Author's Take

The initial booking numbers are quite impressive, and it seems like the brand's low-cost and feature-loaded package strategy is working. However, will it be able to stay ahead of segment leaders like Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Kia Sonnet, and Ford EcoSport? Well, the future will tell.
