Driving Impressions

The reviewer is on a relatively busy highway to test drive this car. She mentions that the vehicle feels adequate in city driving conditions. However, it feels slightly pushed when driven hard on the highways. Also, she suggests to go for the 5-speed manual gearbox. It will lend you a better control in comparison to the 4-speed auto. Because it is light, the low power and torque is not worrisome. Apart from that, the ride is smooth and comfortable. To have a family car at this price point with the kind of features on offer on the Fronx is certainly an exciting proposition.
