The brake pedal is also quite firm and the system makes the vehicle stop from 60 mph in 114 feet. The suspensions are very well tuned enabling you to drive seamlessly. Disk brakes are available at both back and front, which are very responsive. On the highway, this compact car can easily cruise to speeds in triple digits, although steering gets a little firm.
It comes with six-speed automatic transmission in petrol and 9-speed automatic in diesel with automatic engine start/stop feature available, which could be turned off. It provides really good maneuverability and an excellent grip due to its 18-inch tires.
