    I was pretty happy with the car in the city, so I figured it was time to take it out on the highway — there’s nothing like a long drive to fully understand your car. We were headed to a little campsite near Vashind, not too far from Mumbai. With three people in the back, it was a bit of a squeeze, but it’s not uncomfortable; at least my friends didn’t seem to complain. The air-con works quite well; the rear AC vent, though a useful addition, doesn’t do much to enhance cooling.   

    The highway is one place where the Grand is a mixed bag, there’s a lot of road noise and you can hear every sharp bump you go over. Also, Hyundai should have tuned the engine to get the kind of jack-of-all-trades nature of the Swift’s motor. It’s just not got the legs for the highway, you often have to downshift and give it a real push to overtake at high speeds. But like we said earlier, this is a car for relaxed driving, and primarily in the city. Over the span of three days, I would have driven over 300km, and with no signs of tiredness, so that’s saying something. It’s definitely a car I wouldn’t mind owning if I only drove to work and back and didn’t care too much about driving thrills. And my favourite part of the car? Its fuel economy — one full tank, a total of Rs 2750 and 750km on the trip computer. Sweet.
