motors for trying to bring it up to speed with the competition. With the addition of comforts like a Bluetooth-equipped audio system, power steering, an openable hatch and, of course, the automatic gearbox, it’s now even better at being an intra-city compact car. This is only helped by its core strengths — passenger space, ease of use, compactness and value. And speaking of value, you must remember that this will likely be the most affordable (and fuel-efficient) automatic car in the world when it goes on sale later in May 2015, and for its target audience, the few inconveniences will be easily overlooked.
