THE HYUNDAI GUY

Will the i30 be com­ing to In­dia? When was the Santro Xing launched? Amir has all the an­swers

Evo India - - SPECIAL FEATURE: 20 YEARS OF HYUNDAI -

AMIRREZA IS A TRUE BLUE Hyundai fan. He has been a keen fol­lower of the Korean car­maker since its in­cep­tion in our country. He keeps tabs on all things Hyundai and is aware of ev­ery­thing that HMIL does. And with a Santro Xing and Elite i20 in his garage, he walks the talk. “It has been one and a half decades with Hyundai. The cars are ex­tremely re­li­able, com­fort­able and low on main­te­nance. The Santro is like a peppy dragon. It's ultra re­spon­sive and be­haves like a puppy – happy to play at all times. The i20 on the other hand is very stylish and pre­mium. It’s big enough and comes loaded with fea­tures.” Hav­ing lived in Mum­bai, he un­der­stands the value of an empty park­ing spot. “I al­ways ended up smil­ing while park­ing the Santro in the tini­est of places where oth­ers couldn’t even think of putting their cars.” He also says that Hyundais have im­proved dras­ti­cally over the years. “They are lit­er­ally the best cars in their re­spec­tive seg­ments when it comes to the aes­thet­ics – both on the out­side as well as the in­side.”

Amir is very par­tic­u­lar about ser­vic­ing his car. “I al­ways drive the cars to the work­shop on my own. I think, men have a spe­cial con­nec­tion with not just their lady but their car too. And the ser­vice cen­tre guys know that. They never stop me from watch­ing my cars be­ing ser­viced.”

What next Amir? “I think I’ll get the Tuc­son next. Its hand­some looks and out­stand­ing ride qual­ity has won me over.” Amir knows his Hyundais well we must say.

“They are lit­er­ally the best cars in their re­spec­tive

seg­ments"
