Awesome Car ! — A responsive pocket rocket suitable for daily drive or on track. Highly customizable engine with a peppy turbo to give the oomph when needed. Great looks but not so suitable as a family car. Love everything else about this beast. :)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks + power = a great car like this :)

Cons: Not enough backseat room

M Ride — acceleration is really good, but the break power is not enough compared to the acceleration. Handling is perfect. built quality is very good. interior needs bit more styling work.Exterior is good but can be better modified. Fuel efficiency is quite high, and the maintenance cost is comparitively low. DiS ofcourse Z DA FuN CaR!!!

Pros: T z really a pocket rocket

Cons: nedds more brake power
