San Storm 1.2 has been one my favourite car

By Rajagopal on 29 September 2011

San Storm 1.2 has been one my favourite car since it entered the Indian car market and has been correctly stated as India's first convertible. My experience with this car has been very pleasant owing to its sleek and unique structure, decent engine response and excellent fuel economy.

However, the lack of superior features in the interior is one of its major drawbacks. Lack of power seats, driver passenger air-bag system and traction control system makes this vehicle unfavourable for purchase. On the other hand, brilliant engine dynamics makes up for the inferior cabin space.

Powered with a 1.2 litre, 1149cc engine, handling this car is very simple in any kind of driving circumstances. I think the fuel economy this engine is able to deliver is high favourable. The car gives a mileage of 12.2 km per litre in cities and 16.6 km per litre mileage on the highways.

I was a bit disappointed with lesser safety features in the cabin. The car neither has an Anti-Lock Braking system nor driver passenger air-bags. However, the car does come with an engine immobilizer and child safety locks. Overall, the car scores point for a unique structure but still can improve drastically from interior features aspect.
