Detailed Hindustan Motors Ambassador Review

What's Good?

Excellent ground clearance, boot space for whole family for holiday tour or shopping, a body guard for the travelers compared to modern cars with same facilities, normal cost of replacement of major/important parts will be much less than modern cars.If your car's battery, harnessing,ignition system etc are good, its a trouble free vehicle. The KSRTC buses, lorries and other cars give due time (respect) while overtaking this vehicle. They take ample time to take overtaking which reduce chance of accidents. From the day to day accidents reports in news papers, the percentage of accidents involved with ambassador cars are very low. This reveals the the security aspect.Steering gear gives very comfortable driving (the vehicle is 1988 model) which gives space to accommodate one more person in the front seat compared to floor gear.

What can improve?

Interior Appearance, quality of body material (seems to be of poor quality as it is attacked by rust very easily compared to Maruthi or other new generation vehicles with same price), facilities such as ABS, navigation, blue tooth, reverse camera, special edition coil spring suspension version with biggers and wider tyres, etc. Steering gear versions may also be produced.

Overall Comments

If one needs safe and comfortable travel in all terrains, rather than high speed rash driving in city roads and national roads only, then this is one the best choice. One who owns will like to love this for the convenience of its multipurpose utility.
